The majority of patients who each year go to an agency specialized in surrogacy, regardless of the origin of their problem or difficulty, express some questions, regarding the safety and success rate, of these processes and the mishaps that occur. can develop.
Agents specialized in surrogacy offer the possibility of clarifying any doubt, through appointments, interviews or consultations. In this way they ensure that every requirement they need is met and understand the step by step, prior to the technique.
What to do if the surrogacy fails?
Surrogacy as an assisted reproductive technique is one of the most popular among couples of the same sex. It is also a choice among heterosexual couples, but its percentage is less far-reaching. Similarly, regardless of the family nucleus, it is not a point that hurts success rates.
Surrogacy goes through different stages that can trigger potential hardship. This does not indicate that surrogacy is not the ideal option for intending parents, who have presented these variants.
The complete procedure can be broken down into general stages, and in each of them there is a small percentage, in which some difficulty may arise that does not allow the intended parents to immediately obtain the correct and favorable results.
When the couple undergoes the initial physical and therapeutic examinations, it may happen in some cases that the couple presents some psychological alteration that could put the health of the new family member at risk, so it cannot apply and the surrogacy would not be carried out. I finish it.
In these cases, couples are advised to be honest about their mental health, if they have developed a disorder and with the help of a psychologist, follow medical treatment.
If the surrogacy center is small in scope, and the physical evidence does not match or compete with that of the donor eggs. The technique can become very risky and with a high rate of errors, so the treatment is intervened.
For these situations, it is not the end of the surrogacy request. Couples who go through these incidents should understand that it is very difficult for the process to be supported if all the general health requirements do not apply. The specialized centers have a range of options, so that each couple has compatibility in the fertilization process.
In vitro fertilization:
In IVF technique, it includes genetic material. Male gametes are first extracted from the entire supplied sample, endowed with the requirements to be highly efficient and healthy, with a greater chance of success. When fertilization occurs, they have a 95% chance of fertilization without any alteration.
In the event that the couple goes through an unsuccessful attempt, it is recommended to go back to the previous analyzes and observe if the sperm or eggs have any defects.
When the egg is not from the donor, but from the intended mother. He undergoes the same study. It is unlikely that the problem arises from an egg donation, the reason for this is because it is already processed and previously analyzed genetic material.
After the ovum is fertilized, the pregnant woman's uterus is inseminated. In this process, which brings together a series of previous steps, such as menstruation control, hormonal conditions and transplantation. Possible errors can occur in this step because it is a highly complicated process, it is known as the implantation window.
A bad implantation of the ovum in the uterus can produce an abortion days later, or an incorrect development of the fetus. Hence the importance of the fertilized ovum being processed with complete compatibility in the process of collecting genetic material.
In the last process, which is the longest because it includes from the verification of the pregnancy, until its birth; some alteration or complication may occur that the doctor must attend to. In the event that the life of the pregnant woman is in danger, a report will be drawn up where abortion is an option. For this reason, the mother undergoes constant check-ups and care that ranges from strict diets to seasons of rest and relaxation.
With the points broken down above, and even though these are possible errors or highly sensitive processes, the rates of these failed surrogacy techniques are very low. This is because specialized agencies have a fertility center and a medical center that verifies each test and certifies each of the legal processes. That despite not being included in the possible risks, they form an important phase so that the intended parents do not have problems during and after the surrogacy.
If with all the preparations, the couple does not get a successful surrogacy. He does not undergo a new surrogacy process until the cause is detected, and the preliminary tests are done again. This can seriously affect the intended parents. But it must be clear that it does not mean the end for the couple.
After the previous study, and if no major causes arise, the intentional parents in a few months will be able to have the gratifying experience of becoming parents, overcoming past and current adversities
And if for some eventuality, which is unlikely, the couple after undergoing surrogacy again is a failed attempt. A thorough study will be made again on the cause and it is compared with the previous procedure. Based on the results, a particular solution may be issued. These are very unlikely cases, however it is always recommended that the most important thing is that the couple who undergo surrogacy have a positive attitude.
They will live a unique experience that will lead to the birth of a new family member and an exciting experience that urges them with the laughter and love of a family.
