I can understand your feeling very well. Because I went through this problem. Infertility is not a problem today. As there are many solutions for this. I was infertile. I was infertile due to hysterectomy cancer. So I decided to go for surrogacy. It was a success for us. We had our twin daughters from surrogacy. It is a very good infertility treatment for infertile couples.
From an international perspective, surrogacy is illegal in most countries around the globe. And, in those where it is permitted, the surrogate and the biological mother cannot be the same person. In fact, in those countries where the law does not include this as a pre-requisite, the trend is to avoid traditional surrogacy arrangements to avoid potential legal issues.The intended parents will keep the baby following birth, as stated in the surrogacy agreement that they signed with the gestational carrier, in which the surrogate agreed to deliver a baby for them, thereby waiving all maternity rights to the child. Obviously, choosing one surrogacy type over the other will affect the total cost of the treatment. For example, commercial surrogacy, along with a need for using donor eggs and/or sperm, would shoot up the price. Also, one should keep in mind that the cost can vary depending on the country chosen, depending on the characteristics and the legal requirements of each destination.
The main reasons why they opt for surrogacy:
Women without uterus, either for congenital reasons (Rokitansky Syndrome) or acquired causes (hysterectomy)
Serious uterine conditions such as severe endometriosis, incurable Asherman’s syndrome, severe adenomyosis etc.
Uterine anomalies leading to adverse pregnancy outcomes
When other fertility treatments have failed, including IVF, IVF with ICSI, or PGD.
Recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL)
Medical contra-indication. Certain existing health conditions can be aggravated with pregnancy or even lead to death if the patient becomes pregnant. Autoimmune diseases, cardiovascular diseases (CVD), and some types of cancer are common examples.
Medication use. If you are using prescription drugs that are incompatible with pregnancy or can have a teratogenic effect (i.e. may cause birth defects in a developing fetus), you should stop taking them to become pregnant. Unfortunately, this is not possible in all cases.
Contrary to common belief, most babies born via surrogacy are children of straight couples who have no alternative but to use a gestational surrogate to start a family, due to medical conditions.
