LGBTQ Fertility

At Cardone Reproductive Medicine and Infertility (CRMI), we believe it is the right of every individual or couple to build their own family – and that loving families come in many forms!

We felt this way when we first opened our doors in 1989 – and more than ever today. We are truly honored to have an opportunity to help patients understand their options and provide them with the resources needed to start a wonderful family.

CRMI is dedicated to helping create all types of families regardless of sexual orientation or marital status. Family building for same-sex intended parents requires the assistance of a third party – a sperm donor for lesbian women and an egg donor and a surrogate for gay men. CRMI works with many reputable and experienced sperm banks, egg donation and surrogacy agencies, reproductive lawyers and infertility consultants, all of whom you may use to help you find donors and surrogates and to ensure that all legal requirements are met. Known egg and sperm donors also can be used but will need to undergo all the required testing.
