Options For Lesbians

When a single or lesbian couple are deciding to get pregnant, the first step is to perform several tests to ensure a healthy pregnancy—even for women considering home insemination. These include screens for overall health and the risk of passing genetic diseases, which can be prevented through ART.

From there, the goal of course is to utilize one of several methods to fertilize a woman’s egg with donated sperm.
