Unlike European countries, in Turkey IVF legislation does not allow the donation of eggs, sperm, or embryos. IVF using own eggs and sperm is permitted and available in the entire country. Whilst you may think it is a bit restrictive, the cost of IVF can be half of that in the UK and this is what makes Turkey a perfect IVF destination to consider if you are on a budget and looking for treatment with your own gametes.
You should know that IVF clinics in Turkey are inspected every six months by the Ministry of Health and the equipment, staff, physical environment and medical records are inspected.
The capital of Turkey is Ankara, while Istanbul is its largest city and financial centre. Turkey is also a wonderful holiday destination as it is home to one of the oldest permanently settled regions in the world and the oldest known man-made religious structure, a temple dating to circa 10,000 BC. The country is surrounded by seas on three sides: the Aegean Sea to the west, the Black Sea to the north and the Mediterranean Sea to the south. The Turkish climate is continental and it is generally hot and dry in most parts.
IVF treatment in Turkey is considered to be highly competitive in terms of overall costs and is of high quality matching all needed standards.
