Information for Single and Gay (LGBT) Patients
Every year, thousands of single, Gay and Lesbian patients attempt fertility treatment in order to start a family. This process can require complex reproductive procedures and the involvement of multiple third-party agents like surrogacy agencies, donor egg agencies and sperm banks, and reproductive attorneys. At IVF New Jersey, we’ve streamlined the process to bring all the pieces together in order to make your journey toward building a family as easy and successful as possible.

Options for Lesbian or Single Women
We offer numerous options for single and Lesbian patients wishing to conceive. It may be as simple as intrauterine insemination (IUI) using a donor sperm sample of your choice. For women with diminished ovarian reserve or tubal or pelvic factors, in vitro fertilization (IVF) can provide another option towards fertility.
Lesbian couples may also choose to have one woman provide the eggs while her partner carries the pregnancy. In this scenario, one partner undergoes ovarian stimulation and surgical removal of her eggs (IVF), while the other partner’s uterus is prepared for embryo implantation.
Options for Gay or Single Men
Gay and single men can build a family using reproductive techniques offered at IVF New Jersey. The combination of in vitro fertilization using donor eggs and embryo transfer into a gestational carrier gives our patients the opportunity to have their own biological children while taking advantage of some of the highest clinical pregnancy rates in the country. We offer our own pool of donors here at our center, or can provide you with a list of egg donor agencies that we’ve worked with successfully in the past. We will also do the medical and psychological screening on the gestational carrier of your choice, and can refer you to Gestational Surrogacy resources to assist in your search.
Some of these treatments require a consultation with a Reproductive Attorney and psychological evaluation. We can provide you with referrals to highly experienced professionals in this area who deal with third-party reproduction every day.
