Natural IVF is a safe and holistic way of utilizing IVF technology without the use of fertility medications. Historically, IVF treatments required the use of large doses of fertility medication. This is no longer the case. It is possible to benefit from IVF naturally, without the side effects commonly seen with fertility medication.
Natural IVF does not aim to push the body with medication to produce a large number of eggs. In fact, only one egg is needed to do a natural IVF protocol. During the cycle, the woman’s body is closely monitored. Once the egg has reached the appropriate maturity level, it is harvested and fertilized. The resulting embryo is then transferred directly into the mother’s uterus.
There are several advantages do doing a natural in-vitro protocol:
- No side effects – Because no fertility medication is used, women do not experience the side effects of using such medication. This makes the cycle safer and more comfortable for the patient.
- No wait time – When fertility medication is used to stimulate ovaries, it can have an adverse effect on a woman’s uterine lining. This means there is often a waiting period between IVF cycles. Additionally, it is common to have to do a frozen embryo transfer to allow time for the uterine lining to develop without the effects of the medicine. With few exceptions, Natural IVF is done with a fresh embryo transfer.
- Healthier egg – An egg produced naturally by a woman’s body is the healthiest and best equipped for fertilization.
Natural in-vitro protocols also increase the number of women who can take advantage of IVF treatment. Women who are unable to produce a large number of eggs during a cycle or who may not respond to fertility medication are great candidates for a natural protocol.IVF Treatment with Fewest Health Risks
