What is the difference between reciprocal IVF and lesbian insemination?

By Sara Salgado.
Last Update: 02/08/2017

Reciprocal IVF is done via in vitro fertilization, that is, the woman who is going to carry the pregnancy undergoes ovum pick-up (OPU) surgery and embryo transfer (ET), with fertilization taking place outside her body.

In the case of IUI, one partner is inseminated with donor sperm, but fertilization occurs inside her body, without undergoing surgery for egg retrieval or ET.
