USC Fertility provides surrogacy for gay couples

Because we understand that LGBTQ fertility treatments require a little extra effort, our Los Angeles fertility center experts are dedicated to making your parenthood dreams a reality. We want to make sure we meet your needs and that you and your partner feel cared for throughout the process. Our team will work to ensure that you and your partner have a complete understanding of your family building options.

Take the first steps toward family building with surrogacy

As a same sex male couple, creating your family will require unique circumstances. These includes egg donation and surrogacy for gay couples. USC Fertility can connect hopeful fathers with carefully screened egg donors. You and your partner can review the physical attributes, medical history, interests and other details about any potential donors. Some couples have a known egg donor in mind, so our team will work with you to carefully screen her to ensure that the egg donation process moves forward.

Understanding options for surrogacy for gay couples

A gestational surrogate (carrier) has no biological connection to the baby. This is because she does not provide her eggs, only her uterus. The gestational surrogate will undergo an embryo transfer after an in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycle is completed with donor eggs to carry your child to term. Because surrogacy can involve legal concerns, our Los Angeles fertility center can recommend agencies and legal experts to assist with the necessary considerations for this process.

When looking at gestational surrogates, keep in mind the following guidelines.

  • She must be at least 21 years or older.
  • The woman should have carried at least one healthy pregnancy to term.
  • She must agree to a full physical and psychological evaluation.
  • The woman must sign a legal contract regarding the terms of the surrogacy agreement.
