Couples who are undergoing fertility treatment in some clinics are being “financially exploited” and having additional investigations that are not necessary, the Oireachtas health committee was told yesterday.
Dr John Waterstone of the Irish Fertility Society said the proposed Government legislation on assisted reproduction should outlaw this.
He said people who are trying to have a baby can end up spending thousands of euro more on these procedures, which will not improve their chances of success.
He was appearing with other fertility experts before the committee to discuss the proposed legislation.
