IVF treatment in related families

My father’s father and my husband mother’s father are siblings (our grand fathers are siblings) can you do ivf treatment for us (from egg donors)

Svar fra lægen

Dear G

You are correct in your anticipation, that IVF treatment in Denmark is not allowed using your own egg and sperm because you are genetically related.

The reason is, that you have a significantly increased risk of seldom heritable diseases in your family, that can affect your children.

The use of an egg- or sperm donor would remedy this risk. So this would be a possibility.

Kind regards,
