Single & Lesbian Mothers IVF
We are proud of being one of the first Northern California fertility clinics to provide In Vitro Fertilization and donor semen IVF treatments to single women and lesbian partners.
From the practical standpoint, the only difference between conventional In Vitro Fertilization and single women / lesbian couples’ IVF treatment is the need to use donor semen. This will most commonly be a frozen semen sample from a sperm bank. The rest of the treatment is identical to conventional In Vitro Fertilization.
Lesbian partners may decide that one partner will undergo the ovarian stimulation to provide the eggs, while the other partner will take medications to prepare her uterus for the implantation of her partner’s embryo. In this way, both partners contribute profoundly to their pregnancy.
