Gay IVF Success Rates
RSC New England has a one hundred percent (100%) live birth success rate for our gay male couples.
IVF success rates recorded and published by the Society for Assisted Reproduction (SART) have little or no bearing on results for male couples (unless you will be using a relative or friend as your egg donor and/or carrier who is in her mid 30s or older and may have fertility issues).
Typically our gay couples use egg donors who are women in their mid 20s to very early 30s who are healthy without infertility complications. Similarly, a gestational carrier is used who is young and has had at least one prior pregnancy and live birth without complications.
