Maternity shared method allows a homosexual couple to have children: one is the biological donor and the other, gestate a baby.

The entry into force of the current law on Assisted Reproduction 14/2006 has been a change, which has resulted in a series of developments both in science and social.

Thus, all women over 18 years and with full capacity to act, you will be receiving and user of this law, provided it have given their consent freely, consciously and expressly regardless of marital status and sexual orientation.

These changes have allowed access to maternity couples consisting of two women and so when a couple of women motherhood raises can use two types of techniques: artificial insemination with donor sperm or the shared maternity (CLOTHING ).


The process of IVF

The CLOTHING method consists in obtaining eggs from one of the spouses for the use of anonymous donor sperm, embryos obtained, to be gestated by her partner. With this procedure there will be a biological mother and another that gestate embryos.

For this, the couple must undergo a cycle of IVF: one of the women will undergo a hormonal treatment to obtain eggs and the other endometrial preparation for the reception of embryos.

The chances of success of this technique are similar to those of a heterosexual couple and is conditioned largely by the age of the donor. When the age of the patients or the quality of the eggs difficult pregnancy, we can use oocyte donation from an anonymous or donor embryo adoption of other couples who have completed their reproductive cycle and who have donated these embryos to other couples.
