6 Test-Tube Children And Surrogate Mothers

Test-Tube Children And Surrogate Mothers

Posted on May 15, 2012 by team

20 % of Kazakhstan population have infertility problems. It means each fifth couple…

Many families have children only thanks to IVF program. Some others use services of surrogate mothers and they do not want to be photographed or interviewed being afraid of the evil eye. They say that society still doesn’t accept the children who were born in a way different from the traditional one.

Rimma agreed to tell her story to inspire other women who lost their hope to have children. Before IVF she worked in a construction company, her husband was a driver. After giving birth to Polina she left her job to pay more attention to her daughter.

She doesn’t understand women who say that they do not want to have children, or do not want yet. Happiness for her has always been connected with maternity.

She’s been dreaming of children since being a child herself. But many disappointments waited for her. She got pregnant but couldn’t give a birth to a baby… Her husband supported her as he could. Though it was never enough. She envied moms for many years. IVF was a chance despite all difficulties related to it. There is an IVF center in Almaty where she finally called.

She had much support from close people and believed in skills of her doctor. Her dream finally came true, today she and her husband have a charming daughter who is going to turn 5 soon.

Rimma says she’d never been that happy.

“Our lives belong to her”

Each day they thank God and the favuorite doctor for the happiness to be parents. They are proud of themselves.

There are about ten clinics occupied with assisted reproductive treatment (ART) in Kazakhstan. Programs are standard in each clinic.

Tamara Dzhusubalieva, director of Reproductive Medical Institute: “Annually more than 13 thousand couples contact us having infertility problems. IVF is successful in about 40% of all cases. Thanks to this technology more than 6 thousand children have been born for the last 15 years. Couples from various regions come to our clinic, we offer lower prices for high quality”.

“It’s all thanks to IVF”

Today infertility problems are successfully solved and almost any family can have children. If a woman can’t get pregnant but has patent fallopian tubes insemination is applied. The procedure is not often successful. If fallopian tubes are not patent IVF is applied. They also apply various methods if men have reproductive problems.

The center has a donor sperm bank. IVF is getting more and more successful, each particular case is thouroughly analyzed.

Price of IVF procedure can reach 500-700 thousand tenge (3400 – 4700 USD) but there are other opportunities for those who can’t pay for it. Kazakhstan has been helping such couples with quotas for the last three years.

Patients aged 35-37 years old are sent to the IVF procedure. The women have to go through full examination before the procedure.

If a woman is under 35 she can wait for one year more. A couple is considered to be infertile if their attempts fail for a year.

    Fertility worldwide is on the decline. The population boom peaked around 1970. Now, it’s just because there are so many people that even if you have a birthrate just over 2.0, the numbers of humans will continue to increase. Fertility rates in other species (specifically amphibians, but also many fish, reptiles and mammals) are also declining. Leeching chemicals from plastics are acting like estrogens, effectively feminizing some species of fish and amphibians. Other chemicals in the environment are causing mutations in sperm cells, rendering many infertile. But I’m a neo-malthusian so this doesn’t bother me.

    WTF??? Thank the doctor, and the years of effort of the scientists, not some invisible magic man, of whom there is no evidence of!!

      You’re wrong my friend, you can’t prove God doesn’t exist. Don’t use your brainwashed school book knowledge.
      – Love and peace
