In this blog post, explore the various pathways and resources Complete Fertility offer to same-sex couples. Advancements in fertility treatments have opened up a world of possibilities for same-sex couples to build their families. 

Discover your options:

Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)

Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a common and accessible fertility treatment for same-sex female couples. This procedure involves the placement of prepared sperm into the uterus, increasing the chances of fertilization. Complete Fertility offers an extensive selection of donor profiles, allowing couples to choose a donor who aligns with their preferences and values. The team at Complete Fertility provides expert guidance and support throughout the IUI process, ensuring couples have a smooth and positive experience. 

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)

In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a highly effective assisted reproductive technology. IVF involves stimulating the ovaries to produce multiple eggs, which are then retrieved and fertilized with donor sperm in a laboratory. The resulting embryos are monitored and then transferred into the uterus. Complete Fertility offers state-of-the-art IVF treatments, ensuring couples receive personalised care from a team of dedicated fertility specialists.

Reciprocal or Partner IVF

This increasingly popular partner IVF option allows both partners to be directly involved in the creation of their baby. 

Reciprocal IVF is an innovative and empowering fertility option available to same-sex lesbian couples. It allows both partners to actively participate in the conception and pregnancy process. This approach involves one partner undergoing ovarian stimulation, egg retrieval, and fertilization with donor sperm. The resulting embryos are then transferred to the uterus of the other partner, who carries the pregnancy to term. 


Complete Fertility understands the emotional challenges that come with fertility treatments. We offer counseling services to support same-sex couples throughout their fertility journey. These services provide a safe space to address any concerns, fears, or anxieties that may arise, ensuring that couples feel supported and empowered every step of the way. We offer a free and confidential counselling service for our patients considering fertility treatment with donor sperm to explore its implications. Counselling is available throughout your fertility journey with up to six counselling sessions included in your treatment package.
