Family-Building for Lesbian Couples and LGBTQIA+ Women

For over 20 years, RMA of New York has been committed to supporting LGBTQIA+ couples and individuals on their fertility and family-building journeys. Lesbian couples, couples with two egg providers, or egg-producing individuals who would like to achieve pregnancy have two main treatment paths: intrauterine insemination (IUI) and in vitro fertilization (IVF). IVF can be completed by pursuing either standard IVF or Co-IVF (reciprocal IVF). Our physicians work with you to determine which treatments will best meet your fertility and family-building goals.

    Co-IVF / Reciprocal IVF

    Preserving your eggs now allows you to take control of your options later.

    Eggs are combined with sperm in the laboratory to create embryos, which are then cryopreserved for future use.

    Egg Donor Conception

    An egg donor will donate eggs to enable another woman to become pregnant. The egg recipient may be the female patient or a gestational surrogate.
