Mini Natural IVF

What is mini/natural IVF?

Mini IVF is a variation of IVF that requires little or no medication before oocyte retrieval.
In a typical IVF cycle the woman receives medications (gonadotrophins) for 8-10 days to stimulate her ovaries. In mini  IVF the woman takes no medication at all(natural cycle) or oral medication (clomiphene or letrozole) alone or in combination with low dose inject able hormones. This type of treatment allows us to collect the best quality eggs using minimal stimulation.
With mini IVF the cost per cycle is lower because the woman uses less or no medication and the risk for ovarian hyperstimulation is minimized.
This type of IVF is also an alternative for women who are poor responders in normal ovarian stimulation and there is no benefit of getting large doses of hormonal medication.
Usually the woman produce less eggs with this treatment and it  is less likely to have any embryos to freeze so they can be used in the future during a frozen embryo transfer (FET).
There is also a risk of having  no fertilized egg or poor quality embryo to transfer and the whole cycle is lost.
All the benefits and disadvantages of mini  IVF should be discussed during initial consultation so the couple is well informed.

What are the success rates with mini IVF?

The success rates for mini IVF depend on the woman’s age and  the quality of the embryos and the endometrium.
Because every couple is different our care is individualized and this is the best way to have great results.
