The British Infertility Counselling Association Winter 2019 journal includes an article by Natalie about the law around storing eggs, sperm and embryos. The basic storage period set by UK law is ten years, but since there are also options to export or to extend storage (but only in some circumstances), the rules which apply to any particular case can be difficult to untangle. With more clients seeking advice from us following confusion about storage periods at fertility clinics, and a new campaign to allow women storing eggs to store for more than ten years, Natalie was asked to write this piece for fertility counsellors to help them advise fertility patients correctly.
