    Surrogacy procedure

    WHI Editor's Note: For the most updated discussion on this topic, please go to https://www.womens-health.com/boards...mother-discuss


    Hi everybody. I am Lana. I am fighting with infertility for a long time. After a long thinking I decided to try with surrogacy. I want to know all about it. My family is divided. Some of them are with me 100% and the others are not so sure that I made a good decision. I am sure that this is a good decision but I want to know all about the procedure before I try.

    Well, I take it a lot has been already said. Surrogacy is a very complex procedure if I may put in words like this.
    I myself is an IP. And in order to start the journey, I was basically forced abroad. This is not that scary but it is shocking for someone who does not really know much about surrogacy world as a whole.
    However, I must state that it becomes better once you start comprehending what is going on. Haha.
    We have signed with a Ukrainian agency World center of baby. I am mentioning it just in case there is anyone with a similar experience. And I'd personally totally recommend it for someone who is not rich or wants to save their money to be spent on their baby.

    Hi, the decision that you took may have taken you through many emotional and family pressure. But it's glad to know that going through all has made you take a strong decision. Surrogacy is the best option for all those couples who are unable to conceive. There are two types of surrogacy option. One is traditional and the other is Gestational. In Traditional Surrogacy, the surrogate uses her own egg and the intended father’s sperm to create the embryo. Whereas in Gestational Surrogacy, the surrogate carries a child conceived from the genetic material of both intended parents.

    Hi anna90. If nothing works for you, you should go to surrogate motherhood. Basically, surrogate motherhood is the place where a surrogate mother carries a child for you with the help of your husband's sperm. This is something very common, I had a child with the help of surrogate motherhood, and this was the best. It's just a little expensive, but if you make some savings, you can easily overcome it. Nowadays this is a very common technique, everyone makes his dream with a surrogate. First, you will sign an agreement, and then they will find the best surrogate mother in accordance with your agreed details. Then she will sign an agreement that prevents her from sue or sue people against you in the future for the child. Then the child will be biologically and legally yours. If you are going to a surrogate motherhood, then you should just pack your bags and go to Ukraine. Ukrainian clinics have the highest success rate of this treatment. And only because of their good reputation, I went there for my surrogate motherhood and trusted me with honor! I was not disappointed. This was the best decision in my life. I know that IVF is also an option. But surrogate motherhood is better. It's more expensive, but it's worth it.
    It's easier said than done. Surrogate motherhood should be a well-planned and organized process. You have to do this through an agency. This will reduce the headache from searching and surrogate surrogates. Many good reviews about Ukrainian clinics. I read them on different sites. Especially many people write about the clinic of reproductive medicine "BioTexCom"
    Good luck!

    Hi Lana. I think you are a very strong woman to make a decision like that. I understand that sometimes families are not very supportive of these decisions, but in the end, it's all about what you think is right for you and your family. As far as the surrogacy procedure is concerned, there are two types of processes— traditional surrogacy and gestational surrogacy. You can choose whichever is best for you and also consult a doctor before making up your mind on the same. Good luck!

    Well lana, people give you mixed reviews according to their mentality. But decide what you think is actually best for you. I have chosen surrogacy for mars.yself after TTC for nearly 9 years. They were a hell of the years. Constant grief and loneliness led me to depression. But my husband pulled me out of it. Though I have to be a part of counseling group for a year. Fat forward.. someone recommended us surrogacy. The gestational one. Since I have a low ovarian reserve and low AMH.For about 6 months we have researched and visited the clinic. Finally, we came to a place where all our questions have been answered. We are done with the initial consultation and legal arrangements. What amazed me is that if you are not the perfect candidate for surrogacy then they would advise you the treatment according to your condition. There is no compulsion. I am waiting to get matched with our perfect surrogate. Then the stage of egg retrieval, then ET, then the TWW.. Then with 9months of pregnancy comes to the of the surrogacy journey. I am looking forward to all the stages and experience all feelings during this time. Moreover, you are thoroughly examined and given an honest diagnosis. Also, legal arrangements will be disclosed in order to avoid any confusion later in the process. Good luck with your process.

