Donor choice

The agency you have selected is in charge of looking for people who want and wish to help other couples to fulfill their dream, and the same agency makes the selection process from scheduling the appointment, talking with the donor, conducting medical examinations, psychological and physical, so that you can meet the requirements that the same agency has.

For this reason, if the person meets the conditions, they can start with the donation for a new or single couple who want to start the process. Clearly, the agency will have a database in case parents want to know the donor from the basics of their physical features, such as health, since every donation always chooses the best eggs or, if it is the case of sperm, always choose the most healthy so there are no future complications.

Surrogate pregnant selection

You must ask yourself, how the agencies do the selection process of the surrogate, what they take into account when choosing them, if it is possible that the couple can meet and decide.

For this, it is important to know the woman you have selected, because she has certain requirements for it to be a safe and effective process. Basically the surrogate mother is a woman who wants to help people who want a child and who for various reasons is not possible, and they give their womb to be able to do so.

It must be a healthy woman, who has had children, since it is a source to know whether or not she had complications in pregnancy and childbirth, she must be physically and mentally healthy, and when the selection is already made, the surrogate mother will also have the decision to accept or not the partner.

If the couple must agree to meet her and create a bond with the surrogate mother It is essential and the program will be the bridge so that they can meet, but, just as the couple can make the decision, the pregnant woman can also accept it or not. It may also happen that the couple does not want to create that bond and the agency will be in charge of choosing the surrogate and keeping the couple informed of the process.

It may happen that the selection of the surrogate mother is close to the couple, that is, a relative or friend, who the couple has previously consulted and communicates to the program so that they generate all possible studies so that it can decide if the treatment is possible with the person the couple has selected.

Sample collection and freezing

To start with the treatment, samples of the couple are required, whether it is the case, a sample of eggs or sperm that will be studied in the laboratory, who are in charge of choosing the best ones for fertilization. And freezing is necessary for further treatments.

Embryo formation

After obtaining the samples and fertilization, an embryo culture will be presented that can take between 3 to 7 days.

Embryo transfer

The best quality embryos are then selected for transfer to the surrogate mother's uterus through the in vitro fertilization .


After the transfer, after 10 to 15 days, the pregnant woman will take a pregnancy test to find out if it was positive or not. If it was positive, it should be taken into account that, during the nine months of gestation, the woman goes through physical changes such as hormonal, medical controls month by month to know how the pregnancy is developing, the health of the baby and the pregnant woman, the parents They will also be able to know about the process that the same clinic or the pregnant woman communicates to the couple through photos or calls if possible.
