What is the best IVF clinic?
Many patients ask what is “the best IVF clinic” but they struggle to find an answer. Choosing an IVF clinic can be a difficult decision as a clinic which may be good for one patient won’t necessary be good for the next. That leads us to ask the questions… what is the best IVF clinic and how do we describe the best IVF clinic? Maybe it is the one where somebody else has had a successful treatment? Maybe it also depends on the treatment type – egg donation, ivf with own eggs or ivf with PGS?
Or maybe it’s the one with positive feedback from patients, the best reviews, offering an outstanding customer-centered approach and performing outstanding treatments in their field.
There is not a best IVF Clinic for everyone. The clinic which is best for someone may not necessary be “the best” for you.
As a patient you need to know that successful treatment may depend on many factors including the patient’s individual situation including their diagnosis, medical background and treatment history. There are many great, well experienced IVF clinics in Europe – but guess what… they also have patients who do not have successful IVF cycles. It doesn’t mean they are “bad clinics”. In some circumstances the treatment might be very difficult and the prognosis for the patient may not be good. The “Best IVF clinic” will inform you of the likely success of any treatment and whether there is a possibility that you will require more than one IVF cycle.
A great fertility clinic isn’t just one that can give you effective treatment, it’s one with compassionate staff, clear pricing, seamless administrative processes and exceptional emotional support. Find out more about how to choose a clinic, preparing for your appointment and what to do if something goes wrong.

|Spain||199||4.4||Our embryo transfer will take place on March 24th, 2022. We are incredibly excited and hope that we will get closer to our dream soon.
We feel that we are in very good hands at the clinic. All employees are incredibly friendly and our questions are always answered very quickly. In addition, we communicate with us in German, which of course simplifies everything. We can recommend the clinic to everyone who also wants to realize their dream of one day holding their own child in their arms. But let's keep our fingers crossed for now.

|Spain||124||4.3||You're reading this because you're searching for an IVF Clinic. I was in your shoes. Combing through reviews, stats, treatment options, etc. Let me tell you this: no matter the outcome here, from our very first video call with the doctor I knew we found the right clinic. This clinic is easy to work with, IMO affordable, had a variety of treatment options and what I appreciated is that when the first cycle was a no go, they changed up the plan for better results. For both cycles, I spent several weeks in Alicante so the doctor and staff could support me directly. I did all my bloodwork and scans at the clinic (you can use your own doctor at home though). I was often solo while my husband had to be back in Italy working. I felt so welcome and cared for. When I was scared and stressed, they knew it and helped calm me. They even called me on a weekend after hours when I was panicking. When I was calm and brave, they stood beside me and were genuinely excited with me. From the admins at the desk, my personal assistant, to the nurses, doc H, the lab, and the specialist in the OR, these people cared about our results. They were fighting for us, WITH us. When we got bad news, they even cried with us. I really felt special working with this team. They are very communicative and answered questions quickly; professional and it's evident, they know IVF! I love Dr H and I love my assistant Maria. This clinic truly changed our life. And in the end, after 4 cycles (2 in Italy and 2 with IVF Spain) we had 1 embryo survive, our loan survivor. Our designated survivor! We had a fresh transfer and as of today, we are 6 weeks and 3 days pregnant. I'm 41 years old. Again, no matter the outcome I will still recommend this clinic. Every woman, every story, every journey is so different...no one can guarantee this will work or your dreams will come true. Or that even this clinic is the best one for you. But we CAN tell you to keep fighting and trust the process. I was only going to do 3 cycles. 3. We were encouraged to try 1 last time and here we are pregnant. I can also tell you that working with IVF Spain was the best decision we made through our IVF journey.
|Spain||75||4.5||I am a Single Mother By Choice and I am very happy that I chose ReproClinic for the most important treatment of my life. My doctor was prepared of my file and medical background from the beginning of the first online no-commitment consultation. My patient coordinator was always available and held my hand even in urgent situations of purchasing medicine abroad by contacting the pharmacy directly. I approached several clinics initially, but this was the only team where I felt that personalised support and attention will contribute to success. And it did.

|Spain||52||3.8||The care and support received through the process was 10/10. I felt so comfortable and informed throughout the process, with the opportunity to talk to a doctor whenever I needed. I travelled from the UK and it was a really easy process and a lot quicker and cheaper than UK clinics. I had some bad experiences with clinics in the UK and couldn’t believe the difference in service. I have bouncing boy after one attempt through donation of eggs and sperm. I highly recommend this professional and caring institution.

