Latest news

WE are no longer in Bangkok but you can still contact me if you are in need of information – things seem to be more difficult with regards to single women finding fertility treatment these days. Similarly, if you are a recent success story, I’d love to hear from you, so that my own information is up to date and accurate.

I have recently realised that my own fertilised and frozen embryos may now no longer be available to me, if no fertility treatment is allowed to single women (unfortunately our civil partnership is still not recognised in any way in Thailand).

I will be doing some finding out and will update here.

The reason things have tightened right up is related to the events surrounding twins born to a Thai surrogate last year. Gammy’s Autralian parents left him with the Thai surrogate and took his twin. They rejected him becuase he was born with Downs syndrome. What a shame that this has resulted in a blanket ban on help for loving individuals and couples wanting fertility treatment.

In the meantime, you can find what we are doing now in Prague.

    My partner and I are currently living in Phuket and travel to Bangkok often. Finding information on IUI is really fuzzy and outdated. Im hoping you might have some current news and possible clinics to look into?

    1. Hi Sam, unfortunately I don’t know that I can. I no longer live in Thailand so lack contact, and furthermore, shortly after we moved away, the laws changed in the wrong direction. For example, now we are unable to access or use our stored embryos, because I am not married to a man. You may need to think about carrying the process out abroad (probably in Europe?) and coming back. A word of advice if you do that – IUI can take many attempts and IVF less, so travelling to and from EU for IUI could become costly. I’m really sorry I can’t offer more positive news. Good luck with it all. Xx
