Hello everyone! We are a happily married gay couple (male+male), looking for agency or clinic. We have lived together for 8 years. We are going to be great caring parents. We need help will make our family complete.
maybe someone can recommend a good clinic? It will be ideal in the USAFebruary 13, 2018 at 10:33 am #1058MilanParticipant
Gay men also have options when it comes to becoming parents. Surrogacy is a popular choice, allowing one of the fathers to be genetically related to the child. Since the child is genetically and biologically connected to the carrier, traditional surrogacy can be risky and requires thorough legal guidance. Be prepared and always do your homework before you begin. Along with the options listed above, gay men and women also have another great option on the path to parenthood: adopting an infant or an older child. Whichever choice you make, learn all about your options here in our Topic Center on LGBT Family Building. Learning as much as possible about the different options is the first step toward starting a family. Talk to your doctor to see what options may be right for you. We are dedicated to helping you experience the joy of parenthood.February 15, 2018 at 8:52 pm #1070

I guess surrogacy is the best option for you guys.
Search about surrogacy over the web and you will find a useful information regarding surrogacy over the web.
At the age of 43 i am married again to someone else and we want a baby off our own.
I founded many clinics regarding surrogacy and i picked up the few clinics too for further discussion with them.
I contacted many clinics and told them every aspect of our complications.
From my last marriage i had many complications regarding pregnancy.
Like i was facing miscarriages every time i conceived.
I know at this age it is quite difficult to have a baby off my own womb.
Keeping in mind all the complications regarding pregnancy now i think i should go for some other option to have children.
So i persuaded my husband to go for surrogacy to have our own children.
He agreed to my proposal so i started looking for clinics with good surrogacy records.
But i’m worried about many other aspects like my behaviour towards the baby after knowing everything.
Like when the baby grows up what i should tell him/her.
But now i don’t have any other options left so far so surrogacy is the only solution to my problems i guess.
From their satisfied answers i guess some clinics are the best solution for having a baby.
So i suggest that you people should also do your own research regarding surrogacy and should contact different clinics for further details.
If someone is raising a baby from surrogacy method please share your experience with us so we can learn something from your experiences.March 13, 2018 at 3:27 pm #1097kim01Participant
Hey! It is great that you want to complete your family. It is not possible for that homosexual couple to have babies. But don’t worry about it. There are many ways to have babies. The couple who cannot conceive babies go for two procedures. One is IVF and other is surrogacy. For you, I would suggest surrogacy. Surrogacy is an unnatural way but you can have your own genetic babies. I have seen many gay couples who went for surrogacy and now they are a complete family and have healthy babies. There is a clinic in Ukraine which carry out surrogacy procedure. I would suggest you visit that clinic if you want babies. That clinic is not only for heterosexual couples. That clinics give best results. So don’t lose hope and go for it.March 15, 2018 at 6:06 am #1120chicagoParticipant
Damian, I don’t know how to respond your question. Question is not difficult but actually, I am confused about word selection. Well, first of all, you should identify such clinic which offers these types of procedures. Once my friend Monika said that different clinics in Ukraine, South Africa and India are offering. You may work with an agency to identify one. You may also choose a friend or relative to be your carrier. Her own egg will be fertilized and she will carry the pregnancy to term. You can adopt IVF with a donor egg.March 15, 2018 at 3:37 pm #1127Felicia SazParticipant
Hey. Hope you are well. There’s one in Ukraine you can go for. They’re affordable. Can I just tell you how happy your post made me? It just did for some reason. I hope you guys have a baby soon. Just be patient and hopeful. Good luck with everything.March 15, 2018 at 5:47 pm #1134Sasha JamesParticipant
Hi there. How are you doing? I Hope you are doing great. yes, I have heard surrogacy is helpful for gay couples. Its a blessing it’s for everyone. I hope this helps you. I hope you get what you guys want. Good Luck.March 16, 2018 at 8:54 am #1135StormiParticipant
If someone is to give an answer to your question then it will be diverse. You have not said precisely what the clinic should be for. Like do you want to adopt or? Personally I have asked myself many questions. That is before I read through others people’s comment. At first glance I though you were asking for an adoption agency. But then it seems you two want to become parents. As others have already told you. It could have been better if you went for surrogacy. It is one of the best method for same sex couples. Apart from the lesbian. Where one of them can carry the pregnancy instead. But for men, surrogacy is actually like the only option. Unless you want to adopt which is not a bad option itself. So you can choose with your partner with method suits you best. All the best.March 26, 2018 at 1:13 am #1381GracehillParticipant
Hello, I am not sure about men to men surrogacy process.Because it’s not allowed and legal in all over the country.I am telling you about my experience.Actually, I was married to loving and supportive husband.He has already the first marriage, but there is no kid from her.So, he wants to kid from me.But I am not enough lucky in this situation.For that, we both decided to take the process of surrogacy in Ukraine.We both are worried, my husband is much worried and depressed.How we got success in life.Now, after a long time and frustration is over.Finally, I overcome the terrible situation.You must have the concern with the doctor and sort out all the problems and difficulties.I hope in future you both have great life and happiness.Good luck.April 11, 2018 at 4:22 pm #1835Anna enriqueParticipant
Hey! It’s amazing that you want a family. A homosexual couple can also have babies. Don’t worry about it. There are many ways to have babies.

Trying to conceive is such a difficult part of my married life.I am ttc from last 10 years.Still i don’t have any luck with it.
There is no specfic cause of my infertility.I have gone through several medical tests regaring infertility but doctors can’t decide the main cause for my infertility.So they have called me infertile for life.
I want a baby too badly as i have been trying to conceive from the last decade.I am looking for other alternatives to have a baby.I have looked into a numbe rof options like adoption,surrogacy.
I have came to know from many forums about surrogacy. i heard many infertile women going for surrogacy.People on forum are discussing mostly about surrogacy,People discuss about clinics mostly.April 11, 2018 at 5:09 pm #1843AnonymousInactive
Hi. I am assuming you live in the US. I do, too. Which state do you live in? I’d prefer knowing that in order tell you your nearest clinics. As for me, I had surrogacy abroad. The reason was this. I had done a lot of research. My husband and I tried every method. We went to many clinics around us. But the US clinics were too expensive. Even the tests were too expensive. We came across some good packages at clinic abroad. Most of them were in Europe. We flew to Europe. It was a good experience.April 11, 2018 at 5:29 pm #1846ezabelParticipant
Hey! just felt like showing up here.
A great idea to build your family and cheers on that.
well, I often watch videos over the internet that you guys are being such great parents,
I am so sure even you guys would also be great in that.
though I seriously don’t have much knowledge about fertility clinic.
I am very new to all these. I joined this forum just to receive some of the great information regarding procedures.
I am an infertile person. and I suffer this each day.
Just sick of all of this.
Eventually started looking for assisted reproductive technologies.
would love to watch your thread comments also. There might be some tip for me even. what say?
I would pray you guys soon meet your wishes.
Good luck.April 25, 2018 at 10:21 pm #1952
