Traditional surrogacy is that in which the gestational carrier provides her own genetic material to contribute to the creation of the embryo. In practice, this means that a simple artificial insemination may be sufficient.
However, Nevada law is explicit when it specifies that the gestational carrier cannot provide her eggs. It defines the gestational carrier as:
an adult woman who is not a mother of intention and who accepts a surrogacy agreement to gestate a child conceived using other people's gametes and not her own (NRS 126.580)
It is therefore considered risky to perform a traditional surrogacy as the agreement does not meet the legal requirements of the Nevada Statutes.
