Ivf versus adoption which is best one?

  1. 1. IVF versus adoption: Which is best one?http://www.delhi-ivf.comFor couples who want children but cant conceive naturally, this is a personal crisis and its every hard todeal with it.Of course there is no one right answer. Adoption and in vitro fertilization both carry financial, medical,and family dynamic risks.With Hollywood luminaries like Sandra Bullock, Tom Cruise, and Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie going theadoption route, and other late-in-life parents risking medical intervention to see their own genesreplicate in a biological birth, the debate continues about what is best for the individual, our culture, andthe planet.Lets start with economics. The average cost of in vitro is nearly $3,000 per cycle and adoption costsanywhere from $5,000 to $40,000. Also many cycles of in vitro are often required to create a pregnancythat goes full term. The success rate is to 20-30 percent for women aged 38-40, and if you opt it early itmay have better chances and for women over forty, it is as low as 5-10 percent. Then there are themedical complications that can rack up more costs. Laparoscopy used to extract eggs carries risksrelated to the anesthesia. Then there are risks of infection, bleeding, damage to the bowel, bladder, or ablood vessel. Surgery to repair damage can also be costly.And then there are the emotional factor, risks and rewards. Some people believe that there is no greaterjoy and meaning in life than to watch ones own genes blend with a loved one’s and prosper. Othersthink -- a parent is the person who raises a child, not the one who throws genetic material their way.Indeed, recent studies on non-biological caregivers and adoptive parents point to hormonal changes inthe adult that occur through the acts of bonding and nurturing. And with steady rates of one in fivewomen over the age of forty being childless, a case can be made that natures intention was for a villageof caregivers to nurture any given child.Then there are Legal Issues. If you are NRI and adopting a child, the process itself takes around 2 yearand lot of Legal things.Ivf is good if you plan this early and properly, and come with great satisfaction. It may cost you high butworth spending. But if you already crossed 40, then adoption is good idea coz that helps you not to fightwith your health and low performance of IVF cycle.Benefits of AdoptionsAdoption benefits everyone in the adoption triad. Many of these benefits are helpful to the birthmotherand birthfather. Other benefits are directed at the child who is being placed for adoption and/or the

Adoption brings a positive ending to a challenging situation and benefits everyoneinvolved.Benefits of IVFIVF (in vitro fertilization) is the most common form of ART (Assisted Reproductive Technology). If thefallopian tubes are damaged or the sperm is poor, it is obviously the only acceptable treatment. It is alsousually the most effective treatment for most other types of infertility as well. The eggs are fertilized inour laboratory, and the resulting embryos then are placed into the uterus 2 to 5 days later. Thisprocedure achieves remarkable pregnancies even in women with hopelessly damaged fallopian tubes,seemingly sterile husbands, and even “unexplained” infertility. Problems with the husband’s sperm arenever a serious issue, since we can fertilize the eggs with ICSI. In fact, in our program we routinely useICSI in all cases to guarantee against any risk of failed fertilization. Our IVF pregnancy rate is over 50%per attempt, regardless of diagnosis, and we accept all of the most difficult cases.
