New Law regarding the number of embryos transferred in Greece

At the end of September 2014 the national regulatory body of assisted reproduction in Greece brought out a new Law regarding the number of embryos that can be transferred according to certain parameters (FEK 2589/29-9-2014).

The Law specifically states:

  • In women under the age of 35 using their own eggs, it is permitted to transfer one or two embryos.
  • In women over 35 and under 40 years of age using their own eggs, it is permitted to transfer up to two embryos in the first and second treatment cycles. Three embryos are allowed in their third cycle and any following treatment cycles.
  • In women 40 years of age using their own eggs, it is permitted to transfer up to three embryos.
  • In women over the age of 40 using their own eggs, it is permitted to transfer up to four embryos.
  • In the case that the embryos have developed from the use of donor eggs, it is permitted only to transfer up to 2 embryos.

It is also obligatory to sign a consent stating which scenario one belongs in and how many embryos are to be transferred prior to embryo transfer.
