IVF and Egg Donation in Mexico


Mexico’s proximity to Latin America, Canada and the USA has made it an in-demand spot for infertility treatment. Perfect white sand beaches, bright sunshine, and a historically rich culture makes this country an attractive option for couples willing to travel for their fertility treatments – after all, they get a relaxing holiday along with it!


IVF is one of the most popular forms of ART (Assisted Reproductive Technology). It consists of a combination of egg and sperm samples, combined in a culture dish to create an ideally viable embryo. Common causes of both male and female infertility can often be avoided – Mexico is renowned for its highly-trained fertility doctors and specialists, and can identify markers of common causes of infertility.


IVF and egg donations are 4 times more expensive in the US and Canada than in Mexico. Additionally, commercial egg donation is prohibited in both countries – you’re required to instead sit on lengthy waiting lists. The Federal Government of Mexico, meanwhile, does not enforce the same heavy-handed surrogacy restrictions. In fact, the only Mexican state where international surrogacy is prohibited is Tabasco, but this has no effect on the rest of the country. That is why intended parents from the United States and Canada travel to Mexico for IVF and egg donation procedures.


Surrogacy and egg donation is even legal for same-sex couples and single individuals everywhere in the country except for Tabasco. Intended parents in all situations are welcomed to the country to grow and balance their families through surrogacy programs in Mexico.



Why choose IVF?


There are many reasons why couples replace IUI treatments with IVF treatments. Here are some of the most common;

  • The success rate of IUI generally tends to diminish after the third or fourth attempt.
  • IVF has a significantly higher success rate than IUI
  • Choosing IVF treatments first instead of after repeated IUI failure means you’re going for the more certain option first. Extended delays in treatment – and the long-term nature of some treatments – means repeated failure can make age-related fertility complications worse.



Uses of IVF


Most fertility clinics in Mexico do not attempt IVF with the mother’s eggs if the age limit is higher than their standard bar. However, in New Life Mexico, IVF is first attempted with the mother’s eggs rather than sticking to one inflexible standard age range. After all, every case naturally from one another.


Women who have issues with their fallopian tubes benefit greatly from IVF treatment. IVF treatment bypasses the fallopian tubes completely, so women with absent or blocked fallopian tube can also conceive through it.


Women who are facing infertility issues like endometriosis and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) can also benefit from IVF as it is unaffected by many common symptoms of these issues. Those with abnormal ovulation cycles can conceive with IVF, as the fertility drugs induce ovulation to produce healthy eggs rather than relying on their natural cycle. If the woman cannot produce her own fertile eggs even with the treatment, then in that case also she can conceive with the aid of donor eggs. This assisted reproductive technology also enables gay couples to become parents along with straight couples. For a gay couple, IVF is done by the aid of and a gestational surrogate and an egg donor. 

This procedure is made up of the following stages;

  • Ovarian stimulation with medical fertility drugs to promote multiple egg production
  • Follicle stimulation and sperm transfer
  • Oocytes and sperm kept in culture dish to form embryo
  • Embryo transferred to womb
