“I think it is important to focus on all aspects of fertility. Women are often the center of the fertility discussion but up to 30% of couples have a male factor involved. Most studies have shown association of advanced paternal age affecting outcomes for pregnancy for men over the age of 40. There is an increased risk of autism and schizophrenia. Freezing sperm without a medical reason before age 30 has not shown a benefit but a discussion should be had with a healthcare provider. ” Contact LGBT Fertility today to learn about your fertility options.

Dr. Daniel A. Skora discusses the importance between boxers and briefs when it comes to men’s fertility.
Dr. Daniel A. Skora, a reproductive endocrinologist, joins Fertility Specialists of Texas; September 2018.
“First, as a proud openly gay doctor, when I was looking to join a fertility practice one of the most important things I looked at was whether that practice had a long standing relationship with the LGBTQ community. Fertility Specialists of Texas (FST) has been involved in the local and national LGBTQ community since its inception. Dr Goldstein, our founder, has been deeply involved in men having babies since starting our practice. I routinely see local Dallas members of the community and from all over the world. We are involved in local and national fundraising for LGBTQ causes and feel deeply that anybody who wishes to have children should be able to.” We are thrilled to have Dr. Skora join LGBT Fertility and the FST team!
We just love this couple and we are very proud to have helped them have a daughter!
UPDATE: They also have a baby boy too!

The Supreme Court ruled on Friday, June 26th 2015 that the U.S. Constitution provides same-sex couples the right to marry, giving a historic triumph to the American gay rights movement.
The court ruled 5-4 that the Constitution’s guarantees of due process and equal protection under the law mean that states cannot ban same-sex marriages. With the landmark ruling, gay marriage becomes legal in all 50 states.
A few words from Dr. Goldstein…
