Surrogacy vs Adoption: Why is surrogacy process a better option?

Why is surrogacy process a better option then adoption.jpg

Couples who are unable to have a baby due to fertility issues can still become parents. Usually couples resort to adoption to have their baby. But with the introduction of assisted reproduction technologies, one has a broader base of solution to choose from, especially surrogacy. Both adoption and surrogacy have their own pros and cons, considering their societal issues. However, couples can still choose surrogacy to have their own biological child. But sometimes it can be a tough choice to decide between surrogacy and adoption. Here are a few advantages of surrogacy over adoption.

Surrogacy is possible in two ways: Gestational Surrogacy or Traditional Surrogacy

Gestational Surrogacy:

The surrogacy process in India is a complex process and involves two parties – intended parents and the surrogate (mother). The surrogate mother carries the baby to full term created from the human gametes – sperm and egg of the prospective parents. In case of surrogacy with egg donor, the eggs of the egg donor are used to create an embryo. The gestational surrogate has no genetic relations with the baby.

Traditional Surrogacy:

The surrogate mother receives artificial insemination or IVF, which involves the sperm of the male parent or sperm donor. The eggs of the surrogate mother are used instead of the intended female parent or the egg donor. Therefore, it means, the surrogate shares her genes with the baby. This is a traditional method of surrogacy.

Seed ART Bank, a surrogacy agency in India, assures that you have a successful parenthood experience. We feel proud to help couples to offer the healthiest and fittest surrogates so that their baby is healthy and does not have any genetic diseases.

Why Adoption is a less preferred option than Surrogacy?

A few states do not follow adoption process due to ethical and legal complexities. In a few cases, couples can have their own biological child through surrogacy, which is not possible in the case of adoption. Adoption process involves a lot of legal paperwork which may go overboard, at times, however surrogacy process is smoother on the legal front. When compared to surrogacy process, adoption lacks personal touch. When we talk about adopting a child, unlike surrogacy, the baby may not share emotional and mental traits of the intended parents. While in surrogacy, the baby is formed of the parents genes, so the baby possesses the traits of its parents.

Seed ART Bank surrogacy program has a wide-variety of surrogates to offer to the intended parents looking for a surrogate. A surrogate mother in India prior to becoming a surrogate mother at Seed ART Bank is thoroughly screened medically and psychologically to determine her mental, emotional and psychological health. If the surrogate is fit and healthy, she will be able to carry a baby to full term and deliver a fit baby.

Can I Approach to Egg Donation Process if I have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome?

egg donation process while pcos

Egg donation is an effective treatment where the eggs are extracted from an anonymous egg donor. Once the eggs are extracted, the eggs are fertilized in the laboratory for 2-3 days. The fertilized eggs are cultured with the male sperm to develop an embryo. The resulting embryo is transferred into the surrogate’s uterus or the intended mother’s uterus. But if you are suffering from PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome), it does not necessarily mean that you will require donor eggs while IVF treatment in progress.

What to keep in mind before undergoing Egg Donation?

Using eggs of a donor can be a complex process as it affects both the parties – your family and the resulting child. A series of screenings are performed for both – egg donor and the prospective parents before beginning the treatment. According to the American Society of Reproductive Medicine, a specially-trained reproductive psychologist does a psychological evaluation of the egg donor.

Only PCOS is not an indication to choose egg donation. It can be also used if the ovaries are absent or damaged, or you have low ovarian reserves or a severe genetic condition you have a genetic condition or you are medically unfit to undergo ovarian stimulation.

In most cases, the first step to treat a woman with anovulation caused due to PCOS is the intake of clomid orally. Usually, clomid is given with metformin (treats insulin resistance and induces ovulation). Other options can intrauterine insemination or in vitro fertilization.

Selecting an Egg Donor

If your doctor suggests to for donor eggs, then choosing the right egg donor is an essential part of the process. There is a couple of egg donor egg agencies located worldwide. One of them is Seed ART Bank, a leading egg donor agency in India, with a comprehensive egg donor database comprising of healthy donor that matches your needs and helps you have a healthy baby.

Egg Donation is a process where a woman helps a couple move a step closer to their dream of parenthood. This process involves a number of medical screenings after which the woman can donate her eggs to help the desired couple raise their family. This is an effective third-party assisted reproduction technique which involves egg fertilization with the help of in vitro fertilization (IVF). IVF treatment in India is the best option for those experiencing fertility issues.

