Barcelona, a hub for assisted reproduction techniques
During the annual meeting of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (EHRE) held in Barcelona from the 1st to the 4th of July more than 12.000 experts from 130 countries discussed the latest innovations in reproductive medicine.
Reproductive medicine is taking leaps and bounds in innovation and the main points discussed at this gathering were unexplained infertility and how to preserve fertility overall. They also tackled topics like how to prevent genetic diseases, failed implantations and premature depleted ovarian reserve.
Catalonia’s success rates for assisted reproduction techniques are amongst the highest, this is due to their use of advanced technology.
Half the women who undergo an assisted reproduction treatment in Catalonia are foreign.
In Catalonia more than 17.000 assisted reproduction treatments are performed every year and more than half the women (53%) are foreign. This number grows every year. A lot of the patients are French due to their country’s laws and their proximity to Spain.
Spanish law allows assisted reproduction techniques that aren’t approved in other countries such as the shared motherhood method (ROPA) for female couples.
