Since we opened in 1999, Eugin has been the perfect ally for thousands of international patients who find here in Spain the ideal regulatory framework as well as an excellent healthcare setting to make their dream of becoming mothers come true. Whether it is because of their marital status, sexual orientation, their age or difficulties in accessing assisted reproduction treatments in their countries of origin, many women ask us for information to find answers to the questions they have when they want to have a baby using these techniques. From that moment on, Eugin provides the woman with support from the consultation stage until the end of the process if she so wishes, offering her guidance at all times according to her particular case.
Foreign patients come to Spain to carry out Assisted Reproduction for several reasons.
A particular marital status: In some countries, a single woman, either without a male partner or with a female partner or even an unmarried couple, cannot undergo an Assisted Reproduction Treatment. In Spain, the marital status or sexual orientation of the patient is not taken into account.
Age of the patient: In some countries, IVF with the recipient’s own eggs is not carried out on patients over 40-41 years of age and egg reception cannot be carried out on patients over 45. At EUGIN Clinic we accept patients for IVF with their own eggs up until the age of 46 where conditions allow, and egg reception up until 50 years of age. It is worth noting that in Spain there is no age limit for recipient patients, however at EUGIN Clinic our Ethics Committee have weighed up the medical advantages and disadvantages and have taken the decision to limit the age to 50.
Difficulty or restriction in carrying out the technique in the patient’s country: In some countries the reception of donated eggs is a long and complicated process, or even a prohibited process.
In Spain, human reproduction is constituted within the law 14/2006 related to Assisted Reproduction Techniques.
The basic end result of Assisted Reproduction Techniques is a medical treatment for human sterility. This technique is used when other therapeutic measures have shown inadequate or inefficient results.
Assisted Reproduction can also be used to prevent and treat genetic or hereditary illnesses. This procedure is used when there is sufficient diagnostic and therapeutic guarantee of a successful outcome which is medically recommended.
There are chances of a successful result, which do not involve a serious risk for the woman or the possible children. Women donors must be over eighteen and in good physical and mental health.
We at Eugin know that the path to motherhood is one of the most important in a woman’s life. For that reason, we always speak clearly and honestly with our patients about their options. Once we set out on the quest for the baby, we use the advantages that technology puts at our disposal to make the travel and time involved in undertaking an assisted reproduction treatment outside the country of residence as easy and quick as possible.
To do so, we reduce to a minimum the occasions when a face-to-face visit to the clinic is necessary (which will vary between one or two depending on the treatment) and the first point of contact, which includes a diagnosis, can be made by videoconference.
Eugin’s team of professionals provides patients with comprehensive support throughout the entire process, including a secure personal area on the website where patients can track their treatments individually; support in organising their trips and the required documentation as well as a multilingual team..