    Hi Lana!Hope you are doing well.Good to know that you are not losing hope.It is a positive thing that you are trying for surrogacy.Actually, surrogacy is an agreement between a surrogate mother and intended parents.A surrogate mother is a woman that carries a pregnancy for others.If you can find a surrogate from your own family than it can save cost.Surrogacy provides a chance to infertile couples to complete their families.During surrogacy, an egg and sperm are combined as a part of in vitro fertilization. Once embryos are ready they will be transferred.It is a safe way of getting a baby. Do not worry about anything.Best of luck.God bless you.Take care

    My dear Lana! This is your decision and i really appreciate it. What people say and what they think this should not be your priority. What you and your husband decide is important. I want to tell you surrogacy is the best procedure nowadays. There different types of surrogacy all depends on the infertility issue you have. Firstly it is important you find the best clinic for the treatment and discuss all your needs and queries you have. If you have some serious issues of infertility, they will suggest you an option of surrogate mother. Anyways ive heard about good clinics in Europe so start surfing. Best of luck

    To all the women who suffer infertility.surrogacy is the ray of hope for all of them If you also want to make this selection you might better go for this, But knowingly that laws of surrogacy vary from country to country or state to state.If there are restrictions regarding surrogacy.than you might travel where you would find it legal and appropriate. I have heard about two sorts of surrogacy treatments one is of traditional surrogacy and the other one is gestational surrogacy.In US gestational surrogacy is less legally complex.You could use surrogates if there are certain medical complications because of which you are not able to carry the baby.Recently the city of Kiev has federal legislation that supports surrogacy contracts.either embryo donation or egg donation.and there are no restrictions for people who wish to travel for surrogacy.though it is an expensive treatment. you must spend this on such clinics or doctors which would worth

    Hey there. I hope you are in best of your health right now. I can understand the amount of pain you are going through. This is a tough time but we all are here for you. infertility is something that is not in your hands. Medical science though has found many cures there are still chances you may not conceive. Your plan to go for surrogacy is absolutely right and you should stick by it. There will be hurdles. Nothing comes easily. The family, which is not supporting you right now will come bearing gifts once you will get your baby. This is very common that people are anxious about these procedures and think they are risky. The right guidence however can make it very easy for you.Look up for clinics that are reliable and make sure the staff is friendly to guide you with all the things. My sister went for surrogacy and the clinic that she opted had a very supportive staff. They were very friendly and helped her with all the procedures. I hope all this was very helpful for you and you get the desired results. Wish you all the very luck. Remember me in your prayers.

    hey hey!! hope you are doing well.First congratulations on your big decision.I hope that the rest of your family also comes around soon.Well, surrogacy is a way of having a child from a surrogate mother.The eggs either donor or your own are taken and fertilized with the sperm of your partner and put into the womb of the surrogate mother.The surrogate mother has no right to the child after it is born.Now you must have a contract for that.Look for the best clinic out there and chose wisely.Choose the one where they offer unlimited trials package.that is the best one

    Hey there. I hope that you're doing good. I totally understand your problem here. Infertility is really the worst thing ever. The feeling of not becoming a mother ever is really a heart-wrenching thing. Infertility breaks a person both emotionally and physically. Everyone desires to have a family. It's the ultimate goal of every couple. I totally agree with your decision now. Everyone deserves to be happy. After suffering from everything, now you should definitely go for surrogacy. I think that you made a good decision. Actually, in some countries, it is thought to be unethical. Due to religious issues, some people consider it immoral and they spend all their lives longing for Children and facing infertility. It's a medical procedure, an opportunity, so every woman suffering from infertility should definitely go for it. It's the basic right of every person to be happy after all. Secondly, You're mentioning that you want to know about the surrogacy programs. Well, I went to Ukraine with a team for a survey. We were basically given the task to point out the best clinic and to study every procedure that includes documentation and information about the surrogates. So the clinic we visited at the third day of the survey was probably the best. We then observed different women going through the process, surrogates and their success. Well, the clinic provides safe procedures. Moreover, it doesn't want you to find a surrogate for your procedure. It serves a really great job in this regard. I've seen women having many complexes and nervousness before they go for surrogacy. They think that they would have differences with the child. But it's not right. I've seen women having successful procedures. And now they're living happily. So I think if you want to opt for surrogacy, you must visit Ukraine for the purpose. I wish you the best of luck. Take care!

    Hi Lana! I've seen an exact situation like yours. Well, I am also just another infertile person like you. I had this friend she was having endometriosis and she was under treatment with me. Our OBs was same and she was suggested for surrogacy later. Her family didn't want her to have a child that way. But later she went to Ukraine with her husband on her insist...It worked for them. They had the baby; her husband's sperm was fine. Later everyone accepted their decision and applauded them for it! I think you should really go for it. Your decision is right! Anyway! I still wish you luck! xx
