The guidance surrounding travelling to a ZIKA affected area, whilst attempting to achieve a pregnancy, or when you are donating eggs/sperm, has recently been updated.   At the Hull IVF Unit we are currently undertaking a risk assessment and will be updating our policy during September 2019.

If you have any questions regarding ZIKA advice and travelling to a ZIKA affected area whilst undergoing treatment/the donation process, please speak with your consultant or contact the Unit for further advice.

Once the policy has been agreed, we will update our paperwork and information accordingly.
