Fertility Assistance for Same Sex Couples
For LGBT couples, we can perform IVF treatment using either an egg, sperm, or embryo donation depending upon your unique needs.
Pacific Fertility is an internationally known IVF treatment center. We are proud of our role in the birth of more than 4,000 babies in the U.S. and on six continents. Because of our extensive LGBT experience, our doctors and staff are well prepared to care for the specific needs of gay and lesbian patients. Our patients do not have to worry about educating the clinic about LGBT issues. We are able to assist you with all fertility-related complexities unique to the LGBT community.
IVF and Other Fertility Treatment Options
In vitro fertilization (IVF) success rates have greatly improved through the years. Advanced technologies now offer new tools to increase the likelihood of pregnancy resulting in a healthy baby.
In standard IVF, harvested eggs are fertilized with sperm in our lab, and the resulting embryos are transferred to the uterus of the patient. Many heterosexual couples are able to conceive this way despite issues with ovulation or sperm that cause infertility.
For LGBT patients, IVF can be accomplished with the assistance of egg donation, a sperm donor, or in some cases, donated embryos. For male and some female couples, a surrogate to carry the baby is also part of the process.
Pacific Fertility Center offers LGBT patients assistance with every aspect of the quest to form a family. We can help you locate and select appropriate candidates for egg or sperm donation or surrogacy, and our physicians carefully screen chosen candidates to rule out medical or psychological problems. Female patients can undergo artificial insemination, IVF, or use a surrogate. Many male clients enjoy being part of the procedure as a surrogate receives transfer of their fertilized embryos.
Fertility Treatments for Same Sex Couples
Many patients take advantage of our state-of-the-art options to increase the chance of creating the family of their dreams. To boost the rate of conception for some clients, we offer intrauterine insemination (IUI) and intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), which are more targeted methods of IVF.
Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis and screening (PGD/PGS) are also available. These tools help patients to eliminate worries of genetic and sex-based disease transmittal. Some have other reasons for wishing to take advantage of gender selection opportunities.
