Dr. Amy Schutt helps make parenthood possible with LGBTQ fertility care
When members of the LGBTQ community want to start or grow their family, they can turn to Dr. Amy Schutt to get the help they need. This Austin fertility specialist feels it’s an honor to provide LGBTQ fertility care to her patients.
“Everyone should be able to have a family, and thankfully, there are lots of treatment options to make it possible. I just feel honored that I can help guide my LGBTQ patients on the path to parenthood.”
Exploring the different LGBTQ fertility care options
No two patients are the same, so Dr. Schutt takes the time to learn about each person who comes to her for help welcoming a baby. “I start by asking each patient about their medical history and ordering some basic tests to help learn more about their baseline fertility. I also ask about their family-building goals so that I can develop a customized treatment plan for them.”
Once Dr. Schutt understands the patient’s unique situation, she can recommend the best LGBTQ fertility treatments for them.
- Gay men can welcome a baby using a combination of donor egg IVF and gestational surrogacy.
- Lesbian women have three main options, including donor sperm IUI, donor sperm IVF and reciprocal IVF.
- Transgender people have different options, depending on their fertility and where they are on their journey to transition. Everything from fertility preservation to IUI and IVF (with or without donor services) can help them become parents.
“It’s wonderful that we have different types of fertility treatments available to help members of the LGBTQ community become parents. I find it so rewarding to serve as their guide throughout the treatment process.”
