I am a single woman, can I have fertility treatment?

Yes. There has been an increase in the number of single women seeking IVF treatment along with lesbian couples.

It is seen as discriminatory to refuse treatment to single women because they don’t have a male partner. However, this is seen as controversial by campaigners for the traditional family set up who see this as undermining the definition of a nuclear family.

There is also the problem of funding as some PCT’s are hard pressed to fund couples never mind single people.

More information about this can be found on the HFEA website.
