IVF For Lesbians

At Care, we believe that Family is for Everyone, and we’ve got a long history of supporting LGBTQ+ families.

When you're starting out

What options do Care have for lesbian couples?

We will advise all our female couples on the best options for their treatment. Our dedicated teams will support you and your partner on your journey to create your family.

If you’re interested in fertility treatment, there are a few things we might suggest:

Whether you have already found your sperm donor or need help with where to start your selection process, Care clinics have dedicated sperm donation teams to ensure you and your partner are guided and supported in this important decision.

At the most fertile point in your cycle, the donor sperm is concentrated in a centrifuge and a drop of fluid containing the sperm is then passed through the cervix - millions of sperm are released into the uterus. There is no egg collection involved in IUI, meaning that there is no invasive procedure and sedation is not required.

IVF may be needed or chosen as part of your treatment options for you and/or your partner. This treatment will be discussed with you both by the Care teams.

If you choose IVF treatment, one of you can be the egg donor and your partner can receive the embryo and carry the pregnancy– allowing you as a couple to share the experience and journey. Our doctor’s will ensure that both of you are informed of what is involved with this treatment option.
