Marriage appears to be required for fertility treatment.

Egg/Sperm Donation

Egg sharing is done at some clinics (where one couple shares the costs of a cycle and the woman from the other couple shares some her eggs.) Some clinics report doing egg donation. Sperm donation may be permitted. Donations are anonymous.


Poland is a Catholic country and the Vatican has taken a moral stand against surrogacy. Therefore, surrogacy is prohibited although there do appear to be some surrogacies taking place ?¢‚Ǩ‚Äú in those cases the Intended Parents must adopt their child and the surrogate mother agrees she has no claims on the baby. Contracts are not enforceable should the surrogate make claims to the child even if she has no biological tie to the child.
