The In Vitro Fertilization procedure
Medical tests of the recipient mother
First of all, the receiving mother must perform several medical tests to verify the state of her uterus and endometrium, confirming that there’s no fibroid polyps or any other alteration that stops the embryo implantation. At the same time, blood tests will be performed to see hormone levels that don’t stop the gestation.
Once it is decided which country you want to travel to, the clinic will give you information on the donors of both eggs and semen of the embryos. Even in some countries you can see pictures of the donors. The recipient couple or recipient woman will choose the embryo that wants to be transplanted.
Once chosen the embryos, the recipient mother will have to prepare her endometrium. That preparation starts the day after her period starts. It’s a treatment that requires an ultrasound control to see the thickness of the endometrium.
Once the optimal time has arrived, the embryo transfer will be performed, which is painless and doesn’t require any kind of anesthesia. In these cases, it won’t be necessary to stay more than two days at the destination.
