    1. Hi, I would like to know if this clinic is LGBT-friendly. My wife and I want to start with some treatment but we have bad experiences with clinics.

      • Hi ladylady765,

        Midwest fertility center has an LGBT section listed on their website. Depending on your needs and situation they will recommend one treatment or another. There is the possibility of both AI and IVF with donor sperm.

        If you are unsure of what treatment to get, I recommend you fill out our fertility report.

        I hope I have answered your question,

        Best regards.

    2. I have been at the clinic for a couple of months and I am quite happy with the treatment I am receiving, the doctor is quite attentive and the nurses are lovely, I would recommend it, for now, I will let you know how things go.
