Summary: Natural cycle IVF and Mini IVF are safe, repeatable, budget friendly treatment procedures with good success rates in patients with poor ovarian reserve.This is a kinder, holistic approach, which takes advantage of your body's own hormones!
Body: Natural cycle IVF is a simpler way of doing In Vitro Fertilization. It is especially of benefit to patients with poor ovarian reserve. These patients have a limited ovarian reserve and do not respond well to conventional superovulation with gonadotropin injections.
Natural cycle IVF or gentle IVF is a procedure done using minimal or no ovarian stimulation. It is a procedure with few side effects; is less expensive; and can be repeated; and has good success rates over a period of time, in expert hands. It is important that the patient is treated by IVF specialists who are completely aware of the challenges involved in this type of IVF. The procedure is quite demanding in terms of timing egg retrieval and fertilization of the egg. The procedure will fail if any, these factors are not monitored properly.
At Malpani Infertility Clinic, we are expert at ensuring you have the highest chances of success. We have a treatment schedule and protocol that we strictly follow for patients who come in for natural cycle IVF.
Another option with better pregnancy rates is a mini-IVF. It involves mild super ovulation to ensure the growth of 2-3 follicles. At Malpani Clinic the treatment plan for mini IVF is similar to natural IVF with some additional medical treatment. The first scan is on day 2 to confirm downregulation and absence of any ovarian cysts. You are then put on Letrozole from day 2 to day 6 and managing from day 3 onwards. The next scan is on day 7 and the rest of the procedure is similar to the one followed for natural cycle.
