India Surrogacy Success Rates

While 2007 figures from the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology reported 276 successful gestational surrogate pregnancies in the U.S. (with the patient's oocytes), India's clinics likely delivered 150 successful gestational pregnancies (with both patient's and donor oocytes).  This makes India the second most common location for gestational surrogacy.  However India, unlike the U.S. and Europe, has clinics that specialize in gestational surrogacy.

Each Indian clinic provides support for different types of surrogacy, with many support all types of surrogacy including:

For cycles with gestational carriers using patient's oocytes, SART figures for clinics in the U.S. show that fresh cycles in 2007 had the following results:

Of these cycles, 30% had twins, and almost 3% had triplets or more. 

Oocytes from younger women possess greater fertility potential, so if you are using a donor egg, the donor's age is one of the most significant factors for a successful birth.  

Clinics in India have not yet published such specific results, but individual clinics do claim success rates close to 50% (although it is difficult to verify these claims).  A summary of clinics, the number of births, and their claimed success rates, is included as part of the clinics overview
