Q: Transfer of embryosn from India

Hello , I recently tried to transfer frozen embryos from India to the USA ,however the clinic tokd me tha they cannot ship them because the government has banned shipping of embryos.I am not sure if this is true because I have not read about it anywhere. Can you tell me if this is true.

A: Response from Kim Bergman

Hi There. Sadly, this does seem to be the case. India was always a risk and since they tightened up their regulations I have not heard of anyone successfully being able to get their embryos out of India. I do recommend that you contact an attorney in your town and see if they can help, but I am sorry to say you many not be able to get them out.
