COVID-19, Egg Donation and Surrogacy: What you need to know

  1. 🩺 Safety is the priority of reproductive clinics
  2. 🤰 Changing the priorities of intended parents
  3. ⭐ Flexible but careful behavior of egg donors

 And everyone in the fertility world is working hard to help Intended Parents move forward with family plans through egg donation and surrogacy.

Feskov Human Reproduction Group acts as a link between all participants in the process - surrogates, prospective parents, donors. The Center's specialists help patients with fertility problems navigate the constantly changing conditions, and also feel themselves, at least to some extent, in control of what is happening.

Safety is the priority of reproductive clinics


As the incidence of infection COVID-19 is increasing in various countries, reproductive health clinics, like any medical facility, respond with caution to the arrival of new patients. Because the safety of the people who put their trust in them is paramount.

The latest recommendations from the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) are as follows:

  • careful study and consideration of the prevalence of the disease, both in the region of the intended parents and in the region of the donor or surrogate mother;
  • the use of cryopreserved sperm or frozen embryos, as an alternative to personal travel, while in different regions or states.

The emphasis on safety and strict adherence to regulations may scare away some patients. Based on this, reproductive specialists imagine the stress in which their patients have to act. Therefore, they work relentlessly to support future parents, donors and surrogates in choosing the safest options.

Changing the priorities of intended parents


With ongoing recommendations for enhanced security measures, future parents:

  1. give preference to egg donors living in their region.
  2. search for suitable frozen eggs that may be transported to their location.

As noted in the guidelines of ASRM, travelling between provinces and states should be as limited as possible. This is especially true for high-risk regions.

Most intended parents take the risk of getting sick and the consequences of the Corona virus seriously. So they quickly adapted to the new rules.

Also, the intended parents are rightly concerned about gestational surrogacy and the risk of infection of the surrogate mother with the Corona virus. However, surrogate mothers do their best to convince them that they will take extra precautions. So that the precious cargo inside the abdomen is not endangered. Since they are all mothers and understand how stressful this situation is.

Flexible but careful behavior of egg donors


Oocyte donors are sympathetic to changing circumstances. However, they are careful about travels and trips. Most often, they provide their services to clinics in their place of permanent residence.

The reluctance of some donors to travels, especially long-distance ones, is understandable. Since in addition to the risks of infection COVID-19, many clinics require a two-week quarantine upon arrival. Which is not very convenient.

Therefore, for intended parents, there are two alternatives:

  1. Look for a local oocyte donor.
  2. Delay the cycle until it becomes safe to move, both in the regions and in other countries.

All participants in the process of gestational surrogacy must be flexible and adapt to extreme circumstances.