|Equipo Juana Crespo|
|Spain||183||4.0||After a diagnosis of low ovarian reserve where I was directed almost directly towards egg donation (I am 31 years old) and a failed stimulation due to medication errors in another center, I arrived at juana crespo. Here they were very clear, we were going to need several stimulations to achieve our objective and thus be able to have frozen embryos for the future, also not all the cycles were going to be the ideal ones to do a stimulation. I also needed a revitalize cycle to improve the response of my ovaries. But after less than a year, today I can say that I am 8 weeks pregnant and I have frozen embryos for the future. Eternally grateful to the entire team, especially Dr. de Prados, to dr. Juana Crespo and my Anita.
|Spain||262||4.5||I am grateful to and positively impressed by Barcelona IVF team and facilities for our in vitro fertilization process.
I reached the fertility clinic around five months ago. I was appointed to the clinic by my gynecologist after a salpingectomy treatment —which was never expected, you know.
Throughout the process, I learned so much and I feel fortified. I also feel lucky for counting with the best maternity journey I could have had. Because it is the only one I know 🤞🏽
We are thankful to Barcelona IVF & cherish the whole team!! Special kudos to the many caring professionals at BCN IVF that helped us: Dra. Serra, Dra. Ximena, dear Fred & Cristina, the assistants Laura and Karina, many others, & at last Iris, Alex and the laboratory.
My partner and I are super happy! And even happier THIS WEEK when we discovered we are pregnant. 💛

|Spain||198||4.7||My wife Elena and I were looking for a clinic to be able to realize our dream of becoming mothers, after numerous interviews via Skype we met the staff of the igin clinic and we immediately felt at ease.
Along our path, despite the difficulties due to Covid, they have always been available to answer our thousand questions and to reassure us at every stage. Knowing that at any time of the day there is always someone ready to help you is in my opinion a decisive factor for those who take this path, especially thousands of km away.
Now we hold our little prince born a month ago in our arms and we couldn't be more grateful to them.
In addition, Bilbao is a beautiful and welcoming city, which makes this adventure even more enjoyable.
A heartfelt thanks to Erika, Nicholas, Stefania and all the medical staff for making this possible. Soon…

|Spain||323||4.0||It was our last try after many unsuccessful IVFs. As we tried for 15 years to get pregnant and my age of 45 my hopes were not very high, however I got pregnant with their program of blood-thinners additional
Progesterone injections and hormones. The pregnancy was perfect no issues and I delivered a healthy baby boy. I am really grateful to the team.
--- Uta I
|Spain||232||4.2||Without mincing words, this has to be the best fertility clinic there is (there, I said it. You're free to disagree with me, it still doesn't change anything). I call them the FC Barcelona of fertility clinics. But, unlike the other FC Barcelona that have only one Messi, this particular FC Barcelona have a team made up of many Messis, both at their branch in Clane and at their headquarters in Barcelona.
I and my partner owe our twin baby boys to their efficiency and professionalism.
Our profound gratitudes go to these "Messis" who played one part or the other to make sure our dreams become a reality; Dr. Edgar Mocanu, Dr. Osman Shamoun, Dr. Veronique Moens, Dr. Trigas, to mention but a few.
Our thanks also go to the several other unsung "Messis" who contributed their own quota behind the scenes in actualisation of these dreams. People like Florence, Anissa, Katie Cassidy and Sonya Johnson at Clane. Not forgetting the very efficient and professional lab technicians and staff who always go about their duties with a smile on their faces.
I can't thank you guys enough and I also cannot recommend this clinic highly enough.

|Spain||148||4.4||After many failed IVF attempts my husband and I decided to try one last protocol with our own eggs before moving ahead with egg donation. Our interest in Bernabeu Madrid was strong from the beginning because they seem to be the only institute with a department that specializes on low ovarian response and because we heard great success stories.After a first consultation with Dr Romero online we decided to go for Bernabeu Madrid. Dr Romero’s proposal was the most agressive treatment wise and sounded the most plausible to achieve success and since we only wanted to do one more round we decided to go all in with her proposal. Dr Romero also gave us a good solid and professional impression from the beginning, and god were we right about our choice!!! The major plus point for me of this clinic is their staff (doctors, personal assistants, and embryologists!) The whole team is entirely composed of strong, intelligent, high qualified, modern, worldly and empathetic women, starting with Dr Romero. She is unbelievably knowledgeable, modern in her medical approach( she has read all the studies and new recommandations, and participates actively in the future of IVF practices in conferences), she is extremely gifted in her gynecological manipulations(I never had any pain under her care). She is a strong woman who truly understands what infertile women go through. Where she impressed me the most is through her immense emotional intelligence. She knew how I was feeling at all times, she knew exactly what to say to me in times of sadness, loss and dispair. She always believed in our project and motivated me so many times when I didn’t have the strength to go on anymore with believing. Additionally to her great medical knowledge she treats patients with her intuition and gut feeling, she knows when to push and when to stop. She is the major reason of our pregnancy’s success and my husband and I literally owe her our family.
(the same can be said of Dr Herencia who replaced Doctor Romero twice on my case, I felt exactly the same amount of talent, humanity and trust in her too :-). The second reason for our success was the quality of their embryology department. They were the only one of all of our fertility centers to achieve Blastocysts. They have the most advanced lab and best culture conditions. The quality of the embryology department is almost as important as the choice of the protocol if not more.It is a major point for this clinic.
This whole process was facilitated by the kindest personal assistants Ángeles Cuesta mainly and Laura Lopez. The personal assistant is the person you are most in touch with during the treatment and it is important that they have the capacity of calming you down, manage crisis and stay positive at all times. Ángeles and Laura have both of those qualities. They are true angels and answered all of my questions with patience and matronly care.
If I have to point out little negatives it’s the connections between the medical team, the personal assistants and the financial team. It is often quite slow, information about your file never circulate quite well, they tend to loose forms, and you sometimes get different informations from different sources depending of who is in charge of you that day, it can be frustrating. Sometimes like in my case if your protocol spreads over many months, they change your personal assistant and/or your doctor during treatment last minute which can be frustrating and unreassuring but I guess doctors and personal assistants are also allowed free time, and as I said the whole staff is absolutely lovely and you are in good hands no matter what. Lastly it is expensive, and it ended being more than we expected but it is a high-end clinic, so that has a price but we never regretted as it gave me our family.
Choosing this clinic was the best choice I made in my life and my husband and I owe them our twins and happiness. Birth of our twins planned for March! Gracias de corazon Bernabeu, I would choose you again with my eyes closed!

