Poor responders to fertility medication are thought of by many to be poor candidates for IVF treatment. This is because traditional IVF protocols rely heavily upon fertility medication in order to replace a woman’s natural fertility. Poor responder success rates can be high when treatment is individualized to each woman’s exact needs.
New Hope Fertility Center is leading provider of more holistic IVF protocols. Their Mini IVF and Natural Cycle IVF protocols give poor responders success rates that rival that of traditional IVF. Learn more about each protocol below:
- Mini IVF – Mini IVF focuses on developing a small number of high quality eggs. By using small doses of fertility drugs a woman’s body is delicately stimulated to produce between two and five eggs.
- Natural Cycle IVF – Rather than using medication to prompt the growth of eggs, a natural IVF cycle harvests the egg a woman produces on her own every month. That egg may then be fertilized and the resulting embryo returned to the mother for implantation.
Because the focus is on retrieving high quality eggs, there is no need to focus on quantity. New Hope has a “one good egg” policy, because all it takes to have a healthy baby is one good egg. This philosophy can also be seen in the center’s belief in single embryo transfer. Transferring multiple embryos does not increase the likelihood of getting pregnant. However, it substantially increases the likelihood of a multiple pregnancy, which can have negative health consequences for mother and baby.
New Hope transfers an average of 1.48 embryos per IVF cycle. This compares to 2.92 embryos nationally as reported by SART, the Society of Reproductive Technology. If the number of embryos transferred were equalized, the success rates for our minimal stimulation protocols and traditional IVF would be similar to the reported success rates. When reviewing success rates it is important to recognize that SART data is comprised of traditional IVF protocols using ideal candidates. If you do not fall into that categories, the success rates are not necessarily reflective of what you could expect.
