  • I haven't heard of it, but it's not something I've researched. I would think, though, that the cost of travel and such would make it the same if not more expensive than just having it done here.

  • I agree. It would seem that the cost of everything would make it if not the same, then close to it. Plus, tursting doctors that you can barly understand? Thats not something I would want.

  • Yes, it's called medical tourism. From what I have read I think a lot of people actually travel to places like India and Chekoslavakia. When the Octomom story first broke I assumed that must have been what she did.

  • I know of people that have done that, just like there are people that come here from overseas. South Africa is another big IVF destination.
