Application of Attendant Reproductive Processes in Ukraine

Order of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine “Approval of Order of Application of Attendant Reproductive Processes” No. 787, dated September 09, 2013, provides for the list and procedure of attendant reproductive processes applied to infertility treatment cases.

The attendant reproductive process (ARP) should be understood as the methods of infertility treatment, which involve in-vitro manipulations with reproductive cells, different phases of their preparation, processes of fertilization and cultivation of embryos till the moment of their transfer into a uterine cavity.

In vitro is a manipulation method involving fertilization of male and female genetic matter with the use of special laboratory vessels or under conditions of a controllable medium outside living organisms.

ARP implies the performance of the following operations:
  • IVF
  • ICSI
  • Intrauterine insemination
  • Donorship of oocytes
  • Donorship of sperm
  • Surrogacy services
  • PGD
  • Cryopreservation of sperm, oocytes, embryos or biological matter collected from a testicle, its epididymis, or ovarian tissue
  • Reduction of embryos
A particular program or a set of programs to be applied to each individual patient can be chosen for infertility treatment purposes by the doctor-in-charge only (i.e. reproductologist), basing on relevant medical examination and investigation results.

Any medical ARP-related assistance should be provided under conditions of absolute confidentiality.
