New limits on embryo transfer in fertility treatments in Cyprus

We would like to inform you of recent changes in the law governing fertility treatments in Cyprus, effective from December 2023. These changes relate to the number of embryos permitted to be transferred in each treatment cycle.

For female patients under the age of 39:

  • A maximum of 1 embryo can be transferred per cycle unless the patient has experienced 2 failed cycles, in which case 2 embryos can be transferred in the 3rd cycle.

For female patients aged 39 and above:

  • A maximum of 2 embryos can be transferred in each cycle of infertility treatment.

The previous code of practice allowed for the transfer of up to 2 embryos for women younger than 39 years old and up to 3 embryos for women between 39 to 50 years old.
