Surrogacy

This post is essentially about my experience with surrogacy. If this interests you, or if youre looking for resources to research it yourself, please go through it. I was diagnosed with PCOS in my teenage years and so it wasnt shocking to me when I failed to have kids with my husband years later. We were prepared for failure but not to the level that was in store for us. I initially went into hormone therapy and that was a complete failure. I was disappointed but not disheartened. After failing with my consequetive IVF attempts, however, I was devastated. My husband was there for me, but unfortuantely that wasnt enough for me to recover mentally. I had to go into therapy and that slowly but surely got me back into a healthy headspace. All the while, my loving husband continued the search for other options that would prove viable for us and right around the time I had recovered from the trauma, he presented me with the option of surrogacy. It was the perfect chance for me to test out the fruits of my recovery. And it worked out better than I couldve hoped for. I now have a beautiful baby boy and honestly, I am glad i have someone like my husband. Without him I wouldve never imagined to be this happy. I hope you guys find your happiness as well. Cheers!

    I am happy that you moved on. you chose an option which was viable for you. there are many couples who keep on repenting. I think it was a great step. At the same time, you put an inspiration for others. Surrogacy is not a simple decision. There are many setbacks in this journey too. Thinking about a clinic which can provide good services is again a tough job. You are lucky that your husband is supportive. I think you should tell more about your story. From which clinic you got the treatment. All the expenses of the clinic. You should also tell about the possible failures in this treatment. I wish you the very best in your life ahead.

    Hi there. Hope you're doing fine. I am so proud of you. I am happy to hear that your surrogacy went successfully. It's a blessing to have such a supportive husband. I myself had a baby through surrogacy and I've never been happier. It's the most beautiful feeling ever. There was a time when I thought I wouldn't ever get to feel it. But thankfully everything worked out. Best of luck for the future.

    Hi Christine
    Your story is quite touching but gives hope. To start with, let me begin by empathizing with you because of your condition. I know PCOS can for sure make it hard for ladies to conceive. They result in unpredictable ovulation making the infertility issue much more complex. At times, PCOS result in anovulation. Implying that a lady may stop ovulating all together. When it happens like this, it reduces chances of conceiving and giving birth. However, I know of a few women with PCOS who were put on pills and have conceived and given birth to babies. I think you are simply unfortunate that regardless of being put on medication you have not conceived. I think your case could be that of unexplained infertility or something. Either way, I am happy that you thought about surrogacy and you have managed to get a baby. Now for the sake of other readers who may not know the procedure involved, I will explain what surrogacy is. Note that surrogacy is a little bit complex but it can help one become a happy mother. It starts at the point at which you approach a clinic and explain to them the nature of your problem. If it is true that you cannot carry pregnancy either due to health reasons or any other reason, you will be considered for surrogacy. The clinic will help find a matching surrogate mother and some eggs will be retrieved from your ovaries. They will then be fertilized in the lab and transferred in the womb of the surrogate mother. She will carry and deliver the baby and give it to you.

    I think i should also share my experience about surrogacy for someone seeking for it.
    I was infertile due to cancer and i was unable to have a baby.
    Later we found about surrogacy.We moved from Japan to Europe for surrogacy.
    With the help of internet in Europe we came to know about BioTexCom.
    We than moved to Ukraine.We finally went through surrogacy.Soon we will have to beautiful daughters via Surrogacy.
    Surrogacy is very good you people should also research about it i guess.

    Hey, Christane. I'm so sorry to hear that you went through so much pain. I understand that it was not easy for you. You have faced a lot of difficulties. But at the same times, I'm so happy for you. You proved to be a strong lady. You did not give up and kept trying. You're so lucky that your husband supported you. He's a great guy, tbh. People who are facing infertility need to read your posts. It'll give them the motivation to keep trying for themselves. I'm also planning to go for surrogacy. I'll be thankful if you could share your surrogacy details with me. Which clinic did you go to? How reasonable was it? Did they treat you well? Any help would be appreciated.

    Hello Christane. This post makes me really happy for you. I also visited the same clinic, probably. People have been raving about them everywhere. I feel really delighted that your dream came true. Hopefully, something similar is in store for me. Thank you for sharing this. Good day to you!

    Hello there! I hope you and your husband are doing fine. It is really brave of you to share your story. I too have been in your shoes. I got married in 2009. Since then I have had two MCs. There was a time when I had lost all hope. I longed for a baby. My husband and I started exploring other options. We then got to know about surrogacy. We were also told about the clinic you just mentioned. We were reluctant in the beginning. Nevertheless, we took our chances. Now im blessed with a baby boy. Infertility is so common these days but people do nothing about it. I wish you best of luck for your future. Take care. Cheers!

    "Hi christane!I hope you and your DH would be great.
    Good to see that you are now living the life the way you wanted to live. So happy to see
    that you went through a successful surrogacy. People who can't have a child naturally should look
    for surrogacy."

    "Hi dear! very happy to know about your experience with the surrogacy.
    I don't know why it is such a taboo in some countries. women who have problem in
    giving birth to a child from their own womb should pursue surrogacy. Some Europeans
    countries have better clinics than any other countries. people who are in need must visit
    them as I know many people going there.

    Glad to see you recovering from the initial setback. Really happy to see a supportive husband in the midst of all that chaos. I'm sure you cherish him as much as you should. I actually experienced something similar. We've been TTC for seven years. After my fourth miscarriage, my doctor and husband both decided it would be stupid to try again. The lining wall of my uterus is really thin. This forced me to consider alternative options. We decided on surrogacy. Surrogacy is a huge blessing. We've had our initial check-ups and registration process is underway. I hope I get to have a similar story to share soon as well. These kinds of posts make me really happy. Thank you for sharing your story. Cheers.
