Reciprocal IVF has become a popular fertility solution for lesbian couples where each partner wants to be equally involved in the conception of their new baby. This solution is a fantastic way for both partners to establish a closer bond with their child, and an even closer bond with each other as well. With this solution, one partner supplies her eggs to be used for IVF, with the other carrying the baby through pregnancy. If both women are healthy and neither have fertility issues, then the couple can make the decision of which supplies the egg and which becomes the gestational carrier.
Intrauterine insemination, or IUI, is ideal in cases where only one female partner wants to be involved in the conception of the child, or if fertility issues require it. With this procedure, donated sperm is injected directly into the woman’s uterus to increases the chances of fertilization.
IVF is ideal for both men and women seeking to have a child whether with their own eggs and sperm, or that of donors. With this procedure, a woman’s eggs are extracted and a man’s sperm sample is retrieved to allow our doctors to manually combine them in a laboratory dish. Once fertilization has taken place, the embryo(s) is transferred into the uterus of the female partner or that of a surrogate mother.
Surrogacy allows gay men or women who are unable to carry a pregnancy to still have the child they desire. If you choose a surrogacy program, you can use your own sperm or egg, or choose to use genetic materials from donors. We are happy to offer any guidance you need along this journey as you make this very personal and important decision.
If you choose a fertility program that involves the donation of sperm or eggs from a donor or a surrogate mother, we want you to feel confident in your decision. When it comes time to choose a donor or surrogate, you will have access to our large database, which includes local Mexican Donors as well as travel Caucasian and Asian donors. All of our donors and surrogates have passed rigorous screening to ensure their health and safety and that of your new baby.
