At Dreams Fertility, we are experienced in helping you understand donor services and how to make the most of today’s advanced technology.

Nothing matters more to our infertility center than your successful pregnancy!
Female infertility issues are caused by ovulation disorders, tubal blockages, uterine problems, and age. Same-sex couples, gay men who wish to become fathers, also need donor eggs.
Frozen egg banks store highly screened, good-quality eggs from a donor base of young, healthy women. These egg donors choose to help others with the life-changing decision to donate reproductive potential.
For same-sex couples and women facing severe infertility, frozen egg banks provide an essential source for a cycle of IVF or gestational surrogacy. Dreams Fertility embryologists will fertilize the donor egg with the intended father’s sperm or donor sperm to create an embryo. We then transfer this embryo back to the mother or a gestational surrogate.
To date, approximately 12 percent of IVF cycles involve donor eggs, and according to the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, it is associated with one of the highest success rates.
Dreams Fertility provides an in-house egg donor program. That means that we have already interviewed, screened, and prepared our egg donors to participate in a cycle of ovulation induction and egg retrieval. When you decide that it is time to proceed with a fertility treatment cycle, we will assist in matching you with the ideal donor.
Egg donation can be a wonderful way for LGBTQ+ families to have children. For gay men, in particular, egg donation can provide the opportunity to have children that are biologically related to one partner.
In addition, egg donation can help to create a family that is more closely related than would be possible through adoption or other methods. For all LGBTQ+ families, egg donation can provide the chance to have children who share similar genetic backgrounds. For example, each partner could fertilize an egg from the same donor to produce children who are genetic half-siblings. Ultimately, egg donation can be an enriching and rewarding experience for all involved.
There are many reasons why an aspiring parent might choose to use sperm donor services. One of the main benefits is the ability to select a donor with specific characteristics.
For example, parents can choose a donor who is tall or has a particular hair or eye color. Another benefit of sperm donor services is that donors undergo extensive medical and psychological screening to ensure that they are healthy and have no family history of genetic disorders.
In addition, sperm donors must sign legal contracts agreeing to relinquish all parental rights and responsibilities, which gives peace of mind to parents who use donor sperm. Overall, sperm donor services offer many advantages to parents who wish to conceive a child without using traditional methods.
Sperm donation is one of the most popular methods for conception for LGBTQ+ families where there is no sperm-producing partner, such as same-sex female couples and relationships where one or both partners are transgender men. If you wish to have children that share a biological link, you can speak to your fertility specialist about conceiving multiple children using the same donor.
Sperm donors are a great solution for single mothers that want to have children independently. Using a sperm donor can also be less expensive and more convenient than other methods of having a child, such as adoption or in vitro fertilization.
Dreams Fertility offers the most complete range of fertility treatment services in the Palm Springs, California area.

Singles and couples in the LGBTQ+ community partner with our infertility center because we provide an uplifting, supportive and professional atmosphere during this exciting journey. Our fertility doctors have a long history of matching men and women with donor eggs, donor sperm, and gestational surrogates.
For lesbian couples that wish to equally participate in the pregnancy, if medically feasible, we frequently suggest reciprocal IVF where the eggs of one partner are harvested, and after fertilization, they are transferred into the other partner.
