A stable relationship, not a legal marriage appears to be required for fertility treatment. Some clinics are willing to work with single women. The country allows embryo freezing and embryo screening (PGD) for serious inherited diseases. A maximum of two embryos can be transferred at one time. IVF patients are only allowed to store their surplus embryos for two years, after which time they must dispose of the embryos and start with a fresh cycle if they want to pursue ART again.

Egg/Sperm Donation

Only anonymous egg and sperm donations are permitted. Payment for egg donations is not permitted, although $54EU is allowed to compensate for the inconvenience related to the donation.


Surrogacy is not permitted and contracts are explicitly unrecognized by national law.
