For the physicians and staff at Generation Fertility, helping LGBTQ2SIA+ family groups and individuals grow their families is at the heart of what we do. Inclusion of all gender and sexually diverse people is an important value of Generation Fertility. We are continuously striving to create an environment of compassionate belonging.
 

Some ways we strive to ensure all of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community are welcome, comfortable, and safe:

  • We are conscientious of gender and sexual diversity and inclusion in the make-up of our team.
  • All Generation Fertility staff are provided with ongoing training on gender and sexual identity and diversity.
  • Gendered and gender-neutral washrooms are available at our clinics.
  • Expertise in providing third-party (donor and gestational carrier/surrogate) and reciprocal reproduction solutions.
  • Awareness and support while using gender-affirming hormones (for conception and sperm production).

Your Fertility Journey

Every family building journey is unique, and we are honoured to help you find the best path to create your family.

 

There are various approaches to treatment, depending on your circumstances. These include: intrauterine insemination (IUI), in vitro fertilization (IVF), donor sperm, donor egg, gestational carrier, genetic testing, egg freezing and sperm freezing.

Your Generation Fertility doctor will go over your options with you at your initial consultation. A referral for a consultation covered by MSP can be provided by your family doctor or a walk-in clinic.

Family Building Options

Assigned Female at Birth (AFAB) Family Groups

Generation Fertility is dedicated to helping family groups comprised of individuals, partners or co-parents who are AFAB build their family. In considering AFAB family groups, we are inclusive of those whose genders do not align with their sex assigned at birth, as well as cis-gender women.

 

The main treatment options for AFAB family groups are intrauterine insemination (IUI) and in vitro fertilization (IVF), including Shared IVF.

 

Shared IVF for AFAB: Shared IVF involves one partner going through the IVF process to produce eggs, which are then fertilised with a donor’s sperm. The embryo is then implanted into the womb of a second partner who carries the child. This results in one partner being the biological parent while the other is the gestational parent of the child.

Assigned Male at Birth (AMAB) Family Groups

Generation Fertility is dedicated to helping family groups comprised of individuals, partners or co-parents who are AMAB build their family. In considering AMAB family groups, we are inclusive of those whose genders do not align with their sex assigned at birth, as well as cis-gender men.

 

The treatment options for AMAB family groups include the help of an egg donor, gestational carrier or surrogate, and in vitro fertilization (IVF) including Shared IVF.

 

Shared IVF for AMAB: This is a process where half of donor eggs are fertilized with one partner’s sperm and half with the second partner’s sperm. An embryo fertilized from each of the partners is then transferred into the gestational carrier’s uterus.
