Surrogate embryo transfer is a significant milestone in the Surrogacy process, where the dreams of Intended parents come one step closer to reality.
This procedure plays a crucial role in bringing together the carefully selected embryos and the gestational carrier, laying the foundation for the potential creation of a new life.
Let’s explore the key elements of the Surrogate embryo transfer procedure together!
What is Surrogate embryo transfer?
Surrogate embryo transfer is a medical procedure in which embryos created through in vitro fertilization (IVF) are transferred into the uterus of a Gestational Carrier (Surrogate).
The embryos, typically created using the genetic material of the Intended parents or donors, are carefully selected for transfer to maximize the chances of successful implantation and pregnancy.
Embryo transfer to Surrogate mother allows individuals or couples who are unable to carry a pregnancy themselves to have a biological connection to their child while relying on the assistance of a Gestational Carrier.
Step-by-step: Surrogate embryo transfer procedure
The process of embryo transfer requires only the best quality approach of medical personnel and a well-developed treatment plan adjusted individually to the case of Intended parents.
There the following main steps of Embryo transfer to Surrogate:
- Preparation: Prior to the transfer, both the Gestational Carrier and Intended parents may undergo medical evaluations and screenings to ensure their suitability for the procedure.
The Gestational Carrier is prepared through medications for implantation.
- Embryo Selection: The Intended parents may have already undergone in vitro fertilization (IVF) to create embryos using their own genetic material or with the help of a sperm or egg donor. The healthiest and most viable embryos are selected for transfer that increases the chances for the best health of the future child.
- Transfer Process: The Embryo transfer is typically a minimally invasive outpatient procedure. The selected embryos are loaded into a catheter, which is carefully inserted into the Gestational Carrier’s uterus. The embryos are then released into the uterine cavity.
- Post-Transfer Care: After the transfer, the Gestational Carrier may be advised to rest and avoid strenuous activities for a certain period. Progesterone supplements or medications may be prescribed to support the implantation and early pregnancy.
- Pregnancy Testing: Around 10-14 days after the transfer, a pregnancy test is conducted to determine if the procedure was successful. If the test indicates a positive result, the Gestational Carrier continues to receive Prenatal care, while the Intended parents eagerly anticipate the development and growth of their baby.
If the pregnancy test results are negative, intended parents have the option to proceed with the same surrogate (if medically permissible) or explore other surrogate options until they achieve the desired positive result.
Surrogate embryo transfer cost
The cost of Surrogate embryo transfer is usually included into the price of Surrogacy Program which сan vary depending on several factors, including the location, the Surrogacy program type or agency chosen, and the specific health issues of the intended parents.
