LGBT Family Building

LGBT Family Building Options in San Antonio from a Trusted Leader in Fertility Treatment

When you decide it’s time to start or build a family, Texas Fertility Center physicians devote themselves to finding straightforward solutions to complex problems. For the LGBT community, fertility treatment will involve the same effective options and familiar terms that make conception possible for heterosexual infertile couples: intrauterine insemination (IUI) and in vitro fertilization (IVF).

Our San Antonio fertility clinic connects members of the LGBT community and unmarried individuals with family building fertility treatments. We adhere to the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) guidelines for third party reproduction. Our board certified fertility specialist, Drs. James and Munch, welcome your questions in a new patient consultation.

Where to Begin?

The individualized plan that Drs. James and Munch, designs will take into account your goals for conceiving a child. For example: Do you wish to share a biological connection? If you are a lesbian couple, which partner will participate in IUI or IVF?

The Texas Fertility Center team will help schedule your initial consultation, arrange for baseline fertility testing and explain your financial options. Insurance coverage can help manage the cost of fertility testing.

We are committed to making the LGBT family building process as stress-free and pleasant as possible. Conceiving a baby should be a joyful experience!

Family Building Options for Lesbian Couples

Donor sperm insemination provides many women with the most efficient way to have a baby. Drs. James and Munch, performs intrauterine insemination in our San Antonio fertility clinic, gently guiding a catheter into the uterine cavity to transfer washed and prepared sperm. Prior to insemination, we may decide to incorporate fertility medications to induce ovulation.

If testing uncovers significant infertility issues, Drs. James and Munch, may recommend IVF.

Whether you proceed with IUI or IVF, you will decide between a known or anonymous sperm donor. Reputable sperm banks screen and cryopreserve specimens and quarantine them for six months to ensure that when you feel ready to conceive with donor insemination or IVF, your donor sperm is ready for transport.

With donor insemination and IVF, you share a biological connection with your baby.

Family Building Options for Gay Couples

There are many experienced reproductive lawyers in San Antonio to assist you in finding and securing a gestational surrogate. Drs. James and Munch, will order your semen analysis and walk you through the IVF process that will pave the way to a successful pregnancy. Our Texas Fertility Center in-house egg donor program fills the last gap in your plans to start a family. We are happy to refer you to frozen egg banks that serve the U.S. and adhere to rigid state and federal regulations.

Ask Drs. James and Munch, about gay parenting options that enable both partners to share a biological connection with their child.

Your caring and personable fertility specialist will thoroughly explain your family building options, and celebrate your choice to share your love with a baby. To begin your journey, contact our San Antonio fertility clinic for a consultation with Drs. James and Munch,.
