03 Mar Why to choose Spain for your Assisted Reproduction treatment?
By Reproclinic Editorial Committee
Spain is the country in Europe where most assisted reproduction treatments are held every year; thus being, together with the United States, the cradle of reproductive medicine.
Every year, Spanish fertility clinics receive a growing number of international patients. But why this increasement?
Far from what you might think, besides being an attractive destination for its tourist appeal, the reality is that Spain is totally at the cutting edge of assisted reproduction in Europe. The quality of the services offered, as well as the constant advances made in research to improve the treatments make success rates and effectiveness a guarantee of success and a factor to be taken into account when a patient decides to travel abroad to start a treatment.
On the other hand, the current legislation in Spain is more flexible than in other European countries. As a matter of fact, there are no restrictions for women that are considering single motherhood or women couples that can perfectly undergo any treatment to seek pregnancy. It is also the case that sperm and egg donations are not anonymous in most European countries, a fact that drives many of the candidates to drop the idea of completing any donation, which in turn leads to endless waiting lists to start a treatment. In Spain, donor’s anonymity is absolutely mandatory by law, and, thus, by the way, time problems are more easily avoided.
