Donor sperm and surrogacy
I’ve heard about surrogacy before. But I was afraid that it can be useless or dangerous. Last month my friend told me that they have gone for the surrogacy. They spent 5 years ttc and almost lost their hope to get pregnant. Now their surrogate is pregnant. I was surprised to hear it. I looked through different forums like this. I found a lot of positive stories of the surrogacy. As I still have no kids I’m thinking of the surrogacy with donor sperm. I’m not married and I am 45. I know that my eggs are still valid. And i’m not going to get married. Any ideas? Will it work for me? Is it expensive?

Surrogacy is possible even if you are single. They will use donor sperm for the embryo transfer. That’s it. The baby born will be genetically related to you. My daughter and her husband used the help of the surrogate almost two years ago. It worked and now I have an amazing 9 months old grandson. There’s a lot of info about surrogacy on the web. So there’s no need to explain all the details. But I can answer the most popular questions. If your eggs are still valid you have to hurry up. It won’t last forever as you are 45. Use this chance to get your biological baby. Later you will just have to adopt. The service is pretty expensive. But you can choose the clinic abroad. For example, in Europe it costs not that much. A lot of medical centers offer their clients to choose the most affordable package. For example you can choose the cheapest package but you won’t be able to have a couple of tries to transfer the embryo. My daughter has chosen the VIP package. It guarantees that the surrogate will get pregnant and you will get your baby. It is expensive. But, I guess, it is worth paying. Are you sure that you are ready to become a single parent? I know how hard it is being a single mom. My husband died in a couple years after my daughter was born. I had to do everything on my own. It was very hard. I couldn’t believe it was happening to me. But I was young and strong enough to raise a baby. Think twice before saying No to marriage, dear. What if you still can find your Mr Right?

Hi, we also turned to surrogacy, because it was our last chance. I can not answer your question about whether or not you can go on surrogacy if you're lonely. You should understand that in many countries of surrogacy altogether unavailable. Therefore, you need to consider the laws of the country in which you live or look for a clinic abroad. But you also asked a question about your age. I do not even know, for example, after 42 years we are forbidden to do IVF with our biological material. This means that you only need to use donor material. But maybe this is only in our country so.And after 50 years in our country in general is forbidden to do IVF. So I can not answer your question about the suitability of your eggs. Do you visit a doctor, do you consult with him on this issue? Is your information correct? When was the last time you had a complete examination? It seems to me, if you really want to get a positive result from the surrogacy, you need to seriously think about it. First, you need to constantly consult a doctor. Secondly, you need to think about your financial situation. For example, we very seriously considered this issue. We spent a long time looking for a clinic abroad, for a long time we decided on a surrogacy. But in the end we decided that we must not tarry. Time flies so fast, and we would like to have time to grow not only our children, but also our grandchildren.We chose one of the Ukrainian clinics, namely biotexcom. First of all we worried about legal issues. But in Ukraine, commercial surrogacy is allowed and laws are loyal. And also in disputable situations the legislation supports the side of biological parents. And besides, the cost of surrogacy is much lower than, for example, in America or in Russia. So I advise you to consult your doctor. And if you fall under the age limits, then you can go to the above-mentioned clinic. We are not subject to age restrictions, because I'm 34 years old, and my husband is 40 years old. But as far as I know, there are no such age restrictions in Ukraine. Everything will depend on the state of your health and your eggs. And I also want to give you a little advice - do not doom yourself to loneliness. For what reason did you decide that you will never marry again? Or I can ask differently - why did you decide that you will not meet your man any more?

Hi there, It is really a very good procedure. I must recommend you this. Please visit Biotexcom website for more help in this regard. It's not very expensive at all. It includes packages. If you cannot afford bigger package go for Economy. You'll find all the help from clinic website. I would really recommend you this because my friend tried that and it is very helpful.

Sandra your query important but i want to let you know that you need to verify your account. Surrogacy provides a rewarding experience for both the family and the surrogate. Surrogacy does not only benefit the families. These represent a few of the many reasons to have a child through surrogacy. You should visit surrogacy clinic in ukraine they are providing lots of facilities to their patients.Surrogacy is an incredible process. Give a try.