|(URE) Centro Gutenberg|
|Spain||174||4.8||We came to the clinic as a last resort at 43 years of age. They immediately made us feel part of their family. We had an initial visit with Dr Sanchez, who put me at ease. He took all our needs into consideration and we decided after researching many clinics to proceed with Ure Guttenberg.
The communication with the team is consistent and helpful. I never felt that my many emails and questions were a bother.
Unfortunately Covid put our plans on hold for nearly 2 years but as soon as we could travel they contacted us to book our flights. They had matched us 2 years prior and kept the Embryo safe for us.
We have been completely blessed with the most beautiful baby boy who is now 7 months old and perfect in every way. We cannot recommend this clinic more. Dr Sanches is a true miracle worker but the experience would not have been so wonderful without the ladies that support him.
Thank you so much for everything you have done for our little family here in Wales. UK.

|Spain||79||4.6||We are beyond grateful to Dr. Herrero and his team for guiding us on this amazing journey.
We were a very hard case, both in our 40s with bad numbers. The process was not easy, but with the expertise, great patience and experience, Dr. Herrero lead us to success. He gave us care, advice and guidance that made all the difference. He left no stone unturned and made sure that everything was absolutely perfect for our one precious viable embryo to get implanted-and it did! Also, a huge help in this whole process, and a guardian angel was Susanna Gallen, the coach that gave me strength and hope. Thank you all from the heart!

|Next Clinics Prague (formerly ProCrea Swiss IVF Center)|
|Czech Republic||51||3.3||We have two daughters from Procrea, one from 2017 - a successful 1st attempt by IVF and the other a successful 1st attempt at FET born in 2021. Thank you!
|Czech Republic||251||4.5||Me and my husband had Very Very Pleasant experiences at the UNICA Clinic in Prague. Thank God that He had made us find this clinic online and brought us there to try one more treatment!
Well, we had a long journey to have babies until we got there; 4 IUIs and 4 IVFs for 6years. Nothing worked for us and we had very disappointing experiences with other clinics. It seemed like they did not care about patients; their unkindness, carelessness, and indifference made the journey more challenging and tough. And they never give you clear answers when you ask questions especially about cost of individual items you do.
When we first saw the UNICA's website, however, everything was extremely clear and straightforward. We were very impressed by that. And they responded to our emails quickly for the time difference. They are 7 hours ahead of us.
They sent us the treatment plan, the itemized price list, etc. and we could understand how it would go and how much we would pay right away.
They assign you a coordinator to help you with everything, A to Z. Our coordinator was Klara and we were SO SO BLESSED to have HER!
She was always SWEET and KIND and willing to help us in small or big matters. She was so smart and thoughtful. There was another lady, named Pavla who responded to our emails at the beginning and she was also very kind and helpful. I really appreciate her, too, even though we did not get to meet her there.
Anyways, there was no hassle or problem for us to enter Prague, Czech Republic though it was during the pandemic time thanks to the very detalied explanations and documents provided by Klara.
When we first got to the UNICA Clinic, everyone at the reception desk was kind. Klara interpreted for us when we met the doctor Cepelak.
We really liked the doctor Cepelak because he always had this big warm smile on his face. He makes the atmosphere very light and joyful by speaking in a caring way, smiling brightly.
And we could see he knows what he's doing. After he checked my TSH level, he told me to take the thyroid medicine immediately to make the hormone level the most ideal to have babies.
No previous doctors mentioned that to me. They would say, it is normal and that was it.
Yes, it was in a normal range, but on the higher side of that normal range.
I would always feel cold, fatigued, and my skin was too tough and dry/itchy, etc.
Dr. Cepelak said, it is good to have TSH level lower than 2.5. By the time, I had taken the thyroid medicine for about 2 weeks, I started feeling very sharp in mind, had no brain fog anymore, my body felt warm, and the skin dryness was gone. WOW! I FELT JUST GOOD!
The transfer went very smoothly too because the doctor was very skilled and experienced! He did not have any issues putting the catheter in like the previous doctors had.
It was just quick and simple for him to do the transfer.
The quality of the embryo was best - AA.
I guess it was 5AA0.
Best of Best!!!
Well, Klara told me to use the urine pregnancy tester on day 14th, but being so impatient ...or if you have tried IVFs, you would understand how it feels to wait ...after you get the transfer done...that 14 days feel FOREVER!
I tested on the 7th day; at first, i did not see the test line...waiting...waiting...I started seeing a faint line!! How HAPPY!! The reason why I wanted to test that day was that I saw implantation blood that morning.
I continued testing each morning to see the test line getting darker each day...On 14th day, I got my lab done; and me and my husband were so thrilled to get the result!!! It was 559! I was Pregnant for sure!!
I am now almost 5weeks pregnant...waiting to see my OB-Gyn for ultrasound.
I just cannot believe this...I AM PREGNANT!
All my family members are partying...THANK GOD!
It was ALL GOD who opened our eyes and hearts to find UNICA and go to UNICA to try this last time!!!
UNICA IS BEST of BEST.
THEY KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING!
I WOULD RECOMMEND UNICA TO EVERYONE WHO WANTS TO HAVE BABIES! THANK YOU SO MUCH, UNICA! GOD BLESS YOU!

