At Yorkshire Fertility we welcome same sex couples and are happy to counsel and advise you on your options. If you want to have a family with a biological connection to one partner, you’ll need to have fertility treatment. On this page we have outlined the main options available for same sex couples.
Intrauterine insemination (IUI)
IUI or donor insemination is the main treatment for female couples who want a family and can also be used to impregnate a surrogate. You can have it with or without fertility drugs and the whole procedure is relatively quick and painless.
Surrogacy is the main treatment for male couples who want a family. It involves finding a surrogate who is prepared to carry and give birth to a child for you. You can either mix one partner’s sperm with the surrogate’s eggs or with donated eggs.
In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF)
IVF may be appropriate for female couples with fertility problems and can be used to impregnate a surrogate.
Using a Donor
You'll need to find a sperm or egg donor (or both) to use in your treatment. There are lots of options for finding a donor.
All of the above options can be discussed in more detail in clinic. Your treatment options are very personal to you and we will tailor your treatment to your needs. Please contact us to find out more or if you would like to be referred to the service.
