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

    Co-IVF / Reciprocal IVF

    If you and your partner are both interested in being physically involved in the pregnancy process, co-in vitro fertilization (Co-IVF), also known as reciprocal IVF, may be an option for you. In co-IVF, one partner supplies eggs and the other partner carries the pregnancy.

Additional Treatment Options

  • Egg Freezing

    Egg Freezing

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

  • Embryo Freezing

    Embryo Freezing

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

  • Egg Donor Conception

    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.

  • Gestational Surrogacy

    Gestational surrogacy is a process in which an individual, who did not provide the egg used in conception, carries the pregnancy and gives birth to a baby for another person or couple.
