Q: Can I fly with IVF needles, medication etc?
This will depend on where you’re travelling to and from, and the restrictions imposed by different airlines and governments. In the UK, you can carry these as hand luggage:
- Essential medicines (over 100ml)
- Medical equipment, if it’s essential for your journey
The key point though, is that you’ll need supporting documentation from a relevant medical professional. This will usually be a letter from your fertility doctor or medical team, but could also be a copy of your prescription.
We’re ready to help out with this at IVF Turkey, just chat to the team in your next appointment.

Q: Is the COVID-19 vaccine safe during IVF treatment?
In the UK, the Human Fertilisation & Embryology Authority (HFEA) has reported no evidence from scientists, or theoretical reason, that any of the COVID-19 vaccines can harm fertility.
The NHS and Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) has recommended COVID-19 vaccination as the safest, most effective way of protecting pregnant women and babies from coronavirus.
