Progressively lesbian individuals and couples wishing to create a family are appealing to reciprocal in vitro fertilization (IVF). IVF allows one partner to be the egg donor and the other partner to carry the baby.
This attracts many lesbian couples because it permits both women to become bodily involved in the pregnancy and heightens the emotional involvement and connection to the pregnancy.
Lesbians are also turning to donor insemination to create a biological link to their child. This can be accomplished through an anonymous sperm donor using a sperm bank or fertility clinic. Frequently, a known donor is a friend or relative.
What are the Types of Insemination?
Insemination is based on personal inclination, cost, and fertility potential.
- IVI Intravaginal insemination
- ICI Intracervical insemination
- IUI Intrauterine insemination
Legal consultation with an attorney focusing on reproductive fertility, preferably one who has experience and knowledge working with same-sex couples will advise you and comfort you with the indispensable guidance regarding legal status as parents, and aid in defining the role of a known sperm donor.
Lesbian couples depend on sperm donors in order to reach their dreams. Choosing a donor can have lifelong legal and emotional repercussions and is a decision you must make with judgment.
