Fertility treatments for lesbian couples
In most cases, couples agree upon which partner will get pregnant. This may be the result of a personal preference or a medical condition. Additionally, some couples opt to alternate carrying their following pregnancies. A hysterosalpingogram (HSG) will be performed on the partner who will carry the pregnancy in order to assess the health of the uterus and fallopian tubes as well as to measure hormone levels in the blood.
Here are fertility treatments for lesbians;
1. Sperm donation
You may need to choose a sperm donor. You can request your fertility doctor to help you find a sperm bank and help you with the selecting process. The alternative is to employ a recognized sperm donor, who can be a friend or relative who is not a direct descendant of the egg source. Whatever choice you select, we can help you along the way and provide assistance.
2. Intrauterine insemination
The donor sperm might be utilized during intrauterine insemination if the results of the hormonal tests and hysterosalpingogram are good. During this process the sperm is delivered directly into the carrier’s uterus through a tiny catheter that enters the cervix.
IVF for lesbians is a little more difficult due to the fact that the cycle might happen in a few different ways .The IVF cycle might go through in a fairly conventional way, with one spouse going through the full process while using donor sperm.
Some couples choose for this arrangement, with one spouse supplying the egg and the other carrying the child. Both spouses will go through testing and receive fertility-enhancing drugs. The spouse whose eggs will be donated will also go through the egg retrieval process. When the embryos are ready, they will be implanted into the uterus of the other spouse after the eggs have been inseminated with donor sperm.

Gay men can use surrogacy or a gestational carrier as their fertility option. A gestational carrier is an unrelated woman who carries a pregnancy for another couple. While a surrogate is a woman who provides both the egg and the pregnancy. You could also use a known person as your gestational carrier.
The IVF treatment cycle will start after you have determined a gestational carrier, an egg donor, and the sperm donor. The egg donor must take the pre-cycle and cycle injectable drugs before the cycle’s first stage may begin. When the donor is prepared for egg retrieval, the eggs are taken out and fertilized with the selected sperm in a lab. The resultant embryos will continue to grow in the laboratory and then be implanted into the gestational carrier a few days later.
