Understanding your hopes and dreams for a family is the cornerstone of working with Future Generations. From finding the right match to being with you through the entire process, this journey is tailored to your needs.

How do I get started?

The first step is to have a consultation scheduled with our IVF specialists to discuss the IVF treatment plan and process for your individual case. This would be the time when more specific questions about your unique experience would be raised. For example, you might want to ask the physician about what screening tests are needed for you as intended parents.  Do you need an egg donor or sperm donor?  Is there a concern for disease or illness in your family history that is of concern? Any of these types of questions would help determine what is needed for your journey to be as successful as possible.

How long is the process?

As with many medical journeys, the length of time will vary with each one. Because there are many factors that can affect the course of a journey, there is no set time. Generally, the timeline we most commonly see is below:

  • Embryo Creation: After determining the needs of our Intended Parents, the embryo will need to be created for use with your surrogate. If you are using an egg donor, the egg donor will go through steps such as medical screening and signing a legal agreement. Then, a complete stimulation cycle for the egg retrieval will need to take place, regardless of the egg’s source (Donor or Intended Parent). This process can take an estimated 3 months. Once eggs are retrieved and sperm have been collected, our lab will use these materials to create your embryos. This process and biopsy analysis will take around 7 days.
  • Finding The Right Surrogate: Because finding your surrogate can be a lengthy process, we recommend looking for your Surrogate as soon as possible. On the surrogate’s side, the surrogate will need to perform a number of steps such as medical screening and signing a legal agreement. This part of the journey’s time can vary greatly; this is why we are here to help expedite the process.
  • Embryo Transfer: When it comes to a Surrogate’s Frozen Embryo Transfer cycle, each case can vary due to several factors. In a typical scenario, the embryo transfer procedure usually takes place between days 19 and 21 of the Surrogate’s menstrual cycle. This is followed by a pregnancy blood test approximately 10 days post-implantation. We will continue to follow up with the Surrogate until the 10 weeks OB ultrasound. After 10 week’s OB ultrasound, the Surrogate will be discharged to her OB’s care.
How long does it take to be matched with a surrogate?

The matching process can vary greatly depending on the criteria for both parties, but the matching process typically takes around three to six months. While some matches are almost immediate, others take time to curate and find exactly what everyone is looking for. 

How does an egg donor/surrogate get screened?

Before we present you the egg donor or surrogate mother’s profile, our specialist have already have all the medical records. Once you are matched with an egg donor or surrogate mother or both, our coordinator will send over the records to the IVF clinic for review. Once the clinic approved, in-person medical screening will be scheduled for the egg donor/surrogate.
