LGBT Family Building Options

At Reproductive Associates of Delaware we welcome all families. With a variety of treatment options for LGBT couples, we are happy to support them on their family building journey. These include options for same-sex female couples, same-sex male couples, and those who need a gestational carrier (surrogacy) to achieve parenthood.

 

Options For Same-Sex Female Couples

Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) with donor sperm: also known as “artificial insemination,” is a fertility treatment that involves using a catheter to insert sperm directly into the uterus. Occasionally fertility medication is used to stimulate egg production and improve the chances of pregnancy.

IVF with donor sperm may be a better alternative to IUI for same-sex female couples. IVF with donor sperm offers the unique opportunity for both females to be a part of the pregnancy process; one partner can produce the eggs, and the other partner can carry the pregnancy. IVF treatment involves taking a series of medications to stimulate egg production in the female. Eggs are then retrieved from the ovaries and fertilized in our IVF lab. Once the eggs are fertilized, a resultant embryo is transferred into the uterus of the female partner who will carry the pregnancy. To learn more about our IVF options, visit our IVF Family of Services page.

 

Options For Same-Sex Male Couples

Our PreciousEggs™ Frozen Donor Egg Program in conjunction with a gestational carrier provides a great opportunity for same-sex male couples to have children. Our PreciousEggs™ program allows patients to utilize frozen donor eggs at 1/3 to 1/2 of the cost of traditional fresh donor egg programs. Once the eggs are selected, they are fertilized in our IVF laboratory with either male’s sperm. A resultant embryo is then transferred into the uterus of a gestational carrier.
