Minimal stimulation IVF or Mini IVF treatment provides a more holistic approach to traditional IVF care. By personalizing the treatment to each woman’s exact needs, a mini IVF can achieve high success rates despite using significantly less fertility medication. Understanding the benefits of a mini IVF protocol can help you decide if this treatment protocol will meet your needs.
Fewer Side Effects with Mini IVF
One of the major concerns of those facing fertility treatment is side effects. These side effects are the result of the fertility medication that is used to rebuild a person’s natural fertility. Mini IVF uses significantly less fertility medication, reducing the chance of developing OHSS and making for a more comfortable cycle. Because stimulation is primarily achieved through oral IVF medication, much of the discomfort associated with injectable medication is avoided.
Better Egg Quality than Traditional IVF
Traditional IVF treatment focuses on producing a large quantity of eggs. Unfortunately, many of the eggs retrieved will be of low quality and unsuitable for fertilization. These eggs are ultimately discarded and not used for fertilization. Additionally, low quality eggs are more likely to result in poor quality embryos, resulting in failed IVF cycles. Mini IVF protocols focus on producing a small quantity of high quality eggs. These eggs are better suited for fertilization and produce success rates that rival that of traditional IVF protocols.
Personalized Approach with Mini IVF
Mini IVF treatment is specifically tailored to the unique needs of each patient. Each woman only receives the exact amount of medication needed to support her body during the cycle. This is achieved using oral fertility medication throughout the cycle. Additionally, up to three injections may be used to further support the production of a small number of eggs. Personalizing treatment avoids unnecessary medication and side effects throughout the cycle.
