IVF for single women

You don’t need to have a partner to start your family. 

If you’re a single woman hoping to become a parent, or looking to have a sibling for your child or children, there are a number of treatments and procedures we can offer single parents at CARE.

How can CARE help?

For single women, there are a few options:

Using a sperm donor

Some patients come to CARE having already found a donor, but if you need help we have a huge list of donors that you can choose from.  Once you’ve told us what you’re looking for, we’ll match you with someone who fits your profile as closely as possible. 

Intrauterine insemination (IUI)

IUI is a simple procedure where we pass a sperm sample into the cervix for insemination.  

IVF for single women

If IUI doesn’t work, if you’d prefer to try IVF, or if you have any fertility problems that we’ll need to help you with, we may advise IVF treatment.

Depending on your age and test results, we might also recommend additional tests or procedures such as pre-implantation genetic screening or CAREmaps.
