Natural IVF | Natural Cycle IVF

Natural IVF, also known as Natural Cycle IVF, is a form of IVF treatment which is significantly gentler on the body compared to conventional IVF. CREATE Fertility is a pioneer in offering this IVF treatment as an option for patients who have low ovarian reserve.

We are the largest provider of Natural IVF in the UK, with a range of clinics across the country. We offer a healthier and safer option for women wishing to conceive with little or no drugs, fewer side-effects and reduced stress.


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.

What are the benefits of Natural IVF?

Higher quality eggs
Higher quality eggs

The egg which is naturally selected by the body can be of higher quality than those produced in a stimulated IVF cycle.

Better implantation
Better implantation

By avoiding stimulating drugs, the womb is more receptive to pregnancy.

Healthier babies

The Natural IVF process

Initial scan and consultation
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.
