Celebrate Pride Month with IVF FLORIDA

June 09, 2023

At IVF FLORIDA, we proudly support the LGBTQ+ community, not only during Pride Month but throughout the year. We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to become a parent, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity. For more than three decades, our fertility clinic has been providing a range of family planning options to gay, lesbian, and transgender couples, including IVF, IUI, egg donation, sperm donation, and gestational surrogacy. 

Supporting the LGBTQ+ community 
Join IVF FLORIDA at the upcoming Stonewall Pride Parade and Street Festival in Wilton Manors on June 17, 2023! As a proud supporter of the LGBTQ+ community, we'll be there to show our support and provide valuable family-building resources and information. Visit our table to say hello and discover how IVF FLORIDA can assist you in planning your family.

If you can't attend the Stonewall Pride event, IVF FLORIDA will be at the Men Having Babies 2023 Southern Surrogacy Options Conference in Fort Lauderdale on October 13-14. This is an excellent opportunity to get all the details about surrogacy in Ft. Lauderdale and the surrounding Southern areas and connect with providers who can assist you on your journey toward parenthood. 

Celebrating all kinds of families
According to the Family Equality Council, there are more than 15.9 million LGBTQ+ Americans. Among them, 63% of individuals aged 18 to 35 are considering expanding their families in the coming years. With advancements in reproductive technology, parenthood is now more attainable than ever for LGBTQ+ individuals and couples. 

Through the use of donors, gestational surrogates, and reproductive technology, members of the LGBTQ+ community can create the family they've always dreamed of. Discover the available options in honor of Pride Month!

Treatment options for female couples and individuals 
For female couples, Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) with donor sperm is a common and straightforward method to achieve pregnancy. This involves injecting sperm into the uterine cavity during ovulation. In cases where fertility isn't an issue, this is often the preferred treatment. Couples only need to decide who will carry the pregnancy and select a sperm donor.

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is another option for female couples, especially when IUI isn't successful or when both partners want to be involved in the conception and pregnancy. In reciprocal IVF, partners decide who provides the eggs and who will carry the pregnancy. Fertility medications stimulate the production of multiple eggs, which are retrieved through a simple outpatient procedure. The eggs are then fertilized with donor sperm in the lab, and the resulting embryos are transferred to the partner carrying the pregnancy. Discover which option suits you best by contacting us at 954-247-6200.

Family building for male couples and individuals 
Male couples and individuals can build their families through the use of donor eggs and a gestational carrier. The partners select an egg donor and decide who will be the biological father. After providing a sperm sample, the eggs are fertilized to create embryos. The couple can then find a gestational surrogate who will carry the pregnancy to term. Once selected, the best embryos are transferred into the surrogate's uterus. Alternatively, some couples choose to combine both partners' sperm for fertilization. Explore the many possibilities of building your family through advanced reproductive technologies like IUI and IVF.

Treatment options for trans couples and individuals
IVF FLORIDA offers fertility preservation and customized solutions for transgender individuals and couples, both pre-and post-transition. We understand that every patient's journey is unique, and our team of fertility specialists is dedicated to creating a personalized treatment plan that helps you achieve your dream of parenthood.