Medical Screening of the Donor : Once the suitable egg donor candidate is selected, a complete medical screening involving hormonal screening and ultrasound is done at the 2nd or 4th day of the menstrual cycle of the egg donor. These types of screenings help in determining the ability of the egg donor to produce healthy eggs for maximum pregnancy chances and to examine whether the egg donor is physically and mentally fit.

3. Post-screening evaluation : On this day, your medical screening test will be evaluated by the fertility specialist. Once this is done, your role as an egg donor will be checked upon in context of your reproduction potential and fertility potential.

Once the eggs are almost developed, an injection of HCG (for release of eggs) is given to the egg donor. This process takes around 3 weeks for completion.

5. Extraction of eggs : After the HCG injection, it takes around 36 hours for the eggs to be prepared for retrieval. When the eggs are completely developed, the egg retrieval process takes place which lasts for 20 minutes only.

32-year old Nicole Lapin shares her experience on Egg Freezing Process

Nicole Lapin shares her Egg Freezing story

Financial guru, popular television personality and author Nicole Lapin says, “be in the driver’s seat” of her life when she choose egg freezing.

She adds, “When I was in my 20s, I was career, career, career.”

Lapin now 32 says, “I realized that I was in the backseat of my own life and I wanted to take control and I wanted to be in the driver’s seat of my own life.”

Lapin not only froze her eggs but she documented her personal emotional journey for Redbook magazine on Egg Freezing. Lapin is a financial columnist for Redbook.

She says, “Today is the day I took charge of my future” in her diary.”

She felt her biological clock ticking at the age of 30 and shared a long-term relationship with a person with whom she had no plans of having a family.

She adds, “I always wanted to have a family. I wanted to be married by my late 20s. I wanted to have kids by my early 30s,” Lapin said. “You know, it didn’t happen for me that way.”

Lapin tells that the egg freezing process charged her around $14,000. She further says, “I had the craziest cravings,”, who experienced hormonal changes and bloating during the process of getting daily shots for 3 weeks.

She says, “Her egg retrieval left her with lesser eggs than she expected so she plans to have a second freezing. She does not plan to use the eggs right away.”

She tells, “I don’t want to use them. I want to be married and I want to have kids on my own but it gives me the most options possible for when I do want to become a mother.”

Lapin hopes that sharing her story inspires other women to become more thoughtful about their fertility.

She further adds, “I think it’s a taboo and people don’t talk about it. I hope to break that taboo, hopefully by sharing my own story, to help other young women feel empowered to do the same thing.”

Dr. Jennifer Ashton, ABC News Chief Women’s Health Correspondent describes the egg freezing process in 3 stages.

1st stage: The first stage is “workup” that involves ultrasounds and blood tests.

Doctor Jennifer Ashton says, “In terms of money, [it is] a couple of hundred to maybe a couple of thousand dollars. Not that much time, days to weeks, and physical discomfort [is] little to none.”

2nd Stage: The next stage is the stimulation process where the budget jumps to thousands of dollars.

“This consists of injection of high-powered hormones and monitoring every day by ultrasound to look at your ovaries.  Again, it can take weeks just for one cycle. If you have to do more than one [cycle], months. And physical discomfort, a little more. A lot of women describe this as PMS on steroids.”

3rd Stage: The final stage is the retrieval process that is an operating room procedure performed under anesthesia.

“This jumps up again to thousands of dollars,” Ashton said. “Time wise it’s just one day and physical discomfort varies, usually none but in rare cases you can get something called [ovarian] hyperstimulation syndrome which is very uncomfortable.”

Dr. Jennifer Ashton stresses that the egg freezing process varies from person to person.

Prime Things You Should Know About Before Freezing Your Eggs

Egg Freezing Program India

Is Egg Freezing the right option for you? Let us take a look at what Egg Freezing is. Egg Freezing, also known as mature oocyte cryopreservation, is a process where the eggs (oocytes) are extracted, frozen and preserved for later use. When the woman wishes to become pregnant in future, the eggs are fertilized, and inserted back into the uterus as embryos.

We at Seed ART Bank agree that taking the decision to undergo the egg freezing process is not easy. Some may think that egg freezing process may not yield effective results. While some may think that the eggs retrieval procedure is a painful procedure. But all these are myths which hold no truth. Here is a list of some FAQs about egg freezing.

Who should consider Egg Freezing?

1. Women who are career-oriented and prefer late pregnancy : As fertility probability declines with age, freezing your eggs at an early age increases your chance for future pregnancy. However, unlike the ovary and eggs, the uterus does not age and is able to attain pregnancy up to 40s and 50s. The frozen eggs are stored at a temperature of -196 degrees. So there are lesser chances of deterioration in the egg quality with time.

