UK patients and IVF abroad

The main reasons why UK patients in need of gamete donation or surrogacy travel abroad for IVF is related to the cost of treatment and the fact that there is a shortage of egg and sperm donors in the UK.

Since 1 April 2005, donors can be known to the children born as a result of their donation once he or she turns 18. This is the reason why the is a shortage of donors in the United Kingdom.
