How Long to Match with a Surrogate?

How Long to Match with a Surrogate?

When considering surrogacy, it’s essential to understand the timeline and set proper expectations. Surrogacy agencies in the United States often have wait times ranging from 24 to 36 months. However, at Kira Surrogacy in Mexico, our surrogates are pre-screened and insured, ensuring that we always have surrogates ready to be matched with intended parents.

The Surrogacy Process Timeline

Creating or Acquiring Embryos

    • IVF Requirements: Some intended parents will need to undergo IVF to create embryos. This process can add to the timeline.
    • Shipping Embryos: Shipping embryos from the United States typically takes about two weeks, while shipping within Mexico is faster, taking only 1-3 days.
  • Matching with a Surrogate

    • Pre-Screening: All our surrogates are pre-screened and insured, which helps shorten the matching time.
    • Analytics: We use data analytics to streamline our processes, ensuring that intended parents are matched with a surrogate as soon as their embryos are ready for transfer.
  • Expediting the Process

    • Payments: By making your Stage 2 payment along with your Stage 1 payment, you can expedite the legal process, allowing our team to begin drafting the necessary documents earlier.
    • Surrogate Profile and Communication: Once matched, we provide a surrogate profile and arrange a video call to ensure all parties are comfortable and confident moving forward.

Preparation for Embryo Transfer

    1. Surrogate Preparation

      • Timeline: Surrogates need approximately two weeks for medical preparations and another 5-7 days for endometrial stimulation.
      • Endometrial Lining: Our medical team ensures the surrogate’s endometrial lining is optimal before scheduling the embryo transfer.
    2. Embryo Transfer and Monitoring

      • Transfer Date: This date is flexible and depends on the readiness of the surrogate’s endometrium.
      • Beta Test: Ten days after the embryo transfer, we perform a beta test to check for elevated HCG levels, indicating that the placenta has begun developing.
      • Ultrasound Monitoring:
        • Gestational Sac: Two weeks after a positive beta test, a gestational sac ultrasound is performed.
        • Heartbeat Detection: Another ultrasound is conducted two weeks after detecting the gestational sac, typically around six weeks of development, to confirm the presence of a heartbeat.

Kira Surrogacy carefully manages each stage of the surrogacy process to minimize wait times and ensure a smooth experience for both intended parents and surrogates. Our goal is to provide confidence and security as you embark on this remarkable journey to parenthood.

On average, you can expect your embryo transfer to take place within 1-2 months from the time we receive your embryos.
