The use of donor sperm is an option for couples or individuals who either do not have sperm or are unable to have a child using their own. Sperm can be obtained from a known donor or through a donor sperm bank.
The use of donor eggs is an option for couples or individuals who either do not have eggs or are unable to have a child using their own. Eggs can be obtained from a known donor or through a donor egg bank.
The use of a gestational surrogate is an option for couples or individuals who do not have a uterus or are unable to have a child using their own uterus. An embryo, which is made up of the sperm and egg of the intended parent(s), donor sperm and donor egg, or a combination of the two, is placed in the uterus of the gestational carrier who then carries the pregnancy to delivery.
Reciprocal IVF is an option for same-sex female and/or transgender male partners in which one partner wishes to carry the pregnancy while the other partner wishes to use their eggs to create an embryo. The partner providing eggs undergoes an IVF cycle and their eggs are combined with donor sperm to create embryos. An embryo is then transferred into the uterus of the partner wishing to carry the pregnancy.
Pollin Fertility is proud to support transgender individuals and couples through their gender affirmation journey. We offer egg freezing services for trans individuals with ovaries, and sperm freezing services for trans individuals with testes.
