Same-sex pregnancy options
If you are a same-sex female couple looking to become pregnant, there are various treatments available to you. If you decide to come to us for an initial consultation, we will work closely with you to discuss everything from medical history to your future plans, and decide, together, which treatment suits you and your family best.
Using donor sperm
At Zita West Clinic, we will guide you entirely through the process of finding donor sperm. It can be obtained from the UK or abroad, and we will offer regular fertility counselling sessions to talk through the process and make sure all legalities are met. As with everything we offer, our doctors are always available to answer any questions you may have.
Common questions about same-sex IVF
Is there anything different about IVF for same-sex couples?
The only difference between IVF for same-sex couples and for opposite sex couples is the need to find donor sperm. This may add a bit of time onto the overall process, due to having to both obtain and discuss the legalities of donor sperm, but once this is all in place, the process is identical as for any other couple.
How much does IVF for same-sex couples cost?
The IVF treatment for same-sex couples costs exactly the same as for opposite sex couples. Prices for a round of IVF start from £4,110, and any additional therapies will add onto this. Obtaining donor sperm may incur an extra cost, but this would depend on your individual situation.
Can I hear from a real couple who have used this treatment?
We have plenty of client testimonials from a wide variety of patients. Whether you are thinking about IVF, IUI, or even egg freezing, we are very proud to hear what our previous patients say about their experience at Zita West Clinic.
