The Process of surrogacy Treatments
Surrogacy is an option for couples who have infertility problems and cannot conceive naturally. It also provides an opportunity for single parents or gay couples to have children. Surrogate treatments are an alternative to traditional drug treatment. The process is a lot quicker and cheaper than the traditional process.
The process begins with finding an appropriate surrogate who will carry the child and give birth to it for them. The surrogate would then be implanted with an embryo that was created from the sperm and egg cells of the prospective parents. The surrogate will then carry the baby for nine months before giving birth and handing it over to its parents.
Below, we have discussed a step-by-step procedure for the surrogacy process..
The Surrogate’s Role in the Process
Surrogate mothers are a vital part of the surrogacy process. They are often referred to as surrogates because they carry and give birth to the child for the intended parents. Surrogates do not have to be biologically related to the child in order for them to carry and give birth.
There are many reasons why someone might want to become a surrogate mother, but most of them are altruistic in nature. The surrogate mother’s main goal is to help others by giving them a family, which is something they cannot provide themselves.
This is a very sensitive and emotional topic. The surrogate mothers are the ones who carry the baby in their womb for 9 months and have to give it up in the end.The surrogates are not just a vessel that carries the baby. They have to be emotionally supportive and physically strong enough to go through all of the medical procedures.
They are not just carrying a baby in their womb, they are also carrying an entire family’s dreams.
Different Forms of Surrogacy
There are 2 different forms of surrogacy: gestational and traditional.
- Gestational Surrogacy: Gestational surrogacy is the process by which a woman carries and delivers a child for another family or person without genetic ties to the child. In most cases, this process involves in vitro fertilization to create an embryo that is then implanted into the surrogate.
- Traditional surrogacy: Traditional surrogacy involves the egg of the surrogate being fertilized by sperm from the intended father before it is implanted in her uterus. The surrogate then carries the baby to term. It can be expensive because it requires additional medical procedures and legal costs. Legal surrogacy can also be more complicated than gestational because it requires the surrogate to sign away her parental rights to the baby she’s carrying.
Success Rateof the Surrogacy Procedure
The success rates of surrogacy procedures vary depending on many factors, including the age of the surrogate mother and whether or not the intended parents are genetically related to her.
The success rates for gestational surrogacy and traditional surrogacy are different because they involve different types of risks and uncertainties. Gestational surrogates have higher chances of carrying a pregnancy to term than traditional surrogates do, but they also have more risk factors associated with them such as more complications during pregnancy and delivery, increased risk for miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, and other health issues.

- Paperwork – Agreements & Contract
Surrogate mothers are often asked to sign a contract with an agency before they start their journey. The contract will lay out what is expected of them, including how much they will be paid, who they can be in contact with during their pregnancy and what happens if something goes wrong.
The surrogate mother may also be asked to sign a separate agreement with the intended parents which would include information about how many embryos are being implanted, parental rights, custody and visitation rights etc.
- Stimulation of Ovary – Prep for IVF
The stimulation of the ovary is done with the help of fertility drugs. This process is also known as ovarian hyperstimulation. These fertility drugs are administered to stimulate the production of eggs in the ovary. The eggs will then be harvested through an ultrasound-guided needle aspiration procedure called transvaginal oocyte retrieval (TOVAR).
This whole process is done under close monitoring by a gynecologist and an embryologist, who are then responsible for fertilizing these eggs with sperm from a male partner or donor. This fertilization happens in a lab dish, which is also called an incubator.
- Controlling ovarian hyper stimulation with Injection
The use of injection in surrogacy has been seen as a way to control ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS). Women with OHSS have fluid retention and abdominal pain, which can be life-threatening.
The symptoms of OHSS are severe abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, shortness of breath, rapid weight gain and swelling in the hands and feet.
