Many individuals in the LGBT community face unique challenges in building a family. Penn Fertility Care enthusiastically supports the reproductive needs of this community by offering a variety of reproductive services that will allow family building.
We take pride in helping same sex couples and transgender individuals and their partners become parents. We offer a variety of services including donor sperm insemination, donor egg and gestational carrier cycles. Single women and lesbian couples may consider the use of intrauterine insemination (IUI) or in vitro fertilization (IVF) for family growth. For gay couples, a gestational carrier (i.e., a woman who gives birth to a baby for another individual or couple) and an egg donor are necessary. The first step is to schedule a consultation with one of our physicians to discuss the available options and to make a plan that fits your specific needs best.
It's important to recognize that there may be legal challenges that can affect the rights of transgender or same sex parents. Our team works with reproductive lawyers to ensure that all legal and medical concerns are addressed for all of our patients.
