Different Types of Surrogacy Cycle
Self Egg Cycle
The egg of the intended mother are fertilized with the intended father’s sperm and the resulting embryos are transferred in the uterus of the surrogate.
Egg Donation Cycle
Donor eggs are retrieved and fertilized with the intended father’s sperm and the embryos are transferred to surrogate mother.
Frozen Embryos Cycle
Egg retrieved from the donor or intended mother are frozen earlier and later fertilized with the sperm of male partner to form embryos. These embryos are then transferred to the surrogate mother.
Embryos donated by other couples can be adopted for self transfer only. In India, embryos adoption cannot be done to the surrogate mother.
