When you are traveling
to another country for IVF/ Surrogacy Program, it is advisable to do Pre- IVF tests for both partners in your own country to ensure your eligibility:
For female partners: Hormone tests like FSH, LH, Estradiol, Prolactin, TSH, and AMH. These tests can be performed on Day2 to Day3 of her cycle and pelvic ultrasound to rule out the possibility of fibroids, cysts, polyps, or fluid in the uterus.
For male partner: Sperm analysis
For both partners: There are few infectious disease tests that are mandatory for both partners. These tests are done to make sure that prospective parents are not passing any disease to their offspring. These tests include hepatitis B and C, HIV, Gonorrhea and Chlamydia, syphilis.
There might be few additional tests as per the screening guidelines for that specific country. In case if you are using egg donor/sperm donor, medical tests are not required for a partner who is not donating his/her biological materials. These tests are valid for 3-6 months.
Generally, surrogate mothers will be recruited for your program by your medical team based on her previous obstetrical history and medical tests. It is important to choose a surrogate mother who is at the right age group ( 21- 32 years), she should have at least one kid of her own and should be free of any medical or psychological illness. In case she is married, her husband’s consent is needed.
Each surrogate also receives an in-depth psychological evaluation and counseling prior to being enrolled into any surrogacy program. Besides the medical team and admin team counseling, the surrogate is also counseled by the lawyer to set her expectations and legal rights. We make sure that she, and her husband if married, are both committed to and fully understand the entire process. These are few tests done on surrogate mother as and when needed:
- CBC/hb (Complete blood count/Hemoglobin)
- Blood Group
- HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus)
- HbsAg (Hepatitis B)
- VDRL (Syphilis)
- HCV (Hepatitis C)
- FSH (CD2-4) (Follicle Stimulating Hormone) , tests for ovarian reserve, must be measured on day 2-4 of menses.
- LH (CD2-4) (Luteinizing hormone) Must be measured on day 2-4 of menses
- TSH/T3/T4 (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone/Thyroid Function Test)
- Pelvic ultrasound for Antral Follicle Count (Day 3-5 of menses )

For male partners, the first trip can be -4-5 days long, this would include giving 2 samples of sperms (for freezing or for doing fresh cycle) contract signing, and visiting the medical team and local coordinator. It is required to have at least 2 samples of semen during this visit. If you are heterosexual couples and the female partner is using her own eggs (self-cycling), then she needs to stay almost 2 weeks to complete the stimulation and egg pick up process.
The doctor would consult with you in advance- however, at most 1-2 embryos of A-grade are implanted, in case, you have additional good embryos, that will be frozen for future use. Each country has specific laws for the number of embryos transfer in surrogate mothers, so you can confirm it with your follow up manager well in advance.
With IVF, there is more probability of having twins, generally out of 5 successful IVF, one can be twins!
However, in the case of 3 triplets growing, selective fetus reduction is done to avoid health issues in babies and surrogate mothers.
Generally, the preparation of surrogate mother is same, and 2-4 A good embryos are transferred to her uterus in hope of implantation. Now, if 1 or 2 embryos implant and grow, this is pure luck.
Once you select the egg donor, then we can move in approx. 4-6 weeks, this is the minimum time it takes to prepare and synchronize donor and surrogate properly. In case you are self-cycling, our coordinator will assist you in terms of planning and arrival so that the female partner cycle can be matched with a surrogate mother.
