Surrogacy Process

IVF surrogacy is the process of fertilizing eggs in a culture dish. In the culture dish the egg is introduced to the male partner or donor’s sperm and fertilization occurs. During the month of a fertile woman’s menstrual cycle hormones trigger a tiny sack within the ovary that grows and releases an egg into the fallopian tube to await the arrival of fertile sperm.
The desire to produce offspring is a natural instinct but there may be many reasons why natural conception does not occur.

It begins with the women having IVF treatment being given a combination of special reproductive hormones to induce the ovary to produce several mature fertile egg. Approximately 36 hours later, with the guidance of ultrasound and with the patient under light sedation fluid containing mature eggs is collected from ovary using a needle.

Before the insemination procedure the sperm sample which is provided either by the male partner or a third party donor is checked for quality, quantity and safety in a laboratory before being filtered for grading and washing in preparation for the procedure .

The eggs and sperm are placed in an incubator set at 37°C for 24 hours to allow for fertilization to occur.
Now, only one sperm will successfully penetrate each egg and achieve fertilization. The fertilized cells then divide and multiply over a period of 2-3 days into what are now known as embryos.

A healthy embryo is then transferred to the uterus through a fine flexible tube where the aim is for it to implant in uterine lining and achieve pregnancy.

This method is assisted reproduction along with others offers. Couples experiencing difficulties in achieving conception on pregnancy a chance at producing healthy babies.

As female fertility decreases dramatically after the age of 35, it is recommended that couples experiencing infertility seek medical advice as soon as possible.
