Considering Assisted Reproduction?

"Assisted reproduction is a complex, emotional and costly journey but well worth the end result. The exact steps really depend on what your particular situation is."

Some helpful practical and legal tips

Assisted reproduction is a complex, emotional and costly journey but well worth the end result.
The process is a confusing one and the exact steps really depend on what your particular situation is. For example, the steps for a husband and a wife who want to use their own genetic material may differ from intended parents who want to obtain an egg and/or sperm from a different party.
Generally speaking, this process involves selection of an agency, picking an IVF & Fertility clinic, selection of an egg donor, selection of a surrogate mother, IVF treatment, fertilizing of an eggs, implanting an embryo in a surrogate mother, and finally, after spending up some budget, the birth of the child. This short description makes it sound much easier than it is, but rest assured that emotions run high during each step and all along the way you are required to make difficult decisions and draft and negotiate complicated arrangements between various parties.
Gestational surrogacy, as in the above-described example, will usually cost over $125,000 in the U.S., so some couples consider gestational surrogacy in other countries. Many of them consider Ukraine where the cost of gestational surrogacy (including IVF treatment) is approximately $35,000 - $45,000.
Initially we considered Ukraine and spent a great deal of time speaking with and working with several leading IVF & Fertility clinics in Ukraine in regards of IVF treatment. As a result, we realize our IVF treatment programmes in Ukraine based on TOP IVF & Fertility clinics in the country. Still have questions? Contact us today and let us help you with your needs.

Third-party reproduction

The phrase “third-party reproduction” refers to the use of eggs, sperm, or embryos that have been donated by a third party (donor) to enable an infertile individual or couple (intended recipient) to become happy parents. In Ukraine, donors must be anonymous by law to the intended recipient. Third-party reproduction also includes gestational surrogate mother arrangement. Gestational surrogacy refers to an IVF treatment in which embryos created by the intended parents are transferred into the surrogate mother’s uterus, which has been prepared hormonally to carry a pregnancy. The gestational surrogate mother has no genetic link to the fetus she is carrying. Despite the requirement for IVF treatment to create embryos, the utilization of a gestational surrogacy, legally speaking, is a low-risk procedure and is the only one approach conducted in Ukraine.

Third-party reproduction is a complex process requiring consideration of social, ethical, and legal issues. The increased use of egg donation has required a reconsideration of the social and ethical impact this technology has had on intended parents, their offspring, and the egg donors themselves. Although IVF treatment and gestational surrogacy has been acknowledged widely within the reproductive medicine community, it nevertheless remains controversial and is subject to both legal and psychosocial scrutiny.

The options available through third-party reproduction provide many couples the opportunity to make their dream of parenthood a reality. The comprehensive nature of the screening and counseling of intended parents and their donors or surrogate mothers ensures that the IVF treatment meets the needs of all involved. Finally, as third-party reproduction is more widely used, there continues to be a broader understanding of the ethical, moral, and legal issues involved. The ultimate goal of physicians, MHPs and attorneys specializing in reproductive law is to enable the IVF treatment to move forward as smoothly as possible and bring joy and satisfaction to all parties involved in ensuring the conception and delivery of a healthy child.

    Initial Care

    IVF treatment helps infertile couples achieve pregnancy. During the IVF treatment, eggs are removed from the ovaries, fertilized with sperm in the lab and allowed to grow before being inserted back in the woman’s uterus. IVF treatment is used when medical conditions prevent the sperm from reaching the egg due to blocked or damaged fallopian tubes, or if a man has low sperm quantity or quality, which reduces the chance of fertilization. Within the “Initial Care“ programme, one cycle will be covered, though multiple cycles may be necessary.
