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.
** Texas law prohibits traditional surrogacy, in which the birth mother shares a genetic and biological link with the baby by providing her own eggs. **
