IVF and Additional 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.
