Options and Choices after Fertility Treatment
If you have decided to end your fertility treatments, you still have a variety of options that can help you to fulfill your life goals. If you have not gotten pregnant from fertility treatments, try not to regard this as a failure. Instead, realize that it has allowed you the freedom to pursue other exciting options with which to build or strengthen your family.
As a couple, you may wish to discuss these options and investigate them further. Remember - there is no one option that is better than another. Instead, the best option is what you feel is most right for you.
SurrogacySurrogacy is rapidly becoming a popular alternative for couples that are unable to conceive their own, biological child. Surrogacy involves asking another woman to carry your baby in her uterus until he is born. Egg and sperm is retrieved from you or received by donation. The egg is then fertilized with the sperm and implanted in the surrogate mother’s uterus. You will be able to take your child home after birth.
There are many benefits to using a surrogate mother to help you conceive and carry a child to term. Surrogacy offers couples the chance to watch the growth and development of their child from conception through to birth. It also offers couples the chance to actively participate in all aspects of the pregnancy and to develop an intimate relationship with the surrogate mother.
Surrogacy can be a complicated procedure, though, and it is important that you investigate all legal aspects before you choose to pursue it. It can also be emotionally taxing, and is sometimes a difficult choice for couples to make.
