Friend needs advice

A friend is facing difficulties in TTC. I recommended she go for IVF or surrogacy. She's open to both options but she can't narrow down to one. IVF is great in that she can conceive herself. But there are many cases where it isn't successful. Or it is very time-taking. Surrogacy, on the other hand, can also be a little time taking, but at least it's a sure shot. The down with that is she can't conceive by herself. What should she do? Should she go through the trouble and wait of IVF. Or should she resort to surrogacy? I'm more inclined towards surrogacy since it's lesser stress. I may be biased though since I myself went for it. Can you suggest her?

    I have read many disappointed comments about the clinics which are offering surrogacy and IVF. But, I have experienced a clinic from eastern Europe and they are serving with the best facilities. I am so much glad to inform you that they are coming to our city very soon. I suggest you register yourself online on their website and meet with their team. I bet that you will feel good after meeting them. Because they will change your mind and life. I have also tried many clinics before consulting this one and I found this clinic the best. Hope you will get success and everything will be fine soon. Stay healthy. Keep posting to me.

    I think she should go for the one which has higher chances of success. Surrogacy is always better than IVF in my perspective. It's a lot less stressful and safer. IVF is about luck as when it starts you are not really sure if the eggs will fertilize or not. Whereas surrogacy is a guaranteed success. Find a right clinic and undergo the treatment.

    Hey! I m really feeling a big grief for your friend. It is very hard to time to bear in life. When you are infertile it is harder to listen in the life. I can understand what she really feels. As for as, the IVF is the concern. My friend went for this treatment and on the third cycle, she got Succesful and have a baby now. I many times heard about the IVF positive results. But as your friends are considering surrogacy. She should go for it. There is more success to have an own child. Surrogacy is really a helper method to the couples, getting fail in TTC. She should consult a good doctor. And go for it. I wish and hope for the best anyway. Looking forward to the positive post.

    Leslie one thing is clear the choice between IVF and surrogacy is surely tough. What I believe is that if she chooses a well-reputed clinic, which has high success rates, then IVF is a better option. If you think she can't handle the stress of carrying a baby, then she should go for Surrogacy. Surrogacy is a beautiful invention. Also, IVF is surely a painful process. I hope he makes a wise decision. I wish her Luck!

    Well, I would suggest surrogacy is better than IVF. IVF is a painful procedure and we can't even predict whether it will be successful in the first attempt or not. But surrogacy will surely give her 100% results. And the most important thing is to ask her to be very wise when choosing a clinic because the clinic matters a lot for such treatments. There are some scams these days as well. Be aware of them.

    Hey Leslie, I'm glad to see your concern about your friend. A friend in need is a friend indeed. Hope she is doing good now. If she can carry a baby then she can go for IVF. I have heard many success stories of IVF but at the same time, there are many people who had failed IVF several times. So. there are certain circumstances that vary from person to person. It can also lead to abortion and trust me nothing could be worse than that. Suggest her to go for surrogacy as it has a high success rate. It is an easy procedure as compared to IVF. She should consult clinics in Europe. My sister is also having her surrogacy. She has completed her two cycles and looking forward to successful results. One of the most important things is having a trustworthy surrogate. Hope she will be blessed with her baby soon. I will pray for her.

    Well frankly speaking you should take advice only from a medical specialist. I don't think you should keep both the options open. Why think negatively before you could get a proper diagnosis. God knows she might conceive her own baby with Ivf method. One should know that there are legal issues involved in surrogacy. It is a hectic procedure. Also that you will have to wait for months to get your baby. You need to get a surrogate only from a reliable agency. Believe me we have been through this phase. I was pretty confused. But realised that we need to trust the doctors. Look for reputable hospitals that perform IVF surgery. They should have a good success rate with IVF transfers. I hope this will help. Best of luck.

    Hey Leslie! it's good that you asked for suggestions before making a bad decision.You can operate for either surrogacy or IVF if you have been trying to conceive for more than a year without any results. The question is which one of them is better ? well, there are pieces you must keep in mind before making a decision. Going for surrogacy the woman partner is incapable to carry the child, a desire that is now in most women. IVF involves the fertilization of a woman's eggs by the sperm of the proposed father in a lab dish. This is an option for couples who need to have a baby on their own. Chances of a victorious pregnancy are usually higher with surrogacy rather than to IVF. Even though the rate of pregnancy is higher than the IVF, there are uncertainties included in it. The genes of the surrogate mother can change the growth of the unborn baby hence, a surrogate mother has to be chosen with utmost care. As for risks associated with IVF, ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome just like swollen and painful ovaries, ectopic fertility and stress can take place if IVF is operated for. Based on these factors, you can make the choice of a method that is best suited for you. Having a child is a great blessing from God Tell her to take a step and God will be with her. My best wishes are with her and good luck. :)
