Surrogacy can be most successful when several factors are considered, including the age and health of the intended parents and surrogate mother, the type of surrogacy arrangement, the quality of the embryos used, and the expertise of the healthcare professionals involved.
The surrogacy success rates can be higher when several factors are considered, included:
Using high-quality embryos: The use of high-quality embryos created through in vitro fertilization (IVF) can increase the likelihood of a successful pregnancy. Factors such as the number of cells, symmetry, and fragmentation can all affect the quality of the embryo. During (IVF) process, the embryo can be screened and tested for genetic abnormalities, which can further increase the chances of a successful pregnancy.
Age and health of the surrogate mother: Generally, younger surrogate mothers who are in good health and have had successful pregnancies in the past may be more likely to have a successful surrogacy experience. The age from 21 to 38 is considered optimal for carrying a pregnancy to term and reducing the risk of pregnancy-related complications.
Type of surrogacy: Gestational surrogacy, where the surrogate carries an embryo created using the intended parents' or donors' gametes, tends to have higher success rates than traditional surrogacy, where the surrogate uses her own egg and is artificially inseminated with the intended father's sperm.
Age and health of the intended parents: Younger intended parents who are in good health and have good quality gametes (eggs or sperm) may have a higher chance of a successful surrogacy. Intended parents may also undergo medical and psychological screening to ensure that they are suitable candidates for surrogacy. This may include tests to evaluate the intended parents' overall health, as well as their fertility.
Expertise of healthcare professionals: Working with a reputable fertility clinic and medical professionals who have experience in surrogacy can help increase the chances of success.
Legal and logistical matters: Having a well-structured surrogacy agreement that addresses legal and logistical matters, such as contracts, insurance, and travel arrangements, can also help increase the chances of success.
It is important to work with a reputable fertility clinic and medical professionals who have experience in surrogacy to address these factors and increase the chances of a successful surrogacy experience. Additionally, having a well-structured surrogacy agreement that addresses legal and logistical matters, such as contracts, insurance, and travel arrangements, can also help increase the chances of success.
