Reciprocal IVF

The Fertility Centers of New England is committed to helping you create a healthy family regardless of your marital status, sexual orientation, or gender identity. Here we explain reciprocal IVF and LGBTQ family building options.

What is reciprocal IVF and how does it work?

Reciprocal IVF (in vitro fertilization) is a method of family building used by couples who have female reproductive organs. The eggs of one partner are inseminated with sperm and a resulting embryo is transferred into the uterus of the other partner. Additional embryos can be vitrified (frozen) for later use by either partner. This method is identical to IVF with egg donation. One partner supplies the eggs and the other partner carries their baby.

Reciprocal IVF and LGBTQ Family Building Options

Reciprocal IVF allows lesbian couples and pre-transition trans men the joys of parenthood through shared family building.
