Can a single Man/Woman pursue Surrogacy and become a parent?
Are you a man/woman! divorcee, or don’t want to get married and are willing to raise your biological child. Don’t worry! With medical technology advancement, today achieving single parenthood has become possible via surrogacy. Single parent surrogacy is certainly possible and many single men have achieved fatherhood of their child.
If you’re one among the list and looking for surrogacy there are some important things to know about surrogacy for singles before moving forward. More and more individuals have become single parents by choice. Every year, thousands and thousands of single men and single women add to their families a child through surrogacy.
Do you know what surrogacy is?
Surrogacy is a method of assisted reproduction technology (ART) where intended- parents, couples, and single parents work with a gestational surrogate who will carry and care for their baby(ies) until birth. Intended parents use surrogacy to start or grow their families when they can’t do so on their own. Surrogacy is possible for every intended person and Single intended parents too generally experience the same process, enjoy the same benefits and face the same challenges as couples pursuing surrogacy, with some exceptions.
Let us discuss it here…
Single parent Surrogacy process
Generally, the surrogacy process is the same for every intended hopeful parent, couple, and single father. Surrogacy is not possible without the in vitro fertilization (IVF) process. IVF is used to create an embryo outside the body in the fertility Laboratory which is then implanted into the womb of the surrogate and is then carried to term by her.
Generally, there are two kinds of surrogacy:
Traditional surrogacy: Here, a single man can hire a surrogate mother himself or arrange by the surrogacy center. That surrogate mother is used to create the embryo. But here the egg donor and the surrogate are the same people, so the surrogate is genetically linked to the child that she carries. This method is not practiced due to many unsolvable parentage issues, complications between parents and the Donor/surrogate.
Gestational surrogacy: This method has replaced the traditional one because the surrogate mother, also called a gestational carrier, is not genetically related to the baby. Single fathers enjoyed the freedom of having their only biological child without the mother’s issues and complications.
Unlike intended couples, every single intended father needs to use a Donor egg to achieve fatherhood in gestational surrogacy. This is the main difference between single-parent surrogacy and surrogacy for couples. We will thoroughly make you understand “gestational surrogacy”. This is a well-established path to parenthood for every individual and couple who has some resources, with thousands of babies born over the years. Gestational surrogacy for a single father involves the help of two separate individuals:
- An egg donor, a woman who will provide eggs (gametes).
- A surrogate mother, or gestational carrier, helps carry a pregnancy to term and delivers the baby.
Look at the diagram and understand the complete processes:
Step 1: Consultation
You book an appointment or register with us. Our coordinators will schedule you to direct free consultation with a fertility specialist. All the queries in your mind can be laid with our experts and he/they will give you a piece of complete knowledge about your surrogacy status.
Step 2: Sign an Agreement
Once you agreed to proceed with surrogacy with the fertility World after consultation. A contract agreement is signed in the presence of a legal surrogacy attorney. All the do’s and don’t will be mentioned in the agreement, upon your agreement on the conditions applied, the contract is signed.
Step 3: Matching and Screening
The most exciting and important step of the surrogacy process is finding the right surrogate mother and the best Egg Donor. Many surrogacy service providers help you find an egg donor and the surrogate mother concurrently, or they may be able to refer you to sperm banks and egg donors within their networks.
Also, single intended parents can choose to work with a known donor, such as a close friend, far relatives. It helps you to save time and money if you have your known surrogate. Once you have identified your donor, the surrogacy process will continue as it would for any other intended parent. Before the surrogacy starts, the surrogate mother and the Egg Donor must undergo medical screening (blood works) to ensure they are healthy enough to carry a pregnancy and excellent egg quality respectively.
- Ultrasound to examine the surrogate uterus.
- The intended father must also undergo bloodwork to check for infectious diseases and genetically linked diseases.
- The intended father is also checked for sperm quality, fertility, and its conditions.
