What is Natural IVF

Natural IVF involves egg collection aligned with a woman's natural menstrual cycle; there are fewer or no fertility drugs/injections. It aims to collect the one egg that has been naturally selected and matured by the body, and the fertilised egg/embryo is placed back into the lining of the womb.

Natural IVF is therefore the closest that IVF treatment can get to natural fertilisation. It focuses on the quality of eggs, not the quantity. Natural IVF is a delicate and precise treatment. For the best chance of success, the clinic must be 100% dedicated to this type of approach.

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
  • 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.
