Katie Lee and Ryan Biegel After Struggling with Infertility

It is great when people in the spotlight speak out about their infertility. Although it is still spoken of too little and I believe too late – only after success. I think this gives the impression that you are somehow still “less than” if you are unable to overcome infertility.

Ukrainian Surrogacy: TE Quality in Blastocysts is a Strong Predictor of Live Birth Success

To select the best blastocyst for transfer, three morphological parameters have routinely been used, i.e. 1. The degree of cells expansion, 2. the appearance of both outer part of the cell mass - the trophectoderm (TE) and 3. the inner cell mass (ICM). Although it has been shown that blastocysts with highest scores for all three parameters achieve highest implantation rates, their independent ability to predict pregnancy outcome remains unclear.

Intended Mother Age and Ukrainian Surrogacy: After 35 Years of Age Fertility Decreases Every Month

There is generally not much of a drop-off in a woman's ability to have a baby after IVF between the ages of 26 and 35. After 35, this starts to fall quite dramatically, so every month counts. During the lockdown, across all ages of women, the two months with no access to hospitals for IVF treatment meant that women in the UK had a 0.5% lower chance of giving birth, compared to their usual chances. For instance, a woman who is aged 41-42 has a 12% chance of giving birth at her age.

Why Frozen Embryo Transfers are overtaking Fresh Embryo Transfers?

According to a recent report from the HFEA features a pattern towards Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) enlistments across the globe. It states that frozen embryo transfer has been increasingly seen as a mainstream embryo transfer protocol. HFEA measurements depict that fresh embryo transfers dropped by 11 percent somewhere in the range of 2013 to 2018. On the other hand, frozen embryo transfers nearly multiplied, representing 38% of all In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) cycles in 2018.

Fertility Treatment is Does Not Put Women at Risk of Ovarian Cancer – But it is Complicated

Women who have received fertility treatment are not at increased risk of ovarian cancer, according to a new study. A team of researchers from multiple institutes in the Netherlands investigated a group of around 40,000 women with fertility problems, of which around 30,000 had at least one IVF cycle between 1983-2000. They found no increased risk of ovarian cancer compared to those who had not.

Why Frozen Embryo Transfers Are Overtaking Fresh Embryo Transfers In Ukrainian Surrogacy? Increased Delivery Rates And Reduced Risks!

An increment in the acceptance of ART has been seen in recent years. The casual adoption of frozen embryo transfers has been aided part by the more generally acknowledged meaning of 'success' in ART: sound singleton delivery that follows serial transfer of embryos procured in sole stimulation cycle. Be that, as adoptions may have expanded the evident absence of enlistment data between pregnancy rates per oocyte pick-up and per embryo transfer.

I Just Wanted a Baby, But Surrogacy Gave Me So Much More

When I started telling people I was having a baby with a gestational surrogate, the responses ranged from awkwardly supportive to just awkward. A woman at a party congratulated me, praised me for being so clever, so ahead of the times. “Ugh, you’re brilliant,” she told me. I’d have someone else do the dirty work of motherhood for me. Genius.

Baby Born from Egg that Was Matured and Frozen in the Lab

A34-year-old woman has given birth thanks to a new fertility procedure that involved collecting, maturing, and freezing some of her eggs five years earlier. Although lab-based maturation of eggs has been done before, the case study, published yesterday (February 18) in Annals of Oncology, represents the first successful pregnancy from immature eggs that were frozen after they were matured.

Michelle Buteau Says Her Husband Encouraged Surrogacy After She Was 'So Unhappy' Following IVF

Metric of Success for Ukrainian Surrogacy #3

The final metric is the number of supernumerary embryos cryopreserved during the cycle. This speaks to the efficiency of the process by providing an estimate of potential benefits which may come from an additional transfer should the first one be unsuccessful or even to allow the couple to pursue an additional child without another full ART cycle.

Most Important Measure of Ukrainian Surrogacy Success #2

The second and most important metric is sustained implantation rate: the probability that any transferred embryo will implant and progress to delivery. In the event of a single-embryo transfer, the metric is identical to delivery rate per transfer. By calculating per embryo, it provides a summary of the quality of outcomes within the program without the obscuring effect of multiple-embryo transfer.

Simple Metrics to Measure Success in Ukrainian Surrogacy #1

Describing clinical outcomes from assisted reproduction technology (ART) treatment cycles has been an evolving challenge throughout the world. The first metric is the probability of having no embryos available to transfer. This metric incorporates all causes of failure from initiation of the treatment cycle up to the point immediately before actual embryo transfer. Patients will know what the risk is of failing, whether it is due to poor follicular stimulation, failed fertilization, poor embryo development, or abnormal preimplantation genetic testing for aneuploidy (PGT-A) results.

Gender Bias with Infertility

Even on Facebook, fertility is highly gendered. Participation in women’s support groups can number in the tens of thousands while men’s groups have less than 1,700. In the absence of a health care model that draws men in, forums and online resources are a key source of solace and information.

DNA Fragmentation testing may cause miscarriages

There are clear indications, for example, that damage to the sperm’s DNA called DNA fragmentation underlies recurrent miscarriages and other fertility problems. But the American Society for Reproductive Medicine does not advise routine testing because medical treatments do not yet exist. Since surrogacy couples usually have underlying infertility issues, health issues and are of an older age, we at Delivering Dreams always recommend a Sperm Fragmentation test to improve knowledge and treatment success.

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.
