The intended parents should undergo a complete medical history and physical examination. Semen analysis should be obtained for the male partner, and an evaluation of ovarian function should be performed for the female partner.
The GC should undergo a complete medical history including a detailed obstetric history, lifestyle history, and physical examination. The GC should have an evaluation of her uterine cavity with hysterosalpingogram, sonohysterogram, or hysteroscopy.
Infectious-disease screening for syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia, CMV, HIV, and hepatitis B and C should be performed on the intended parents and the surrogate. The GC also should be screened for immunity to rubella, rubeola, and varicella. In addition, her blood type should be noted.