|GYNEM Fertility Clinic Prague|
|Czech Republic||70||4.4||I have been in contact with GYNEM for a few months and had the pleasure to visit Prague twice, once for the consultation and the second time for the actual treatment. Even though right now I am in the two week wait and I have no clue if I am pregnant or not, I cannot praise enough the staff, the doctors and my coordinator Antonia who made me feel so welcomed and supported throughout the whole process. Prague is a wonderful city and even though I mainly visited for the purposes of a fertility treatment, it also felt like a mini holiday and I managed to enjoy my time walking and visiting around. Thank you GYNEM for making this such a pleasant experience for us.

|Czech Republic||198||4.8||I am forever grateful for having chosen the clinic IVF CUBE in my challenging process of trying to get pregnant. My biggest dream ever came true in December when I gave birth to an adorable baby girl. I am extremely happy and thankful! IVF CUBE is a very clean and modern clinic, with highly educated, professional and friendly staff. They answer e-mails very quickly and give you the best of help, information and guidance when it comes to medication and giving you a well-functioning plan and they also contact you by phone when necessary. If you choose this clinic you can also combine your treatment there with a nice holiday in beautiful Prague. I give IVF CUBE my highest recommendations.
--- Tone Nordhagen
|Czech Republic||53||4.5||When I learned that I would have to undergo IVF, my colleagues at work, who had been through this, but already a long time ago, scared me with hyperstimulation syndrome and how they felt sick after the egg collection and immediately went to this in a few days fertilization, which then failed many more times. What a relief I was when they individually determined the dose of hormones for me before the stimulation, so there was no hyperstimulation sy. It is true that the person was not at his best, so I greatly appreciated that the embryos were allowed to be genetically tested for 6 weeks and I recovered in the meantime. Everything went right the first time. When I told my colleagues, they were amazed at how time went by. Unfortunately, this week I met a woman with experience from another clinic, where everything was still going on like it was with my colleagues about 15 years ago. She received a lot of hormones and IVF failed. So, in retrospect, I appreciate how lucky I was that I didn't have to go through this and I am grateful to Repromeda for their modern and individual approach.

|Europe IVF Prague|
|Czech Republic||133||4.5||We highly recommend the clinic! Beautiful, kind, professional people who told us step by step everything we were going to do, from treatments to risks. I did an embryo transfer on February 6th, and on the 15th I ran out of patience and took a test: positive! I didn't believe it, I did 3 more: positive! In 16 february, I did Beta HCG and it came out positive, pregnancy: weeks 4-5! We hope that everything will continue well from here on, but we recommend the EUROPE IVF Clinic! Thank you from the bottom of our heart to Dr. Tomilova Marina and of course to Alexandra Luchian who was always there for any question we had! You deserve 10 stars!

|North Cyprus IVF Centre|
|North Cyprus||23||3.6||We wholeheartedly recommend IVF treatments at the North Cyprus IVF Center. The hospital has a professional and friendly atmosphere. The treatment is always pleasant while taking into account the woman's feelings. We also want to specifically recommend Hana Shashaa, patient coordinator. Hana is always available to answer any question, by phone, email and WhatsApp. Hana always welcomes us with joy and a smile. Hana helped us with everything from providing information about the COVID restrictions to finding a taxi to the border crossing.
To our great joy, now we can even report success because we got pregnant!!
Many thanks to the whole team!!

