Surrogacy with egg donation & the partner’s sperm final stages in Ukraine, VittoriaVitta

Surrogacy with egg donation & the partner’s sperm final stages in Ukraine, VittoriaVitta

Surrogacy with egg donation and the partner’s sperm process is envisaged nearly in the same way as for surrogacy with own oocytes and the partner’s sperm. The major difference is in the number of arrivals: surrogacy with egg donation and the partner’s sperm involves two arrivals: the first arrival (1–2 days) for initiating the surrogacy program, and the second arrival (30–40 days) for completing the paperwork and taking the newborn (newborns) home. Surrogacy with own oocytes and sperm involves three arrivals: the first arrival (1–2 days) for initiating the surrogacy program, the second arrival (15–20 days) for empowering the COS protocol, oocyte retrieval, and embryo generation, and the third arrival (30–40 days) for completing the paperwork and taking the newborn (newborns) home. The stages of both surrogacy programs are nearly similar. The whole surrogacy cycle can be ‘split’ in 10 stages. Every stage is designed to give you control over your surrogacy cycle.
