In this video, a renowned surrogacy doctor talks about the screening process before surrogacy in India.
“What are the tests which are must to do when we start the process?
Well there are long list of screening tests that are done before a couple or a same sex couple or a single man can be taken into a program. Essentially the tests are a combination of hormones and the infectious disease screen. There are long lists of tests which can be done in your own country or could be cult from records of your previous IVF clinic where you are taking treatment.
We accept tests which are only 90 days old and on the first contact when you ask us to register you; we will send you the entire list of screening tests that are applicable to you. And in case in some countries a test like HIV or PCR is not done, then the individual has to come down to our clinic once and get his blood drawn for HIV PCR and only then the semen will be considered free from disease upto the day the blood is drawn for HIV PCR.
So as you can see that it is a very stringent procedure, we don’t want our surrogates exposed to any sort of infectious or communicable disease, so the guidelines of screening are pretty stringent.”
Many people who have failed to have their own children are heading towards Indian surrogacy clinics because of quality treatment at a fraction of cost of what they would have to pay in their own countries.

Disease Screening in Surrogacy – Video Narration
“Yes it is absolutely mandatory to have a thorough infectious disease screen done on the male partner which would include Hepatitis – A, B, C, HIV and even screening for cephalexin gonorrhea. What is very important in our program is that we insist on a HIV PCR.
An HIV PCR is a test which detects the HIV antigen. In contradiction to the routine HIV screening done which detects the antibodies which can become positive even 2 or 3 months after exposure. When you detect an HIV antigen doing an HIV PCR, it tells you the status of the individual whether he is infected or not on the day that the blood test was done. And before doing any embryo transfer it is mandatory for the person who is donating genetic material that goes into a surrogate to have an HIV PCR done at our facility.”
The doctor states that before collecting semen, male partner mandatorily undergoes a thorough infectious disease screen. In this screening, male partner is screened for Hepatitis – A, B, C, HIV and Cephalexin Gonorrhea.
Male partner also undergoes an HIV PCR test which detects the HIV antigen. It tells the status whether the individual is infected or not with HIV.
