Bridgeport, CT (PRWEB) November 30, 2011
International patients who need the help of an American surrogate to become parents are often forced to deal not only with the potentially high costs involved, but also prolonged periods of stay in the USA. This is especially true for couples that do not use an American egg donor, when the intended mother needs to start a medication and monitoring regime several weeks before the IVF procedure. But by announcing new partnerships with reputable clinics around the world, CT Fertility has been increasingly able to allow more clients to save substantial time, money and stress.
?Surrogacy is a complex process that require multiple well-synchronized preparatory steps,? says Dr. Doyle, the clinic?s medical director, ?which forces most clinics to insist on doing everything under one roof. While this serves local clients well, it makes the process daunting and cost-prohibitive to prospective parents who come here from regions where top rated reproductive clinic do not exist or from most European countries, where surrogacy or egg donation are severely limited or restricted.? To make the treatment more accessible and affordable, CT Fertility?s staff worked hard over the last few years to streamline the process so that many more CT Fertility clients, both Americans and from around the world, can now work with doctors in their communities for all the preliminary screening and monitoring work, and thereby reduce the amount of time they need to spend away from home, with the related expenses and stress of traveling to the United States.
While such cooperation is not uncommon in the USA, it is much more challenging to delegate so much of the process to clinics that operate in different time zones, languages, and regulatory environments. To that end CT Fertility has been developing a growing network of top quality doctors, labs and support service professionals it selected in primary US and international destinations. Cooperation started about five years ago with clinics in Sweden and Israel, and has expanded since to countries like Ireland, the UK, Spain and Germany. These clinics follow CT Fertility?s protocols to prescribe medications, conduct screening and genetic blood tests, physical exams, and ultrasound monitoring of both male and female patients.
The benefits to prospective parents are numerous. A majority of the male clients now preform semen analysis, blood and genetic screening in their own countries, saving the cost and time of traveling to the USA for this purpose, and often having much of the medical cost covered by their national health insurance. When a prospective mother is using her own eggs, the savings are even larger. ?The care I received locally for the scans, monitoring, and related services made the experience very efficient,? recounts an Irish patient. ?I am very pleased with what we achieved so far, and we intend to continue increase the number of such fruitful cooperation arrangements,? said Dr. Doyle. ?Overall dozens of Europeans and other CT Fertility clients are now able to avoid needless stress and separation from their families, and save thousands of dollars by shortening the stay in the USA and taking advantage of their own national health insurance to cover the costs of medications, lab and medical fees.?
