Medical Requirements for Surrogates
The key to a successful surrogacy is your health! Throughout the surrogacy process, you will need to undergo various medical tests and procedures, as well as take fertility medications. Your well-being will be closely monitored by medical professionals every step of the way.
- Medical Screening: This is part of the initial screening process. The medical screening will involve a physical as well as a variety of lab and blood work testing. You will be screened for sexually transmitted diseases and other communicable diseases, viruses and infections that can affect your fertility, and drug use. Your spouse or partner will likely also need to be screened for STDs and drug use. You will also have an ultrasound to determine the health of your uterus.
- Fertility Treatments: Once legal contracts with the intended parents are signed, you will prepare for your surrogate pregnancy with fertility treatments. You will be prescribed several medications, which might include hormones and birth control pills; these help regulate your cycle and prepare you for IVF. You can expect more blood tests, injections, and ultrasounds throughout the IVF process – as well as through the beginning of your pregnancy.
- Embryo Transfer: The intended mother’s (or donor’s) egg will be fertilized in the laboratory using the intended father’s (or donor’s) sperm. After an incubation period, the fertilized embryo is transferred into your uterus for implantation. This procedure is quick and painless and usually does not require medication or anesthesia. You may be required to stay at the fertility clinic for a few hours and rest for a few days after the transfer.
- Prenatal Care: You will make routine visits to the fertility clinic (or your own OB) to receive regular blood tests and ultrasounds. You will continue to receive prenatal care as you would with any pregnancy.
