Our policies and information on fertility care for trans people
Some news stories over the weekend about fertility care for trans teenagers quoted the views of a former member of the HFEA board, Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali.
Bishop Nazir-Ali, who left our board 14 years ago, does not speak for the HFEA, nor do his comments reflect our policy on providing fertility care for trans people.
Our information for trans and non-binary people talks through the options, including freezing eggs and sperm before hormone therapy or surgery. It also gives details of where to go for further support
Fertility clinics provide freezing services and treatment for people who want to start a family. Today, we published expanded guidance for fertility professionals to help them support trans patients. This includes guidance on freezing eggs or sperm for future use.
