Official statistics indicate that about 1-2% of the population of Russia are carriers of the Human Immunodeficiency Virus. However, due to the development of medicine, and, in particular, ART, even such a serious illness as HIV is not an obstacle to the birth of one's own healthy children.
The legislation of the Russian Federation officially permits the use of services of a surrogate mother by parents, one of who has positive HIV status (or use by one parent). The participation of a surrogate mother in such a program is allowed on the basis of her informed voluntary consent obtained after consulting a physician.
Obviously, a program using donated oocytes / sperm is possible for people with HIV, but gestational surrogacy is also possible with embryos made from biologic material of a personal with HIV. Thanks to the sperm cleaning technology, as well as the PGD procedure, it is possible to conduct the cultivation and subsequent thorough diagnosis of the obtained embryos, which will allow the transfer of embryos, that are 100% healthy into the uterus of a surrogate mother. Moreover, the risk of the virus infection by the surrogate in this case is completely impossible.
ISA has extensive experience in programs for HIV clients. So, by the beginning of 2019, we had: three finished HIV programs, two pregnant surrogate mothers under a program for clients with HIV and another 3 surrogates were preparing for a transfer.
Our staff will do everything possible to eliminate all obstacles to realization of your dream of a child, despite even such seemingly difficult circumstances as HIV.
