Advanced Reproductive Fertility Center believes that every person who wants to be a parent should have the choice to do so. Therefore, we work with all types of families. Thanks to modern medicine, there are many ways to create the family you have dreamed of with your partner. Our Rockford, IL, clinic provides a welcoming environment and guides you through the fertility process. When you are ready to start a family with your spouse, there are plenty of effective LGBTQ fertility options available.

LGBTQ Fertility Options for Cisgender Females

There will be many decisions lesbian women need to make when they are considering their LGBTQIA family planning in Rockford, IL. Often, the first thing to consider will be who is planning on carrying the pregnancy, whose egg is being used, and whose sperm is being used. Once you decide on these factors, Advanced Reproductive Center can help make your preferred combination happen.

At the most basic form of lesbian fertility treatment, women must obtain donor sperm to create a successful pregnancy. Some women may use intrauterine insemination with donor sperm. This sperm can come from either an anonymous donor or the male family member of their partner. Others may choose to extract one of their eggs, fertilize it with donor sperm, and implant it in the other partner’s uterus. Whatever your preference, Advanced Reproductive Center is available to assist with the egg collection, intrauterine insemination, in vitro fertilization or other necessary procedures. We can also help you with finding pre-screened donor eggs, donor sperm, or surrogates as needed.

LGBTQ Fertility Options for Cisgender Males

For male partners, fertility assistance at an LGBTQIA fertility center in Rockford, IL, will need to involve both a donor egg and a surrogate to carry the embryo. You can choose between traditional surrogacy. This process involves inseminating the surrogate mother’s egg. The alternative is gestational surrogacy, which entails a doctor implanting a donor egg into the surrogate’s uterus. This lets you have the option of using your preferred blend of egg donor and surrogate.

At Advanced Reproductive Center, we partner with Graceful Conception, which is an exclusive frozen donor egg organization. This organization allows gay males to get donor eggs for a more affordable price, and they can choose from a variety of high-quality donor eggs. We can also assist with collecting eggs from a specific donor if you want to use the eggs of a female friend or your partner’s female family member.

LGBTQ Fertility Options for Additional Genders

We recognize that not all people are strictly cis-gendered males or females. Therefore, we have some other options to consider depending on your situation. If you or one of your partners is transgender, there are plenty of great types of LGBTQIA family planning in Rockford, IL, to consider. For those who are planning on exploring surgical treatment that may remove testicles or ovaries, we have egg and sperm freezing. This process allows you to save reproductive material to start a family later on. When you are ready, we can help you with in vitro fertilization, donor matching, or surrogacy to create your child.

Intersex individuals frequently have fertility issues due to their unique hormonal levels and reproductive systems, but counseling at an LGBTQIA fertility center in Rockford, IL, can help. We can discuss your situation and help you find options that allow you to begin your family. Depending on your type of intersexuality, treatment may involve anything from hormonal supplements to assistance from a surrogate.
