Having a family is an experience that many people cherish and look forward to. But for those living with HIV, it can seem like a distant possibility at first sight. Thankfully, the advancements in medical care have drastically reduced or even eliminated the risk of HIV transmission to infants. With advancements in reproductive technologies more people living with HIV can now experience parenthood and create meaningful, loving relationships with the children they raise.
In this article, we’ll take a look at how surrogacy programs offering services such as IVF, sperm washing, and egg donation can help in creating a safe environment for both the intended parents and their surrogate. At our clinic, we offer these services in addition to traditional surrogacy programs in an effort to give as many people as possible a chance at parenthood. We wholeheartedly believe that everyone should have the chance to experience parenthood, and we use all of our knowledge and resources in order to ensure each patient has a positive outcome. At our surrogacy agency, we are committed to providing HIV positive individuals with the same kind of access to help and medical care as anybody else.
What is IVF?
In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) involves the mixing of a woman’s eggs and male sperm under an artificial condition in a laboratory and then transferring resulted embryos to a woman’s uterus. IVF (In-Vitro Fertilization) technology can be used for surrogacy in cases of HIV patients who cannot carry a baby to term. This revolutionary medical advancement is a powerful tool for HIV patients looking to build a family and live their dreams of parenthood. With IVF, HIV patients can experience the joy of having a child without worrying about passing on the virus or endangering anyone’s health.
What is Sperm Purification?
Sperm purification is a process used to separate sperm from other bodily fluids or infectious agents such as HIV. The procedure takes place in an IVF lab, where the semen sample is mixed with a solution to separate the sperm from other fluids and molecules such as HIV-infected cells that can be present in semen. It involves isolating viable sperm cells from semen samples through centrifugation and careful analysis under a microscope. Analysis results of the purified sperm are carefully evaluated, and if no virus is detected, the isolated sperm cells are then washed using solutions that remove any potential contaminants or infectious agents, leaving only healthy and viable sperm behind. This helps to reduce significantly, if not completely eliminate, any potential risk of spreading HIV. The procedures have been designed to maximize safety and ensure successful outcomes. This technique has been successfully used in fertility treatments since the late 1980s and is considered safe and effective.
What is Egg Donation?
Egg donation is another service we offer at our surrogacy program. It involves retrieving healthy eggs from a donor—such as an anonymous donor or a friend or relative—and transferring them into the uterus of the surrogate mother for successful pregnancy. Egg donation refers to when healthy donor eggs are fertilized with either partner’s sperm or donator sperm to produce an embryo for transfer into the intended mother’s uterus. Donor eggs are preferable in cases when it may be difficult for a woman living with HIV to conceive due to medical reasons. This technique has been successfully used in fertility treatments since the early 1980s and has helped countless couples who have been unable to conceive due to infertility issues or other medical conditions such as HIV start families of their own.
Is it possible to surrogate mother contract HIV?
The transmission of HIV from an HIV-positive intended parent to a surrogate mother is physically possible; however, the risk is very low and the instances of successful and healthy surrogacy pregnancies associated with HIV-positive parents are numerous. It is generally safe for both parent and child within this context.
