LGBTQ+ Services near Crystal Lake IL

Everyone deserves a chance to grow their family, including LGBTQ+ couples and individuals. If you're interested in exploring family-building services around Crystal Lake, Illinois, you can find a skilled team of fertility specialists at an InVia Fertility center.   

Fertility Options to Grow Your Family   

There are many fertility treatment options for LGBTQ+ people to grow their families, whether they struggle with infertility or not. Our fertility specialists will work with you to develop a fertility treatment plan based on your family goals, health, and family history.   

Some of the common options for LGBTQ+ couples to build their family include:  

In Vitro Fertilization   

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is an option that many couples choose to conceive. During an IVF cycle, an egg is extracted and fertilized by your partner's or a donor's sperm in a laboratory setting. Our state-of-the-art lab will monitor the embryo's development, which will then be reinserted into the uterus for development and, hopefully, pregnancy.   

Reciprocal IVF  

If you and your partner both can get pregnant, reciprocal IVF is a fertility treatment option. This is also sometimes known as Shared Conception. Both partners get to be involved in the conception of their baby.   

An egg from one partner is used and fertilized with donor sperm. Then, if an embryo is ready and meets our standards, it is transferred into the other partner's uterus. This partner will carry the pregnancy.   

Intrauterine Insemination   

Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) is an assisted reproduction technology that involves injecting sperm directly into the uterus using a catheter during an in-office procedure. This increases the chances that insemination will occur.   

You can use a sperm donor that you find with the help of our team.   

Egg Donors and Surrogacy Options  

Some LGBTQ+ individuals and couples require sperm or egg donation in order to build their families. Our in-house donors are held to high standards and thoroughly vetted, including questionnaires on their family history and social habits. Psychological and physical tests are also completed to ensure they are a good candidate for donation.   

We can also help our patients find surrogates. Our team strives to maintain confidentiality for all parties. Concierge services are also available for expecting parents and surrogates.   

Are You Interested in Preserving Your Fertility?  

Fertility preservation is available for both cis and transgender people interested in having a family in the future. Some transgender individuals choose to undergo fertility preservation prior to completing some medical transition procedures.  

Cryopreservation is the process of freezing and storing your eggs. Our fertility centers will guide you through the process, including how to self-administer hormone injections and use donor sperm or eggs in order to grow your family. When you're ready to build your family, we will thaw your frozen eggs or embryos for implantation into you or a surrogate.
