Family Building Options for Singles

Written by The Fertility Center on . Posted in Infertility Issues

Traditionally, starting a family required a man and a woman to engage in sexual intercourse, and the intended mother would carry the baby. With advancements in reproductive medicine, however, there are more options for single people to start family building on their own. Check out the options for single adults.

Non-traditional Family Building

The World Health Organization is offering a little help to non-traditional families by altering the definition of “infertility.” A new proposal will allow single men to raise children from a surrogate mother, and allow the condition “infertility” to include:

  • Singles who wish to start a family without a partner
  • Relationships that cannot result in offspring, like gay and lesbian couples

As a result, more single individuals and gay couples now have access to fertility treatments options that will help them begin their family building.

“I want to start a family, but I’m single.”

Family Building Options for SinglesSingle and Gay Men

Single men and gay couples can start their family through the help of surrogacy and egg donation. Family building with in vitro fertilization requires the intended father’s sperm, a donor egg and a gestational carrier. The egg donor and surrogate can sometimes be a family member or friend, but a lot of the time, people will find assistance from a third party parenting agency.

Single and Gay Women

Single women and lesbian couples
can find reproductive assistance through artificial insemination or in vitro fertilization with donor sperm. Donated sperm can be from a family member or friend, or it can be from a sperm bank.

Many couples wish to include both partners in the conception process. An advanced procedure allows for one woman to provide the eggs, while the other partner carries the pregnancy.
