LGBTQ+ Family Building Options
At RADfertility we welcome all families. With a variety of treatment options for LGBTQ+ couples, we are happy to support them on their family building journey. These include options for same-sex female couples, same-sex male couples, and those who need a gestational carrier (surrogacy) to achieve parenthood.
Options for Same-Sex Female Couples
Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) with donor sperm is a fertility treatment which inserts sperm directly into the uterus.
Reciprocal IVF with donor sperm offers multiple ways that both females can be part of the pregnancy process; one partner can produce the eggs, and the other partner can carry the pregnancy. IVF treatment involves taking a series of medications to stimulate egg production in the female. Eggs are then retrieved from the ovaries and fertilized in our IVF laboratory. An embryo is then transferred into the female partner who will carry the pregnancy.
Options for Same-Sex Male Couples
Our PreciousEggs Donor Egg Program in conjunction with a gestational carrier provides a great opportunity for male couples to build their family. PreciousEggs allows patients to utilize fresh or frozen donor eggs. Once you select the donor eggs that are right for you, they will be fertilized in our IVF laboratory. An embryo is then transferred into the gestational carrier.
Supporting the LGBTQ+ Community
At RADfertility, we celebrate diversity and offer an array of family building options because all families are precious. We are a proud sponsor of the annual Delaware Pride Festival on Saturday, October 2, 2021 in Dover.
Delaware Pride is dedicated to promoting platforms for expressing diversity and creating a more visible and united LGBTA community. Delaware Pride sponsors and promotes cultural, social, educational, and recreational events.
