We call these cy­cles in­trauter­ine in­sem­i­na­tion or IUI. Sperm, from your donor, is passed through a tube into the uterus. The team can also as­sist you with in­for­ma­tion on sperm do­na­tion. EGG-SHAR­ING This in­volves hav­ing an IVF cy­cle and do­nat­ing half of the eggs cre­ated and col­lected to an­other woman/cou­ple who can­not con­ceive with her own eggs, or a gay male cou­ple who do not have their own eggs. SHARED MOTH­ER­HOOD This op­tion is for cou­ples who want to share the ex­pe­ri­ence of cre­at­ing an em­bryo through an IVF cy­cle and car­ry­ing the preg­nancy, and is a pop­u­lar and suc­cess­ful op­tion for many les­bian/bi­sex­ual cou­ples. IN VITRO FER­TIL­I­SA­TION (IVF) One woman/part­ner cre­ates her eggs through an IVF cy­cle. Eggs are col­lected and em­bryo cre­ated by com­bin­ing the egg/sperm in a dish in the lab and the em­bryo is trans­ferred back into the uterus. FER­TIL­ITY PRESER­VA­TION Also known as egg freez­ing, this op­tion al­lows you to pre­serve your eggs to use in the fu­ture. Eggs are col­lected and then frozen to be thawed for fer­til­i­sa­tion when you or your part­ner are ready to con­ceive.
