Are you a healthy woman under the age of 35 in a lesbian relationship?
If you are a healthy lesbian woman who is under the age of 35 and are reading this page? It is very wise and clever of you to inform yourself about the different options of becoming a mother while you are still young and have high egg quality.
Social Egg Freezing
It is very important for you to know that aging of human eggs starts after 30 years. It results in the increase of proportion of unhealthy abnormal eggs, incapable of creating a pregnancy and/or a healthy baby.
- 20-25% eggs are already abnormal
in the age of 30
- 40-45% of eggs are abnormal
in the age of 35
- 70-75% of abnormal eggs
in the age of 40
The percentage of abnormal eggs grows dramatically after the age of 40 so that it is hardly possible to find normal eggs in the age above 43 [D. Wells, 2013]. Luckily there is a method helping to sort out the abnormal eggs and embryos and to create a pregnancy with a healthy child. Interested? Read more!

At AVA-Peter we are proud to be able to offer you a donor with a basic profile from our own sperm donor database. Within the basic profile you will receive the following information about a sperm donor: age, blood group, height, weight, eye and hair colour. If however you would prefer to use one of the main European Sperm banks so that you can choose your own donor and gain in-depth information and profiles of the donor we are more than happy to help you with the choice and sperm transportation to our clinic.
If you would like to find out more about different sperm donor options and how we can use this to meet your own personal needs please contact us for a free non obliging telephone consultation.
If your fallopian tubes are open and ovarian reserve is good we recommend you to consider Insemination with donor sperm
Artificial intra-uterine insemination (IUI) is a procedure for transferring sperm cells into the uterine cavity. Before being transferred into the uterus the sperm is thoroughly prepared: washed, centrifuged, the quickest and hence the most promising sperm group separated. Insemination although simple, is still a highly effective method of assisted reproductive techniques (ART)
If you would like to find out more information or advice about Insemination with donor sperm and how we can use this to meet your own personal needs please contact us for a free non-obliging telephone consultation.
If your fallopian tubes are blocked or 3-4 IUIs with donor sperm have not helped to achieve pregnancy, we recommend to consider IVF with your own eggs and donor sperm
The IVF (in vitro fertilization) is a procedure of fertilizing your eggs outside your body (in a test tube) and transferring your embryo inside your uterus in the right time and place. If you would like to find out more about how your eggs are grown and collected as well as how an embryo can be put back in the uterus, please read more here.

If you are considering choosing the gender of your future child, you need to consider IVF with your own eggs and donor sperm + PGS for family balancing
IVF allows not only to make sure that fertilization of an egg with a sperm has taken place and a developing embryo is placed at the right time in the right place, but also provides access to embryos at pre-implantation stage for possible chromosome testing including the gender!
PGS for family balancing allows creating a pregnancy with a fetus of desirable gender. PGS allows also testing of all the 23 chromosome pairs of your embryos so as
- to reduce the risk of chromosome abnormalities in the fetus
- to increase the chance to get pregnant
- to increase the chance of giving birth to a healthy baby
If you would like to find out more information or advice about gender selection and genetic testing of your IVF embryos and how we can use this to meet your own personal needs please contact us for a free non obliging telephone consultation.
If you have certain medical condition such as fallopian tube dysfunction/previous removal, endometriosis, fibroids, reduced follicular reserve (low AMH) or even premature menopause, please do request a free of charge non-obliging phone consultation with our doctor so that we advise your options and help you choose the best strategy to meet your physical needs and personal values.
For example women with endometriosis are advised not to postpone maternity as endometriosis reduces chances to conceive.
Women in premature menopause have sadly no eggs left independent of their age. Luckily it is still possible to become a mother through IVF with donor eggs and donor sperm
