It’s LGBT’s history month and to show our support we will be posting a series of blogs on fertility treatment for same sex ladies. We have also arranged an open evening especially for same sex women to come and find out more about their fertility options and to meet our friendly and expert team.
The history of the gay rights movement has greatly impacted on the building of families for same sex couples, together with technological advances in fertility treatments.
The Civil Partnership Act in 2004 allowed same sex couples to form registered civil partnerships and more recently in 2014 gay marriage became legal in England, Wales and Scotland, and with these same sex couples gained parental rights over their children.
DI and IVF treatments increasing for same sex couples
Interestingly since 2014, the HFEA Fertility treatment 2014 to 2016 Trends and Figures report shows an increase of 23 per cent in the number of DI treatment cycles for patients with a female partner (41 per cent of DI treatment cycles were from women who registered with a female partner), and an increase of 30 per cent in the number of IVF treatments for patients with a female partner.
