I Am A Lesbian Woman And I Would Like Too Know Is The IVF Procedure The Same For A Lesbian Female As It Is For A Male And Female- Tomora
Thank you for your email inquiry. The only difference in IVF with same sex couples is that the female couples would need to order sperm through a cryobank and have shipped to our lab for the fertilization of the eggs to occur. An IVF cycle with ICSI is $10350, plus the cost of medications which usually ranges between $2500-$4500 per cycle. You would pay the cryobank for the sperm and that usually ranges between $350-$750 depending on how many vials, characteristics, etc.
Hope this helps and please let me know if you have any further questions.