2. Women detected with cancer : Egg freezing gives an opportunity to store eggs prior to chemotherapy, surgery or radiation processes. These treatments spoil the eggs quality and may lead to infertility. However, in some cases, productive eggs can be presented after the entire cancer treatment process. The preserving options may vary depending on the age of the patient, type of cancer detected, and the cancer-treatment plan followed.

3. Women with genetic history of early menopause : Few types of early menopause may have genetic links. In this case, Egg freezing makes it possible to store eggs before they get depleted.

4. Women undergoing IVF treatment : Couples who are undergoing IVF treatment can opt for Egg Freezing process if they do not wish to fertilize more eggs. In this case, eggs can be fertilized if they wish to expand their family.

When is the right time for egg freezing?

The simplest answer to pursue egg freezing is in the earliest reproductive years, for example, women in 20s and early 30s – to ensure best quality and quantity of eggs.

A woman is born with a number of eggs, which reduce overtime. This deterioration shows why a woman aged 40 and above only has 5 percent chance of becoming pregnant.

What is the optimal number of eggs to be frozen?

It is always best to be prepared to encounter a percentage of eggs obtained that may not last for a longer duration. So it is recommended to preserving approximately 15-20 eggs at one time. Women at an early age may have eggs available from just one stimulation or freeze cycle. Some women may have to undergo the freeze cycle once or more to reach the goal.

Where are the eggs stored?

Once the eggs are vitrified, your eggs will be placed into liquid nitrogen storage containers for safekeeping. Various Mechanisms are available for safe and long-term storage of your eggs. You may be provided with paperwork needed to assist you in arranging for the transport of your eggs.

How long can the eggs be stored?

Freezing of human eggs is a fresh concept. In the case of eggs of a woman at early age, the frozen embryos are known to survive for approximately 5 years or may be more. In case of man, the human sperm is capable of producing healthy pregnancies for decades.

Is egg freezing possible, if a woman has irregular period cycles?

It is a fact that women with irregular cycles have plenty of eggs and they don’t ovulate often. These eggs are stimulated for freezing similarly like in women with regular period cycles. Initial evaluation includes testing to examine the hormonal and egg status.

What are the risks of Egg Freezing?

Egg freezing process may result in different risks. Excessive usage of fertility drugs during the fertility treatment may harm the functioning of your body. Retrieval of eggs may cause bleeding, infection or damage to bowel, bladder or blood vessels. The general anesthesia given during this process may be a point of concern as well.

At Seed ART Bank, egg freezing program has success rates as high as 50 per cent. With our affiliated fertility clinics, pregnancy rates with frozen eggs are very similar to our IVF pregnancy rates using fresh eggs. Moreover, babies born from frozen eggs are as healthy as natural babies and do not have any risk or birth defects.

What is the Egg Freezing cost in India?

Egg freezing cost involves several factors like timing and so on. If you wish to freeze your eggs with us, it will cost you around Rs 50,000/- excluding taxes at the initial stage of the egg freezing process. Later, it will charge you about Rs 25,000/- annually for storage for the next five years.

10-Things to Consider Before Surrogacy Treatment

Surrogacy can be a miraculous gift, a way for a childless or infertile couple to fulfill their desire to become parents. However, precautions should be taken to ensure that all parties have a positive and healthy experience.

Things to Do Before Considering Surrogacy

There are top 10 things you must consider before working with a surrogate.

  1. You must have a medical necessity to participate in surrogacy.

Visit an IVF doctor and ask if he or she recommends that you do surrogacy. Keeping your good figure or a stressful high-powered job are not valid reasons to work with a surrogate mother. Most IVF doctors (and all good IVF doctors) will only work with couples that have a medical reason to do surrogacy. There are sometimes psychological issues that can be included, but we consider psychological to be a medical reason.

  1. Psychological counseling for the couple.

See a counselor to discuss if surrogacy is right for you, and if you can actually do surrogacy. Can you allow someone to carry a child for you? There are women who need a surrogate mother, but will try to control every aspect of the surrogate’s life, and this will cause conflicts between them. Seriously consider child-free living, and discuss this option with your counselor.

  1. Psychological counseling and evaluation for the surrogate & her husband or partner.

What is her motivation for becoming a surrogate mother? Has she done surrogacy before, and what went wrong or right that she feels the need to do it again? Does she understand that the couple will be involved in the pregnancy and may have different opinions regarding pregnancy care and treatment? How involved will she allow the couple to be? Get a written psychological clearance on your surrogate mother.

