Family Building Options

Fertility Treatment OptionsThere are many ways to help our patients achieve their goal of becoming parents depending on what your situation and diagnosis maybe. We tailor the treatments to your needs with the compassionate care that you deserve. Dr. Hosseinzadeh will review all of the options available to you so that you can make an informed decision of what best suits you.

Family Building Options for Women:

Some of the treatment options available are:

  • Donor insemination by intrauterine insemination is an option for single women and lesbian couples. The sperm donor may be someone known to you or you may select a donor from a sperm bank. This approach will allow you to have a biological connection to your child.
  • Same sex couples also have an option through IVF in which one partner undergoes the ovarian stimulation and egg retrieval and the resulting embryos are transferred into the uterus of the other partner to carry the pregnancy. This way both partners are contributing and sharing in the experience of making their dreams a reality.

Family Building Options for Men:

Some of the treatment options available are:

  • Using a “traditional surrogate” for single men and gay couples. In this situation, the “surrogate mother” carries an embryo conceived with her own eggs and the sperm of the male wishing to have a child. This can be achieved via intrauterine insemination (IUI) or in vitro fertilization (IVF). The gestational surrogate is the biological mother of the child and makes this kind of surrogacy more legally risky as the surrogate may change her mind and decide that she is the mother of the child and would like to keep the baby.
  • Using an egg donor and a “gestational surrogate”. In this scenario, IVF is used and the eggs from the egg donor are fertilized with the sperm from the intended father. Subsequently, one to two embryos are transferred into the uterus of the gestational carrier who in this case has no biological connection with the child. As this option is less legally risky, this is the option we recommend to most of our patients.

Out of State and International Patients

Dr. Hosseinzadeh’s over 20 years experience along with her commitment to do what is best for the patients makes her uniquely qualified to take care of you. Dr. Hosseinzadeh will conduct all of your appointments, unlike larger practices where you are treated by a variety of physicians and no one really knows your specific situation personally. We offer quality care in a small, boutique setting. Her years of experience gives her the ability to synchronize and coordinate the cycles of donors, surrogates and the intended parent in order to simplify the process for patients who are required to travel to our center. You will be given a calendar of what to expect and we will be with you at every step of the way, to hold your hand, give guidance and answer all your questions.
