IVF plays an integral part in Danish everyday life. Everyone in Denmark welcomes IVF and other reproductive technologies largely due to the inclusive nature of Danish IVF law. Since the law provides access to all women, including lesbians and singles who are under 46 years old, the country is very open to creating non-traditional families. Denmark also holds a special distinction as the country with the most babies born via assisted reproductive technology (ART) and it has the world's largest sperm bank, making it a leader in the fertility industry.
Hospitals, clinics, and healthcare facilities pass the accreditation standards of the Danish Healthcare Quality Program. The national health system automatically gives health coverage to all Danish residents. This has been made possible through general state and municipal income taxes. The number of doctors and nurses in Denmark exceeds the number in other European countries. Healthcare delivery is the responsibility of each Denmark region. Because of its efficient healthcare system, life expectancy in Denmark is 81.6 years old in 2020, one year higher than the European average.
Denmark is an attractive destination for medical tourists. The castle of Kronborg in Helsingor is a medieval architectural wonder that inspired Shakespeare when he was writing Hamlet. The oldest Viking sites are the Jelling Stones which were carved back in the 10th century. Don't forget to visit the 19th-century Tivoli Garden if you are a nature lover. For families with children, visit the 100-year-old Little Mermaid statue at the harbour of Copenhagen. Pair that trip with a visit to the Museum of Hans Christian Andersen.
Denmark is generally safe to walk in even at night. Pay attention when crossing the streets though. Don't flag buses to stop. Instead, wait at the designated bus stops where they will automatically board and unload passengers. Avoid walking on bike paths and don't ride bikes without familiarising yourself with Danish bike laws. Put your phone on silent mode when riding DSB trains.
While in Denmark for your medical visit, get the Copenhagen Card to get unlimited access to public transportation. You can choose the duration of your card (24, 48, 72, or 120 hours). During this time, you can also gain free entrance to up to 80 tourist attractions and museums. A digital alternative is the City Pass for unlimited public transportation. Like the Copenhagen Card, it's also available for your choice of duration. Just remember to always bring your phone and make sure it's charged. Use it to ride harbour buses (boats), ferries, trains, city buses, and other forms of public transportation.
IVF is now a part of Danish everyday life. This widespread acceptance of reproductive technologies is due to the inclusive nature of Danish legislation, providing IVF access to all women without limitations to their marital status and sexual identity. The state and residents are in harmony with the openness and creation of non-traditional families. A study about the social and cultural history of IVF in Denmark even called it a social contract.
Danish is the official language while 86% speak English as their second language. German and Swedish are also widely spoken.
There are a ton of benefits to doing assisted reproduction treatments in Denmark. First, it has the distinction of having the most babies born via ART. Then, its legislation is highly liberal and there is a lack of stigma around assisted reproduction treatments. High-quality treatment is supervised by the Danish Health Authority. Moreover, there are short waiting times and you can discuss treatments at length with experienced patient advisors in most fertility clinics. Finally, Denmark has the world’s largest sperm and egg bank.
Couples who are covered by Danish social security are treated in public fertility clinics only if they meet the conditions. The costs for three IVF cycles are covered by the public health service. To qualify, the couple must be residents of Denmark and have no children together and the woman must be 40 years old or below. A patient must also have a medical reason that warrants an intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) or IVF treatment.
Danish legislation also covers free examinations and intrauterine insemination treatment (IUI) for patients who have a doctor's referral. Consultations and required tests before IVF treatment are also fully covered, provided that there is a doctor's referral for both male and female partners.
The law prohibits treatment for women over 46 years old. This law applies to both Danish residents and foreign patients seeking private treatment.
