The Law

According to article 123 of the Family Code of Ukraine dated January 10, 2002 No. 2947-III “Recognition of the origin of a child born by the use of assisted reproductive technologies”:

1. In the event of the birth of a child conceived using IVF methods, the mother’s husband is considered the father, with his written consent.

2. In the case of the transfer of an embryo of a married couple, conceived with the help of IVF, into the body of a woman, the parents of the child are the married couple.

3. A married couple is recognized as the parents of a child born by the wife after the transfer into her body of an embryo conceived by her husband and another woman with the help of IVF.

According to the Order of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine No. 787 dated September 09, 2013 “On approval of the procedure for the use of assisted reproductive technologies”, the use of the following technologies is allowed:

  • In vitro fertilization (IVF);
  • Donation of oocytes;
  • Cryopreservation of eggs, sperm and embryos;
  • Additional technologies during the IVF program:
    Auxiliary hatching;
    Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD).
  • Surrogate motherhood (in our clinic, this technology is used exclusively for medical reasons) of the following technologies:


Embryo transfer

For in vitro fertilization, legislation recommends transferring no more than one or two embryos. If medically approved, a different number of embryos can be transferred.


Cryopreservation of embryos is permitted. Frozen embryos can be used in the next cycles. Ukrainian legislation does not determine the period of preservation of embryos. The transportation of embryos abroad is not prohibited, but its conditions are not clearly detemined. In the case of embryo transfer, it is important to take care of the legal support of this procedure.

Embryo reduction

If the onset of a multiple pregnancy can pose a threat to the life and health of a woman, and in some other cases, the procedure for removing a certain number of embryos is allowed by law. This decision is made jointly by the doctor and the pregnant woman. A necessary condition for the reduction, which must occur before the 10th week of pregnancy, is the written consent of the patient.

Donation of oocytes and sperm


Donation of eggs and sperm in Ukraine is anonymous and occurs only for medical reasons and subject to the written consent of the patients. According to the law, donors cannot claim parental rights regarding the unborn child.

The donor does not receive information about who became the recipient of the cells and about the children born.

The requirements for oocyte donors are high. It can be a woman aged 20 to 32 years old with satisfactory somatic health, no hereditary diseases, having a healthy child, without any bad habits or negative phenotypic manifestations.


The legislation of Ukraine permits donation using IVF methods in accordance with article 123 of the Family Code of Ukraine.
