Our clinic have a clause in the contract that both partners sign when u do an IVF cycle that asks if u give permission for ur partner to use sperm/eggs or embryos in the event of one partner passing away. My DH and I have discussed it at the time we signed the contract and both agreed if anything happened the other one can use the eggs/sperm or embryos exclusively.
We already have a baby via IVF so the genetic blood link for us for future siblings is a significant factor.

An example of this scenario can be found here.
VicPark, my feelings about the woman you mentioned who couldn't move on was that she was very lonely. And while I felt for her I could not see how she could justify her stance and for the reasons you outlined. My DH and I are in the same position regarding posthumous use of sperm. It has nothing to do with holding me back but moreso with allowing me to move on.

19-11-2013 16:58 #117Just a quick question. Not only aimed at you. How would it work if your husband wanted to use the embryo. Would it be like a surrogate or *if* he found a new partner would she carry ? Just curious.
Reminds me of the game of Scruples. Good question!
And would the new partner want to carry?

Yep his new partner could carry one of our embryos or he could use a surrogate. It would b incredibly difficult to be the carrier of ur boyfriend/husbands dead wifes child but like others mentioned if she had fertility issues too then maybe. It would probably end up being a surrogate tho.

Well I am already pregnant with my 4th (DH's first) so 4 is enough.
