At Newtown Fertility Centre, we welcome everyone to our clinic including the LGBTQ community. We take pride in affirming care and work with every person as an individual and tailor our services to meet their needs, including supporting LGBTQ families. Our clinic welcomes people of diverse genders and sexualities into our service.
We understand that traditional gynaecology and reproductive clinics can be tricky spaces for LGBTQ people to feel included. LGBTQ patients are welcome and supported for their individual needs. Fertility treatments for LGBTQ Patients include:
Building a family via surrogacy
Egg or sperm donation
Fertility Treatments for LGBTQ Patients
Donor eggs and sperm
Through City Fertility, donor eggs and sperm are available. Dr Tash will guide you with the process. People may also have known egg and sperm donors.
Surrogacy is a complex process whereby a woman agrees to bear a child for another person or persons, who will become the child’s parent after birth.
For people undergoing gender affirmation with the assistance of hormones, surgery or other medical interventions, some of these treatments can have an impact on their fertility. While some of these effects can be short term others can be permanent.
If you plan to affirm your gender medically and wish to preserve your fertility to have a family in the future there are options available including Egg and Sperm Preservation. Feel free to discuss the best option with Dr Tash before commencing your medical affirmation.
