On the day of embryo transfer, preferably the intended parents should be present with the surrogate for the big day, as it will spark emotional support and will make the embryo surrogacy embryo transfer process memorable.
The surrogacy embryo transfer itself is a relatively quick and effective infertility treatment procedure, this process will likely be handled by an agreed-upon international surrogacy agency.
When the surrogacy embryo transfer procedure begins, you can expect your surrogate to through the following things:
- In the doctor’s office, a surrogate will be positioned in a similar way as during a gynaecological evaluation.
- Before the procedure begins, the doctor will guide both parties and address all your concerns.
- An ultrasound will be done simultaneously so that the surrogate uterus can be seen.
- With the guidance of the ultrasound images, the surrogacy doctor will now insert a prep catheter into the surrogate uterus. The embryo is delivered through another catheter called the smaller catheter. This is inserted through the prep catheter and the embryo is delivered in the uterine cavity.
- A final examination will be done to ensure that the embryo transfer has been successful.
