Shared maternity or reciprocal IVF

Reciprocal or lesbian IVF is a fertility option for same-sex couples who want to start a family. It involves the reception of oocytes from the partner, which means that one woman contributes the egg cell and the other carries the pregnancy to term. Using donor sperm is necessary in every reciprocal IVF procedure.
