Greece is a very popular place to travel to for IVF treatment because of its laws, prices and high success rates. Many couples also come to Greece because egg donation is anonymous plus the cost of IVF and Egg Donation in Greece is more reasonable than in most of other countries.
For example in the US is four times more expensive, in the UK is twice as costly, and a three times the price for similar treatment with a donated egg in Australia. Many of the clinics in Greece have high IVF success rates and the law is on the couple's side.
Usually patients need to stay in Greece around 10-15 days for their treatment, but we also have patients that stay here the full term of their pregnancy in order for us to monitor them during that time and give birth in Greece. We are able to arrange your travel and stay during the time you will be having your treatment.
