Greek Laws regarding Embryo Transfer
« on: 22/09/15, 21:50 »
A number of times recently there seems to have been some confusion over what is and is not allowed under Greek law with regards to number of embryos you may have transferred. The law is the same for all clinics and is as follows:

"In women under 35 years of age using own eggs, one or two embryos can be transferred.
-In women over 35 and under 40 years of age using own eggs, up to two embryos can be transferred if it is the first or second treatment cycles. Thereafter, on subsequent treatment cycles, up to three embryos can be transferred.
-In women aged 40 years of age using own eggs, up to three embryos can be transferred.
-In women over 40 years of age using own eggs, up to four embryos can be transferred.
-In all women using donor eggs, only two embryos are allowed to be transferred."


Hopefully this information will help you prior to Embryo Transfer day in coming to a decision. With donor eggs it is very straight forward as there is only the choice of a maximum of two embryos but for own egg, it depends on your age and number of treatments.

If you need any further information, please do ask your clinic or post a question on the board.

Best of luck with your treatments  :)
