We are proud to help couples and individuals achieve their dream of creating a family with the assistance of fertility treatments, regardless of marital status or sexual orientation. After an initial consultation and diagnostic testing, your physician will meet with you to review options and develop an appropriate protocol that works for you.
Heterosexual couples who want to start or complete their family undergo diagnostic testing and can undergo a variety of infertility treatments based on the test results.
Single women can come in to check their fertility health with a fertility assessment or explore egg-freezing options. For women interested in starting a family on their own, they can undergo intrauterine insemination (IUI) or in vitro fertilization (IVF) with donor sperm.
Lesbian couples have the option of undergoing intrauterine insemination (IUI) or in vitro fertilization (IVF) with donor sperm in order to start or grow their families. In some cases, reciprocal IVF is performed in which one partner’s eggs are fertilized with donor sperm and placed in to the other partner’s uterus to carry the pregnancy.
Single men who are interested in pursuing parenthood can move forward a gestational carrier (surrogate) using their sperm and an egg donor. Another option is embryo adoption and a gestational carrier.
Gay males attempting to start or grow their families, require an egg donor. Gay men can go through a donor egg agency, or use a known donor who has gone through all the necessary FDA screening and was determined to be fit to donate her eggs. They will also require a gestational carrier, which can be found using a known gestational carrier or a surrogacy agency and will require clinical evaluation prior to treatment.
Transgender men and women have the option of undergoing fertility preservation treatment prior to their transition. To learn more, please schedule a consultation with one of our physicians to fully understand your options.
