Category: Special - Pregnant After a Loss
Posted by Emilykingston » Jun. 21, 2018 4:46pm

Hi, I have logged in after so long. I hope everyone is doing good. I have an issue. I need your help with it. So there is this friend of mine. A male friend. He is gay. He recently got married like 4 months back. They are thinking to start a family. They only have surrogacy as an option. I was wondering if someone can help me with a clinic? I have heard Ukraine is great. But I have also heard Lotus in Ukraine does not cater to Gay couples. So I don't know where to go. Can anyone help me with this thing? I really wanna help him. He loves children. I wanna see him with his children.

Hey, I hope you're doing good. Ukraine has a lot more clinics other than the one you have mentioned. You and your friends should research on it and see if you can find any. It is amazing that surrogacy has enabled infertile as well as same-sex couples to have children. Previously no one could even imagine anything like this happening. It is sad that the clinic you have mentioned doesn't allow it. Same-sex couples now everywhere around the globe are given the same equal rights. Therefore, should be treated equally. I have heard a lot more complaints regarding this clinic and it really is worrying. One of my friends recently emailed them for certain details regarding the procedure. It was a matter of urgency and she was expecting a quick reply. However, the clinic did not respond for a month. Even when they did reply they didn't even answer her queries and directly asked for her details. Email is the first interaction and when that is this unprofessional you really start to question many other things. Anyways, there are many other clinics that you can look into so don't worry.

Congratulations to the couple married! I hope they're doing great. Starting a family is definitely the right decision they've made. And surrogacy is a great procedure too! Ukraine definitely does have some budget-friendly clinics. I'm sorry Lotus does not offer to gays. That's definitely sad. I've heard of other unprofessional traits of theirs too. I wonder why they're like this. Anyway, there are other better clinics definitely. If you'd like to know by name, I'd be happy to tell you. Wishing the couple all the best!

hey Emily Kingston!!! Why have you been disappearing for a long time? you didn’t inform anyone. Is everything ok with you? what’s your issue? I am eager to listen to it. yeah, we will definitely help you. the purpose of this forum is to help others who need help. We will help you as far as we can. Next battle is your own. You have to fight alone. I don’t have any idea about lotus. I think lotus doesn’t facilitate the gay couples. If it does, then something is wrong with their legal documents. Just get clarification before going for treatment. You can mail them but their response is slow.

Hi Emily! You're really a true friend for him. I really understand and appreciate your concern. Well, that's really discriminative, if that clinic is offering services to other genders. Anyway! Keep it up! I'm also having an IVF next month at a repro center in Kiev. So, yeah! They also happen to have surrogacy center. So, yeah! It's in Kiev. They provide services to everyone without any discrimination. So, yeah! I'd advise you to look into it. I hope it helps him. :)

Hey there, Emily! Good to see you back. I hope you're doing great. Congratulations to your friend. It's so cute that you're so concerned about him. Gay couples are like any other couple in the world so should be treated the same. I don't know why people can't accept them living in the 21st century! Anyway, surrogacy is definitely the right solution for them. It merely is a blessing by which every kind of couple can have a biological baby. Ukraine is said to be the best country in terms of fertility treatments. You should definitely look for a good clinic there. Choice of the clinic is the initial step but the most important one. Surf the internet and I'm sure you'll find a clinic with good customer reviews. I wish they have children soon. Lots of love and prayers for them!

Thank you for pouring in the valuable comments. I really appreciate it. I am gonna reply to each one of you as soon as I get time. I am shocked reading the comments. I mean I never thought the picture is as bad. This is a moment of truce. This clinic needs to answer us. Not catering to Gay couples was not acceptable. Though okay I get it. Most countries in our world today are still superstitious. Though the other horrible things I have read are so shocking. Things are getting out of hand here. They gotta reply to all these issues. They have to clear them. If they are not wrong. Because if they didn't. Then they are at fault.

Hey. I am so happy. Well in many countries there are no such laws for a gay couple. Well, Lotus don't deal with the homo couple. But also they are not reliable they don't care about anyone but their personal benefits. Adonis is another clinic. They are just like Lotus. I don't trust them at all. There is a clinic in Europe. They also find a healthy surrogate for the couple. I think they should give them a try. They are professional. They have skilful staff. They also take care of IPs. They provide them with all the facilities. I am so happy that you found a place to ask.

