What are My Fertility Options?

Any couple or individual who wants to have a family should be able to achieve that dream. The latest fertility technology makes it possible for all LGBTQ+ people to build or grow their families. At InVia Fertility, we provide a warm, judgment-free space to speak with our specialists and determine the best treatment plan.

We offer a number of fertility services and treatments to help you grow your family. Some of the options we may recommend include:

In Vitro Fertilization for Same-Sex Female Couples

Many same-sex couples choose in vitro fertilization (IVF) to conceive a child. During this process, an egg is extracted and fertilized by donor sperm in our state-of-the-art laboratory. The resulting embryo is then reinserted into the uterus for development. We have a high level of skills and expertise that will be put toward helping you have a successful outcome.

Reciprocal In Vitro Fertilization for Same-Sex Female Couples

Some women choose an option called Reciprocal IVF, also known as shared Conception. Both partners get to be involved with the conception of their child. An egg from one partner is inseminated with donor sperm. If an embryo results, it is transferred to the other partner’s uterus who carries the pregnancy.

Intrauterine Insemination for Same-Sex Female Couples

Another fertility option LGBTQ+ individuals have is intrauterine insemination (IUI). This form of assisted reproduction involves inserting donor sperm directly into the uterus through a short, in-office procedure. Our specialists can provide resources to help you secure a sperm donor.

Egg Donor and Surrogacy for Same-Sex Male Couples

As part of our advanced fertility services, we have an egg donor facility for LGBTQ+ couples and individuals who are unable to conceive on their own. Our in-house donors are vetted thoroughly, including a questionnaire about family history and social habits, as well as undergoing psychological tests and counseling to ensure they are a good candidate to be a donor.

If you are also interested in a surrogate, we can help you find a match. When you use a donor egg or a surrogate, your protection and privacy are our top priority. We maintain confidentiality between our patients and donors and provide concierge services to support expecting parents and surrogates.

Preserve Your Fertility

Part of your fertility journey is protecting and preserving your fertility. Our fertility specialists can assist you by freezing and storing eggs through the process of cryopreservation. We'll keep eggs safely stored in our laboratory and carefully thaw them when you’re ready to have children.

Cryopreservation is a great option for LGBTQ+ individuals, including transgender men and women, who would like to have children someday after accessing gender-affirming care. Our specialists are here to review the entire process, answer any questions you have, and go over your options for reproduction. These options may include using donor sperm, eggs, or both to help you grow your family.
