Why do infertility patients go abroad for treatment?:

The primary reason is financial, although from talking with the Creating a Family community, it seems that most people don't go abroad for basic IVF. It is possible to find US infertility clinics that are more reasonably priced and the cost saving abroad, with travel factored in, is not so great. Most of the people we hear from who are considering infertility tourism are doing so for egg donation and/or surrogacy. Other reasons, people might choose to go abroad for fertility treatment are:

  • Availability of treatment with little restriction on age, weight, marital status, sexual orientation, etc.

  • Seeking a specific treatment/technique that might not be available in home country (ICSI, PGD, embryo cryopreservation, gender selection, etc.)

  • Privacy
