Fertility Tourism in Hawaii

Fertility tourism

We have seen a great influx of patient travelling from other countries to the International Fertility Institute of Hawaii for fertility treatment. Many patients are travelling to the International Fertility Institute of Hawaii for fertility treatments like In Vitro Fertilization, Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection, Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis, Donor Egg IVF, and Donor Sperm IVF.

Patients have travelled from all over the world to the International Fertility Institute of Hawaii and returned home after a successful cycle with an ongoing pregnancy. We are very honored that patients have travelled from countries like Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Japan, China, Korea, Philippines, Germany, Italy, and many others.

Patients who travel to the International Fertility Institute of Hawaii often seek treatments and technology that are not available in their country.

International fertility patients have many treatment options

Egg and Embryo Restrictions: Many countries are very restrictive of the number of eggs that may be fertilized and how many embryos can be used for implantation or cryopreservation.

Egg Donation: Egg donation is restricted or illegal in a number of Asian and European countries. Many couples then will seek help in places where the procedure is allowed such as the United States where egg donors are available. IVF with anonymous egg donation is also the main assisted reproductive technology sought by Canadians traveling to the U.S,.

Sperm Donation: In some countries, anonymous sperm donors are often difficult to obtain or illegal to use. For that reason, many patients seek treatment in the U.S. and the International Fertility Institute of Hawaii for Donor Sperm IVF cycles.

Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) and Family Balancing or Sex Selection: PGD is prohibited or restricted in many countries even when it is used to screen for genetic diseases, while the laws in the U.S. are more relaxed.
