For anyone considering growing their family via surrogacy, it is completely understandable to ask the question “What are the chances?”. We are aware that after the emotional investment of finding your perfect surrogate match and the significant financial realities, having high odds of success is absolutely critical.

At First Fertility, maximizing your surrogacy success rates is our priority. We always keep up to date with the latest clinical data and protocols to continually refine and elevate our surrogate IVF cycle outcomes. Most importantly, we believe in complete transparency when it comes to your personalized probability projections.

Let’s take a look at some of the key statistics surrounding gestational surrogacy success, the factors that influence your chances, and how our experienced facility team keeps you firmly in that top percentile.  

Our Approach at First Fertility

Numbers and statistics only tell one part of the story. Thoughtful planning, creative problem-solving, and trusted emotional reassurance are what separate First Fertility as leaders in the surrogacy field.

Combining advanced clinical capabilities and a team of leading surrogacy professionals, we’ve carefully optimized our processes to achieve the highest success outcomes year over year. 

What is the Success Rate for Gestational Surrogacy?

Unfortunately, there’s no definitive one-size-fits-all statistic for gestational surrogate pregnancy rates. An array of personal variables for both the intended parents and the surrogate can dramatically impact your specific chances. 

However, most experts cite gestational surrogacy success rates as generally falling within these ranges:

  • 55% for intended parents under age 35
  • 42% for intended parents between 35-37 years old  
  • 27% for intended parents 38-40 years old

For context, the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) measures IVF live birth rates using non-donor eggs at 56% for patients under 35. This closely mirrors typical IVF surrogacy success rates for that age bracket.

Clearly, factors like the intended mother’s age and overall fertility status play a huge role. But many other variables contribute to these fairly wide percentage swings:

  • Egg and sperm quality 
  • Embryo creation and testing protocols
  • Surrogate’s age and corresponding IVF surrogacy success rates
  • Number of high-quality embryos transferred
  • Uterine environment and medical history 
  • Miscarriage or complications during pregnancy

While those consolidated success rate ranges provide a general barometer, we take great pride in reviewing each intended parent’s unique profile to strategize for optimal outcomes.

Improving your Chances of Surrogacy Success

Even with all the advanced strategies we’ve pioneered surrounding surrogacy arrangements, having a baby still requires science to cooperate. But our experienced team of fertility specialists have mastered protocols that consistently lead to high success rates:

IVF Lab Advantages for Maximum Embryo Quality

  • Cutting-edge embryologists using state-of-the-art technologies
  • Innovative embryo screening and genetic testing (PGT-A)
  • Double-validating sperm and egg factors contributing to unsuccessful cycles
  • Closely calibrating egg/embryo quality factors against surrogate profiles 

Selective Surrogate Expertise and Support

  • Rigorously screening and vetting potential surrogates
  • Optimizing surrogate for reproductive health and age
  • Providing exceptional pre/postnatal care and support

  • Multilingual services for international intended parent support  

While disappointment is always a possibility with surrogacy, partnering with a world-class IVF clinic like First Fertility puts high success rates well within reach.

Calculating the Chance of Multiple Transfers

One variable many intended parents may not consider is whether to transfer one embryo or multiple embryos during an IVF cycle with their surrogate. This decision can significantly impact success rates, but also potential health implications.

For instance, data shows transferring two embryos instead of one can boost delivery rates for intended mothers. However, the chances of multiples (twins or more) obviously increases as well. 

Our fertility counselors take an educated approach with each patient based on their specific embryo quality, transfer histories, personal preferences and more. Together, you’ll weigh the statistics behind single embryo transfer (eSET) vs. multiple embryo transfer to make the most ideal choice for your family goals.

Navigating Surrogacy Setbacks

Sometimes surrogacy is anything but a straight line to success. Failed transfers, miscarriages – these heartbreaking hurdles can seriously test emotional and financial reserves. But rest assured, our entire care team has your back through any impediments.

We boost your attempts by providing:

  • Emotional support resources from compassionate experts
  • Comprehensive medical evaluation for potential underlying causes  
  • Additional embryo testing and selection strategies
  • Opportunities to revisit surrogate options
  • Multi-cycle discounts to make persistence more affordable
  • Encouragement and hope from our real success stories
