Featured Infertility (IVF) Clinics
Crete Fertility Centre was established 15 years ago and it is now one of the most modern private IVF clinics in Greece. Crete is the largest Greek island and a popular holiday destination. Its tranquility allows patients to cope better with the anxiety that often accompanies the whole process.

He is now a member of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (E.S.H.R.E), the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (A.S.R.M) and the European Society of Gynaecological Endoscopy (E.S.G.E.).

FERTILITY LEGISLATION IN GREECE:
The Greek legal framework for assisted reproduction services is one of the most progressive in the world. This means that Greece and the Crete Fertility Centre are an ideal destination for couples seeking treatments not available in their own country.
Recent Greek legislation assists couples to to conceive using egg or sperm donation up until the age of 50 for women and without age limit for men. This is in contrast to many other European countries. In addition, there is favorable legislation for couples considering host surrogacy as a treatment option.
FERTILITY LEGISLATION IN EU COUNTRIES:
Fertility regulations vary from country to country in the EU.
In the UK, legislation permits single women and same-sex couples parenthood and access to ART technology in both public and private sectors. This has led to an increase in demand for these services.
Meanwhile, Italy legislated against single and gay parenthood in 2004 and is also very restrictive regarding un-married couples. A comprehensive series of medical examinations that prove the couple is infertile are often required. In addition, embryo freezing, surrogacy, sperm donation and egg donation are forbidden by law.
FERTILITY LEGISLATION IN NORTH AMERICA:
In the United States of America, medical insurance companies and state law demand that couples follow a lengthy bureaucratic process before an agreement to undertake treatment can be reached. Individual State laws also differ. For example, in California, state law does not require insurance companies to include fertility treatments in their contracts. In Connecticut, however, women over 40 are not covered by insurance companies.
Our 15 years of experience has shown that many couples who are motivated by their strong wish to have a baby are hindered by restrictive legislation in their own country. As a result of this, they seek treatment in Third World countries thus exposing themselves to avoidable risks that are consequences of inconsistency and clarity in standards of health care and hygiene. Lack of a robust and transparent ART legal framework has been known to complicate the experience many couples have had abroad in unfamiliar cultures and societies.
The percentage of couples troubled by infertility is high and unfortunately rising. Almost 1 out of 5 couples are experiencing infertility due to various reasons. In Europe, 40% of infertility is attributed to the male partner, 40% to the female partner and 20% to both.
