Patients from China may choose to seek treatment at the Fertility Institute of Hawaii, due to the restrictions on certain services in their home country. Many patients will choose to do IVF at the Fertility Institute of Hawaii to increase their chances of conception utilizing technology that is not available in their country. We have experienced Chinese-speaking staff who make the cycle experience easy, enjoyable, and most of all successful.
In China, egg donation and gestational surrogacy are illegal. The Fertility Institute of Hawaii has helped many Chinese patients obtain their dream of having a family using donor eggs. With some of the highest pregnancy rates in the world (> 80% for Egg Donor Cycles), it makes logical sense that many patients are coming to the Fertility Institute of Hawaii for their Chinese Donor Egg IVF cycle.
PGS or Preimplantation Genetic Screening is restricted in China. Using PGS, couples can ensure that their embryos are chromosomally normal prior to embryo transfer with IVF. While anyone can use PGS in order to ensure that only chromosomally normal embryos are transferred during an IVF cycle, PGS is often used for older couples who have an elevated risk of chromosomally abnormal embryos. Likewise, couples with a history of miscarriages often utilize PGS to decrease the risk of miscarrying.
PGS not only confirms that the chromosomal compliment of an embryo is normal but also determines the gender of an embryo. Once PGS is completed, couples are allowed to choose the gender of the normal embryos transferred in order to ensure family balancing
With the shortage of sperm donors in China, many couples will travel outside of the country to the U.S. where donors exist in larger numbers, to assist them in family building. The Fertility Institute of Hawaii can assist you with a Sperm Donor IVF cycle.
