Surrogacy for HIV Intended Parents
New Life Georgia cannot accept the parents who are positive for HIV virus, however as we have connections to the world class clinics all over the world we can inform the parents that HIV positive parents can be accepted for surrogacy in Mexico. The procedure is very straightforward. Intended parent should send by email 6 months lab tests showing undetectable viral load in serum. In case the viral load is high, we cannot accept until at least three months treatment is done. After special treatment viral load will become satisfactory to be approved for the program.
After approval of the viral load in the test, parent can visit the clinic, where repeated test will be performed. If the results match the ones sent to us earlier, parent is allowed to leave semen to start sperm washing.
In Mexico, sperm wash takes place in local IVF clinic. However, from Mexico the samples of washed sperm are sent to the US clinic for double assurance and US clinic approves that in the provided sample indeed there was not HIV virus detected. Getting the results from the US clinic may take between 2-3 weeks. Program preparations can be started while waiting for the results. The possibility of virus transmission with molecular based washed sperm is practically zero and there have been no evidence that virus was transmitted neither to the carrier mother nor to the baby.
The programs (with sperm washing) to HIV-positive intended parents include:
- Surrogacy only
- Surrogacy + Egg Donation
- IVF for HIV negative partner + Egg Donation
- Surrogacy with frozen embryos
Please, be informed that the surrogacy package fees for HIV-positive patients differ from standard ones, as the procedure is performed in specially equipped and highly-skilled facility to manage HIV-positive patients.
