Surrogacy for HIV+ intended parents

According to the World Health Organization, 37.7 million people across the globe were living with HIV in 2020. A significant percentage of them are people of a child-bearing age.

Thanks to innovative surrogacy progress, it is completely possible for HIV+ intended parents to receive a healthy baby without transmitting the virus. World Center of Baby supports this modern technological advancement as a way to ensure that HIV+ couples meet no obstacle on their way to becoming parents.

HIV and fertility

HIV infection interferes with sexual and reproductive choices in a variety of ways, including concerns regarding sexual transmission to the uninfected partner, vertical transmission to the child, and severity of genital tract infections. There is also evidence that claims there is an increased tubal infertility and reduced ovarian reserve in HIV+ women.

As for HIV+ men, there is a common tendency for low testosterone levels and reduced semen volume and motility.

Although HIV influences the fertility of intended parents’, this is not a reason to give up on the dream of having a healthy baby. With careful planning and advanced technological enhancements, World Center of Baby guarantees the possibility of a safe and successful surrogacy journey for parents living with HIV.

SPAR ― the special program of assisted reproduction

― has presented a life-changing opportunity for HIV-positive males to experience parenthood safely through surrogacy. This procedure consists of 4 crucial stages:
1
Preliminary consultation and medical evaluation
Before applying for a SPAR program, WCOB medical experts will conduct an initial check-up to identify your current health status, the effectiveness of antiretroviral therapy, and possible STD (Sexually Transmitted Diseases). At this stage, our team also ensures that HIV+ intended parent is emotionally and physically ready to move to further steps of the SPAR process.
2
Semen sample collection
HIV-positive man’s specimen is extracted and transferred to the lab for a thorough examination.
3
Sperm washing
This procedure is revolutionary in terms of its enhancing impact on the sperm’s fertilizing capacity. The core of the sperm washing procedure is to separate it from the seminal fluid and to extract HIV-carrying material in the semen.
4
PCR testing
Before using male sperm for assisted reproductive treatment, it’s highly essential to confirm that there is no HIV virus left in the sperm. It is done thanks to PCR HIV testing and if the result is negative, the sample is ready for further usage.
