Question: 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
Answer: 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.

Answer: Charlene,   Thank you for your email inquiry. We would not be able to perform a tubal reversal on you due to your age.  In vitro fertilization using an egg donor would be an option.  The cost is approximately $19200 for the actual cycle plus $2500-$4500 for the cost of medications for both you and the donor.  The majority of insurance companies will not cover egg donor IVF but you could contact your policy and ask.   Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Question: My wife and I would like to have a child, however, she has had a hysterectomy, and is only left with one ovary. She is 42, and I`m 39. We would like to use an egg from her, and sperm from me, and we have a friend located in MD that is willing to carry the baby for us. What do we need to do to get started without having to pay a surrogacy clinic outrages amounts of money? We have no idea of where to start. The woman that is willing to carry our child for us is currently pregnant, and due in June, how long after she has the child do we have to wait to have her carry ours? Thank you..
Answer: Thank you for your email inquiry.  The first step would be to schedule a new patient infertility consultation so that the physician can determine whether you are able to use your own eggs or not and whether surrogacy is the best route.  There is some preliminary testing that needs to be completed before knowing your ovarian reserve and what your true options are. If you are interested in scheduling an appointment with our clinic, please call our office to schedule a new patient visit. Please let me know if you have further questions.
