The human reproductive system is extremely fragile and vulnerable.
Female fertility depends on a combination of factors and often it is not even possible to determine the original cause of the “breakdown”.
Even with the presence and functionality of the uterus, hormonal failure alone can lead to extremely severe infertility, which puts an end to a woman’s desire to become a mother.
And alas, every year surrogate motherhood becomes a necessity for single women more and more often. The laws of the world are merciless to this segment of patients: in fact, today only a few countries offer this type of treatment. We tried to use the information and capabilities of all or almost all countries that somehow regulate surrogacy for single female, we constantly update information about any changes in their legislation.
So, today the most probable seem to be several countries: USA, Belarus, Greece and Georgia, etc.
Each of them has its own advantages and disadvantages: for example, Georgia are available only for those patients who can provide their own biomaterial, and Greece allows surrogacy on donor embryos, but the waiting period for joining the program sometimes exceeds a year.
The USA offers excellent conditions for single mothers, but is not always affordable due to the cost of treatment – over $150,000.
What questions and concerns most often arise among patients who decide to use the procedure of surrogacy for a single woman?
- Is it possible to implement the program when a woman cannot provide her own eggs?
Yes, it is possible in some countries.
- Can I choose an egg and/or sperm donor?
Yes, in some countries this option is also available.
- Up to what age can the patient’s own oocytes be used?
As a rule, up to 40-42 years. More precisely, the reproductologist will be able to assess the situation based on the results of ultrasound and examinations.
In order to provide the most accurate information for the expectant mother, we will clarify some details of your medical and legal history – this will help us get a complete picture with all its pros and cons, and thus choose the most reasonable algorithm for your program.
