Where to begin

Mild IVF

Mild Stimulation IVF uses lower doses of drugs to achieve a mild response and is perfect for women wishing to minimize medication, reduce the risk of Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome (OHSS) and reduce the negative impact on their lives.

Mild IVF – like Natural IVF – is carried out within a woman’s natural menstrual cycle. Conventional IVF focuses on collecting a large number of eggs whereas Mild IVF focuses on collecting fewer, better quality eggs.

By using gentler stimulation and working with the body’s natural cycle, rather than against it, we aim to collect eggs of much higher quality. The treatment time for Mild IVF is just two weeks and involves lower doses of drugs, reducing the risk of Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome (OHSS) and reducing the negative impact on women’s lives.

Pros and Cons of Mild IVF

Pros

  • A lower dose of fertility drugs is required
  • Injections are given for a shorter time period
  • Unlike in conventional IVF, the suppression of natural cycle is not done, which means you will not face any menopausal symptoms
  • Fewer side effects on your body
  • In case the treatment is not successful, it can be repeated more quickly because the body recovers more easily
  • Cost of IVF is lower per cycle

Cons

  • Fewer eggs are collected
  • Fewer embryos are formed, which means there is little choice to select and transfer the best quality embryos
  • Success rates are lower
  • Could prove to be more expensive if multiple cycles are required

Should I go for mild IVF?

Only a detailed discussion with your doctor after completely studying your reports can reveal if mild IVF is for you. It is offered in selective cases where:

  • You have a history of PCOS
  • You are at a high risk of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS)
  • You have chances of adverse reactions to fertility drugs
  • Your ovarian reserve is so low that even after taking the standard amount of fertility drugs only a few eggs are collected (as in older age women)
