Female patients with ovaries but no uterus might be needing to use a gestational carrier. This may also be an option for female patients, who shouldn’t become pregnant out of an existing and serious health problem. In this case, the female patient uses her own egg. It is fertilized by the male’s sperm and the embryo is placed inside the carrier’s uterus. The carrier will not be related to the baby and hands over him or her to the parents at birth.
