Here at Reproductive Health Group, we believe that every person should have the opportunity to conceive a child, regardless of whether or not they are in a relationship.
That’s why we believe in providing a range of treatment options that can help singles, or people in same sex relationships, to achieve their pregnancy goals.
What are the treatment options?
There are several treatment options that we have available for singles and same sex couples which will suit the current situation of many individuals.
Donor sperm is incredibly useful in situations where a little assistance may be needed to achieve pregnancy. This donated sperm can either be frozen, or produced and prepared in our specialist laboratory on the day of treatment.
We can help single women to reach their pregnancy goal, by using a sperm donation. This donation can be given from either an anonymous or known eligible male.
This donation will be paired with our excellent intrauterine insemination (IUI) or In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) treatments, meaning that the woman can easily achieve pregnancy without a partner.
A sperm donor for gay couples is also a great option, as it allows women in same-sex relationships to conceive a child that is partly genetically connected to them. This sperm can either be used in IUI treatment or IVF, to accomplish a successful pregnancy.
Gay men can also receive help from a sperm donation, paired with other treatments. This may help the couple to achieve if neither partner is producing eligible sperm, or would simply rather not use their own.
Reciprocal IVF (partners’ eggs)
Reciprocal IVF is a perfect option for two women in a same sex relationship, who wish to both play a part in the conception of their baby.
This process involves fertilizing the egg of one of the partners using donor sperm, and transferring the embryo to the second partner. Using this method will mean that both women are involved in the birth of the child.
Surrogacy can be used to help conceive in several situations.
It is incredibly useful for helping two men to start a family, as it allows for same sex pregnancy to take place.
Surrogacy can also be used to help a single woman who may be unable to conceive or carry a child herself for any reason. We can also help women in same sex relationships to achieve a family this way, if necessary.
One of the men in a same sex partnership can donate their sperm to fertilize an egg, whether this be the surrogate’s egg, or one donated from another woman. We will then place the fertilized egg inside the surrogate and she will carry it for the couple.
