InFertility Treatment Options for Same Sex Couples
Gestational surrogacy can be used by any couple that is biologically unable to have a child. This option is ideal for gay men and for lesbian couples wanting to be parents. Today, the assistance of a gestational surrogate is popular. A gestational surrogate is a woman who agrees to carry and give birth to a child for another couple. The egg and sperm used is from one of the partners or from a donor. The gestational surrogate is not genetically related to the child she carries.
The process of finding a surrogate, coming to an agreement on all terms, and addressing the legal issues is not simple. A surrogacy agency, such as New Beginnings Surrogacy, must be used to ensure that all legal and financial issues are carefully thought out and addressed. The Team at New Beginnings has extensive experience working with same sex couples and is known for their high level of service extended to both intended parents and their surrogates.
When donor eggs are necessary to achieve a healthy pregnancy, it is important to work with a qualified, experienced, and ethical egg bank. Donor eggs are chosen based upon a number of criteria:
- Ethnicity of donor
- Education of donor
- Physical appearance of donor
- Medical and pyschological background of donor
Intended parents are able to choose from donors that have already donated or from donors who will undergo a donor cycle once they’re matched with a family.
As with donor eggs, it is important to work with an established, ethical, and reliable sperm bank when healthy sperm is necessary to achieve a pregnancy. Sperm donors may also be selected based upon a number of criteria including the donor's looks, education, interests, and hobbies.