|Dunya IVF Center|
|North Cyprus||128||4.5||I can’t recommend Dunya IVF enough! Their coordinator Daniela is an angel and went above and beyond to make sure everything happened, even though my situation was kind of a challenge. She is very caring and professional and without her I wouldn’t be pregnant today! Infinite gratitude. The clinic itself is very modern and top notch. The doctors and nurses are all great. I traveled from the US because I read good reviews and I’m glad it’s my turn to write one. Can’t wait to meet my sweet DUNYA baby in May. Good luck to all the prospective parents.
|Gynolife IVF Center|
|North Cyprus||19||4.4||First time was a success! Everything went perfect and our healthy baby girl was born on September1st! I can't thank everyone enough. From our coordinator, the staff and to Dr. Murat Onal. Everyone was 100% accommodating in every way and was only a phone call away for any questions we had during the 3 week IVF process. I highly recommend Gynolife for your Journey.

|emBIO Medical Center|
|Greece||483||4.5||After several trying months of unexpected delays and barriers, we upped our odds with [medication] and conceived our amazing daughter, Maria!! I remember that my first thought, after the nine days of shots, the trips to the Athens for ultrasounds, the anxious readings, and the agonizing two-week wait, was that it had been ridiculously easy. That was five years ago. We have a son on the way now. I can feel him squirming around in there, poking at my bladder as I write this. We suffered many losses and deep disappointments to get to this point, and I have three sharps containers full of needles to prove it.
I can't imagine what it must be like for women who breeze through conception and pregnancy, but I know I have benefited from the difficulty of my experience. I have gained a profound sense of wonderment about the entire miracle of pregnancy. I have an appreciation for the life I've brought into this world, and the one on its way, that I could never have found with any other path. I have developed a depth of sensitivity for those struggling to do what comes so easily to others that has enabled me to support them in a way I could never otherwise have done..."
Thank you Dr Paraschos !!!

|Newlife IVF Greece|
|Greece||277||4.9||I found New Life clinic through the internet, and I am glad that I made a good decision to start the process with them, knowing that choosing a clinic for IVF journey can be rather difficult. Staff is very kind, clinic is easy to find, communication was easy and always prompt. They are very patient, very thorough. Thank you for existing and making people dream come true. I am pregnant on my first try thank to the amazing people from this clinic. Extreme gratitude to Jelica Bukvic and Dr. Athanasis Pantelis that made me and my husband Alexander the happiest people. Cheers and all the best from the heart.
|IVF Pelargos Fertility Group|
|Greece||22||5.0||I have so many positive things to say about Pelargos! The results from my retrieval were much better than I expected, and I am currently pregnant from my first FET 😊. Dr. Karpouzis and his staff were super responsive to all my questions along the way, and I had complete trust in his judgment. I also felt my transfer protocol was comprehensive and gave me the best chance of success. I have already recommended him to several people! The hospital is also super clean/nice. Overall, the Pelargos team made a difficult situation as easy to get through as possible, and I'm just so grateful to them for making my pregnancy possible!
--- Emily Worthington
|Greece||68||4.7||I had literally tried everything over the span of 10 years to get pregnant in the US, to include donated eggs, without success. And, I went to what were supposed to be high end (read: priciest reproductive endocrinologists with name recognition) IVF clinics (yes, multiple).
When I first met Dr. Tsakos, I was exasperated and hopeless. I only decided to try IVF one more time after stumbling across a medical conference presentation he gave on fertility tourism where I learned that Greece is a preferred destination for IVF treatment.
I would 100% recommend Embryoclinic. If Dr. Tsakos can't help you get pregnant, then it isn't meant to be because you are not going to get better results anywhere else in the world (no exaggeration). When IVF is the next step in your journey, skip the US clinics and go to Greece.
Embryoclinic is located in Thessaloniki which is smaller than Athens, as the second largest city in Greece, and it's easy to find flights (I researched a bunch of clinics throughout the country). Maria was my international coordinator and she was patient in helping with all accommodations and logistics.
Even with the cost of travel, you will save (A LOT of money, time, and emotional expenditures). If I was able to do it all over again from the beginning (and had I known earlier about overseas options), I would have planned to go to Embryoclinic for my first attempt at IVF and eliminate the years of heartache experienced at expensive US clinics.
If you are reading this, you have been given the first step to a miracle. Baby dust to you. xoxo

|Greece||131||4.5||After receiving a recommendation for Assisting Nature from an international medical coordinator (Medistella), we had a wonderful experience with the clinic. Dr. Chouliara, Veatriki, Dr. Papanikolaou and all the other team members we worked with put lots of thought into our treatment plan, and treated us with so much kindness and honesty. Coming all the way from the USA was a challenge, but all the staff made us feel welcome and like we could rely on them. And we had much more success with achieving blastocysts than our previous cycle in the US! Plus we were able to explore the lovely city of Thessaloniki and the beautiful Halkidiki area when not at the clinic.

