When you're ready to start a family, it can be stressful if conception doesn't come easily.
Infertility, which can affect both women and men, can be emotionally and physically difficult to cope with, and the infertility specialists at the Florida Institute for Reproductive Sciences and Technologies in Weston, South Florida are here to help you through your journey to becoming a parent.
One option for helping you conceive is Natural Cycle IVF, offered by the infertility specialists at our Weston, South Florida office. You'll be under the direct care of Dr. Minna Selub, Dr. Kimball Pomeroy, and Dr. Nirvika Singh. This limited-injection option uses oral medication rather than intravenous administration, making it both less painful and less expensive while still effective in helping you create the family of your dreams.
What is Natural Cycle IVF?
Natural Cycle IVF from our Weston Florida Infertility Specialist uses an oral medication to stimulate the development of eggs and ovarian follicles, helping the body to create stronger eggs and increase your chances of growing more for than one egg for retrieval.
One the eggs have matured, your infertility specialist at our Weston, South Florida office will give you an injection to spur ovulation. The eggs will be harvested around 36 hours later and retrieved using a thin needle. Viable eggs will be fertilized in our lab, and if an embryo develops it will be placed back in your uterus.
What are the benefits of Natural Cycle IVF?
- Lower cost
- No daily injections
- No regular blood drawing to monitor hormone levels
- Reduced risk of multiple pregnancies
- Less risk of excess embryo production
- No risk of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome
While many appreciate the largely needle-free aspect of Natural Cycle IVF, as well as its greater affordability, those considering the procedure should know it has a lower success rate per egg retrieval than traditional IVF. Ask your Weston Florida Infertility Specialist about which version of IVF is best suited for your needs.
