Hey Victoria, hope you are doing well. Dear, this matter cant be resolved over suggestions. Your friends’ medical condition will specify the appropriate treatment. As in my case I had endometriosis. So doctors recommended me to try IVF. I failed 2 IVF failures. My husband also left me after that. Now I am with my second husband and he wanted me to try IVF again. We talked to a few clinics among which some were very pathetic like L***s clinic. This clinic dont even respect their patients, they wasted our precious time . Anyways after this worst experience we switched to one other clinic. After reviewing our reports doctors recommended us surrogacy. They briefed us about our medical condition and how our IVF success chances are very shallow. We are now opting for surrogacy and searching for a surrogate. Do tell your friend to take doctor advice and then take appropriate decision.