|Mediterranean Fertility Institute|
|Greece||39||4.6||I cannot recommend this clinic any more highly. I have just put my 2 month old baby to sleep, a baby we wouldn’t have without the support and relentless determination of everyone at the clinic. From the very first contact via email, everything was made very easy, clear and the support was like nothing we experienced in Australia, after 3 cycles and contact with two different clinics. They were available 24/7 and saw me any day of the week that I needed-which was incredible as I was alone in Chania for five months undergoing treatment-they made me feel like one of their team.
Dr Giakoumakis, Mr Daphnis, Shirley, Ilias and the team went above and beyond and were so invested in making our dreams come true. There was no waiting for treatment, and they gave us innovative treatment at very affordable prices that would not have been possible at the clinics we tried at home.
The personalised experience was also something unique, having experienced and heard from others that clinics in large cities make you feel like just a number and have you waiting all day.
I would tell anyone who needs fertility treatment to work with the Mediterranean fertility institute, who make what is a very difficult journey a little easier and are with you every step of the way.
|Reproduction Center "Parens-Ukraine"|
|Ukraine||78||3.7||I did a lot of research about IVF in Ukraine and I was looking for personalized clinic with good success rates where I would feel confidence and warmth. And I did. I highly recommend Parens Ukraine clinic for people who seek IVF with egg donation! I had multiple failed IVF in US and it was absolutely worth to come over and undergo procedure! Huge thanks for your highly professional help and personal care, now I am pregnant and wait for miracle happen next month. Rachel and Patrick New Jersey

|Ukraine||39||4.3||Three years of infertility treatment in Portuguese clinic did not bring the desired result. Accidentally, we found out about Isida from my colleague at work. After talking to my husband, we decided to undergo an examination. It was nice when at the airport we were met by a manager who spoke English really good. In the clinic work very attentive staff members, qualified doctors, who in every possible way helped us with absolutely everything. The treatment was successful. Now we are waiting for our first child))) I recommend Isida to everyone!

|Next Generation Clinic|
|Russia||45||4.0||NGC in St Petersburg was successful for my attempts using a donor egg and I am now 20+ wks pregnant. I can highly recommend Dr Diana who is excellent (she's also bilingual and speaks English). NGC have English speaking staff to help English speaking patients through their journey. Russia allows more flexible donor choices than UK or Australian clinics, you can see exactly what your donor looks like and their full medical profile. For me personally it took 5 implant cycles because I'm 40+ yrs but NGC have very good statistics in all areas. It took a little extra planning with flights and visas, but an organised person can do this easily to help save money vs the price tag of expensive UK/USA/Aus clinics! Yes I can recommend NGC.
--- Loop Kids TV
|Portugal||58||3.5||For us the best Fertility Clinic in the Universe... because they never gave up on us and together with TVI they offered us 9 treatments. It has excellent professionals who have always helped us. They fought with us until our last embryo and in the last one where no one believed, our dear and beloved Manuel arrived. The Ferticentro clinic and all its professionals are eternally grateful for making our dream of becoming parents come true. Eternally grateful for all the happiness we experience.

We are from Pakistan living in Ireland. Anatolia IVF is the best fertility treatment centre around the Globe.Here is my honest review. We chose 3 renowned IVF centers around the Globe and finally picked Anatolia IVF based on their good response and expertise and it was amazing experience and beyond our expectations. Dr. Prof. Hakkan, Dr. Prof. Mehtap, Dr. Isra, Irem (embryologist) and Faryal (Chief Nurse) are amazing people and reflect as outstanding team. I forgot the name of Urologist (sorry). They know their work and very professional in their approach. Our first transfer went well and Alhumdulillah we got success. I highly recommend this fertility hospital. Well done all Doctors. Dr. Manzoor Hussain.

|Barbados Fertility Centre|
|Barbados||65||4.8||Very long over due but if i hadn't discovered them on my fb feed, I don't think we'd be parents. I was blessed to have them get us started on our parent journey, Vivian was our nurse, Dr Skinner was our dr but the whole staff there was wonderful and answered all our concerns in a timely manner. Made it as easy as it can be to travel with covid restrictions and gave lots of tips being in a different country. We loved that we felt our ivf team was on our side and not just a number. I have an autoimmune disease, pcos and over 35 and with also healthy lifestyle changes, we got preggy 1st time. Very glad to report I gave birth to a healthy baby boy earlier this month. If our cycle didn't work I'd still go back because their care was still above than what I dealt with at local ivf practices. We love you BFC!!
|Nova Vita Clinic|
|Estonia||12||4.5||Excellent clinic with highly professional staff. Dr Viirmaa was wonderful & very kind - and so were other staff members as well. My dream of having a child came through thanks to people at this clinic. I highly recommend this place to anyone. Thank you Nova Vita!

|Slovakia||31||4.4||They made our dream come true. Great professional team, nice approach. I am grateful to them for the rest of my life and I don't know how I would compensate them for what they have done for us, thanks to them they have already made a family of three 👍

|Italy||27||4.1||Here we are, a few months after the birth of our Princess, we want to dedicate a little thought to all the wonderful Staff of the SISMER Clinic in Bologna, from the Medical Director to the last telephone operator where we have found very high professionalism, availability and courtesy. But above all humility on the part of everyone without distinction that in other health facilities is very lacking!!! Many had advised us to go abroad but we found Italian excellence in Sismer, in fact when you enter the clinic for the first time you feel a serenity, efficiency and cleanliness that makes you understand that you are in the right place!! ! But a special thanks goes to our Doctor Balicchia who followed my wife with the highest professionalism, availability and courtesy with a considerable moral support that is needed a lot in these circumstances!! I conclude by wishing you the best for your professional and private life and to continue to give this great joy to many other families!!! A big hug to all of you!!! Thank you with all my heart!!!

