Getting Started: Important Family Building Information For Gay Men
Congratulations on making the decision to become fathers. For everyone who wants to build a family, this is an important and often highly emotional decision. The best way to proceed is by getting all of the information you need and by having an outstanding medical team to work with you.
You may already know that the path to parenthood for gay men requires the involvement of a surrogate or gestational carrier and an egg donor. In this process, we use an egg from a donor and sperm from either male partner or a sperm donor to create an embryo, which is then placed inside the uterus of a gestational carrier to attempt to achieve a pregnancy. The reproductive experts at GayParentsToBe, in partnership with Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut (RMACT), are familiar with all of the most advanced and effective options available to help gay men become parents, and will develop a customized treatment plan to meet your special needs.
You should begin this process by first checking with your insurance carrier to determine whether or not you need a referral from your primary care physician to see a reproductive endocrinologist (a physician who is specially trained in reproductive medicine). Once you have completed this step, you should contact GayParentsToBe to schedule a new patient appointment.
As we focus on your success, our goal is to make sure that your treatment experience is as comfortable and convenient as possible. Call us at 203-956-2266 to set-up an appointment or to ask us any questions you have about how we can help you have a baby.
