Breaking down the hurdles to healthcare
From sourcing sperm to navigating conception under the (very unsexy) harsh light of a clinic, getting pregnant as a same-sex couple is often more bureaucratic than romantic.
With the majority of services and information aimed at heterosexual couples (classic), it can be confusing to know where to go for the right info.
That's why we have created an expert-backed guide to arm you with all of the information that you need for starting a family if you are in an assigned-female-at-birth (AFAB) partnership.
A guide to getting pregnant for those in same-sex relationships
This one is for the girls, gays and theys. Our Scientists and Clinicians have teamed up with renowned illustrators and comedians to bring you the guide you want, but won't find in a Doctor's waiting room.

"If you’re a gay woman, you’re not going to get pregnant by ‘accident’ which is GREAT! Until you want to get pregnant, then being a lesbian is a massive ball ache, or should I say, womb ache!”

Every journey starts with assessing your homrones. Whether you’re in a same-sex relationship or not, everyone should have access to information about their reproductive health and fertility so they can make informed choices about life’s big decisions.

'Hertility was a game-changer for me. I’m taking the first steps to getting my cycles under control and getting help to conceive.'
How it works
This is just the beginning. We want to work with a passionate bunch of fertility equality warriors to help us create a better way for same-sex partners to have babies.
What are we QUEERying?
Why should we have to spend up to £50,000 to access NHS-funded fertility treatment, when heterosexual couples get it for free?
How is it fair that you can get sperm shipped to your dentist, but not to your house? It’s just not.
Something needs to change.
We use the term ‘lesbian’ and ‘same-sex female couples’ throughout our content to refer to those in assigned-female-at-birth (AFAB) partnerships. We understand that not everyone who was/is AFAB and has an AFAB partner identifies as female, or as a lesbian. We’re here for anyone who also identifies as gender non-binary, gender non-specific, or that defines their sexuality in any other way to the terms that we have used. We want to make our content as inclusive as possible for the entire queer community, but we’re still learning and growing. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us and let us know the terms we can use that will make you feel included and seen.
