Abstract

When does a german couple benefit from cross-border reproductive care in Europe?

Cross border care is a common phenomenon in patients seeking treatment for fertility disorders in the European Union. Many of these couples originate from Germany, thus evading restrictive legislation and partially motivated by financial considerations as well as the hope for a better quality of treatment. This article presents an overview of the literature, putting it into context with the situation of the german patients and relating it to practical aspects for the critical practitioner, who is often required to support the patients, before and after seeking treatment abroad.
