This June, in honor of Pride Month, Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility is proud to celebrate our commitment to ensuring LGBTQIA+ couples can navigate their unique path to becoming parents. Our team understands that every family is different, and we are dedicated to providing personalized care for all patients who walk through our doors.
LGBTQIA+ Fertility Options
The first step in starting a family is understanding your fertility options. At Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, we offer a variety of services to help LGBTQIA+ couples conceive.
Same-Sex Male Couples
Male couples who want to grow their families can pursue fertility treatments such as in-vitro fertilization (IVF) with donor eggs.
Same-Sex Female Couples
For lesbian couples, we offer IUI with donor sperm as well as IVF using one partner’s eggs and donor sperm. If both partners wish to use their own eggs, we can help them conceive through separate IVF cycles and then transfer the embryos into the uterus of the partner who will carry the pregnancy.
Transgender and Nonbinary Couples
We understand that transgender and nonbinary couples may have unique fertility needs and we are here to help. There are various options, including cryopreservation of eggs or sperm before gender-affirming surgery. We also offer fertility treatments such as IUI and IVF for couples who wish to conceive with the use of donor sperm or eggs.
LGBTQIA+ Fertility Rights
Unfortunately, LGBTQIA+ fertility rights are not guaranteed in every state. Discrimination is still common when seeking fertility care. For instance, in many states, same-sex couples have limited access to fertility treatments such as IVF.
Pride Month is a time to reflect on how far we’ve come and rededicate ourselves to the fight for full equality. Every worthy person deserves the chance to become a parent if they want to.
The team at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility is committed to ensuring all patients have access to the fertility treatments they need, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. We are proud to be a part of the LGBTQIA+ community, and we will continue fighting for equality.
No matter what your family looks like, we are here to help you grow it in a way that is right for you. If you have any questions or would like to learn more about our fertility services, visit us on Facebook or Instagram. We are proud to serve the LGBTQIA+ community and look forward to helping you build the family of your dreams.