Best IVF Clinics of 2020
Every year in November, fertility clinics, egg banks and/or IVF agencies were awarded IVF AWARDS given by IVF Media Ltd. Being recognized with it, is beneficial not only for the IVF clinics. The awards also act as a guiding beacon for fertility patients who are willing to travel abroad in search of the best IVF treatment in the world.
In order to promote those clinics which provide their patients with the best care and comfort during the treatment, easy and transparent access to the information we grant the IVF Award. Faced with the dynamic growth of the IVF market, we wish to appreciate those clinics, agencies and gamete banks that pay particular attention to the well-being of their patients in day-to-day operations and stand out in this field’s key areas.
The best IVF clinics of 2020 were revealed during the IVF AWARD Online Gala Ceremony. The jury consisting of 16 jurors have chosen five IVF AWARD 2020 winners and three highly commended clinics. We proudly present the results as well as some comments from our Jury Panel.
Transparency and Collection of Treatment Outcomes:
- IVF AWARD 2020 winner – Equipo Juana Crespo, Spain
The project involved all staff at the clinic and was planned and implemented in realistic stages – very very thorough explanation of project roll out.
- Highly Commended – IVF Spain, Spain
This answer was more detailed and pointed to the use of a comprehensive Customer relationship management platform which seems very well thought out and planned.
Outstanding Patient Experience during the Treatment:
- IVF AWARD 2020 winner – UNICA, the Czech Republic
Find Top Egg Donation Clinics Abroad
Unica’s approach is uniquely “east meets west” – combining to create a holistic approach. Many people on an IVF journey seek out the support in psychology, nutrition and yoga but through Unica – they are providing this all in-house as a core part of their service. I also particularly liked their response to COVID-19 and taking these resources online, including online yoga videos, doctor Q&As and the Ambassador program which is in itself an excellent concept.
Best Customer Care & Support:
- IVF AWARD 2020 winner – Clinica Tambre, Spain
The clinic has evolved to manage the uncertainty of the pandemic. Their website answers all FAQs and gives a sense of security. I like the inclusion of an ethics committee and the fact that their empathy and warmth extends beyond the positive result where families return with their babies and know their staff by name and are not simply a number.
- Highly Commended – Fertty International, Spain
The clinic addressed some of the main issues patients experience when travelling abroad for treatments – fear, communication issues, high financial expense, and travel challenges.
Best IVF Clinic Website:
- IVF AWARD 2020 winner – Barbados Fertility Center, Barbados
Functionality was very good – very transparent prices were easily found, able to accept payments and good educational content. Superb!
- Highly Commended – Embryoclinic, Greece
Realistic images, sets out the clinic’s vision perfectly, provides a good patient experience.
Best Fertility Blog:
- IVF AWARD 2020 winner – UNICA, the Czech Republic
UNICA clinic has a very good internet presentation with a potential to grow to become one of the best ones in the field. Great work!

IVF PGD/PGS Programme – The clinic offers full Preimplantation Genetic Testing with 3 modalities: PGT-A (PGT for Aneuploidy), PGT-M (PGT for Monogenetic diseases), PGT-SR (PGT for Structural Rearrangement). The PGT cycles are done in the genetics laboratories, located within its Reproduction Unit which allows a perfect interaction between all the professionals involved (gynaecologists, embryologists, and geneticists). Biopsy at blastocyst stage and new techniques of massive sequencing (NGS) combined together allow higher success rates than standard rates. The clinic’s team has implemented NGS technology (Next Generation Sequencing) of massive sequencing and biopsy by laser, both in morula and blastocyst stage. Patients can also benefit from the detection of chromosomal abnormalities (type CNV: Copy Number Variation) of small size.

