Our Natural Cycle and trademarked Mini-IVF™ protocols are not only safe and successful but also lower health risks associated with conventional fertility treatments. Rather than stimulating your ovaries to produce multiple eggs, Natural Cycle IVF is intended to capture the one egg that your body naturally produces each month during your menstrual cycle. This egg is generally not only the best quality but will also give you the greatest chance for pregnancy.
Natural Cycle IVF is ideal for women who prefer fewer drugs and medications, for older women, or for women who are less likely to produce multiple eggs even with the administration of IVF drugs. Natural Cycle IVF can allow women in these groups to avoid the health risks and high cost of IVF drugs as well as the discomfort of daily injections.
Additionally, many women in these groups, are often turned away by traditional IVF clinics for not producing enough eggs. As part of Nishant Fertility Center’s wide range of fertility treatment options, Natural Cycle IVF helps us keep the promise of our “One Good Egg” policy “One Good Egg” policy.
Mini-IVF treatment is our trademarked minimal stimulation in vitro fertilization protocol. SART has recently endorsed minimal stimulation IVF for many of the reasons that we have been talking about for years. Like our Natural Cycle IVF, it is a holistic approach to fertility care and offers a gentle alternative to Conventional IVF. It differs from Natural Cycle IVF in its use of a minimal amount of oral medication which stimulates the ovaries so they produce the maximum number of “quality” eggs in a single cycle.
Only 3-5 high quality eggs are ideal for developing a healthy baby. When more aggressive IVF drug treatments are used (like with conventional IVF), although more eggs are produced, those beyond 3-5 are typically not viable and are either discarded prior to implantation or are prone to failing in a later natural miscarriage.
In general, medication for the Mini-IVF treatment includes one Clomid pill consumed daily, no more than one to three injections of Menopur, and a simple nasal spray of Synarel or an equivalent medicine administered 36 hours prior to egg retrieval. Synarel avoids the need for repeated progesterone injections, which are typically used after the transfer step in conventional IVF. However, because we customize protocols to each individual patient, treatment may vary from case to case. We also have Ultra-Mini-IVF cycles that consists of only oral stimulation medications –usually 1-2 pills per day.
Mini-IVF minimizes the amount of chemicals and drugs used in fertility treatment. Mini-IVF may increase the chances of pregnancy and may provide surplus embryos to freeze for a later cycle.
Mini-IVF may be the right fit for you if you are looking to reduce health risks and discomfort caused by ovarian hyper-stimulation (OHSS), to eliminate the pain of daily drug injections (which can be 20-60 per cycle), to reduce the high cost of drugs in conventional IVF protocols (see Nishant Fertility Center’s low IVF fees), to avoid the wait time of two to three months between cycles, and to minimize the potential risk of ovarian and endometrial cancer from prolonged use of high-dose IVF drugs.
Nishant Fertility Center promotes a single-embryo strategy (unless otherwise requested by the patient) to avoid the health risks of multiple pregnancies. The pregnancy success rates for our Mini-IVF treatment (an average of 1.1 embryos are transferred in each cycle) is competitive with the success rate produced with conventional IVF, where usually 2-3 embryos are transferred in each IVF cycle. Please see the chart below which compares what you can expect from Conventional IVF vs. Mini-IVF treatments.
Nishant Fertility Center’s Mini-IVF protocols are gentle, natural, and successful. Our clinic is recognized globally as a leading pioneer for this treatment and we are in the midst of publishing a comparison paper between minimal stimulation and conventional IVF as a follow up to prior publications on the advantages to minimal stimulation.
