Reciprocal IVF & Fertility for Lesbian Couples

Your conception journey will require many of the same procedures as it does for heterosexual couples. It comes with a unique set of decisions, extra steps, and legal and financial considerations.

Oma Fertility is a fully-inclusive fertility clinic for everyone, including LGBTQIA+ couples. At Oma, we understand that every person's fertility requirements are different, which is why our team makes them a part of your care plan, built into our internal processes, and streamlined by your care advocate.

We’re on it.

We only partner with LGBTQIA+ welcoming sperm donor banks and other third-party services.
We coordinate with third-party services so there’s less on your to-do list.
Our staff is trained in protocols for processes common in same-sex fertility care, like in vitro fertilization (IVF) using donor sperm.

Fertility options for Lesbian Couples:

Sperm Donation
Fertility treatment options for lesbian couples may include IVF with sperm donation. Work with our sperm bank partner to select the donor. After your selection, our team will help you to handle the sample. Your care advocate will guide you through every aspect of this process.
Another fertility option for lesbian couples is IVF with ICSI. Your Oma team can help guide you in choosing one partner for both the egg retrieval and carrying the pregnancy, or in coordinating reciprocal IVF, in which one partner carries an embryo made with the other partner’s egg. You can opt for standard IVF or intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), during which a single sperm is injected into each egg.
Embryo Transfer
Lesbian IVF treatment can also involve embryo transfer. The doctor will meet with you to determine the best transfer plan. Quality embryos left over can be frozen for use in future IVF cycles.

Getting started

Whether it’s IUI or IVF for lesbian couples, every step of your fertility treatment journey should be clear and smooth—including the first step. Here’s how getting started works at Oma Fertility.

  • How does IVF work for lesbian couples?

    IVF for female couples will follow the same procedures as regular IVF, but will require a sperm donor and embryo transfer. Oma partners with LGBTQIA+-friendly sperm donor banks and other third-party services. Our staff has received training on protocols for common processes in same-sex fertility treatment.

  • How much does IVF cost for lesbian couples?

    The cost of IVF through Oma will be the same for female couples as it is for everyone else. However, as a female couple, there will be separate expenses associated with both the sperm donor and the embryo transfer. These expenses will be handled by third parties apart from Oma.
