Ask the experts: reciprocal IVF with Dr Ee Min Kho

Dr Ee Min Kho from Queensland Fertility Group is back to chat all about reciprocal IVF and egg sharing.

If you’re ready to grow your family, there’s an array of wonderfully diverse ways it can happen.

For same-sex couples who both produce eggs and have a uterus, there is an option called reciprocal IVF, or egg sharing.

What is reciprocal IVF, or egg sharing?

Egg sharing is an IVF procedure where you can build a family together with your partner, by using the eggs of one partner in an IVF cycle to create embryos with the help of donor sperm, and transfer the embryo into the other partner to carry the pregnancy.

This means that one partner is the birth parent, and the other partner is the genetic parent.

For many, this is a beautiful process allowing both parents to also have a unique connection with the child.

LGBTQIA+ fertility

Gender and sexually diverse couples also have a variety of options to begin a family that we are proud to support you with.

Where to start

The first step is to book an appointment with a fertility specialist.

They will get to know your individual circumstances, assess you and your partner’s reproductive health, and also start to tailor a treatment plan that aligns with your desired fertility pathway.

At Queensland Fertility Group, our doors are always open to have a chat and also learn how we can help you achieve your dreams of growing your family.
