She shares LGBTQIA+ assisted reproduction services including alternatives to IVF
Giddy, an online sexual health resource, featured Dr. Sara Mucowski’s expertise on INVOcell, an affordable IVF alternative, as a prime option for LGBTQIA+ family building. INVOcell is a novel device which holds eggs and sperm in a woman’s body for fertilization and embryo incubation.
This is the only assisted reproductive treatment where partners with vaginas can ‘carry’ the same pregnancy. Dr. Mucoswki explains:
“Use Partner A’s eggs and uterus, and Partner B carries the pregnancy in the earliest stages by providing the vagina that ‘incubates’ from fertilization up until embryo transfer to Partner A’s uterus.”
When it comes to LGBTQIA+ assisted reproduction, there are a wealth of options for couples or individuals. Understanding those options is the first step on the pathway to parenthood.
