Most Dutch parliamentarians support a plan to increase the maximum age for IVF treatments from 43 years to 50 years. Only the small Christian parties are still objecting, Trouw reports.
The maximum age for IVF treatment in the Netherlands is currently 43 years old. But according to Minister Edith Schippers of Public Health, doctors believe that IVF is possible up to the age of 50 without taking irresponsible medical risks. Fifty is also the age in the new doctor's guideline.
