Choosing TRIO for 2SLGBTQIA+ Family Building
TRIO is proud to help gender and sexually diverse individuals and couples to grow their families. Everyone’s journey is different; that’s why all of our staff at TRIO have received specialized training to support the specific family-building needs of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community.
TRIO’s third-party coordinator helps every patient understand their family-building options and rights, and helps them navigate their way through the process.
2SLGBTQIA+ Patients Requiring Sperm Donation
Aspiring 2SLGBTQIA+ parents can build their families with sperm donation.
Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)
IUI is recommended for patients who have eggs and a uterus and will be using donor sperm to achieve a pregnancy. With this treatment, donor sperm is inserted into a uterus to fertilize an egg and create a pregnancy.
In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)
IVF is a treatment where an egg from one partner is fertilized with donor sperm to create an embryo. That embryo is allowed to develop in the TRIO lab for approximately 5 days until it reaches a stage known as a “blastocyst.” The blastocyst is then implanted into the uterus of one partner to create a pregnancy.
Reciprocal In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)
Reciprocal IVF is a popular option for couples who were both born with eggs and a uterus; it allows both partners to contribute to the creation of the pregnancy. In this option, one partner provides the eggs to be fertilized, while the other is then implanted with the embryo to carry the pregnancy.
2SLGBTQIA+ Patients Requiring Egg Donation and Surrogacy
Future 2SLGBTQIA+ parents can build their families through egg donation and surrogacy.
Fertility Services for Transgender People
TRIO provides a variety of fertility services for transgender intended parents and for those seeking to preserve their fertility. Our TRIO fertility specialists and third party coordinator help patients understand their options and treatment plan that fits their unique needs.
