RIF described pregnancy

Who are the candidates for surrogacy?

Assisted reproductive technology has progressed over the past years. Despite the introduction of enhanced protocols for improving ovarian stimulation and culture techniques for embryo development - it is estimated that the live birth rate cycle ranges from 29.9% to 43.7% only.

What is repeated Implantation Failure?

Repeated implantation failure or RIF described pregnancy failure after two to six times with at least ten attempts of high-grade embryo transfer to the uterus. A variety of causes are linked to RIF including:

  • genetics,

  • autoimmune,

  • anatomical,

  • thrombotic and

  • endocrine abnormalities.

There are the factors responsible for RIF that has an important implication for the success of treatment. But, for many couples, even a perfect cause cannot be ruled-out.

For successful implantation, it requires:

  • good embryo,

  • receptive endometrium,

  • and synchronisation between the embryo and endometrium.

Why Consider Surrogacy?

Regardless of the differences in opinions in views of different cultures, religions and governments, those afflicted are with:

  • repeated implantation failure,

  • recurrent miscarriages and

  • uterine anomalies, or

  • people in the same-sex union may view surrogacy as the only solution for them to build a family of their own.

In some cases, surrogacy is a good option to achieve pregnancy. This is true for patients having a history of Repeated Implantation Failure. Maternal age is an independent factor for the success of IVF. The failure of IVF can be due to the advanced age of the mother.

Age is a prognostic factor for the success of IVF in a patient with RIF and pregnancy rate is lower in women older than 39 years.

High Demand for Surrogacy

Couples who suffer from an incurable uterine disorder opt for surrogacy. Developing country like China, for example, is a home for 447 million women ages 16 to 60 years old. Approximately 2.7 million women have difficulty conceiving due to uterine factors.

Hence, more couples seek in vitro fertilisation.

Procreation is a basic right

It accepted that reproduction is a fundamental human right that should not be denied. For those who cannot conceive, surrogacy is a treatment option for people with a defective reproductive system.

But one cannot deny the fact, that surrogacy is not only a medical issue but a complex social problem related to ethics and law. In the surrogacy arrangements. The responsibilities and rights of surrogates and intended parents should be laid down beforehand.

Both parties should discuss the many issues of surrogacy such as:

  • injection procedures,

  • complications,

  • expenditures,

  • the risk of multiple births,

  • miscarriages,

  • the lifestyle of the surrogate mother if she smokes or drinks alcohol,

  • the involvement of the surrogate in the future life of the baby, caesarean section and so forth.

More so, psychological counselling should be provided in the entire process. In this condition, surrogacy procedure may be optimised for the service of those who want to have their child but unable to conceive despite aggressive medical therapy.

There are many reasons why a couple decided to use surrogate mother services. There is no need to mention them. Fortunately, we have such clinics as Surrogate Motherhood Center of professor Feskov which makes surrogacy really convenient.  It is always better to know that everything will be fine because the doctors are true professionals.

Discussing these things is not that easy for sure. This is all about asking people on CBD oil near me and then doing nothing that can hepl us to understand what is there that will give us more. I wish there some kind of remedy which gets taken.

Surrogacy can be beneficial for both surrogates and intended parents.

Nothing beats the joy of having a baby for someone who can't do it on their own. Intended parents get a sense of completeness when welcoming a new family member, but for a surrogate mother, which you can find at surrogacy worldcenterofbaby  it is a sense of pride that they gave their parents the bundle of joy they have been waiting for. Surrogate mothers are generally caring and compassionate women with a strong desire to help others in need.
