Inclusive Techniques for All Looking to Conceive

At Palm Beach Fertility Center, we are committed to providing inclusive and comprehensive fertility treatments to anyone looking to expand their family unit.

That’s why we offer LGBTQ+ fertility options at both our Boca Raton and Aventura clinics, so we can help you and your partner understand your choices.

Whether you’re currently weighing your options, ready to get started, or looking for advice, Palm Beach Fertility Center is here for you. For more information on LGBTQ+ fertility treatments and family expansion, don’t hesitate to contact us at 888.819.5177.

What Fertility Options Do LGBTQ+ Couples Have?

There are a lot of unique emotions that come with building a family through a same-sex or transgender partnership. At Palm Beach Fertility Center, we’ll help you through both the physical and mental aspects of beginning fertility treatments, whether you experience grief, gender dysphoria, or other struggles during the pregnancy and family-building process.

Our fertility specialists will do everything they can to help you and your partner choose the best fertility options for your specific needs and goals, so you can successfully grow your family. The LGBTQ+ fertility treatment options we specialize in are as follows:

Donor Eggs

Our donor egg program allows patients to conceive through a partner or surrogate, using an anonymous donor egg. Our donors are thoroughly evaluated and screened, so you’ll be receiving a healthy and viable egg to increase chances of conception.

Our donor egg program has been active since 1994 and has a 75% rate of successful pregnancies. Your fertility specialist will help you through the process of choosing the right egg donor and preparing your partner or surrogate for implantation.

Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)

With intrauterine insemination, donor sperm is combined with an egg, either in a laboratory or through artificial insemination, and then implanted in the uterus of the partner or surrogate hoping to conceive. Fertility medication will be prescribed to the carrier as a way to control the ovulation process and inseminate when most fertile.

Palm Beach Fertility Center partners with several reputable sperm banks to help you and your partner find the best match. Your fertility specialist will walk you through everything you need to know regarding choosing the right sperm donor and preparing for insemination.

Reciprocal In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)

Reciprocal IVF is a great fertility option for lesbian couples who both want to be involved in the conception process. With reciprocal IVF, one partner’s eggs are harvested and fertilized by donor sperm and then implanted into the uterus of the other partner.

The partner whose eggs are being harvested will receive fertility drugs to stimulate egg production, while the other partner will receive estrogen and progesterone replacement therapy to prepare the womb for implantation. This allows one partner to provide the DNA while the other partner carries the pregnancy.


Palm Beach Fertility Center has fantastic options for gestational carriers and surrogacy. Through our surrogacy program, parents can select from pre-screened gestational carriers who will be in constant communication with the parents in question throughout the entirety of the pregnancy and birthing process. Your fertility specialist can help you determine if surrogacy is the right option for you and your partner.

We provide support for both parents and surrogates, helping foster the right matches and working to meet everyone’s needs during each step of the gestational journey. There are many insemination and implantation options when it comes to surrogacy, which you will discuss in thorough detail with your fertility specialist.
