Gay men

Becoming a father

There are now a number of ways that gay men can become a father. This could be by becoming a sperm donor either anonymously or as a 'known' donor which would be for a female friend or relative. Surrogacy treatment is becoming more popular among same sex male couples through using a surrogate mother and sometimes an egg donor too. Here at the LWC Wales we can help you to become a father through these means. Please follow the links on the left of this page for more information on how we can help.

The London Women's Clinic is proud of its relationship with gay campaigning group Stonewall and in conjunction with them we have produced a guide for gay dads. Follow the link to the left of this page to request your copy.

Known sperm donation

You may have a single female or lesbian friend who would like you to become a sperm donor for them. This would make you a 'known' donor. The clinic can help you and your female friend(s) to have treatment here at the LWC Wales. For more information on becoming a known sperm donor, click here

Gay Surrogacy

There are two types of surrogacy available for gay men wishing to have a baby: the first in which an egg donor provides eggs which are fertilised with the sperm by IVF and ICSI and the embryos are then transferred to the surrogate mother for pregnancy and delivery (known as 'host surrogacy'); and the second in which the surrogate herself provides the egg which is fertilised with the sperm by IVF and ICSI. It is important to note that only one partner’s semen sample can be used for treatment.

We recommend that you seek the appropriate legal advice prior to your treatment, this hopefully prevent any future difficulties arising regarding parenthood and citizenship. Counselling is attended as a routine part of any surrogacy arrangement with ongoing support available.  All surrogacy cases undertaken by the London Women’s Clinic have been approved by the clinic’s Ethics Committee.  

Gay Dad's Guide

The London Women's Clinic has developed a strong relationship with gay campaigning group Stonewall and is proud to have sponsored a guide for gay dads, which offers useful information for gay men looking to become a father. The guide covers all the options available for gay men looking to become a father from adoption and fostering through to co-parenting and donating sperm. To receive your free copy please click here.
