In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) Needed for Surrogacy

Surrogacy is an involved and complex process which includes In Vitro Fertilization (IVF).  In brief, IVF is a type of assistive reproductive technology that involves the gathering of mature egg(s) supplied by an egg donor, then fertilized in a lab by sperm from a sperm donor. The fertilized egg is then transferred to the uterus of the gestational carrier (GC) where she carries and delivers the baby. 

According to the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology, the live birth rate for each IVF cycle started ranges from 41 to 43 percent for women under age 37, and from 13 to 18 percent for women over 40*.  Therefore, I plan for two cycles of IVF transfers.   

·   Ave Single IVF cycle:       $12,000*
·   Additional IVF cycle:       $6,955**
·   Medication:                          $1,500 - $3,000**
·   Other costs:                          $4,234
·   Total Ask:                               $19,234** 


These costs vary depending on desired agency and based on the above figures the cost can actually be higher.  The average nationwide cost in the U.S. for a single IVF cycle is $12,000.

You can make a difference with a kind donation to assist me in offsetting the total cost for the surrogacy process.  Your kind donation of $50 will go towards legal and agency fees, the IVF transfer, medial and background screening, clothing and so much more.  Every donation is important and the need for this is life changing. Without donations like yours, intended parents like myself will have to go through life without experiencing fatherhood in my case; the joy of raising a child; the expense of sending them off the college and the reward of being a coach and mentor throughout their lives.  Help me experience all that life offers.

I would like to thank you in advance - from both of us (baby & I).  Achieving this goal means a lot to us; in fact, it means joy and happiness.  Your thoughtfulness and kindness will never go unnoticed and we will always be appreciated.

I am a real and genuine person and can be reached through the contact button or simply at 703-665-9250 or email at [email redacted]. 

Thank you in advance!