Customer Service & Communications – IVF Spain excels in communication with patients through their entire fertility journey. From the moment a patient is searching for a fertility solution at home, through patient meetings, until ongoing pregnancy with close follow-up even after they have completed treatment. Patients are provided extra services such as free taxi transfers to/from the airport and can benefit from partnerships the clinic has with nearby hotels. In order to alleviate the fears of going abroad for treatment, IVF Spain organizes patient meetings. A personal assistant follows the patient’s entire treatment and is in touch with them on a daily basis if necessary, in the patient’s native language. The clinic facilities match the clinic’s philosophy of putting the patient first: quiet private areas and “spa-like” settings are available to patients.
Intimacy & Care – Enhancing patient experience. The vast majority of the clinic’s patients travel from abroad. That is why the clinic’s priority is to provide them with a safe environment, not only in terms of human support but also through the latest technologies: GERI Plus for Time-Lapse, Gidget™ robotic system for sample tracking, success rates and quality certifications like ISO9001:2015 & UNE179009:2013, in-house laboratories, 24/7 helpline, and online support.
The entire clinic has been designed to conform with the principles of Feng Shui and is aimed to provide an intimate and calming environment for the patients. IVF Spain has four private waiting rooms where patients can discuss their treatment in privacy or with their coordinator. There are also seven private recovery rooms where patients can rest before and after their embryo transfer or egg retrieval. Personal coordinators are fully trained to provide emotional support for any difficulties a patient may face during the treatment.

IVF Programme – The newest addition to the clinic’s portfolio is the IVF+PGD package which has shown to improve pregnancy rates from 11.5% in women over 40 to about 50% when performing PGD. When patients decide to do PGD, the IVF price is discounted. The success rates ProcreaTec reports are always indicative of first embryo transfer (vs. cumulative) and they only report clinical pregnancy rates (gestational sac and heartbeat). The clinic is proud of the pregnancy rates which is higher than the Spanish national average:
- for women under 35 = 61.1%
- women aged 35-39 = 47.2%
- women aged 40 and above = 33.3%.

Egg Donation Programme – What makes the egg donation Programme different at Clinica Tambre? The clinic had the first in-house egg and sperm bank in Spain, there are no waiting lists, the egg donor DNA is carefully stored and grouped according to blood type and extensive selection of phenotypes. What’s worth noticing is that Clinica Tambre has one of the lowest multiple pregnancy rates of Spain, thanks to single-embryo-transfer protocol that minimizes the risk for the patient and the baby. The success rates reported by the clinic are higher than the Spanish and European average. They are the only private fertility clinic in Madrid with a recognised Healthcare Ethics Committee which ensures the ethical practice in an evidence-based manner and multi-disciplinary decisions to work towards maintaining high success rates using ethical and non-risky treatments.
Innovations – Besides having the most advanced incubation equipment, Clinica Tambre stands out with the reliable security technology used for handling biological samples. The clinic also uses specialized facial biometric recognition software, Fenomatch, to ensure the resemblance between the egg donor and the egg recipient which is legally required by the Spanish legislation. Tambre was the first IVF clinic in Madrid to use such technology. This enables the clinic to select a donor that most resembles the recipient mother. The whole matching takes just a few seconds: donors are sorted by facial resemblance and the one with the highest matching score is selected.
Fenomatch is available to all patients who decide to have treatment at Tambre. The technology has been receiving very positive feedback from both patients and clinic staff who are happy to inform the patients that the maximum effort was put to make sure their baby will look like them.

How to choose the best IVF clinic abroad?
Patients base their research for the clinic on popularity, the cost of the treatment and success rates if they are thinking about an IVF abroad. Is that an entirely correct way of making a decision? Given our experience, we really doubt that and would like to stress the importance of other factors. Patients need to remember to ask correct questions before they choose the overseas IVF clinic. See graphics below:
In Europe, there are clinics that specialize in some fields of IVF therapy such as treating patients over 40 or over 50. Other focus on patients who have already had a number of failed IVF cycles for different reasons. Some give more importance to genetic screening or other aspects of the therapy. So don’t choose the clinic based solely on costs, treatment time and success rates. It might be wrong – as you can see from the graphics below.
To find affordable and efficient fertility treatment, you can browse the most popular IVF destinations in Europe and choose the best place for IVF in the world which suits your needs and budget. The more thought and research you put into selecting and analysing the clinics’ offer the more relaxed you will feel during the entire treatment process. If your decision is well-thought-out and well-researched, you may feel calmer about your future fertility treatment journey.

I am 42 years old and my AMH is 0/03 and I married three times, I was once EP and I lost my left tube … despite the use of fertility drugs such as letrozole and clomiphene, and the right tube and the presence of one to I did not get pregnant in the dominant follicle. I got the pump, the follicles were absent. I live in Iran and I do not have much expense for treatment and time is very sensitive to you. Please inquire.
We’re sorry to hear that you have had so many complications on your fertility journey. Our International Patient Coordinators will contact you in a private message to find out more about your expectations and suggest the best clinic and treatment that could help you.
Sir, I have a very low spam count how can you assist me to burst my spam . I am 46 year old.
A healthy diet and lifestyle can improve the quality of sperm, however, there are cases where low sperm count is considerable and requires treatment. We recommend you consult a fertility doctor and have a semen analysis done. Then only the doctor would be able to suggest proper treatment, e.g. IVF with ICSI.
Thank you for the informative report. I have been searching for best IVF clinics for over 40 in Spain and Cyprus, and this has been helpful for me.
When you will publish the winners of the Ivf Award 2020?
