Many intended parents show big interest for the guarantee programs, as such agreement will put their mind in ease and will ensure that they will not spend funds for new cycles. Unlimited programs usually are very magnetic as within the agreement the agency has to give a quick result without any additional payments, looks like a dream offer for every couple, struggling with infertility. Sad that some agencies use such offers as advertisement trick and keep silence about possible changes during the process. Every businessman understands that such programs are a big financial risk, so to be able to handle such risk, he has to provide the result quickly and with a minimum cost involved, in our case it means to have the pregnancy from first-fourth embryo transfer and from the first fertilization cycle, not to go far into tries as there will be more costs involved. In conclusion of this thought it is obvious that the agency has to be absolutely sure that the fertility clinic has a high success rate and the doctor is very successful in fast pregnancies to be able to offer such a package.
We also have guarantee program in Ukraine, but we are fully honest with our clients that there are conditions that might change the unlimited option during the program. Such conditions were dictated by the necessity only, because we are dealing with biological materials and life organisms that sometimes are not under our full control. I think honesty and realistic approach are a must have if big funds and hopes are involved. In my opinion, unlimited offers in IVF treatments must not be misused by many agencies just to catch a client, sign a contract and take money. A client has to be fully prepared for any problems that might arise during and after fertilization process, during gestation period and not be surprised and disappointed later. Imagine that there are no embryos after fertilization or all embryos are genetically abnormal, can an agency fulfill the unlimited option in this case? I have to admit that many parents don’t want to go deep into the understanding of such issues and demand unlimited cycles with such biological material that can’t simply create healthy embryos. Such illusion can harm a lot, that is why I encourage to be more realistic with unlimited programs. Most of our couples have good material, that allows us to fulfill the unlimited option having 4-9 healthy embryos and a super healthy, perfect surrogate mother. Creation of healthy embryos is not only a responsibility and professionalism of the medical and embryology team, it is also genetics of the intended parents that pays even a bigger role.
The unlimited option is available only for donor eggs, because we use only proven and young egg donors with very good eggs that have their own healthy child, are genetically screened and have provided good result in past, the only thing is to be approved here is the sperm of the intended father. In case you are approved for stimulation on your own eggs, meet age requirements, you can be included into the program price for one cycle and all embryos from your cycle will be transferred within the unlimited option. In case you have low reserve or doctor predicts less than 10 oocytes, the cycle on own eggs goes as additional payments and on donor eggs as unlimited without additional payment. The biomaterial plays a big role in the result and outcome of number and quality of embryos successful fertilization and implantation.
