Treatments Performed in Surrogacy Centres in India
- IVF / Gestational Surrogacy:This is the most preferred and common form of surrogacy. In this treatment procedure, a woman undergoes pregnancy created by the egg and sperm of the couple. The husband’s sperms through the process of In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF) or Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) fertilizes the egg of the wife in a contained laboratory environment, and the embryo is transferred into the surrogate’s uterus. The surrogate carries the pregnancy for nine months until the baby is born. Gestational surrogacy can also be done by donor sperm and donor egg wherein the resulting child is genetically unrelated to the intended parents and surrogate.
Gestational Surrogacy is performed by IVF centres in India in the following cases:
- IVF surrogacy is indicated in women whose ovaries are producing eggs but they do not have a uterus. For example, congenital absence of uterus (Mullerian agenesis) or surgical removal of the uterus (hysterectomy) due to cancer, ruptured uterus or severe hemorrhage in Caesarian section.
- A woman whose uterus is malformed (Unicornuate uterus, T shaped uterus, Bicornuate uterus with rudimentary horn) or is damaged (T.B of the endometrium, severe Asherman’s Syndrome) or at risk of rupture and is unable to carry pregnancy to term can also be recommended for IVF surrogacy.
- Women who have repeated miscarriages or have repeated failed IVF cycles may be advised IVF surrogacy in view of unexplained factors, which could be responsible for failed implantation and early pregnancy loss.
- Women who suffer from medical problems like diabetes, cardio-vascular disorders, or kidney diseases like chronic nephritis, whose long-term prospect for health is good but pregnancy would be life threatening.
- Woman with Rh factor incompatibility.
- Surrogacy Using an Egg Donor:Sometimes parents, who choose to have a gestational surrogate carry their child, cannot genetically contribute to their offspring due to infertility problems nor do they wish to have their surrogate mother be the genetic mother. Parents in these situations usually rely on outside assistance via sperm and/or egg donation. In this process, the egg donor undergoes hormone therapy over the course of 2-3 weeks, which causes her ovaries to release more than one egg. Aroundfifteen eggs are usually harvested during a typical surgical procedure. The eggs are then inspected for quality and are immediately fertilized with sperm from the intended father or donor. The embryo is then inserted to the uterus of the surrogate mother to carry the child. This procedure is legal in several countries including Asia where due to excellent medical infrastructure, high international demand and ready availability of surrogates. Surrogacy centres in Indiaall perform surrogacy using donor eggs and not surrogate’s eggs as it may lead to legal complication
- Altruistic Surrogacy:Altruistic surrogacy is a form of surrogacy where the surrogate mother receives no financial reward for her pregnancy on the relinquishment of the child. The altruistic surrogate can be a member of the family or a friend. They must be helping the intended parents without any kind of financial favor from them. They will only receive reimbursement for medical costs. In many countries, this is the only type of surrogacy that is legal.
- Commercial Surrogacy:Commercial Surrogacyis a form of surrogacy in which a gestational carrier receives financial reward to carry a child to maturity in her womb. This procedure is legal in several countries including in Asia, particularly in India where due to excellent medical infrastructure, high international demand and ready availability of surrogates, it is reaching industry proportions.
