Fer­til­ity treat­ment age bar­ri­ers ‘must be eased’

The Daily Telegraph - - Coronaviru­s -

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.
