June is Pride Month, and as the celebrations kick off around the country, we’re shining a light on the fertility treatment options available to LGBT+ couples, families, and individuals. We know that the path to parenthood isn’t always simple, and that members of the LGBT+ community often face many issues and challenges along the way. All of us at SCRC are committed to equality in reproductive choices and treatment for LGBT families.

Creating sensitive treatment plans for the varied needs of LGBT+ couples and individuals is one of our specialties, and we make it a point to attend events like the Men Having Babies conference to help inform families of all their family building options. Among our fertility experts, Dr. Ghadir in particular has been recognized for his advocacy in the community. He is a supporter of the Family Equality Council and often speaks to the LGBT+ media about fertility choices, including The Fight, The Mirror, Frontiers LA, The Bay Area Reporter, South Florida Gay News, and 429 Magazine. Recently, Dr. Ghadir was named one of the “19 LGBTQ Game Changers You Should Know” by LA Confidential Magazine.

We strongly believe that everyone deserves to create the family of their dreams, and one of the greatest joys of working in the field of reproductive medicine is watching how cutting-edge fertility treatments have opened doors for the LGBT+ community. The prospect of welcoming a new baby is exciting for anyone, and modern Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART) mean that the dream of building a family together is now a reality for more couples than ever. It’s our privilege to play a part in making dreams come true with the help of the latest technology, treatments, and research.

LGBT+ families have unique needs, and like all prospective parents, they often have many questions about what is possible, what is involved, and what they can expect. Some of these questions can only be answered in a consultation with your fertility professional, but we can make a start by covering the most common queries about LGBT+ family planning.
