There are various reasons why people travel abroad for treatment. One of the most popular treatments for which patients travel abroad is In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). Several factors play a crucial role in patients’ decision to travel abroad for treatment of infertility:
-Low cost treatment options: At North Cyprus IVF Clinic, we offer a variety of fertility treatments at a cost which is fraction of the costs offered in the UK or the US. However, this does not come with a sacrifice of quality. At North Cyprus IVF, we are able to keep our costs much lower compared to our US and UK competitors as a result of lower licence fees, lower general wage rate, less bureaucratic requirements, considerably lower cost of donor compensation, and the use of advanced technology to keep our overall costs down.
-Flexibility of IVF laws which allow treatment for older women as well as availabilty of many treatment options which are not locally available. At North Cyprus IVF Centre, while we have a “recommended” age limit for treatments, it is at the initiative of our IVF specialists to offer treatment to women above the age of 50 in consideration with the patient’s overall health and fitness for pregnancy. Also, at North Cyprus IVF Centre, our favorable laws allow us to adopt treatments and research practices that may not be permitted due to bureaucracy in countries where laws are very rigid.
-Long waiting lines at local clinics for receiving treatment under the NHS or at private clinics. This is especially true when patients are hoping to recieve treatment with donor eggs. Also, when it comes to using egg donors, our award-winning clinic has very strict criteria, allowing us to achieve very high levels of success.
-Practice makes perfect! Our clinic was established by Dr. Savas Ozyigit, an IVF pioneer, in 1998. Our clinic has treated over 10,000 patients within the 17 years of its existence.
This is not a complete list of advantages a couple will benefit from when receiving IVF treatment at North Cyprus IVF Centre. There are numerous advantages that are treatment-specific, which can be listed under a specific treatment. For various treatment options at our clinic in Cyprus, please visit our “Treatments” page.
