According to the new Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act introduced in early March 2010, all kinds of 3rd party reproduction are forbidden in Turkey. In addition, preparation of recipients or donors, suggesting any third party treatment to the patients and undergoing such treatments are forbidden. Between October 2008 and February 2010, 377 oocyte retrievals were performed in our center. During the same time period, the no. of couples travelling abroad was 35 (8%). Reasons for travelling abroad were: egg donation 24 (68%), sperm donation 6 (17%), embryo donation 3 (8%), sex selection 1 (3%) and surrogacy 1 (3%). The number of couples travelling to our center from abroad was 22. The nationalities of these patients were Germany (9), Russia (4), Kazakhistan (3), UK (2), Canada (1), Austria (1), Sweden (1) and, Norway (1). The main advantages of Antalya are the availability of direct flights, low tx cost, and numerous options for accommodation.

    There is a mystery, present from conception, namely, how the human person, who transcends the individual elements of sperm and ovum, can nevertheless come to exist at the first instant of the sperm's interaction with the ovum, an event marked by the formation of an "embryonic skin," or wall.

    Failed fertilization after intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) can occur due to an oocyte activation defect. In these cases assisted oocyte activation (AOA) may help but efficiency is still unknown. Prior to AOA, the mouse oocyte activation test (MOAT) can be carried out by injecting human...
