Research indicates that a stable (not necessarily married) relationship is required to receive fertility treatments. Treatments are cheaper than in the US – up to 1/3 the cost. Clinics offer artificial insemination, in vitro fertilization with sex selection and tests for various genetic characteristics before fertilization. PGD is offered but only in few private clinics. The regulation of PGD has been subject to ample parliamentary debate, and several bills have been introduced. Most of the draft bills call for restricting use of the procedure to serious conditions and for prohibiting PGD sex selection for non-medical purposes. As of now no laws have been enacted.
