For gay men looking to become parents, gestational surrogacy has become a popular option. In the past, it was more common for a surrogate to be artificially inseminated and then carry the baby to term. With gestational surrogacy, one woman donates the eggs and a second woman carries the baby. In this case, the success rate can be influenced by selecting both the healthiest eggs and the healthiest gestational carrier. One or both men can contribute the sperm that is used to form the embryo (or embryos).
The in vitro fertilization process (IVF) can affect every area of your life: finances, health, emotions and your relationship with your partner. There can be physical discomfort, hormonal swings, feeling a loss of control, disappointment, fear of futility, and scheduling logistics that seem to turn your life upside down. All this takes its toll, and that is why many couples drop out before experiencing success.
