Surrogacy With Egg Donation Cost in Georgia

Surrogacy With Egg Donation Cost in Georgia

Egg donation Surrogacy?  how does it work!?

Egg donation is ideally configurable with gestational surrogacy. Egg donation surrogacy involves an egg donation protocol (Georgian egg donor or traveling egg donor undergoes controlled ovarian stimulation), IVF–ICSI/IMSI fertilization with the husband’s sperm, and embryo transfer to the Georgian Gestational Carrier’s uterus. 

Egg donation should be chosen if the intended mother has an extremely low (less than 0.5 ng/ml anti–Müllerian hormone concentration in the blood sample) or low (less than 1 ng/ml anti–Müllerian hormone concentration in the blood sample) ovarian reserve balance, faces issues with ovulation or does not ovulate (ovulation failure) or faces extreme female factor infertility that interferes with oocyte collection and oocytes’ ‘potency’ to be fertilized (low fertilization potency). The couple may also select surrogacy with egg donation package on demand if they are not sure that self–cycle surrogacy is okay for them.

Gestational surrogacy with egg donation involves the Georgian egg donor selection, Georgian gestational carrier’s selection, the husband’s sperm sample collection, IVF—ICSI fertilization, embryo culturing, embryo transfer Certificate issuing, embryo selection from the embryonic cohort, and top–quality embryo transfer into the gestational carrier’s uterus for further gestation. Surrogacy with egg donation doesn’t involve a traveling oocyte donor until it is required. Routinely, only the Georgian egg donor fee is included in the surrogacy with egg donation package. The selection of the Georgian egg donor is usually done by the couple from the egg donor’s database.

The traveling egg donor fee is charged as an extra fee if the couple wishes to select a traveling oocyte donor instead of the Georgian egg donor. The traveling egg donor fee involves additional expenses for the egg donor’s travel from the other country (booking the tickets, transfer from the airport and transfer back to the airport), and accommodation (staying in the hotel). These expenses are ‘integrable’ with the final traveling egg donor’s fee. The traveling egg donor is available on demand. The couple will select the traveling oocyte donor from the Georgian IVF clinic’s/Georgian Surrogacy Agency’s database. All egg donors (Georgian and traveling) have profiles with all essential information and photos.

Surrogacy with egg donation has the standard medical criteria both for the Georgian (traveling) egg donor and for the intended father.

What inclusion criteria are set for the egg donor?

  • age between 18 and 30 years old.
  • the genomic profile without viral diseases, transmitted diseases or genetically transmitted diseases.
  • high or normal levels of anti–Müllerian hormone concentrations in the blood samples. High anti–Müllerian hormone concentrations are more than 4 ng/ml. Normal anti–Müllerian hormone concentrations are 1–4 ng/ml.
  • at least 8–10 antral follicles in the ovaries.


anti–Müllerian hormone concentrations validate the ovarian reserve’s balance. The higher concentrations of anti–Müllerian hormone are detected and ‘verified’; the more extensive ovarian reserve is. The more extensive ovarian reserve is, the better for the oocyte retrieval ‘event’. The extensive ovarian reserve is more sensitive to ovarian stimulation. The more oocytes are in the ovarian reserve left, and the more antral follicles are visible on the ultrasound, the better for the IVF as in every visible follicle the new oocyte with a high fertilization potency undergoes maturation. And the more oocytes are collected during the oocyte pick–up mini-invasive surgery, the better for embryo ‘generation’ ‘event’. The more extensive embryonic cohort is ‘generated’ through IVF–ICSI/IMSI, the more embryos can be selected for the embryo transfer (routinely one or two are transferred per one embryo transfer trial), and for vitrification to be used in the next cycles with frozen embryo transfer.

What criteria are set for the intended father’s sperm?

For the intended father, the inclusive criteria involve the semen sample’s normal ‘characteristics’, the sperm cells’ normal morphology ‘head-tail configuration’, and karyotype (the normal chromosomal configuration). The semen analysis results indicate if the intended father’s sperm can be used for IVF–ICSI/IMSI. If the semen analysis results are abnormal, the Georgian sperm donor can be selected from the sperm donors’ database by the couple. The Georgian sperm donor fee is not ‘integrated’ in the surrogacy with egg donation package, thus is charged additionally. For IVF–ICSI/IMSI the fertility Pros can use fresh sperm or frozen sperm after thawing technique. Fertilization with sperm is preferable by the embryologists.


