What Are Our Fertility Options As a Lesbian Couple?

What Are Our Fertility Options As a Lesbian Couple?

Having a baby together is an exciting experience. Thanks to advances in medicine, you have many options today that weren’t available in the past.

Lesbian Couple Treatment Options

  • Intrauterine artificial insemination (using donor sperm)
  • In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) (where the partner carrying the pregnancy will be the genetic mother)
  • Reciprocal IVF (using the partner’s egg and donor sperm, which enables one woman to give the egg and gives the other woman the opportunity of carrying her partner’s pregnancy)
  • Donor sperm can be sperm from sperm bank, a friend, or family member

Some couples choose to have a relative (a brother or sister) of one person donate an egg or sperm; then they have this genetic material combined with the sperm or egg of the other partner. This way, the resulting child is genetically related to each partner.
