Each year more and more women travel abroad for fertility treatments. One of the most popular destinations for undergoing in vitro fertilization is Spain. It is not just the price which is quite attractive for those seeking to undergo a fertility treatment, but also the current legislation in some European countries like Spain and Greece which allows for anonymous donation. Hence, ironically, the country of “origin” for a great number of British children happens to be Spain.

The benefit of anonymous egg donation in Spain, which is regulated by the state, enables many women to conceive without having to fear that they would meet the donor one day. Additionally, another great merit of undergoing an IVF treatment abroad is the high degree of anonymity for both the patient and the donor.

The kind of patients who choose a fertility treatment abroad varies from region to region, however, recently the tendency started leaning towards women above their desired reproductive age. Samantha Brick is one of such women, who finally managed to become pregnant at the age of 40, and give birth to her son after several failed IVF attempts undertaken in the UK. Most importantly, the anonymity of either egg or sperm donors means that waiting lists are virtually non-existent, ensuring a quick commencement of the treatment.

Spain is the most advanced country when it comes to various fertility treatments and the latest assisted reproductive technologies. There are more than 200 reproductive centers in Spain; 38 public and 169 private. Moreover, every donor has to undergo thorough clinical tests before being admitted to the donation process, making fertility treatments requiring egg or sperm donation more secure.

In UK many couples become discouraged and desperate when they get to know that an egg donation can take from 18 months to two years of time. This was the case with the Dowson couple who had no choice but to undergo a fertility treatment in Spain given the long waiting lists in the UK due to the existing shortage of egg donors. Time is a crucial factor in matters of fertility, so that a long waiting time could possibly diminish the prospects of conceiving.

Conclusively, the sunny, Mediterranean country known for its spectacular beaches has become one of the most favorable locations for so-called fertility tourism. The existing technologies to treat infertility are the most advanced in Spain, whereas the amount of donors is never short. Not surprisingly that we see more and more “Spanish children” and happy parents in many places across Europe. Finally, the current legislation in matters of egg and sperm donations, surrogate motherhood, etc. are more favorable in Spain than in other European countries.
