In 2005, Spain approved gay marriage law, recognizing the right to adoption and establishing itself as the first country to carry out. Meanwhile, the Civil Code, which facilitated the use of assisted human reproduction lesbians also changed. All this has contributed to Spain is pointing to different country assisted reproductive treatments such as in the case of CLOTHING method, specific to lesbian couples.


How it works CLOTHING

Baby Receiving technical Egg Partner (clothes) for Assisted Reproductive specific to lesbians, is to conduct, first, a treatment for ovarian stimulation in one of the partners. The next step involves removing the eggs, which are fertilized in the laboratory of IVF with donor sperm. Once they develop into embryos transferred to the uterus of another woman. Thus, both women collaborate on motherhood: one brings the eggs and the other carries the pregnancy. It is thus a process in which both feel "involved and share responsibility", thus creating an important link in the relationship. Thus, the child belongs to the couple from the moment of birth.

Currently, CLOTHING method applies only to private schools as Zygos, as the Public Health excluded from fertility treatments both single women and lesbian, a fact widely reported by groups by the Youth Council of Spain or the National Federation Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT).
