What is a natural cycle IVF?

Natural Cycle IVF

Natural cycle IVF is the same as traditional IVF, however, in the natural cycle, IVF Dr. Nalini Gupta does not use the large amounts of medications to stimulate women ovaries to make multiples eggs. In this procedure also, women receive daily injections towards the end of the cycle to prevent early ovulation. During the procedure, your fertility expert at Select IVF India will give you a small amount of gonadotropin medication to support the growth of your egg. After that, your fertility expert at Select IVF India will monitor your natural cycle IVF with ultrasounds and blood tests to check the growth of your follicle.

After your examination, your fertility expert will perform the egg retrieval procedure when the dominant follicle is determined to be an appropriate size. The retrieved egg will be then fertilized in the laboratory in the same way as traditional IVF. Once the healthy embryo is produced and develops, it is transferred into your uterus as it is done in conventional IVF.

To whom the Natural cycle IVF is recommended

There are women of three groups to whom natural cycle IVF is recommended and they are as follows:

  1. For women who are poor responders for them the natural cycle, IVF is the best option even when ovarian stimulation has repetitively failed to produce multiple embryos.  However, the fertility experts at Select IVF India will not recommend natural cycle IVF for a poor responder, if multiples ovarian stimulation is still possible.
  2. Dr. Nalini Gupta recommends natural cycle IVF to those couples where infertility occurs due to the malefactor which is low or poor quality sperm. In such a case, the natural cycle IVF can provide an opportunity for fertilization through ICSI and at the same time, it avoids the risk of multiple pregnancies and unnecessary stimulation for an otherwise fertile female partner.
  3. Women who are not able to tolerate or do not desire to take hormonal therapy to conceive a baby can still benefit from the IVF process.

Is Natural cycle IVF is same as minimal stimulation IVF?

According to the study, minimal stimulation IVF is different from natural cycle IVF as your fertility expert at Select IVF India will give a small amount of stimulation medication for the entire natural IVF cycle, however, in minimal stimulation they will give oral medications where they will not give you any injections at the beginning or a small number of injections from the beginning of stimulation. Minimal stimulation IVF will involve more drugs than natural cycle IVF but not as much as a full stimulated IVF cycle. Minimal stimulation represents another alternative for patients.