Many things are written and said about surrogacy. Luckily in some countries surrogacy is legal. Couples are turning more towards surrogacy. In some countries it is expensive. However in some countries the rates are quite economical. Services provided in Ukraine Kiev are top class and in budget. Plus they provide you with accommodation. For further insight do have a look at this https://youtu.be/IHp-3NEaQjA

In spite of the fact that there is no regulatory act that can cover all the aspects of the surrogate motherhood in depth, I can not answer your question about whether or not you can go on surrogacy. It's not too much expensive sandra. There are many countries like ukraine where it is allowed. clearly states that a surrogate mother has no parental rights on the child, that she carries and gives birth to for a childless family. She can't claim to be a legal mother. she was even allowed to see the baby afterwards. Also, the further scenario heavily depends on the relationship settled between intended parents and a surrogate throughout the preparation and pregnancy. The bond can be so affectionate that they can stay in touch with each other. You need not to worry i will suggest you in the end to have a child.

Hi there dear, How are you. I am sure that it is going to work for you. The reason to my surety is that your eggs could be valid because you are not married. You got the advantage of saving yourself from hard feelings while using donor eggs for the surrogate. You just want a baby. It is going to be really great for you. Just go for it I must say. This is very good for you. I am really happy for you. Your age factor might create problem for it but I watched the videos on youtube for some clinic in Ukraine. Just search from youtube and you will find more information about it that could be very helpful for you.

Surrogacy can be a wonderful experience, but the journey requires both hard work and commitment. As a parent, it may be easy to think solely about the end result- holding your child in your arms. As a surrogate, it is easy to think solely of the incredible gift you will give to your Intended parents. But it’s important to consider all of the challenges and sacrifices that both parties will have to face to realize these special moments.About four years ago I started on a journey that would dramatically change my life: a journey to become a gestational surrogate. This was my journey to help a family grow by carrying their child for them since they could not safely do so themselves.To do this I had to conquer my intense fears and fight through countless injections. Although I started out terrified to even look at a needle, soon enough I was successfully giving myself intramuscular injections with a two-inch long needle every night. I took medications three times a day to control my hormones. I went to weekly and biweekly doctors appointments, sometimes driving 30 miles to do so. We suffered a miscarriage. After getting pregnant again with twins, I faced the loss of one baby and four weeks of strict bed rest. Seven months later, in April 2014, I went through a grueling labor that lasted over 18 hours and resulted in a cesarean section. Then I faced eight long weeks of recovery. I gave all that to a family I didn’t even know when I started. I put my life, my other goals, and my family on hold. On this journey I learned something about myself: I can. I can overcome my fears. I can face the impossible. I can help.

Nothing is more expensive than your own kids. Surrogacy is becoming very common throughout the world. A number of clinics in different countries are offering their services in this procedure. But in some countries, it is considered to be illegal and the government does not support it, that, why is expensive. The best country known for surrogacy is Ukraine. Entering Ukraine does not require a visa for European countries, America, Canada and most of CIS and Scandinavian countries. Ukrainian legislation concerning assisted methods of reproductive medicine is extremely favorable and loyal to the surrogate motherhood and egg and sperm donation. Both procedures are legal here and consolidated in the number of legislative acts. BioTexCom clinic is providing it's best services in surrogacy. You will find there good prices that are cheaper than other European countries. Professional doctors with a high level of solid experience are there to monitor the procedure of surrogacy. Just go to that clinic, I am sure you will get the wish of your life.

Hi, it’s not useless but it is full of doubts just like the process of pregnancy. No extra chemicals are involved. As you know infertility is taking a toll in the last few years, treatments are increasing and advancing similarly. My friend went through surrogacy 1 year back as she was suffering from hepatitis C and wasn’t able to carry her baby due to her weak immunity. Now she has a baby girl, the cutest little munchkin. Well, I asked her about the clinic in which she informed me that she traveled to Ukraine for the procedure. She already searched for the clinic beforehand by the name BioTex, when she reached there she discussed her matter along with her sister to the medical staff. Her husband came later. You can’t believe she chose the packages according to her financial plan and; oh my, the overall services were amazing throughout the program, from outstanding cooperation to the most welcoming staff. Even if there were doubts, the behavior of the staff made her heart melt. They were even willing to do several attempts. That’s what professionalism with the kind heart stands for. The finest part was they provided the necessary medical checkups to the surrogate mother as well the sperm donor (husband). I would highly suggest it as only I have seen the sparkle and satisfaction in my friend’s eyes. But go look for its term in case of single mothers.

Hi Sandra! Welcome to the forum. Your research about surrogacy is correct. There are many couples around the world who are enjoying their babies only because of surrogacy. You asked if it is expensive or not? Well they are, but there is a clinic BioTexCom in Ukraine, their offers are quite reasonable as well. They offer three packages. You can check with them. Hope you will get a positive response. Wish you best luck!

