Natural Cycle IVF

Natural Cycle IVF involves collecting the one egg that has been naturally selected by your body during your menstrual cycle and fertilising it in the laboratory.

This treatment is carried out without the use of stimulation medication. In your Initial Consultation and Scan you will be able to discuss whether Natural IVF could be the right treatment option for you.

Advantages:

  • No stimulating drugs
  • Significantly reduced potential of risks and side effects
  • No risk of Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome (OHSS)
  • Opportunity for some women to have a child with their own eggs rather than donor eggs.
  • Natural IVF is less expensive per cycle than Stimulated IVF treatments.
  • By avoiding stimulating drugs, the womb is more receptive to pregnancy.

Who is it for?

  • Women with low AMH or low egg reserve
  • Women who have had previous failure of implantation with conventional IVF
  • Women who want to avoid drugs or injections

By using little to no drugs, Natural and Mild IVF treatments are considerably kinder to women's bodies and carry fewer side effects and short and long-term health risks than conventional treatments.

Natural Modified IVF

In Natural Modified IVF, medication is given for around 3-4 days to block spontaneous ovulation and to support a naturally selected follicle.

We recommend this for women with a low ovarian reserve, but if you would like to learn more about whether this could be the best option for you, then your clinician will discuss this in more detail at your Initial Consultation and Scan.

Advantages:

  • Improved success rate compared with Natural Cycle IVF and retains many of the benefits
  • Higher egg and embryo quality compared with conventional IVF
  • Greatly reduced risks and side effects
  • Reduced risk of Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome (OHSS)
  • More affordable treatment costs

Who is it for?

  • Women with low AMH or low egg reserve
  • Women who have had previous failure of implantation with conventional IVF
  • For those who have a strong family history of breast, ovarian and other oestrogen dependant cancers
  • Opportunity for some women to have a child with their own eggs rather than donor eggs

Mild IVF

In Mild IVF, lower doses of hormones are given for a short period (around 5-9 days) in a woman's own natural cycle with an aim to achieve a "mild response" from the ovaries.

It is aimed at "quality and not quantity" of eggs and embryos. The total dose and duration of stimulation aims to be lower than in a conventional IVF cycle. In your Initial Consultation and Scan, your clinician will discuss in more detail whether Mild IVF is the right treatment option for you.

Advantages:

  • Excellent success rates
  • Fewer side effects and risks
  • Higher egg and embryo quality compared with conventional IVF
  • Better for implantation
  • Reduced risk of Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome (OHSS)
  • More affordable treatment costs

Who is it for?

  • Women with a normal egg reserve
  • Those that are having treatment due to a male factor
  • Women with PCO/PCOS
  • Women that want to take a lower amount of drugs
  • Those who wish to reduce the physical and psychological burden associated with conventional IVF
