About Cyprus IVF Hospital
Cyprus IVF Hospital first opened in 1995, although it operated under a different name, Famagusta Medical Centre Hospital, until 2017 when it changed the name. Upon obtaining their ISO 9001 certification, thanks to its excellence in care due to both the quality of treatment and the treatment itself, the clinic became the first in North Cyprus to hold this highly coveted certification.
Once you are inside the clinic you will notice that it has a very sleek and modern appearance, with a range of light colours such as cream and light grey, as well as a light brown in places, with the light colours in place to help all of its patients feel calm and relaxed while waiting for their treatment. All of the rooms are clean and well designed, to provide you with the comfort you require on your journey to parenthood.
Cyprus IVF Hospital is a very inclusive clinic and is accepting of more patients than most, with them able to offer treatment to women up to the age of 55, although those over 45 will require special permission for certain tests. The clinic is also accepting of patients from the LGBTQ+ community, and are able to offer treatment to lesbian couples, as well as to transgender and non-binary patients. For two mothers looking to have children, the clinic has a treatment called reciprocal IVF where both women will take part in the experience of bringing a baby into the world. If you are a patient who is unable to carry a child then the clinic will offer gestational surrogacy and will create embryos using the patient’s own gametes.
If you require a donor then this clinic is right for you, as they have access to a large and diverse donor network. Thanks to this diverse network of donors the clinic is able to offer treatment to patients of many nationalities and ethnicities (including Caucasian, Scandinavian, African, Asian, and Arab), to ensure that their needs are fully met. All donors, for both eggs, embryos and sperm, are given check-ups and their family and medical history is taken, to ensure that the donors are the healthiest donors available, this way the clinic can ensure that all donations you receive will be of the highest quality to ensure higher success rates.
A key aspect of the care provided by the clinic is their 24-hour care, which allows you access to their expertise at any time and on any day. Sometimes you may have a question on your mind about your treatment or a concern, and you don’t want to wait until opening hours, thanks to their 24-hour care you can ask your questions and have your concerns answered as soon as you can pick up the phone and dial their number, or contact them online if you prefer. And thanks to their multilingual staff you can have your questions answered in many different languages, so communication should be no issue at all.
Because the clinic has your comfort in mind they even offer three different types of treatment plans when it comes to your stay in Cyprus:
- Option 1 – You have tests performed either in your home country or Cyprus but everything else is done in Cyprus, with you being required to travel there for a 1-time stay of 21 days.
- Option 2 – You travel to Cyprus twice, once for 3 days and once for 7, totaling 10 days. Tests and medicine are all given in Cyprus but the medical protocol application is performed in your home country.
- Option 3 – You travel to Cyprus one time for 7 days, but tests, medicine and the medical protocol application are all performed in your home country.
With all 3 options you are required to travel to Cyprus for fertilisation, egg collection and embryo transfer, but the rest is up to you.
