If you have gone through the IVF process, you know it can be demanding on the body. High hormone doses, multiple daily injections or pills, and consistent visits for bloodwork and ultrasounds can make anyone feel drained and overwhelmed. Then add on the chance of still not pulling enough high-quality eggs to fertilize and you may be left wondering if it is even worth it.
If you are someone who has tried conventional IVF with little to no success, it may be time to consider a more gentle and natural approach. With modern advancements and studies, doctors have found ways to use your body’s natural fertility to work with IVF cycles, prompting high success rates and less stress to the body and eggs.
What are examples of Gentle Stimulation IVF?
1. Mini IVF
Minimal Stimulation IVF is a New Hope protocol that concentrates on quality rather than quantity. It uses a minimal amount of medications to stimulate the ovaries, so they produce the maximum number of “quality” eggs. Success rates are comparable to that of conventional IVF.
This protocol aims to stimulate a woman’s body into producing between 6-8 quality eggs per cycle. Mini IVF has shown high success rates in women over 35 who have struggled with conventional IVF and IUI.
2. Natural IVF
Natural IVF is a more economical procedure that does not require fertility medication. A patient’s cycle is closely monitored to harvest an egg at an ideal time. Natural Cycle IVF is a gentle alternative that is holistic and lowers health risks associated with Conventional IVF. This option avoids the high costs associated with fertility drugs and avoids the discomfort of daily injections.
Natural IVF focuses on pulling one good-quality egg. Remember, it only takes one egg to become pregnant. By closely monitoring natural cycles and hormones, even the toughest cases can have success with Natural IVF methods.
Needle-Free IVF allows fertility patients to start a family using a simplified approach. During this treatment, hormone levels are monitored through saliva and urine, and medications are administered orally or nasally. Without the need for daily injections and constant blood draws, patients experience a truly liberating approach to IVF.
This is a great and gentle approach for those who are scared of needles, struggling with high-dose medication, are prone to OHHS (Ovarian Hyper-Stimulation Syndrome), or have PCOS.
