The Biggest Ask Forums For Surrogates Medical Screening

    What should surrogates expect during medical screening appointment? We’ve talked about this on our support calls but thought I would get the question down in one place so everyone can answer what their experience with medical screening was!

    My surrogate did the following during her screening:
    Bloodwork, Saline sonogram and HSG

    Then started meds for a mock transfer, took estrogen, went for a lining check to make sure she responds to the estrogen and then next month we transfer!

    Hi,

    I just returned from my Medical work up. It was scheduled 6 days past cycle day 1. We did a physical exam, exactly like you’d expect from an annual physical exam. Saline sonogram, a ton of questions, blood draw (9 vials) and a urine sample. The whole thing was about 45 minutes, super easy!
