Fertility treatment age barriers ‘must be eased’


Age restrictio­ns on fertility treatments must be loosened to stop women missing out on starting families because of lockdown, charities said.

Many NHS bodies have restrictio­ns on the upper age limit for women eligible for Nhs-funded fertility care, ranging from 34 to 42 across England. Charities and patient organisati­ons said the pandemic means some women are falling outside the threshold and missing out on creating a family.
