Fertility treatment for female same sex couples
Complete Fertility gives lesbian couples the very best chance of having a baby
We are proud of our reputation for offering donor insemination to ladies in a same sex relationship.
We have high quality donor sperm available now from rigorously screened donors for you to choose from.
Complete Fertility works in partnership with you and your partner to develop a personal fertility treatment plan to help you have a baby. We offer donor sperm, IUI, IVF, egg sharing and mutual parenting with excellent success rates.
Conveniently located at University Hospital Southampton, our modern centre brings together experts in fertility medicine to provide first class and complete assisted conception care throughout your journey.
Here’s a useful overview of your fertility options as a same sex woman wishing to become a parent.
- 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.
- IUI with donor sperm
Intrauterine insemination (IUI) with donor sperm, also know as donor insemination (DI), is a fertility treatment that directly places specially prepared sperm into your womb at the time when your eggs are being released.
- IVF with donor sperm
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 free IVF. 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 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.
- Egg banking
You can freeze your eggs until you are ready to start a family.
- Fertility check up
You can have a single or couple fertility check up to give you a comprehensive picture of your fertility health to support your fertility planning, to determine the best fertility treatments for you, and to indicate the partner with the best chance of conception.
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.
