Hi all,

 

I'm new here and have a question regarding same-sex IVF treatment. My partner and I (male/male) are just beginning the process of speaking with clinics to discuss options, process, costs, etc.

 

All of it seems pretty straight-forward, but I've also talked to friends who mentioned clinics in the states that can take sperm from both males so basically the baby would carry both our DNA.

 

Is this true? And does anyone have any insight/recommendations around this? Who I can speak with, etc?

 

Thank you!

Hi Kevin,

I don't know how much research you've done on this, but from the articles I found it seems this option is still a way off.
