RMIA offers several family building options for LBGT couples. Couples who plan to start a family may opt to use assisted reproductive therapies whether or not one or both partners bear an infertility diagnosis. From providing guidance during the selection process of your donor and/or gestational carrier*, to coordinating your specific treatment plan — you will be in the hands of a dynamic team of experts in the field of advanced reproduction. RMIA offers several different treatment options to cover many of the challenges LGBT partners face. Among these treatments are:
- Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) with Donor Sperm
- IVF with Donor Sperm
- IVF with Donor Sperm and Donor Egg
- IVF with Gestational Carrier
- IVF with Gestational Carrier and:
- Donor Egg
- Donor Sperm
- Donor Sperm and Egg
- Reciprocal IVF for female couples – in this option, one partner provides the eggs, while the other carries the pregnancy
All donor and gestational treatment options, regardless of a couple’s sexual orientation require psychological consultation (performed offsite) and appropriate legal documents are strongly recommended. Our business office is able to offer assistance during your initial consultation to address these concerns.
*RMIA does not provide gestational carriers. Patients are responsible for obtaining their own carrier. This is usually a close friend or family member; however there are agencies that provide this service as an alternative source to patients considering this course of treatment.
