A stable relationship, not a legal marriage appears to be the requirement for fertility treatment. IVM is available at some clinics. Embryo freezing and embryo screening (PGD) for inherited diseases are not permitted. Every embryo created must be implanted and no more than three can be fertilized.

Egg and sperm donation are not permitted.


Surrogacy is prohibited by law.