After the matching of the surrogate and the intended father, the Surrogacy program is made official by drafting a legal contract. Each party will have its attorney to ensure that its legal interests are represented and protected. Both the parent and the surrogate meet their respective lawyer individually to review the legal aspects of surrogacy. Once everyone agrees to the terms of the contract and each lawyer has had a chance to review and approve it, contracts will be signed, and the embryo transfer process can begin.
Step 4: Ovarian Stimulation of the Donor
In gestational surrogacy, the surrogate becomes pregnant through a procedure called in vitro fertilization (IVF). An embryo is created in the laboratory and transferred to the surrogate’s uterus, and she(surrogate) is not genetically related to the child. For stimulating the ovary, daily hormonal drugs injections are administered, up to 12 days. Injectable follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), a luteinizing hormone (LH), or both. These medications stimulate more multiple eggs to develop at a time than naturally one egg is produced per month.
The stimulation is monitored via several ultrasounds and blood tests throughout the process to see the stimulation development. After the follicles have reached full-size development, A dose of hCG hormone is administered to trigger the maturation of the oocytes. Surrogacy is incomplete without In-vitro Fertilization (IVF). Here is the diagrammatic representation of the IVF cycle:
Step 5: Egg removal from the Donor
Egg removal is a simple, painless procedure that usually takes about 20 to 30 minutes and is carefully handled by our embryologist. Although the procedure doesn’t hurt, you are slightly queasy, which is why it is performed under sedation with anesthesia. During this process, the eggs produced by mature follicles are retrieved with the help of a scanning probe.
Step 6: Fertilization of the donor egg with father sperm
The retrieved eggs are allowed to combine with the single father sperm for fertilization under the culture medium in the fertility laboratory.
This fertilization can be performed in two ways based on the single father’s sperm qualities. One is the conventional method (natural fertilization in the laboratory). The second fertilization method is Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). The fertilized egg is called an embryo.
Step 7: Embryo development/Culture
During the fertilization phase of donor egg and single father sperm. We ensured that several embryos are created, which can now be graded for quality by their appearance and integrity. This development process lasts for 5 to 6 days; our embryologist takes thorough responsibility for complete viable embryos.
Step 8: Embryo implantation into a surrogate womb
Our IVF specialist firstly prepares the surrogate mother’s uterus ensuring the inner lining of her uterus is of the correct thickness and ready to receive the embryo for a positive pregnancy. After that, the best stage embryo (blastocyst stage) is implanted into the uterus (womb) using a cannula. It is a painless procedure, so it is performed without anesthesia.
Step 9: Pregnancy Test of the surrogate
Two weeks after embryo implantation, we schedule a pregnancy test to check whether the procedure has been successful through a blood test. If pregnancy is confirmed you will follow up with ultrasounds after 20 days. Then, once you’re six weeks into your pregnancy, we will perform an ultrasound scan to check for a heartbeat. Then after a full-term pregnancy, we prepare a delivery for you.
Single Father Surrogacy Laws
If you are a divorced man you must have to have complete documents available to process for single parent surrogacy. In other cases, a bachelor must be above 28 years of age. Most importantly he should be an Indian or should possess an Indian passport. Considering surrogacy for having your biological child, consult an experienced surrogacy professional and attorney to better understand surrogacy laws for your state and circumstances with the help from the Fertility World surrogacy center for Single fatherhood and motherhood.
How do you find the right donor egg?
This step may consume some of your time. It is mentioned above, in the process that the donor must thoroughly match, screen, evaluate, and stimulate and prepare her the best for you. Since, this person will be contributing her genes (via eggs, or oocytes) to your future child’s genetic makeup. However, to minimize your time. The Fertility World will arrange the best surrogate from our database, our surrogates are fully prepared and ready to receive the embryo. Our surrogates are young and healthy women who live locally and have completed some level of pre-screening. If you are searching for a specific physical trait (height, eye or hair color, or specific ethnicity), you can always pick based on your choice, we will provide you with the information of our surrogates.
Because of the oocyte’s delicate structure, the rate at which they thaw after freezing embryos is not always optimal. We highly recommend our single parents use the fresh donor egg cycle for guaranteed surrogacy 100%.
