Natural Cycle IVF

Natural Cycle IVF is an excellent choice for:

  • Women considered to be “poor responders”
  • Couples whose infertility is due to male factor
  • Women who can’t or don’t want to take hormones in order to conceive

While conventional IVF is often a necessary route to achieve pregnancy, many patients are excellent candidates for a simpler process called “Natural Cycle IVF” which does not use medications to hyperstimulate the ovaries to produce multiple follicles.

Then, around the 10th day of your cycle, we will retrieve the egg in a simple in-office procedure and fertilize it in the same way as conventional IVF.

If an embryo is produced, we will transfer it to the uterus using traditional IVF methods.

There are many advantages to doing a natural cycle IVF over traditional IVF, including:

  • Less expensive (the cost is only $5,500*)
  • Less stressful (emotionally and physically)
  • Fewer side effects
  • Fewer office visits
  • No risk of hyperstimulation
  • Very low or no gonadotropin injections
  • No production of excess embryos
  • Virtually eliminates the risk of multiple pregnancies
