Why you should know about Egg Donation

The process typically involves in vitro fertilization technology oftenly; while as unfertilized eggs may be frozen and stored for later use.

Once the egg donor is recruited, she undergoes IVF stimulation treatment, followed by the egg retrieval procedure.

Being an Egg Donor in India

In women between the ages of 33 – 35 years, the requirement for egg donors is about 10- 20% and increases as women get older, in women older than 40 years, a large majority of them require egg donors. Also, since Indian women undergo menopause approximately five years earlier than women in the west, the quality of eggs retrieved at the same age is lower in Indian women as compared to their western counterparts, and hence they require egg donations much earlier.

Being an egg donor in India

On selection of egg donors: “Most donors come from agencies but they are not run by professionals. An egg donor is selected based on her physical characteristics to match the recipient in terms of colour of skin, hair, eyes and height, etc. We also carry out investigations to check if they carry any infections or genetic disorders. All relevant medical tests besides eliciting a detailed medical history are done to evaluate their overall health.

On Risks: “Usually there are no complications with the process of retrieval yet we do follow up with the donors till about a week after the process. Very rarely, during the retrieval process, the needle may hit a blood vessel in the ovary and blood may slowly ooze and the donor may collapse suddenly even 2-3 days after the process.

There are some clinics which overdo the stimulation of the ovaries so as to retrieve as many eggs as possible and share those eggs between couples. Side-effects of such hyper-stimulation include distended ovaries, filling of fluid in the abdominal cavity which may require hospitalization and sometimes care in an ICU.”

Increase the minimum age of donors: “The age limit to utilize an egg donor above the age of 21 years are allowed to be donors according to the as per the ICMR guidelines. However this means college girls or young girls who do not fully understand the risks of the procedure, seek egg donation as an option for better earning towards a better lifestyle.

Many of these college girls cite the reason for offering egg donation to fund their cosmetic surgeries. They do not understand that egg donation, may affect their own fertility due to various reasons in the future.

Yet I feel that the minimum age of egg donors should be increased from 21 to 25 years because, these young girls would then be mature enough to make a well informed choice, so that they themselves do not have to go for IVF in the process of assisting others to have babies.”

Why do Women become Surrogates?

Surrogates in India

Surrogacy is one of the options for couples to have child while surrogates not only get compensation but they fulfil their own dreams for carrying the child to term. No one gets into the surrogate parenting business only for the money purposes. For one thing, surrogacy agencies in India won’t allow it. According to Seed Art, Delhi-based surrogacy agency, surrogacy is increasingly common for people who cannot have children on their own. That’s why surrogate mother plays an important role for intended parents to have children, genetically related to them. “I am very happy that I become a successful surrogate for a foreign couple with their sperm and eggs. I already have children and am proud another family was created because of me,” says a surrogate from rural India who was also associated with Seed ART.

No genetic relationship with Surrogate
Women who decide to become surrogates experience love being pregnant and have genuine interests to help a couple have a child. Surrogates readily come to help through agencies and using Assisted Reproductive Technology to create a family for childless couples. Many people have myths surrounding surrogacy services in India. However, in gestational surrogacy, which is more common, where the surrogate uses the intended mother’s eggs, or donor eggs, and the intended father’s sperm. With gestational surrogacy, an egg is fertilized and transferred to the surrogate mother’s uterus using IVF. In this case, the surrogate mother has no genetic link, and both intended parents can be named on the birth certificate.

Statistics on Surrogacy in India
While there are few statistics on the surrogacy industry here, India has become a hub for medical tourism because of the availability of advanced technology, the large number of medical professionals and the relatively cheap costs. A latest research estimates that around 1,000 surrogacy births occur every year in India, but there is no official record-keeping for surrogacy and the involvement of surrogates in the process.

Genetic Parents get Baby Birth Certificate
The Indian Council of Medical Research, a government body, introduced guidelines for accreditation, supervision and regulation of surrogacy and assisted-reproduction clinics in 2005. Intended Parents are the legal parents, for a baby born to a surrogate with all the rights and responsibilities. The name of the surrogate mother is not mentioned on the baby’s birth certificate. ICMR guidelines are clear about this. The birth certificate will only carry the name of the genetic parents or of the single genetic father. In most cases, the clients’ sperm and egg are implanted in the surrogate’s womb, with DNA tests done after the birth to prove the genetic links to the couple and ease the issuing of a foreign passport.

Surrogates in India only become a facilitator between agency and Intended Parents. Their role is limited to achieve pregnancy with using ART, everything else is the responsibility of agencies.

8 Things you should know about Surrogacy Program

Surrogacy opens up new horizons, new doors, and new possibilities for childless couples who have had not ability to conceive naturally due to infertility or some other medical reasons. Surrogacy program can be complex in some circumstances if you are not aware of the basics regarding surrogacy.

Surrogacy Program in India

Here are 10 things that you should consider before you decide to opt for surrogacy.

  1. Medical Requirements: When you are declared infertile or you doctor tell you candidly that you cannot have children on their own due to some defined medical reasons; surrogacy becomes a good option to build your family. Your surrogate should also qualify conditions before you take her into confidence in your surrogacy program.
  2. Psychological Issues: Consult a counsellor to determine how surrogacy can benefit you on the road to parenthood. The counsellor will also make you mentally prepared to let someone else carry your child for you. You will be then ready to face all the challenges and go ahead to take the surrogacy journey positively.
  3. Psychological counselling of the surrogate mother: Psychological counselling of the surrogate mother is as important as yours. She should already have at least one child before going to carry someone else’s baby. You can also know more about the eligibility requirement of a surrogate and by this you will have a peace of mind. You can know some of the details about your surrogate during the matching process.
  4. Be informed about legal issues around surrogacy: You should know that all the countries do not have same laws on surrogacy. And if there is any confusion please get the information from a surrogacy agency or a fertility clinic.
  5. All Questions Should be Cleared: Both the intended parents and the surrogate mother should give the details of entire medical history including genetic illnesses, hospitalizations, health status, prior marriages, marital status, prior children, prior pregnancy history, bankruptcies and legal judgements, infertility history, etc.
  6. Ongoing Psychological counselling: This is important step after you sign the surrogacy arrangement. Intended Parents and surrogate mother undergo psychological counselling so that the journey goes in a smooth way. By this, surrogate mother becomes cautious about the child she is carrying for intended parents.
  7. Partner’s connection with the child: In gestational surrogacy arrangement, the resulting child born to a surrogate mother will be genetically related to the intended parents, but not the surrogate. Either of the partners can provide an egg donor or sperm and through in vitro fertilization, the embryo is implanted into the surrogate’s uterus.
  8. Choose the right agency: Choosing the right agency will make your path easier. The agencies play an important role to facilitate the process between the intended parents, fertility clinic and the surrogate mother.
