At the IVF Center, we believe sexual orientation or alternative lifestyle bias has no place in the field of practicing fertility medicine. Regardless of sexual orientation, our primary mission is focused on reducing every patient’s physical, emotional and financial toll during their quest to have a baby.
IVF using donor sperm has enabled many women to become single mothers. There is hope to have a baby of your own. The first step is to have a consultation at the IVF Center.
For Lesbian couples, one partner may choose to donate the egg and the other partner will carry the pregnancy. In order to accomplish this, in vitro fertilization is necessary, as the partner donating the egg would be stimulated with hormones and have her eggs harvested and fertilized and then transferred into the other partner’s uterus to carry the pregnancy. Sperm used to fertilize the eggs can be from a friend, relative or anonymous donor through a sperm bank.
Gay couples and single men can build their families with the combination of donor eggs, their own sperm and a surrogate. With the use of in vitro fertilization, donor eggs can be fertilized with sperm of the intended parent(s) and the resultant embryos can be transferred back into a gestational surrogate to carry the pregnancy.
