    1. Hello, my wife and I need some guidance on infertility treatments. We are a female couple and think that we don’t have any medical issues. How should we proceed?

      • Hello Gabyy,

        There are several options for the LGBTQ+ community to create a family. Depending on your want and needs physicians will recommend a fertility treatment or another. Generally for two females, there are two options: Conventional IVF with a sperm donor, in which one of you goes thru the IVF process and gets pregnant with an embryo created with donor sperm, or Reciprocal IVF which consists on extracted the eggs of one of you and transferring the embryo created with donor sperm to the other couple component to carry the pregnancy.

        I recommend you read the following article in which you will learn the different options you have: Third-party reproduction.

        I hope everything goes well,

        All the best
