In vitro gametogenesis

I have read an article and it was written there that new in vitro technology was researched as ability to give child genes of both parents. Now using surrogacy procedure one parent from same sex couple doesn't have ability to be genetically connected to a child. And sometimes it really causes a lot of problems. Think it will be good if in future these researches will bring positive and effect results and all same sex couples will be genetically connected with their babies.

It is very interesting as for me. Science is developing very quickly and as we see it brings results.
As I understood scientists didn't lead researches on people, animals only. And at this stage of research it is difficult to say whether it is good or bad method because we probably don't know which consequences it can have in future when for example, child is 14 years old. i have rather sceptical attitude to it.

In vitro gametogenesis

I am childless now but I have strong inner desire to be a father and I took a consultation in Gay surrogacy agency and there I saw a poster with this information :P But to tell the truth I didn't pay attention at this and now I regret that I didn't ask for more information. It is interesting research which can lead reproductive technologies to the other level. I can't imagine how it is possible to conceive a child just taking some other human cells.

Yoohoo :cheer: Interesting information. You mentioned that this technique wasn't tested on human, right? And when they will lead researches on human? And from which cells they are going to create egg or sperm??? Reproductive medicine is not my strongest side, so I don't understand completely how it is possible to do.

I am also not a scientist, so can also be wrong in my explanation. So, they just take some muscle cell and produce stem cell. These stem cells would then be used to create gametes. And then the process of conceiving ....I think. And these created sex cells will include your DNA. But I think that it will be rather expensive procedure and it will take a lot of time to test it on human. @Lanny where did you see this information?

I was consulted in Rainbow family agency, I just wanted to consult concerning the options I have a a single man. I am really willing to become a father. Maybe in future I will come back to them like an IP ;) I hope so. And what if parent is single...can he use this in vitro gametogenesis? Or it is option only for couples?

There is an option to use this procedure for single parents too. But as scientists say it is a big challenge to such child and such parent because when all genetic material is taken from one person it can cause unpredictable consequences. But who knows maybe there will be no bad consequences. Time will show. As for me it sounds like "making a clone" of yourself :P

Honestly, I don't see any problem, if a child will not be connected with one of partners genetically. It doesn't matter very much. Moreover, I think that it is not so important to have a baby even genetically connected with one of partners. If people really want to bring up s child, they don't pay attention to these factors.

After reading your post I searched the net and also read about that. I found out that IVG is the method, most advanced in mice, by which gametes are derived from pluripotent stem cells (capable of giving rise to several different cell types) or embryonic stem cells. IVG in humans could potentially allow for never-before used methods of procreation. Research suggests that whilst not yet advanced enough on human cells, IVG for reproduction may one day be possible in humans. As far as I can judge it isn't possible yet, but maybe once...
