Surrogacy or IVF: which is better?

Surrogacy and in vitro fertilization (IVF) are two options that couples and individuals can consider when they want to start a family but are facing infertility challenges. Both methods have their own benefits and drawbacks, and the decision between surrogacy and IVF will depend on the individual's specific circumstances.

How does surrogacy work?

Surrogacy is a process where a woman carries and delivers a baby for another person or couple. There are two types of surrogacy: traditional surrogacy, where the surrogate mother is also the biological mother of the baby, and gestational surrogacy, where the surrogate mother carries an embryo created using the intended parents' egg and sperm or donated egg and/or sperm. Surrogacy can be a viable option for couples and individuals who have a history of infertility, have had multiple failed IVF cycles, have a genetic disorder, or have a medical condition that makes pregnancy and childbirth risky.

One of the main benefits of surrogacy is that the intended parents are genetically related to the baby, which can be important for some couples and individuals. In traditional surrogacy, the surrogate mother uses her own egg, which means that the baby is biologically related to her. In gestational surrogacy, the baby is genetically related to the intended parents. Additionally, surrogacy allows the intended parents to be more involved in the pregnancy and birth process, which can be a positive experience for many couples and individuals.

On the other hand, surrogacy can be an expensive and emotionally taxing process. The cost of surrogacy can vary greatly depending on the type of surrogacy, the location, and the agency used. The process can also be emotionally taxing for the surrogate mother, as well as the intended parents. Additionally, there are legal and ethical considerations that need to be taken into account, as surrogacy laws vary from state to state and country to country.

How does IVF work?

IVF is a medical procedure where an egg is fertilized with sperm outside of the body and then transferred to her uterus. IVF can be a viable option for couples and individuals who have a history of infertility, have blocked or damaged fallopian tubes, have a genetic disorder, or have a medical condition that makes pregnancy difficult, yet can safely carry a child.

One of the main benefits of IVF is that it has a relatively high success rate, with the national average live birth rate for IVF being around 42% per cycle. Additionally, IVF allows couples and individuals to have more control over the timing of their pregnancy and the number of embryos transferred. IVF can also be less expensive than surrogacy, depending on the location and clinic used.

However, IVF also has its drawbacks. The process can be emotionally taxing and time-consuming, with multiple rounds of treatment often needed before a successful pregnancy is achieved. Additionally, IVF can be expensive, and insurance coverage varies widely. Furthermore, there is a risk of multiple pregnancies, which can be dangerous for both the mother and the babies.

What to choose?

In conclusion, both surrogacy and IVF are viable options for couples and individuals who are facing infertility challenges. The decision between surrogacy and IVF will depend on the individual's specific circumstances, such as the cause of infertility, medical history, and personal preferences. It's important to consult with a specialist to determine the best course of action for your individual needs. Both surrogacy and IVF can be stressful and emotional journey, but with the right information and support, they can also be a path to starting a family.

Under Ukrainian law, surrogacy is a legal affordable option for traditionally married couples to have children using their own embryos, or with either an egg or sperm donor. There must be a medical reason you can’t carry a child. You are also able to participate if you have had 4 unsuccessful IVF attempts.
