For over three decades, Dr. Zouves has helped hundreds of patients within the LGBT community achieve the family of their dreams. Zouves Fertility Center is proud to support anyone for whom IVF is medically indicated regardless of his or her relationship arrangement.
Lesbians who are single or part of a couple can achieve a successful pregnancy with the assistance of donor sperm.
Lesbian couples can participate in the IVF process together, where one partner supplies the eggs and the other becomes the gestational carrier. It is also an option for the brother of the gestational carrier to provide sperm so that both female partners have a genetic contribution in a single cycle of IVF.
Gay men, single or part of a couple, can achieve a successful pregnancy with the assistance of donor eggs and surrogacy.
When in a partnership, we have found it is most common for both male partners to provide sperm for the eggs to be fertilized equally – with one embryo from each sperm provider being transferred into the gestational surrogate.
