No Stable Partner, The Reason Behind Women Freezing Eggs: Study

Women tend to freeze their eggs not for career planning or education, but due to the lack of a stable relation according to a new study done by the Yale University in USA.
Lack of a stable relationship could be the reason why young women are increasingly opting to freeze their eggs, contrary to the popular belief of delaying childbearing due to pursuing education or career, says the study.

The findings showed that 85 per cent who chose to freeze their eggs, were without partners, and reflected six different life circumstances - being single, divorced or divorcing, broken up from a relationship, working overseas, single mother by choice or circumstance, and career planning.
Those with partners had circumstances such as a man not ready to have children, in a relationship too new or uncertain, with a partner who refuses to have children, or with a partner with his own multiple partners.

"Most of the women had already pursued and completed their educational and career goals but by their late 30s had been unable to find a lasting reproductive relationship with a stable partner. This is why they turned to egg freezing," said Marcia Inhorn from the Yale University in the US. "The medical literature and media coverage of oocyte cryopreservation - egg freezing - usually suggest that elective egg freezing is being used to defer or delay childbearing among women pursuing education and careers. "Our study suggests that the lack of a stable partner is the primary motivation," Inhorn said.

For the study, presented at the 34th Annual Meeting of ESHRE in Barcelona, the team conducted in-depth interviews with 150 women who had chosen to freeze their eggs at fertility clinics and had completed at least one cycle of oocyte cryopreservation.
"Clinicians must be aware of the role partnership 'troubles' play in the lives of egg freezing patients and make patient-centred care for single women a high priority," Inhorn said.

Across all our facilities at Kiran Infertility Center in India and abroad we have had many women (Single/Married), who decided to take the advantage of the technology of freezing their eggs, so they can fulfill their dreams of motherhood when they are ready.
We offer a very affordable package for oocyte freezing.

Why Ukraine Has Become A Hot-Spot For Child Surrogacy

Kiran Fertility Services has been helping Intended Parents via our Surrogacy Ukraine program for over 2 years. Surrogacy in Ukraine became very popular and Ukraine is called the 'capital of surrogate maternity' as the laws concerning surrogacy are relatively lax in comparison to other countries. The surrogate mother does not have the right to reconsider - that is, to keep the child instead of handing the child over to the Intended Parents. The price of the surrogacy process is also affordable.
"In many European countries surrogacy is allowed only if it does not entail a financial exchange," says Sergey Antonov, a lawyer from IRTSA Ukraine - one of the first firms in Ukraine to offer assisted reproduction services.

One of the laws issued by the Ministry of Health of Ukraine says that surrogacy can only be offered to a married couple which, for one reason or another, has been diagnosed as infertile and incapable of reproducing. 

We were always committed to help anybody to have a baby via our surrogacy program regardless of race, religion or sexual orientation or the fact that someone is or is not legally married and this is why we started with our Surrogacy Program in Kenya:
Surrogacy Kenya helped and is continuing to help many Intended Parents to have babies. It always feels good  to see "OUR" babies grow.

Surrogacy in UK - What You Need To Know About Having A Baby

At Kiran Fertility Services we are committed to helping everybody to have a baby via surrogacy regardless of race, religion, sexusal orientation or fact that you are or you are not legally married. Different countries have different laws in regards to surrogacy and it is important to know the facts. 

People may choose to use a surrogate for all sorts of reasons - fertility issues, preexisting health problems, issues with previous pregnancies or age-related concerns - and of course, it can seem like a no-brainer for same-sex couples or single people looking to have a family of their own.

There are two types of legal surrogacy in the UK
- gestational - where the surrogate is implanted with an embryo that has been fertilised in a lab using the intended mother's or donor's egg and the intended father's or donor's sperm. 
- traditional surrogacy - where the surrogate's own egg is fertilised by the intended father's sperm.

The current law in UK means parents having a baby through surrogacy must apply for a court order to gain legal rights over the child once it has been born.
It can also mean that if a surrogate mother changes her mind about giving up the child, parents could face a long legal battle to try and claim the baby. This is because current rules in the UK give a woman automatic parentage over any child she gives birth to, even if the child is not biologically her own. 
We have many Intended Parents joining one of our surrogacy programs at both Surrogacy Kenya and Surrogacy Ukraine from UK to avoid situations like that and also because of the fact that surrogacy abroad is much more affordable.

Being a surrogate isn't an easy job  - pregnancy puts a massive strain on the body. Most surrogates don’t get into it for the money in UK. They do it because they love children, and they want to help people who cannot have them.
All surrogates, whether traditional or gestational, are required to complete a health screening form - and in some cases may be required to show evidence of their blood tests to the potential parents or their representatives.

The number of Chinese Intended Parents seeking IVF and surrogacy services has significantly increased in the past two years since the end of the one child policy in China. We have many Intended Parents seeing IVF at our Kiran Infertility Center clinics across India and also many Intended Parents seeking surrogacy program at Surrogacy Kenya.

More and more Chinese couples are going abroad seeing for fertility treatments, as doctors in China can not treat all those who seek assistance conceiving.
There are only 400 licenced IVF clinics in China and somewhere between 40 to 90 million infertile people, more than 2 millions IVF cycles are needed each year and only about half of million can be done at the moment. There are also restrictions on egg donations and surrogacy and this is why many Intended Parents are seeking treatments overseas. Kiran Fertility Services is happy to assist via our IVF and Surrogacy Programs.

At Surrogacy Kenya we just have had a birth of beautiful set of twins – a boy and a girl via our surrogacy program in Kenya to our Intended Parents from China. We have at the moment 8 more Surrogate Mothers carrying babies for our Intended Parents from China at our Surrogacy Kenya.

Canadian MP's bill to decriminalise surrogacy and donor payments

A private member's bill aims to decriminalise payments for sperm, eggs and surrogacy in Canada.

It's time Canada got it right,' said Sarah Cohen, founder of Fertility Law Canada.

Canada has a shortage of gamete donors and surrogates so most couples who need surrogacy have to go abroad, often to the USA where paid surrogacy is legal in some states but can be extremely expensive.

A shortage of sperm donors within Canada means that most sperm used in fertility clinics is imported.

Cohen points out that most of this sperm comes from paid donors anyway, with the added difficulties of lack of control over how many families are created from a single donor, and lack of donor information for the resulting children.

The Association of Reformed Political Action Canada oppose the bill: 'Our law needs to respect the best interests of all children and to defend their human dignity.

' Dr Alana Cattapan, assistant professor at the Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy at the University of Saskatchewan advises legislators to wait until Health Canada issues clearer rules about sperm, eggs and surrogacy, expected later this year.

IVF/Surrogacy benefits all class of people

Krushna Abhishek and Kashmera Shah’s twins (born via surrogacy) first birthday bash was no less than a grand bash with every popular TV celeb present.

Kashmera revealed in one recent interview, that she and Krushna had tried 13 times to have kids naturally, however, it didn't work out. The actor stated that in just 10 days, she went from size two to eight and tried every month to have a baby; she even pumped herself with injections.
She told in the interview that one of Krushna's cousins suggested them to opt for surrogacy. Shah said people in India think that an actor opts for surrogacy because they think she is figure-conscious. She said that because of their profession, they don't tend to marry early or have kids soon. But it was really hard for her to go through all the struggle.

Well, now this family looks complete.
