Fertility treatment in the UK or overseas creates complex legal and practical issues

Fertility treatment creates a wealth of legal, medical, financial, emotional and practical issues because:

  • Fertility treatment does not guarantee a much-wanted child.
  • There is no international harmonisation of fertility treatment law.
  • Fertility treatment in the UK is governed by complex legislation.
  • Fertility treatment can create unintended legal and practical outcomes concerning the procurement, storage and use of gametes (eggs and sperm) or legal status of a child.
