If my surrogate mother has her tubes tied~why does she need to go on birth control before the transfer? does my surrogate mother need birth control before transfer with a tubal
Reply by Rayven
Yes, she still needs birth control pills. They actually are not used for birth control prior to a transfer (unless that was the method of birth control a woman was previously using) but are used to regulate a woman's cycle and sync it with either the intended mother or an egg donor so that the transfer can be made.
Both women need to be on the same cycle so timing is right. You're taking eggs from one woman (fertilizing them) and putting them into another...the body needs to be ready for them.
In some cases, even a frozen transfer patient will get birth control pills. For instance, I have a tubal, and I was always put on birth control prior to my transfers even though I always did frozen transfers. The IVF doctor scheduled all his transfers in the same week and then went to another office in another state, so the office sync'd all the patients for convenience.
Can my eggs be removed after my tubes have been tied and fertilized with my new husbands and carried by a surrogate?
I've had an ablasion and my tubes have been tied due to endometriosis. Can my eggs be taken after my tubes have been tied and fertilized with my husbands and carried in the womb of another woman so the baby can have my husband's and my genes?
Reply by Rayven It is possible for a woman who has had a tubal to harvest eggs, yes, and is common in the world of surrogacy. Whether you personally are able to do this would depend completely on your health situation and should be discussed with your doctor.
Can you be a surrogate mother after sterilization?
My sister-in-law can't have children, she is older than me. I have had all my children x4 but I am sterilized. I was wondering if it was possible?
It would have to be her eggs and her partners sperm. Also she can't change her mind as i don't want it afterwards.
Reply by Rayven Yes, you can become a gestational surrogate mother after a tubal. As to your comments about her changing her mind, you will need to discuss this with her prior to you becoming her surrogate.
can i be a surrogant for my brother and his wife even tho i have my tubes tide my sister in law is unable to carrier a child past 18 to 22 weeks
Reply by Rayven Yes, assuming that you met the other health/mental qualifications for surrogacy, you are able to become a gestational surrogate mother with your tubes tied. Because your own eggs are not needed with gestational surrogacy, it does not matter in the least if you do not have access to them.
Can u be a surrogate if you have had your tubes tied and c-section?
I had my tubes tied, And all of my 3 children were born by c- section, could I still be a surrogate? And how long would I have to wait before I could Be?

Yes, you can be a surrogate if you have had your tubes tied and if you have had a c-section. You would only be eligible to be a gestational surrogate, however, and not a traditional surrogate.
As to how long you need to wait between pregnancies, you simply need to be cleared for another pregnancy by your doctor. Since you have had c-sections in the past, you will most likely be required to continue having c-sections with your surrogacies.
Strangely, having your tubes tied and knowing you will need a c-section can be a good thing in surrogacy. The intended parents know that you will not accidentally get pregnant on your own while cycling for their surrogacy, and you can schedule the birth with a c-section.
You can become a gestational surrogate mother after a tubal because it is not your eggs you are using. I've had a tubal, LONG before starting surrogacy. It is actually the preferred method of birth control for gestational surrogate mothers.
You cannot become a traditional surrogate mother after a tubal since a traditional surrogate uses her own eggs.
