Third party reproduction refers to the use of donor egg (oocyte), donor sperm and/or gestational carrier services. It can make pregnancy possible for individuals and couples who might otherwise not have options for having a child.
Texas Fertility Center provides a variety of donor services – including an in-house donor egg program, which allows us to retain control over the screening process. Our fertility specialists identify good candidates for donor services during infertility testing and treatment.
Who could benefit from donor services?
Gestational surrogacy (a.k.a. gestational carriage):
** Texas law prohibits traditional surrogacy, in which the birth mother shares a genetic and biological link with the baby by providing her own eggs. **
