Ny lag för assisterad befruktning - vad innebär den i praktiken!

Pride House, Thu 1 Aug 1:00 PM–1:45 PM

Since the 1st of January this year, Sweden has a new, modernized legislation regarding assisted reproduction. What has happened since then and how far have we come? Long waiting times for assisted reproduction are still reported, but is that the correct picture of the situation? We think not! The new law means that it is now allowed to perform assisted reproduction using only donated eggs and sperm, meaning that none of the parents need to be gentically linked to to the child. Earlier at least one of the parents had to be genetically linked to to the child. Men who give birth to children after gender transitioning must be seen as the father of the child and a woman who contributes with sperm should be seen as a mother. It is also permitted to perform fertilization outside the body (eg IVF) with donated eggs and sperm at clinics other than the university hospitals. The information regarding your rights and where you can turn to, can be difficult to navigate. Camilla Stenfelt, IVF doctor and head of operations at Livio Gärdet, the Nordic region's first HBTQ-certified IVF clinic, is an expert in the field. With this lecture we want to straighten out the question marks about the new legislation and be a guide in the jungle of assisted reproduction.
