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.
