Fertility Specialists Necessary to Fertilize Egg and Sperm Cells for Same-Sex Couples

JoTo PR client, Fertility CARE: The IVF Center, was featured in a Psychology Today article titled A Generational Shift in LGBTQ+ Family Building.

The Brughs wanted two things: to start a family together and to have healthy children. Like many couples facing fertility challenges, they sought reproductive assistance.

But as a lesbian couple, Courteney and Dawn Brugh had the added stress of feeling discriminated against. After an incident at another clinic that made them feel unwelcomed for their sexuality, Courteney and Dawn turned to Dr. Trolice. “The incident led us to Dr. Trolice’s office, and Dawn and I could not be happier with how we have been treated from the moment we walked in the door,” said Courteney. The couple now commutes the 2.5 hours from Jacksonville to Winter Park, FL, for appointments.

Dr. Mark Trolice opened Fertility CARE: The IVF Center in 2003 and has always offered fertility treatments to same-sex partners. “Whether it’s a lesbian couple or a gay male couple or transgender, they’re going to require some form of assistance to be able to get sperm and egg together and then to have the carrier for the pregnancy.”

Fertility CARE (Center of Assisted Reproduction and Endocrinology): The IVF Center provides patient-centered, evidence-based, and individually customized reproductive care in a comfortable and compassionate setting. This Central Florida IVF clinic is the most successful facility of its kind in the Orlando area, and consistently earns 5-star patient ratings in online reviews. Established in 2003 by founder and director Dr. Mark P. Trolice, it is the only fertility clinic in the country to offer both male and female testing, evaluation, and treatment. Fertility CARE – The IVF Center offers a comprehensive range of infertility tests and treatment options as well as genetic testing, egg freezing with fertility preservation, egg donation, embryo cryopreservation, surrogacy and other services.
