Here at West Coast Women’s Reproductive Center, we are passionate about helping everyone who wants to start a family to be able to do so. We fully support lesbian parents and couples, and it is our goal to find the best possible solution for our patients and their partners to help achieve their dream of having a child.
There are several different options available for helping lesbian parents to have a child together. Options include the assistance of a known or anonymous sperm donor using artificial insemination, also referred to as IUI. This is a simple process that is performed during the natural menstrual cycle. The procedure involves delivering the sperm directly to the uterus through the use of a thin catheter. For older women looking to conceive, and who may have lower fecundity rates, fertility drugs may be recommended in order to improve their odds of conception.
Another more innovative option for lesbian couples is a process known as co-IVF. During this process, one woman may choose to take injectable medications to produce the eggs, and the other woman may choose to be the gestational parent by using her uterus for the pregnancy.
Our physicians are happy to serve you throughout each step of your fertility journey. This includes providing you with a personalized treatment plan that will meet your needs and align perfectly with your personal lifestyle. Factors that play a role in determining your personalized treatment plan are based on age, FSH level, AMH level, and AFC. During a consultation and discussion with one of our physicians, we will work with you one-on-one to determine the best option for achieving your desired results.
