  • Health Diagnosis

Before starting the procedure, it is really important to have a full-body check-up of all individuals contributing to embryo formation.

  1. Health Screening for Intended Mother: If the intended mother is providing the egg for the embryo, a blood test, HIV test, Hepatitis test, infectious disease test, and egg quality test is highly recommended for her.
  2. Health Screening of Intended Father: If the intended father is providing the egg for the embryo, the semen analysis along with the blood test and HIV test is done.
  3. Health Screening of Surrogate Mother: Surrogate mother has to carry the child for nine months; thus, it is a must check whether she can bear a child or not. For this, Hysteroscopy is performed, where a thin scope is inserted via the cervix to inspect the shape and size of her uterus. HIV test and blood test are other comment tests to screen her health.

 

  • IVF Process

IVF is the core of the surrogacy process. The eggs and sperms are retrieved either from the intended parents or the donors. The egg is fertilized in the lab using the sperm and creates an embryo. In a natural pregnancy, the embryo stays in the fallopian tube for about 5 days before implanting. Similarly, in this process embryo is kept in the incubator to become an adult about 4-5 days before transfer.

 

  • Stimulation and Embryo Transfer Preparation

The success of the entire process depends on the successful embryo transfer in the womb of the surrogate. Since this step is crucial, a trial transfer is done before the actual embryo transfer cycle. After the trial, the next step is to make the surrogate body ready for embryo transfer.

If the process eggs are provided by the intended mother, the menstrual cycle of the intended mother (egg donor) and the surrogate must be in synchronization. To achieve this, birth control pills or Lupron injection is given to the surrogate to control the hormones. The stimulating drugs are given to the intended mother to motivate her ovaries to produce more eggs.

 

  • Actual Embryo Transfer

In this process, doctors stop giving birth control pills or Lupron to the surrogate. A dose of progesterone is given to her to maintain uterus conditions and sustain a stable pregnancy. After about 5 days, the embryo is transferred by inserting a syringe via the cervix into the uterus. Doctors make sure of the exact placement of the embryo through an abdominal ultrasound.
