Complete Fertility

Complete Fertility is proud to help same-sex couples realise their dream of completing their family. It's important to us that all couples and individuals feel comfortable and supported by our staff.

We have a number of options to help same-sex female couples on their journey to parenthood.

Donor Sperm

We have a dedicated, quality sperm donor programme to help you conceive using donor sperm. All of our sperm donors are UK-based healthy and fertile men who are screened in line with the HFEA’s strict regulations.

What treatment options are available to us?

IUI- Intrauterine Insemination or artificial insemination is a treatment where the donor sperm is inserted at the neck of the womb during the time of ovulation. This is good for young women or those with no history of fertility issues.

In vitro fertilisation (IVF) involves removing your eggs from your ovaries and fertilising them using donor sperm in a laboratory dish. The best quality fertilised egg, known as an embryo, is then placed back in your womb. Any other good-quality embryos that are left can be stored by us for future family building.

IVF with donor sperm and egg sharing -If you would like to donate some of your eggs to an anonymous woman who needs donor eggs to help her to conceive, we can offer you our S1 package at no charge. Eligibility criteria apply. You will require the use of donated sperm too.

IVF with donor sperm and partner-to-partner sharing

If you would like to donate half of your eggs to your same-sex partner and the other half to an anonymous recipient, we can offer you a highly affordable all-inclusive package. This increasingly popular partner IVF option allows both partners to be directly involved in the creation of their baby. You will require the use of donated sperm too.

IVF with donor sperm and donor eggs

The donor eggs can be from your same-sex partner or an anonymous donor if you need donor eggs to conceive. Donor sperm is also required.

For many couples this is a beautiful process that allows both parents to have a unique linkage to the child.
