STORRS, CONNECTICUT-The professionals at The Center for Advanced Reproductive Services know that there are many different paths to parenthood. We know because we help build families with couples every day. The Center’s professionals are aware too that fertility options and issues facing same sex couples are different from other couples. Same sex couples may encounter legal, financial and ethical obstacles that need special attention and knowledge to overcome. Various medical procedures also have benefits and risks that need to be understood. That’s why, The Center, offers same-sex couples the very best in comprehensive and personalized care.
The fertility options for third party reproduction have grown over the years. Gay and lesbian couples now have choices that include not only adopted children, but genetically related children, as well. Female couples, depending on each partner’s health and age, can use advanced technologies such as sperm donation with intrauterine insemination (IUI), in vitro fertilization (IVF), reciprocal IVF, egg donation and egg or embryo freezing to achieve a pregnancy. Male couples, depending on each partner’s sperm quality and surrogacy options, can use technologies like artificial insemination, IVF, egg donation, and surrogacy.
All of these techniques have been used extensively at _The Center_ and our experts can help you determine what is best for your particular situation. In addition to the range of advanced medical technologies we offer, we can also promise you the highest level of skill and expertise in successfully using them. The Center is run by experts in the field of reproductive endocrinology and infertility and its physicians and clinical experts have been nationally recognized for their success, compassion and commitment.
