Interview with Cyprus Dunya IVF Medical Director Dr. Berk Angün

Dr. Berk Angün, could you please tell us what makes your country stand out from other medical destinations?

Cyprus as a medical destination for IVF attracts a lot of patients from all over the world due to different reasons. First of all, Cyprus has very favourable legislation system which allows all types of Infertility treatments, forbidden in a lot of countries such as gender selection, egg donation, treating single women and women over 50. Second of all, Cyprus warm climate reduce the level of stress and it is not a secret that success rates can vary accordingly to the level of stress.  Clinical success rates and amount of live births are very high in comparison with other medical destinations. Finally, Cyprus clinics are not overcrowded with patients and Doctors are paying a lot attention and care to every single case of infertility.

What are the things couples should be careful about while choosing a clinic for egg donation? Choosing a clinic for egg donation is not an easy thing to do. A couple should be very careful while deciding which clinic to go for an egg donor cycle. First of all clinic should be trustworthy, patient oriented and experienced. Patient should be not afraid to ask all the possible questions they might have, share their worries and doubts. If a couple is relaxed and happy with the clinic they have chosen, then it is easier for a Clinic team to help them and achieve desired pregnancy.

What are the standards of treatment in your country?

Cyprus provides highest standards of treatments. In Cyprus infertility treatments are offered mainly by private clinics. All registered IVF clinics are following the rules and regulations of the Ministry of Health and Cyprus legislation system in terms of IVF sector. Cyprus clinics are experienced in the field and always improve the process of providing infertility care.
