The state of California is receptive to both gestational carriers (surrogate moms) and intended parents. Whether you reside in a big city, such as Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, or Sacramento, or a less populated part of California, this article will provide you with all the information you need regarding gestational surrogacy.
Surrogacy allows people and couples of all backgrounds, ages, and sexual orientations to start families.
Each surrogacy journey is unique. The following types of California intended parents may use surrogacy to expand their families:
• Heterosexual couples who have struggled with infertility
• Intended mothers who are unable to carry a child
• Intended parents who have a genetic defect or health condition they don’t want to pass on to the child
• LGBTQ+ intended parents who want a genetic link to their baby
In California’s largest cities, the typical cost of IVF therapy is between $8,000 and $13,000 for one IVF cycle without medication. The state of California mandates that insurance companies provide coverage for intended parents seeking infertility therapy. However, this regulation does not apply to IVF procedures in California.
The Variable Costs
IVF costs might be difficult to estimate since they vary based on the fertility clinic chosen. However, you should anticipate significant costs since you are choosing a fertility specialist who attended medical school particularly to assist intended parents battling infertility.
The price of this procedure might vary based on the facility and fertility specialist. What other factors might increase the cost of IVF? Here are a few instances.
Repeated Failed Attempts
IVF may need many tries before achieving success. Each time, the parents battling with infertility will be responsible for this cost. What may have begun as a modest $12,000 price tag for a single cycle may easily grow or even treble by the conclusion of the surrogacy procedure. Costs of repeated cycles will likely not include the cost of egg production, but your specific experience may vary based on the fertility clinic you choose and your success rate.
In some circumstances, the parents may need to employ an egg donor in order for IVF and transfer to be successful. An egg donor cannot be a surrogate who has passed their surrogacy criteria.

If IVF fails, you may be required to take further reproductive drugs. Therefore, these costs will be included in your total fertility costs. The cost will increase proportionately with the quantity and duration of drugs required. In general, fertility drugs for your surrogate, you (for egg retrieval), and numerous dosages will cost between $3,000 and $7,000.
Genetic testing may assist parents in determining if they are passing on genetic abnormalities to their children. These problems may determine the success or failure of a pregnancy. Genetic testing (often referred to as PGS or PGD testing) typically costs between $6,000 and $8,000, depending on the number of embryos being evaluated.
