Trying to Conceive – Single Father by Choice
Support to Start a Family as a Single Father by Choice
If you are considering starting a family as a single father by choice, Northeastern Reproductive Medicine can provide you with support and options to become a biological dad. Our Vermont fertility clinic can provide family building tools to make your dream of fatherhood a reality.
A Vermont fertility specialist at NRM can build a customized plan using in vitro fertilization (IVF), egg donation and gestational surrogacy to make it possible for you to be a dad.
We help single men with fertility treatments
It is not uncommon for a single male to want to start or grow his family. The first step of an evaluation is to analyze your semen, which involves testing sperm count, activity (motility) and shape (morphology). We also will test for infectious diseases.
Single fathers by choice will rely on an egg donor, whom we can help locate for you. This could be someone known to you, or an anonymous donor. Our nursing team can help you identify a donor who is a good match, and that donor is screened by NRM’s fertility doctors to offer you the best chance at conception.
The egg donor goes through the IVF process, starting with taking medications to stimulate the growth of multiple eggs. One of our doctors will retrieve the eggs, and an embryologist will fertilize the egg with your sperm. The genetic blueprint of your child will come from you (the sperm provider) and the egg donor.
One resulting embryo will be transferred into the uterus of a different woman, the gestational carrier who will carry the pregnancy. Any remaining embryos can be frozen for later use. NRM partners with regional surrogacy networks in Vermont and New England, as well as a national network that can help match you to a gestational carrier.
