If you were birth-designated male and are thinking about building a family before undergoing sex-reassignment surgery (SRS) and/or hormone therapy, we encourage you to consider fertility preservation options such as sperm or embryo freezing; you can freeze your sperm (for up to 10 years) and store it for later use. For further information please refer to our sperm freezing page.
The routes to parenthood are different for everyone and will vary depending on your current situation. That’s why we offer a tailored service to each of our transgender patients, based around their very specific needs. Call us to book an initial consultation, where we’ll take the time to better understand how we might be able to help you. In the meantime, you are welcome to visit our Possible Treatment Options page.

Therefore, we encourage you to refer to your own state legislation for more information and see one of our specialists to discuss your individual circumstances and explore your options.
Rainbow Fertility cannot provide specific information about sex-reassignment counselling, hormone treatment, or surgery. If you would like to talk to someone in more detail about your personal circumstances and the options available to you, we encourage you to make an appointment with your GP.
