Third-Party Reproduction Family Planning with Lane Fertility

The journey to parenthood is not always straightforward, and sometimes it can feel unattainable. But here at Lane Fertility Institute, we are committed to finding you a solution if possible.

Even if you have exhausted fertility treatment options such as artificial insemination (ICSI), in vitro fertilization (IVF), or INVOcell, there is still another option. Third-party reproduction can be a viable answer for many patients.

Our third-party reproduction services at Lane Fertility Institute can guide the way. Our team can match with a third-party service that feels right for you to help you start or grow your family.

Become a Parent with a
Gestational Carrier

A gestational carrier (GC), also known as a gestational surrogate, carries a baby for another couple. A GC is not genetically related to the baby in any way, as the GC’s eggs are not used to create the embryo. 

A genetic carrier may be needed by someone who has been diagnosed with a uterine factor or other medical contraindications to pregnancy. 

A gestational carrier is impregnated through the use of an embryo transfer. In this process, an embryo is created by fertilizing eggs from either the intended parent or an egg donor with sperm from the intended parent or a sperm donor. Gay couples need both surrogate and donor eggs.

Third-Party Reproduction: Egg Donor Recipient

Become a Parent
with an Egg Donor

For many intended parents, egg donation may be needed to achieve a healthy pregnancy. Egg Donation is a fertility treatment in which a young, fertile individual donates eggs to a recipient who is otherwise unable to get pregnant due to advanced maternal age or infertility. Egg donation is also a way for same-sex couples to build a family using an egg donor and a surrogate. 

Donor eggs are fertilized with fresh or frozen sperm and grown through the blastocyst stage to become an embryo. The embryo is then transferred into the recipient’s uterus to achieve pregnancy. Egg donation is a very successful fertility procedure with a live birth rate of 70% per transfer.

Third-Party Reproduction: Sperm donor

Become a Parent
with a Sperm Donor

Sperm donation is often used to achieve pregnancy for single women, lesbian couples, or heterosexual couples with male infertility. Fresh or frozen sperm may be donated by a donor directly to the intended parent(s) or through a sperm bank or fertility clinic that has FDA-tested sperm.

Pregnancies are usually achieved by using donor sperm in assisted reproductive techniques (ART) such as in vitro fertilization (IVF), intracervical insemination (ICI) or intravaginal insemination (IUI). Precise timing is needed with fresh semen while frozen semen offers more flexibility.

Transfer-ready embryos are available to be selected for use. These embryos are created from donor eggs and donor sperm. An IP(s) can choose to create their own embryo or to use remaining embryos from a prior IP. The use of embryos vs. donor eggs increases affordability.
