Currently in Russia has about 140 fertility clinics and 621,000 doctors and a number of these are attracting foreign patients for IVF treatment. The clinics understand that good communication is very important and so employ English-speaking staff to ensure that there should be no issues with communication during treatment.
The reason of popularity is the price of treatment is lower than in the West, and of course the lack of waiting lists. However, Russian laws are a bit different as they allow both anonymous and non-anonymous donation. This means that people may have more options about the information they can find out about a donor.
The law states:
Assisted reproduction is legally available to unmarried couples and single women.
Same sex male partnerships are legally not allowed to be treated.
There is a legal age limit for IVF treatment of 50 years old. If a clinic treats women older it is at their own risk.
Sex selection is not allowed for non-medical reasons
Donation of egg and sperm is anonymous or non-anonymous. Non-anonymous does not mean that you are able to meet or know the donor personally. It refers to the amount of information you are allowed to see about the donor.
Surrogacy is permitted
There is a law restricting the number of embryos which are allowed to be transferred to two. However if a women would like three embryos transferred she would need to sign a consent.
Egg freezing is permitted
Embryo donation is permitted in Russia. Embryos that are donated from couples who have completed their family, or from fresh egg and sperm donation are both permitted. There are no strict laws on how long embryos can be stored for, but it is usually up to 25 years.
IVF clinics in Russia need two licenses to operate. The first one is for participating in general medicine activity and is granted by the local town committee. The second one is granted by the Federal District specifically for the field of assisted reproduction. Before the licenses are issued, there is an inspection. If there are several patient complaints, the clinics are also re-inspected. Russia does not apply the European Tissue and Cells Directive which regulates assisted reproduction in the European Union
IVF success rates are submitted voluntarily to the Russian Association of Human Reproduction. The European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE) who collate European IVF data believe that up to 25% of Russian IVF clinics don’t submit their results.
