Spain offers an excellent fertility service as its legislation is more flexible than in most other European countries, and its success rate for in vitro fertilization and egg donation is also high.
Spain is also very popular. In the cities, twisting old streets open out to views of daring modern architecture, while hundred year old bars serving wine from the barrel rub shoulders with blaring, glaring discos. Travel is easy, accommodation abounds, the climate is mild, the people are relaxed, the beaches are long and sandy, and the food and drink are easy to come by and full of regional variety. In short, Spain is a great place for getting infertility treatments abroad.
Many patients find that choosing a fertility clinic is a daunting task. Some clinics are big, some are small, some are very famous, others have been around for years, and others are little more than a doctor’s office and a lab. If the patient searching then decides to start looking at people’s opinions on internet then they really get mixed up because no clinic has perfect reviews. It is basically a technique of producing test-tube babies in which the fertilization is conducted outside the womb and there are lots of hospitals and clinics in Spain creating families by offering this treatment.
