Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Fertility tourism or reproductive tourism is the practice of traveling to another country for fertility treatments. It may be regarded as a form of medical tourism. The main reasons for fertility tourism are legal regulation of the sought procedure in the home country, or lower price. In-vitro fertilization and donor insemination are major procedures involved. It has been proposed to be termed reproductive exile to emphasis the difficulties and constraints faced by infertile patients, who are "forced" to travel globally for reproductive procedures.There is generally a demand for sperm donors who have no genetic problems in their family, 20/20 eyesight, with excellent visual acuity, a college degree, and sometimes a value on a certain height, age, eye colour, hair texture, blood type and ethnicity . Anecdotal evidence suggests that the inventory of taller men who are blonde and blue eyed is most popular.