Hey sandra! there is a lot of talk against surrogacy, but from personal experience, it is a really wonderful thing for parents who are struggling to conceive. without surrogacy, i would not have been able to have my son, and have the family that i do today. i am so grateful that options like this exist for people like me and my husband who tried and tried for so many years with no success. my son is the splitting image of my husband as a baby and i cant tell you how good it feels to have finally started the family that we always wanted. its a really good thing that you are doing your research, and you should always look into things really well before making such a big decision. so research on, and keep looking up surrogacy. ill post a link to the clinic i used so you can check that out too. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3wkbgaaXc2XaxTYJhtR0rA

Hi Sandra, yes the trend of surrogacy is there for quite sometime and people are benefiting from it. you asked two things one is related to cost, then yes it is very costly particularly in USA, but it's prices are relatively low in India and also in Ukraine. now answering other question, well I have experience of BioTexCom, a surrogacy clinic in Ukraine, they are doing amazing job, but unfortunately it will not work for you as they are offering there services to only married heterogeneous couples.

If your eggs are still valid, I'm wondering why you are not trying to get pregnant yourself with sperm donation. Anyway, it is your own choice. The place where I went to, for my surrogacy was very affordable. That clinic is also reliable. too, Surrogacy is not dangerous if you make the right choices. You can totally go for it. It can work for anyone. Good luck with it. Choose the right clinic for it.

Hi. I am glad that you are still considering to have a child through surrogacy. I myself have a baby daughter that I had through surrogacy. It is a beautiful process and should be encouraged in society. As for the expense of surrogacy well it basically depends on which country you are applying for. I went to a clinic in Ukraine that really helped me out. Apart from assuring me of success and fulfilling their promise, they also paid for the cost of traveling and accommodation. If you are looking for good surrogacy clinics that I sure hope you look for them in Ukraine. Best of luck

Hi. Hope you are well. If you should really think about it. The quality of eggs starts to decline with age. So, I think it might be okay for you to go for it now. You don't want bad quality eggs. That way you might need donated eggs and your child won't be your biologically. I'm not saying you should rush into things but think about it. Good luck.

Surrogacy is very popular today. Many people are going for it today. surrogacy is the most common method or way of having a child. i was also very stressed during my first marriage as i had many complications while getting pregnant.

We are looking for a good clinic to support us and guide us through the whole process.

Hi Sandra! That's really true! It happens like it. Surrogacy seems a difficult process...But, eventually ends up with success...Last year my cousin sister had surrogacy. Actually, she has had HYS a few years ago. But, she didn't have a child already. So, doctors recommend her to have surrogacy. For which, she went to a Ukrainian center. It worked well for her! I mean she has a baby girl now. I'm really happy for her. Well, yes! Sandra? If you would ask me, I'll definitely recommend it for someone else. So, yeah! Wish me luck!

Hey there. I hope you're doing well. Surrogacy is an elite choice. It's expensive. That's because it has a high success rate. So, automatically, people prefer it over other assisted conception methods. The best thing about it is the fact that it's really safe. You don't get pregnant yourself. The surrogate is usually passed fit by doctors. I'd suggest you go for it. If you plan to go with it, there's a clinic in Ukraine. They are really good. Genuine professionals, know exactly what they're doing. They have affordable rates. Good luck!

Surrogacy worked like a charm for me. I am going to have twin daughters from surrogacy. We flew to Ukraine for surrogacy from Japan. Japan has banned surrogacy that is why we had to move to some other country. In Ukraine at a very popular clinic we started our journey of surrogacy. The clinic is very good at their best in surrogacy. We are so happy that we are going to have our daughters soon.

Hey. I hope you will be a mother soon. If you are infertile then I think you can go for it. It is an amazing and safe procedure to have babies. I was upset when I came to know about my infertility. I decided to go for IVF. I went for it but later I came to know that I am not getting pregnant even through IVF. I also went for treatments but I just wasted my 5 years in it. So I mad my mind that I should go for surrogacy. I started searching for a clinic. I found an affordable clinic in Europe. They were also willing to provide me with a surrogate. I went there 2 years ago and now I have a baby. I am so happy I chose it. I hope this would help you. You should go for it.

Hey! Just lost the words. 45 and not married. I mean WOW Lady! Such a charm you are. I mean women like me just stay worried about what world would say if I won't have a family and life partner. I struggled much just to sustain my married life. Only because I was worried that divorce is a huge thing and world would not accept me. But I have to say this woman like you retain the faith of women like me. I wish and pray that soon you would have a baby. Thank you for existing. And yes you are on the correct path. You deserve to have a baby. I know you would take a very good care of her. And surrogacy would surely help you in this.
