Surrogacy is a procedure in which another woman carries and gives birth to a baby for the intended parents.
Surrogacy is mainly preferred by the woman who has:
- Medically unfit to carry the pregnancy or go through labor
- Medical problems with the uterus
- The problem in getting pregnant even after trying multiple assisted-reproduction techniques
- Malformation of the womb
- Recurrent pregnancy loss
Host or Gestational -Surrogacy
In this procedure, either the eggs of intended mother or sperm donor can be used to conceive through IVF reproductive technique. Hence, the baby remains genetically unrelated to the surrogate mother.
Cost effective Surrogacy
There are three phases in host surrogacy procedure:
Egg donation: The egg donor undergoes a series of treatment procedures to extract a number of eggs
Fertilization: The egg is fertilized with semen in the laboratory
Transfer: The fertilized egg is transferred into the womb of the surrogate mother.
Chances of having a baby with surrogacy
Success rate may depend on many factors such as:
- Surrogate’s ability to get pregnant
- Age of the egg donor
- IVF treatment success rate
- Quality of gametes
Risks of surrogacy in India
The risks associated with surrogacy depend on the type of the surrogacy treatment. Most often, the risks associated with traditional surrogacy are similar to that of IVF. As there is a greater risk of HIV and hepatitis, donors involving in surrogacy should be screened for any transmitted diseases.
Your Infertility Specialist may recommend the donor to undergo a number of tests to ensure no disease is being transmitted so that the chances of success can be increased. Contact us at 040-4260 7310 to know the details on IVF procedure cost and surrogacy cost.