Criteria for the intended father’s semen sample:

  • Normal semen volume: 1.5—5.0 milliliters (ml). The semen volume below 1.5 ml is considered a low semen volume. The semen volume above 5.0 ml is considered a high semen volume.
  • Normal sperm count (sperm concentration): 15—300 million sperm per milliliter of semen. The sperm count below 15 million sperm per milliliter of semen is considered as low. For IVF—ICSI the required minimum is usually set to 5 million sperm per milliliter.
  • Not less than 20% of morphologically normal sperm per ml. Morphologically normal sperm cells are shaped like streamlined tadpoles with long tails and normal-sized heads.
  • Normal sperm motility: 40% of sperm cells should be motile (or moving) per one ejaculate. The numbers below 40% are considered as low sperm motility. For IVF—ICSI the required minimum is 15% of motile sperm per semen sample.
  • Normal sperm karyotype (normal chromosomal configuration). Exclusion of the chromosomal abnormalities’ configuration in sperm cells is one of the major goals for fertility Pros. Karyotyping is performed to reduce the possible risk to transmit genetic abnormalities and genetic alterations (chromosomal abnormalities, including wrong chromosomal configuration that leads to the diseases and gene mutations) transmitted to the baby.

Molecular karyotyping is a screening tool that verifies the chromosomal configuration and detects the ‘wrong’ chromosomal ‘configuration’. It also validates the genome profile and its content detecting the gene mutations. Molecular karyotyping doesn’t disrupt the genomic ‘configuration’ of sperm cells allowing the fertility Pro to use the sperm cells for ICSI (intracytoplasmic sperm injection) or IMSI (intracytoplasmic morphologically selected sperm microinjection). Comparatively to the other invasive techniques that are used for screening the sperm cells’ genomic configuration, molecular karyotyping has the ultra-powerful ‘detecting mode’ ‘configurable’ with ‘protective mode’. As a result, the sperm cells’ content is secured from disruption and can be used for ICSI or IMSI fertilization technique.

Legal restrictions for the couples wishing to do surrogacy in Georgia.

Only married heterosexual couples (man + woman) can do surrogacy in Georgia. The marriage certificate is essential to take with you when traveling to Georgian’s IVF clinic/Surrogacy Agency. Georgian law prohibits surrogacy for single men and single women, for gay couples and lesbian couples.

Answering four most frequently asked questions (FAQ) about surrogacy in Georgia. 

(1) ‘When purchasing the surrogacy with egg donation package should I pay all fee at once after signing the surrogacy contract or can I pay for everything step–by–step?’

Purchasing the surrogacy with egg donation package in Georgia, you can do the money–transfer step–by–step. Usually, there are three or four money–transfers that are done in the established by the surrogacy contract time frame. The first payment is usually done upon signing the surrogacy contract (surrogacy agreement). The other payments follow the first payment during the whole pregnancy time frame (the second money–transfer is done after the pregnancy confirmation, the third is done during the last weeks of the Gestational Carrier and can include the final compensation of the Georgian Gestational Carrier if there is no fourth payment).

  • The first payment is done upon signing of the surrogacy contract.
  • The second payment is done after the pregnancy’s confirmation.
  • The third payment is done on week 28 or 32 of pregnancy.
  • The fourth payment is done after the baby has been born.

Booking the ward for 4 or 5 days will cost approximately 1 000 USD — 1 600 USD.
  • If the term newborn has been born, the extra fees that are not included in the basic surrogacy package are paid for the preterm newborn staying in the NICU (newborn intensive care unit). The basic fee for one–night stay in the newborn intensive care unit starts at 350 USD — 400 USD.
  • Some Georgian IVF clinics and Surrogacy Agencies offer to ‘configure’ the NICU (newborn intensive care unit) bundle with the basic surrogacy package before the 12th week of the Gestational Carrier’s pregnancy at a cost 5 000 USD per newborn. This fee adds tons of capacity as it allows to ‘book’ the NICU incubator for the preterm newborn and the medication. NICU package secures the couple from extra fees and extra nerves.
  • The Gestational Carrier insurance fee in case if the newborn dies after the premature delivery or term delivery from the 20th gestational week to 40th gestational week covers the surrogate mother’s compensation. This fee also covers the dilation and curettage procedure if fertility Pro detects that the fetus contains genetic or developmental abnormalities. The Gestational Carrier insurance package is available for being purchased at 2 500 USD — 3 000 USD. The time frame for investing in this package is until 12 weeks of pregnancy.
