Hey, I hope you’re doing good. 10 days is a very long time. You are indeed a very strong woman. I am happy that your husband is supportive. If you think this procedure is for you then you should opt for it. Make sure you are properly researched. In many areas, the process is illegal so make sure the place you visit everything is being done there legally. Apart from that make sure that the clinic is providing you with the child’s documents. This is something I have been told is very important. Also, make sure that the surrogate is chosen after a proper procedure. The clinics ensure that the surrogate already has children doesn’t drink and does not have any past illness. Make sure the clinic you visit has these criteria as well. Apart from that clinics also do a medical test on the surrogate to ensure she has no illness. This again is very important for the baby and the surrogates safety. Best of luck to you I hope everything goes fine.
I hope you are doing well and good. I felt deep sorrow to know about your infertility problem. You are not alone in this journey. We are in the same boat. many ladies are trying their best to cope with this issue. Stay strong and hope for the best. It filled my heart with joy that you are going for surrogacy. Baby dust at your doorsteps. Good luck to you and best wishes too!
So sad to hear that you are also infertile. Its problem is too much nowadays. Many people are worried because of this problem. Sometimes it happens that doctors either can’t judge the problem. Sometimes the problem is undefined. 10 years is really long period. People usually lose hope after 3,4 years. You are so brave that you tried for 10 years. It’s good that at least you have found the solution to your problem. Surrogacy is really a good treatment. Many people have tried this treatment. And they all succeed in it. And yes condition of the clinic also really matters. And Ukraine is really good for this infertile treatments. Biotexcom is the best clinic there. You should really go for it. Best of luck. May your wish comes true.
Hi, luv! There is so much pain in your post, I can hardly breathe. 10 yrs of unsuccessful tries must be heartbreaking. You’re so brave to face. I’m so proud you don’t give up and keep on moving. I guess using surrogacy option is the best for you. I hope you’re well treated at biotexcom. Guys there are awesome.We’re currently waiting for the ET. Planned 2 5day blasts - feeling nervous and excited at the same time. Hope we’ll be both successful with the clinic. PS: This time we’re working for the sibling
Thank you for your reply. Unfortunately IP can face various problems with clinics throughout the world. Ukraine is not the acception. Like any other country. That’s why it’s so important to get good feedback on the point and talk to more people about this or that clinic before even contacting one. You did so right by writing this precaution. Also the thing you’re doing for people is awesome! May God bless you!
I have also undergone surrogacy in Bio tex clinic in Ukraine. I can say taht they are the best. Affordable and quality services. However, the hundreds of families who have completed the surrogacy process will assure you that the pros of surrogacy extend far beyond that. Here are just a few of the advantages of surrogacy for intended parents: For those who have struggled with infertility, LGBT couples, and those with medical conditions that make pregnancy unsafe, surrogacy is often the answer to years of unsuccessful attempts to create a family. Gestational surrogacy often enables one or both parents to maintain a biological relationship with their child. Many intended parents become close with their surrogate and her family during the process, developing meaningful bonds that can last a lifetime. A legally binding contract outlining everyone’s expectations will be negotiated and signed prior to the embryo transfer, so everyone will know exactly what to expect during the surrogacy process. A court order is obtained prior to birth of the child, confirming the intended parents’ legal rights.
I’m happy for you, noreen. Since a friend of mine is seriously considering coming to Ukrainian biotexcom for surrogacy, I’m looking for some reviews for her. As As far as I know surrogacy process with them goes like this.
Initial consultation. It usually contains the following activities: A set of tests depending on the program (fasting is mandatory). Consultation with a fertility specialist who will be in charge of your program (in case of stimulation you will need to have the transvaginal ultrasound check done). Consultation with a manager who will guide you through the program step by step. Signing of contracts. Before any initial consultation you will receive the Guidelines for the Initial Consultation – failure to follow these recommendations may affect the initial consultation in a negative way.
Search & confirmation of a surrogate mother, matching process. Waiting time depends on the type of contact.
Stimulation & synchronisation stage (about 2 weeks). The cycle of egg donor or the biological mother is synchronised with the cycle of a surrogate mother. According to your contract you have to follow all doctors instruction. In case of self-treatment or violation of the treatment protocol, the clinic may cancel the cycle and terminate the contract.
Fertilization day, embryo transfer - the 2nd visit. In case the biological mother undergoes hormonal stimulation and is being prepared for egg retrieval, the second visit may take up to 10 days. If we are talking about surrogacy using own eggs it is not recommended to leave the same day. Flying the following day is fine.The rules for sperm donation are similar as for the initial consultation – a man needs to abstain from ejaculation from 3 to 5 days before. After fertilisation the embryo development is monitored by embryology unit. The embryo transfer takes place on the 5th day. You will receive the protocol of embryo cultivation and transfer within 3 working days after the embryo transfer.
HCG test, pregnancy confirmation. The first ultrasound scan is carried out in 2 weeks after the positive HCG test by the doctor in charge of the program. The report will be send the same or the next day after the check.
Pregnancy monitoring. Delivery. Obtaining of the birth certificate for the baby (up to 1 week).
Please do correct if I’m mistaken. Then I’m more interested in how smooth the process went for you. Whether you’re satisfied with drs/nurses, lab’s work. Did you undergo it with own egg or donor egg? How long did you have to wait for the actual start of the procedure? What requirements did you have for your surrogate. How old is she? Everything one must be interested in when stepping into this field.
Here’s some of my background. Me 40; DH 45. DX - PCOS, endo, one ovary and tube; MFI. (This is so called 3rd type PCOS. In the third type in the patient there is more than one ovarian cyst that has been engorged for a long period of time, resulting in size and shape permanence of the cysts. This type of PCOS is common with severe diagnoses of endometriosis, any form of extensive surgery in the pelvic region, and chronic pelvic inflammatory disease. Women do not respond to fertility drugs with overactive or hyperstimulation but instead are considered to be poor responders to the drugs.) Oct 2008: Mike is here! 7lbs 14oz, 20.75 inches; C-Section.
TTC #2 since Sept 2015. BFN= 3 IVFs. IVF#4 – early mc @6w4d, June 2018. Last IVF #5 (5dt of two 2AA blasts) – BFP!!
Beta #1, 11dp5dt= 295.
Beta #2, 13dp5dt= 825 (doubling time of 32 hours!); progesterone 130.
Last time we were using donor eggs at Ukrainian clinic bio texcom. Quite far away from home. But the clinic was doing its best to make our say with them comfortable and the most effective. We’ve just had 7wks scan. That was so lovely!!!
The thing which amazed us was how clean everything was! Both lab and clinic had everyone in wearing shoe covers. Everything seemed sterile! They first consulted us with quality and up-to-date information. This way they earned our attention and compelled us to pass treatments with them. The owner of the clinic manages the business aspect of the clinic properly surely. All their plans are well thought out, suitable for every pocket and requirements. Health care is an honorable cause. Helping people cope with their conditions has always been one of the cornerstones of social responsibility. Patients who learn about the clinic from the Internet cannot judge it by the actual professionalism of doctors or effectiveness of their prescriptions. So they have to search for other sources to make sure they’re on the right way. The same was with us. We were serfing different boards, talking to more people discussing their experience with biotexcom. And to our amazement there were loads of posts, mostly saying the clinic is gonna be the right place for surrogacy. We also read info from blogs and contacted some of the authors for more insight. Amazing people they are–those taking their time to share their success stories and giving hope and good advice to others. So coming back to our first visit to the clinic, with the 1st step made we felt it does stand out!!! Just like from the pictures- pure, clean, comfrortable, promising…Only positive memories surely.
