Fertility issues in women can be the result of many health concerns. One of the first indicators of an issue with fertility is irregular cycles, however, In vitro fertilization or IVF with irregular cycles can be successful depending on the reason for the irregularity.
How does IVF with irregular cycles work?
Your IVF cycle begins with monitoring. We closely monitor your body’s progress to determine your unique needs. Our treatment protocols work with your natural fertility as opposed to replacing it. We offer three options for IVF treatment.
For patients with high FSH causing the irregular cycles:
- Natural IVF – This treatment plan is done without fertility medication. Instead, we closely monitor your cycle through blood work and ultrasound. At the appropriate time, we harvest and fertilize the one egg your body produces naturally. Natural IVF is a fit for women who want to avoid fertility medication or who are unlikely to respond to fertility medication. Additionally, this treatment may be less expensive due to the absence of fertility medication.
For women with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome or PCOS, where the irregularity is the result of not ovulating:
- Mini IVF – Using a minimal amount of fertility medications we aim to produce between three and five eggs that are of a high quality. This protocol is ideal for women who want to avoid the discomfort of ovarian hyper-stimulation (OHSS), want to limit the amount of fertility medication used or who want to avoid the wait time in between cycles.
- Traditional IVF- Traditional IVF uses daily injections of fertility medication to stimulate your body to produce a large number of eggs. Traditional IVF works for women who are primarily concerned with the quantity of eggs that are harvested. This is also a good protocol for women younger than 35 who are likely to produce more than three to five high quality eggs.
