Background: Assisted reproductive technologies, including in vitro fertilization (IVF), can be utilized for fertility preservation and family building in the transgender and gender-nonconforming population. Methods: This is a retrospective case series from an academic tertiary care center. Results: We present three couples with a transgender or gender-nonconforming member who pursued IVF to build their families. The first case involves a transgender man who suspends hormone therapy to undergo IVF. The second involves a transgender woman who uses her previously banked sperm to undergo IVF with her wife. The third involves a gender nonbinary patient and their cisgender wife who create and transfer embryos from both partners. Conclusion: IVF can provide unique family-building opportunities to transgender and gender-nonconforming patients, and providers should seek to broaden their clinical experience with this population.
