Natural cycle IVF is a form of in vitro fertilization without the use of medication to stimulate the ovary to produce multiple eggs. It is done in a natural menstrual cycle, where only one dominant follicle with a single oocyte (egg) typically develops. Patients are monitored with several ultrasounds and blood tests to follow the development of the single follicle. With Natural Cycle IVF, your body naturally selects your best egg. When mature, the egg is retrieved. It is then fertilized with your husband’s sperm using modern in vitro laboratory techniques. If a viable dividing embryo is produced, it is transferred back to the uterus. Two weeks after that, we test for pregnancy.
The entire process is based on your menstrual cycle and takes 30 days. You have no hospitalization, no drugs, and almost no chance of multiple pregnancies, all of which minimize stress.
This process is simple, less stressful, cost effective and allows you to accommodate your cycle in your hectic work schedule.