  1. Understand the legal status of surrogacy law

It is crucial to get an independent legal consultation regarding the laws of the state she lives in. If there are any doubts about finalizing your parental rights, DO NOT Proceed. If you plan on having her deliver in another state, DO NOT Proceed, because she could have a premature delivery. All parties should have independent legal counsel represent them, and all parties must sign legal contracts before any medical procedure is undertaken.

  1. All parties should complete a surrogacy questionnaire that is shared with each other.

These questionnaires include questions about mental illness, hospitalizations, genetic illnesses, prior marriages, prior children, health status, marital status, bankruptcies and legal judgments, prior pregnancy history, infertility history, etc.

  1. Psychological counseling

There should be ongoing psychological counseling for all parties throughout the pregnancy and for at least two months after birth.

  1. The cost of surrogacy

Do you have the financial ability to pay for the pregnancy? Can you cope with the costs of a high-risk pregnancy, premature birth and miscarriage?

  1. At least one parent should be biologically connected to the child being conceived.

If both egg donor and sperm donor are needed with a surrogate mother, be prepared for a far more complicated relationship both legally and psychologically, and ONLY work with a surrogate mother who is a resident in the state of California. California is the only jurisdiction that recognizes such a relationship.

  1. Openly discuss and document everyone’s expectation of the surrogacy relationship.

This is where each party learns what is expected of him or her by the other, and if they can do what is expected of them. They should also discuss the kind of relationship they believe they would want after birth. Many couples and surrogate mothers find they cannot answer this question, because they have never participated in surrogacy before. This is an answer in itself, as it indicates they are open to many possibilities.

  1. Selecting the right surrogacy agency.

Evaluate the advantages to working with a reputable surrogacy agency.

Creating A Relationship With Your Surrogate in India

It is important to build the good relationship with your surrogate as it benefits both the parties. Surrogates are mentally prepared and ready to help others. Their basic aim to become a surrogate is to help you create your family and the pay-off for them is seeing you gazing at your newborn for the first time. In this Post, let’s know the things that can help make your relationship smooth and pleasant. At Seed ART Bank, we have been telling surrogates and intended parents that the basic four things that makes a sound relationship in surrogacy work includes trust, communication, appropriate boundaries and flexibility.

Creating Relationship With Surrogate

Trust
Trust is the first and foremost ingredient to build a good relationship in the surrogacy program. It should be at the core of your relationship with your surrogate. Trust is considered as a mutual gift and boosts the success in any surrogacy program. Surrogates after being selected in the matching program want to feel that you trust them and that you know that your baby is in good hands. They don’t want or need to be managed by you (although of course it’s understandable that you want lots of details). If you have a solid foundation of trust in your surrogate and she in you, you will be able to relax and enjoy your surrogacy journey.

Communication
Communication is the second important ingredient in your surrogacy relationship. Being able to communicate with each other about your relationship and about the pregnancy will certainly help you feel that you are really participating and it will help your surrogate feel that you really care. You can have face-to-face communication or if intended parents reside at some other, you can chat, skype or call with the surrogate at regular intervals. These things are being facilitated by the team of professionals at Seed Art Bank, the largest surrogacy agency in India. The best way to keep open lines of communication with your surrogate is to be interested in her and her life, but you can keep it light and let the relationship develop naturally.

Boundaries
Setting the boundaries is an essential part of any relationship and the surrogacy relationship is no exception. One should be always careful about the thin line between the commitments and services. The parties involved in the surrogacy program should also be careful not to make promises that you can’t keep–remember your surrogacy relationship exists for one goal: to help you create your family. Intended parents sometimes make the mistake of “falling in love at first sight” with their surrogate when they meet her and realize that she is the woman who will help them fulfill their dream of parenthood. In that honeymoon phase they may reveal things or promise things that they later regret. The rule of thumb is: take it slow, be warm and authentic and have good boundaries.

Flexibility
Flexibility is the last ingredient in the surrogacy relationship is. Surrogacy is not a linear process and there are many points in the journey where flexibility will be essential. Remember that your surrogate probably has a very full life outside of the surrogacy and although your journey to parenthood may be first and foremost on your mind, she also has to think about her kids, her partner, and her job, and the surrogacy may not always be first in line for her attention. So, be flexible in your expectations of her. She doesn’t need to return your call instantly to be taking good care of her body and your baby!

Overall, your surrogate’s primary goal is to succeed at having your baby–the relationship that you have along the way is the backdrop for that unfolding story and the beginning chapter in your child’s life. When you trust each other, have good, open communication, live inside of appropriate and fluid boundaries and bring flexibility to all of your expectations you set the stage for a wonderful journey together!
