Re: In need of an advice

Hi, I’m not an expert, but you should take progesterone for luteal phase defect. Well, personally I think you are in a little bit of haste. Probably you are too concerned with your age, which you shouldn’t. Besides you are ready to go abroad, then you should consider going to Ukraine, there are no a...

Fees of an independent surrogate mother

I have decided to become an independent surrogate mother but am not sure about the fees that I should charge. A couple of my friends have been through this experience but both of them have been paid differently. I have contacted an agency but they are tight lipped in this regard. Please help.

Re: Failed IVF - What should I do?

I fully agree with 1. Get yourself thoroughly evaluated medically before taking a decision on whether to continue with IVF. Another point that needs to be considered is your hormone levels. These tests are expensive but necessary. If doctors have persisted with IVF repeatedly, I think that they trul...

We are looking for surrogacy but I believe that there are a lot of legal issues in the USA plus it is quite very expensive here....
