How the procedure is developed
Regardless of whether the woman's cells are used for normal IVF or for surrogate pregnancy, the donor will be subjected to a two-week hormonal stimulation. As a result, the number of ovules will be greater than usual. Then, under general or local anesthesia, the donor will be given a puncture in the follicles, which will last up to twenty minutes. After this, the egg donor will be under medical supervision for 2-3 hours.
Regarding the legal aspect, an indispensable requirement to participate in the surrogate pregnancy process and be chosen as surrogate or donor of ovules is the absence of criminal records, legal irregularities, etc.
The spouse's or partner's opinion is also important. If the marriage status of the woman is legal or civil, then the procedure requires her husband's written agreement. In case of refusal, the woman will not be able to participate in the program.