Hi girl. I am so happy that you are helping them. You chose the right place to ask. I think you should be aware of Lotus and Adonis clinic. I am happy that there are many others clinic that is reliable. My friend had a surrogacy from a clinic in Europe. They deal with a gay couple too. My friend was infertile because of which She choose it. Now they have a daughter. She just turned 9 months. She is so happy now. I think they should go to the same clinic too. I hope they will be parents soon. They are supposed and have right to have babies.

Hello. Congratulations to your friend. Hope he is doing well. Surrogacy is a blessing. He should go for it. And for this process, they should visit Europe. The staff there is satisfactory. They are attentive towards there work. I had also a baby through surrogacy. I visited Europe for this process. My husband assisted me a lot. I really extol him. Now I am enjoying motherhood. Motherhood is a blessing. I and my husband are very happy. I wish him best of luck.

Yes! You are right. It is really hard for the same-sex couples sometimes. They are not legally protected in many countries. They do really need some favour. Secondly, they have some issues with babies that they can not reproduce. Surrogacy really worked for them as they can have their genetic baby through surrogacy. Surrogacy has made their lives much easier and comfortable. A few couples are not in favour of surrogacy so it really worked for them. They should be aware of such processes. I would suggest them a clinic in Europe. They are having best services for homosexual couples as well. Best wishes.

Hi, I hope you are doing good. Emily! Good to see you back. Congratulation to your friend. It's so good that you are so concerned about him. Gay also have right to pass there life enjoying. Gay couples are like any other couple in the word so should be treated the same. We should respect them. I don’t know why people can’t accept them living in the 21st century. Anyway, you should go for surrogacy as the good infertility treatment. There is a good clinic in Europe. That is specialist in surrogacy treatment. Surrogacy is good success rate as compared to other infertility treatment. That is costly but reliable. You should look for the clinic there. Beware some of the looters also there. My friend faces bad experience there when she appointment in a clinic in Europe. The clinic appointed her but when she went there was not well clinic. Some clinic use reputation of other. I hope you will do well.

Hey Emileh. How are you doing? Hope so you are doing fine. Well, it's so nice of you to think about your friend problem. Dear, I think you should e her to go for surrogacy. Because I have read many success stories of gays couple having surrogacy. Also, I watched many videos regarding this. There are many good clinics there. And yeah please don't go for Lotus and Adonis. As I am an active member on different pages. I have read a dozen negative reviews about them. So it's better for you to look up to other clinics. Which are good for you. Hope so my words will help you. Best of luck.

Why would a clinic treat gay people differently? This is so disturbing. I know there are controversies circulating around about these clinics, I also want to mention this clinic called Lotus. A similar experience happened to me. Your review may save many lives. Because they are generating fake profiles and fake diagnosis of the clients. Such a horrible thing to do is into a clinical profession. Yeah, research well before signing paperwork with anyone. It is shocking that they are just willing to take the money and that is it. So basically tell your friend to be careful if he is opting for a treatment. Research thoroughly and then make a decision.

Hi Emily, Congratulations to your friend on getting married. Well I had heard about Lotus clinic there. But my own experience was very bad with them. So i will suggest you to go for any clinic except Lotus. For me the staff behavior matters as much as the clinic medical excellence. So dont fall for them please. Good Luck!

I think you should search around more in Europe. I found a clinic there too. I went there for surrogacy. It was so good that I instantly decided to do the procedure there. The doctors were great. They cleared all my questions and doubts. Now, I will be blessed with a pair of twins. I would recommend this clinic to everyone.

Thank you all. Your comments mean a lot. Though I am still confused. I haven't got a name for the clinic. You just said search Europe. I found Adonis. I emailed them. I haven't gotten a reply yet. So again I back to where I was. I need help. I want some solid suggestions. I want names. If anyone of you has had experience. It will mean a lot. I want you to mention a name. I don't want to end up emailing a clinic that does not bother replying. It is just wasting my time. Please help me. I am so frustrated at the moment.

Hi! Hope you are doing great. It is a good thing that your friend is thinking about the surrogacy. I think it is a fit option to complete their family. Bad to hear about your experience with the clinic. It is very unethical. This is not the way to deal with clients. I have already heard many bad experiences of the people about the same clinic, But it is not a thing to be worried. There are still many best clinics in Ukraine for surrogacy. They are well-reputed clinics with the high success rate. It is a positive thing that you are worried about your friend. I hope you will find a good clinic in Ukraine for it. Many families completed by the surrogacy. It is the best option for the people who cannot complete their families otherwise. My all best wishes to your friend. God bless you.
