The most effective fertility treatments are tailored to the unique needs of each individual. For women who wish to avoid the use of fertility medication or who are not likely to respond to medication, natural cycle IVF may be the best option.
Natural Cycle IVF
Normal IVF protocols rely heavily upon the use of fertility medication. However, some women wish to avoid fertility medication due to their personal beliefs. Other women may be more susceptible to developing complications from fertility medication, including OHSS. Another group of women may just not respond well to fertility medication. All of these women can potentially benefit from a natural IVF cycle.
Natural cycle IVF is done with no fertility medication. Instead, a woman's cycle progresses naturally. Once the egg she produced on her own is mature, it is harvested and fertilized. Naturally produced eggs are of the highest quality and are well suited to be fertilized and to implant. The embryo produced from the single egg is then transferred back into the uterus.
Advantages of Natural IVF
There are a number of advantages to a natural IVF protocol. So much so that many women find that this cycle type is the most effective for their medical needs. Advantages of a natural IVF protocol include:
- A comfortable cycle without side effects from fertility medication
- No risk of developing OHSS
- Providing a treatment option for those who are unable to produce multiple eggs or who are not likely to respond to fertility medication
- The ability to do a fresh embryo transfer as the uterine lining has not been impacted by the use of fertility medications
Women who are over age 35, women who wish to have holistic care, and women who are unable to use fertility medication can all benefit from this type of protocol.
