How the Natural Cycle IVF™ Can Increase Your Pregnancy Chances

Healthy Baby (2)-486032-editedThe Natural Cycle IVF™ is a celebrated holistic IVF protocol. The best part? The Natural Cycle IVF™ is almost completely drug-free – compared to Conventional IVF and Mini-IVF™. A woman’s body may need only a little coaxing to achieve a pregnancy with her one high quality egg produced during a natural menstrual cycle. Bottom Line: Her single, natural egg is the very best a woman can produce – without the need for numerous, costly, painful, self-administered fertility medication injections.

Natural Cycle IVF™ Overview

A high quality egg is produced by women through Natural Cycle IVF™. This holistic IVF protocol offers New Hope Fertility Center patients the opportunity to avoid the health risks and expense of high dosages of fertility medications – as well as the trepidation and pain of daily injections.

Here’s the deal:                                                

  • As a woman’s natural cycle begins, the doctor will monitor the growth of her one good egg through ultrasound imaging and blood tests.
  • Once her natural egg has reached a prime stage of development, an ovulation trigger medication – hCG – will be self-administered by the patient at a designated time
  • On a scheduled date, the egg will be surgically retrieved in an outpatient procedure while the patient is under general anesthesia
  • After surgical retrieval, the egg will be fertilized in vitro through a procedure known as Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)
  • ICSI is an ancillary IVF procedure in which one quality sperm is directly injected into the woman’s natural egg
  • Once a high quality embryo has cultured in vitro to a prime stage of development – it will then be transferred to the woman’s uterus via a thin catheter – similar to a Pap smear procedure
  • A pregnancy test is scheduled in approximately two weeks

Pregnancy Success Rates Using Natural Cycle IVF™

Even though fertility medications are not prescribed, the pregnancy success rate for Natural Cycle IVF™ rivals those of Conventional IVF and Mini-IVF™.
