Becoming a parent happens in the normal course after a man and woman come together physically. While this is expected from married couples, many individuals have been trying to put marriage and child bearing on hold while they try to stabilize their careers.
Unfortunately, the biological clock keeps ticking no matter what and the couple may find themselves unable to conceive when they think the time is opportune.
Fertility doctors advise their patients about the advantages of conceiving and giving birth to a healthy child well within 30 years of age.
While this is more important for the female partner because the quality as well as the number of healthy eggs keep decreasing with every menstrual cycle, the male counterpart may be rendered incapable of becoming a father due to faulty sperms either in structure, number or motility. That does not mean all is lost though.
Medical science has advanced to a great degree with many top celebs both in Hollywood and India opting for assisted reproductive techniques.
In vitro fertilization is a process that has been endorsed by the doctors as well as patients for long with the success rate being fairly high. This procedure involves retrieving healthy eggs from the patient and mixing it with her partner’s sperm within controlled conditions of a laboratory.
The resultant embryo that develops is tested for genetic anomalies and only the healthy embryo or a blastocyst (developed a little later) is transferred into the uterus of the patient.
The IVF cycle becomes successful once the embryo implants to the uterine lining and begins to grow normally mimicking the natural progression of pregnancy. The fertility doctors monitor their patient regularly until the patient is ready to give birth. The delivery takes place via C-section usually and the couple is happy to take their child home after a few days.
Surrogacy is yet another procedure that has been gaining ground of late. It may or may not involve IVF, however. Traditional surrogacy occurs when the surrogate mother is willing to be artificially inseminated with healthy sperm from the male patient.
Pregnancy occurs in the due course and the baby is delivered by the third party who hands it over to the couple opting for surrogacy.
Gestational surrogacy is more popular at the moment where fertilization takes place outside the body following the IVF procedure.
The healthy embryo is transferred to the body of the surrogate instead of the female patient who may be incapable of conceiving and carrying the child medically or due to other reasons.
The surrogate donor is selected carefully by the surrogacy center and matched with the patient before the procedure is carried out.
India has seen a revolution of sorts by passing the Surrogacy Bill of 2019 that aims to regulate the process.
You would be amazed to know that many of the top celeb of Bollywood are now proud parents thanks to surrogacy. The names that come to mind immediately include the following:-
