What's involved ?
Unlike conventional 'full stimulation' IVF, Mild or natural IVF is less invasive.
The drug dosage is enough to encourage at least one follicle to develop and to promote egg growth. As in traditional IVF, once your eggs are ready an injection of hCG or GnRH agonist is given to trigger egg maturation, followed by egg collection.
To help support your body and implantation of the embryos after transfer, progesterone supplements are also given. At Harley Street Fertility Clinic we only recommend mild stimulation or modified natural cycle IVF for very few patients because of its high cancellation and very low success rates.
Is mild IVF right for me?
Modified Natural Cycle IVF may be of benefit if:
- You are over 43 years old
- You’ve responded very poorly to IVF stimulation
- Your results show you have a very low AMH level
We will discuss with you whether it is something you could consider, based on your individual test results and previous treatment history. We would only recommend it as an option if we think it gives you a good chance of success.
