Do you think Spain is a good IVF destination for you?

When choosing the best country abroad to undergo your fertility treatment, you always have to analyse all its pros and cons. It is true that in case of Spain, the former significantly outweigh the latter. Let’s face it: being able to combine one’s own fertility treatment with holidays in one of the world’s most desired destinations sounds quite interesting, doesn’t it?

Spain seems like a perfect combination for fertility patients: it offers the latest advances and techniques in IVF together with liberal laws concerning Assisted Reproduction Technology.

Liberal legislation allows for a wide range of fertility treatment procedures, regardless of patients’ marital status and sexual orientation. Spanish IVF clinics are famous for their excellent staff, results and high standards of care. They are mostly located in Madrid, Barcelona, Alicante, Valencia, Malaga and Bilbao . All of these advantages naturally place Spain among the most expensive European destinations. However, prices of IVF can significantly vary depending on your chosen place of treatment.
