What is Mild IVF?

Mild IVF – like Natural IVF – is carried out within a woman’s natural menstrual cycle. Conventional IVF focuses on collecting a large number of eggs where as Mild IVF focuses on collecting fewer, better quality eggs.

By using gentler stimulation and working with the body’s natural cycle, rather than against it, we aim to collect eggs of much higher quality. The treatment time for Mild IVF is just two weeks and involves lower doses of drugs, reducing the risk of Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome (OHSS) and reducing the negative impact on women's lives.

Who is it for?

  • Those with a normal egg reserve
  • Those that are having treatment due to a male factor
  • Patients with Polycystic Ovaries/Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS).
  • Those that want to take a lower amount of drugs
  • Those that want to reduce the physical and psychological burden associated with conventional IVF

  • Initial Consultation & Scan

    The first step is for you to come in for an Initial Consultation & scan where one of our IVF Consultants will assess you and devise a personalised treatment plan which will give you the best chance of success.

  • Treatment Consultation

    2 weeks before the start of your period you will come in to meet with a fertility nurse who will talk you through your treatment plan and go through the consent forms with you.

  • Scans & Blood tests

    You will have 2 or 3 monitoring scans usually spaced days apart; each takes 20 minutes. The doctor may perform blood tests at these appointments.

  • Egg collection

    This procedure is performed in the theatre under sedation and takes around 45 minutes.

  • Embryo Transfer

    The embryo transfer is a quick and easy procedure which does not need sedation and feels similar to a smear test

  • Pregnancy test

    We will invite you back to the clinic for a pregnancy blood test and give you the test results by the end of the day.
