In the past, same-gender couples looking to start a family had to go through long, complicated adoption processes. Now, with modern reproductive techniques, same-sex couples can have children and share the joys of conception and pregnancy. At Reproductive Fertility Center we believe that everyone who wants to have a family should have the opportunity to have one. We pride ourselves in providing a safe, friendly environment to help same-gender couples of all ages achieve their dreams of parenthood.

LGBTQ+ Fertility Options

When considering fertility options for LGBT patients, there are many questions to be answered so that Reproductive Fertility can create a personalized plan for you and your family. For many LGBT parents, we understand that you do not suffer from reproductive issues, but rather need assistance bringing the sperm and egg together for fertilization. During your consultation, Dr. Saadat will walk you through the process in the safest, most natural and successful roadmap to childbirth.

What are Fertility for Gay Couples

For male couples who are looking to get pregnant, most commonly a gestational surrogate and/or egg donor is used to carry the baby. Depending on the results you are looking for, there are some questions to consider:

  • Who’s sperm will be used? 
  • Who will donate the eggs for fertility?
  • Who will carry the baby?

Based on your answers, Reproductive Fertility will guide you down each possible option. Then, we will perform IVF with an egg donor and gestational surrogate. Male couples can choose from the following treatment options:

  • Choosing an egg donor using one or both partners’ sperm and a surrogate
  • Choosing an egg donor using donor sperm and a surrogate

What are Fertility for Lesbian Patients

Lesbian couples looking to have a baby have similar questions they need to decide upon to dictate the fertility path we undergo. These are some of the things to consider:

  • Who will carry the baby?
  • Who’s egg will be used?
  • Who will provide the sperm?

Lesbian couples have a few additional options when it comes to the sperm donor and the egg that will be used. We provide the following fertility treatments for same-sex female couples attempting to start a family of their own:

Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) 

  • One of both partners are inseminated with donor sperm through intrauterine insemination, a minimally invasive procedure that increases fertility chances.

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)

IVF is an ART procedure that involves fertilizing a woman's eggs with sperm in a laboratory dish and transferring the resulting embryo to the woman's uterus with the aim of achieving pregnancy. For lesbian couples, this can be achieved via:

  • Eggs from one or both partners are fertilized using donor sperm and the resulting embryos are implanted into one or both partners.
  • Eggs are taken from one partner, fertilized using a sperm donor, and the embryo is implanted into a surrogate
  • Eggs from a donor are fertilized using donor sperm and implanted into one partner.
  • Eggs from a donor are fertilized using donor sperm and implanted into a surrogate.

Female couples can choose to know their sperm donors or look into autonomous donors selected from a sperm bank.
