    Abstract

    IVF enables individuals experiencing infertility the opportunity to achieve conception. ICMART estimated that over 3.5 million babies have been born as a result of IVF between 1978 and 2008 (Adamson, 2009).

    In the last decade, there has been a steady rise in use of CBRS (Pennings et al., 2009). The ESHRE Task Force on Ethics and Law (Pennings et al., 2008) estimated in just 6 EU countries approximately 25,000 patients travelled to another country for IVF cycles.

    Although some individual cases of CBRS have attracted considerable media attention and there is growing professional interest, there is limited evidence on patient perceptions of CBRS (Hudson et al. 2011).

    The aim of this poster is to present an overview of patients’ motivations for, and experiences of, their cross border reproductive treatments.
