Can Oregon Reproductive Medicine help gay and lesbian couples with pregnancy? There are a growing number of gay and lesbian couples who are looking for options when it comes to pregnancy and starting a family of their own. Oregon Reproductive Medicine has many options for all types of couples looking to have children. The ORM third-party reproductive team has a proven track record of success when it comes to navigating the many options in achieving a healthy, full-term pregnancy. ORM’s experts will guide you through choices like selecting an egg or sperm donor, or finding a gestational surrogate to meet your pregnancy and family goals.
Pregnancy Options For Lesbian Couples
Lesbian couples will (in most cases) need to find a sperm donor. A couple can procure sperm from a male friend or family member, or chose donated sperm through a sperm bank. Additionally, a lesbian couple will need to decide on which one will be carrying the pregnancy, or if the help of a gestational surrogate is needed. Eggs can be fertilized using in vitro fertilization (IVF) or artificial insemination (IUI).
Pregnancy Options For Gay Couples
Gay men looking to begin a family will need to find both an egg donor, and a gestational surrogate (or gestational carrier) to carry the pregnancy to term. The eggs can be fertilized by either male (or a combination of both), or a selected third-party via in vitro fertilization or artificial insemination.
