Natural IVF is the method by which Louise Brown was conceived. The first baby born by using in vitro fertilization when the full stimulation protocols were not yet popular. It involves the collection and the fertilization of the one naturally selected egg which a woman produces every month. No medications, no injections and no stress. It is a treatment option for all the age groups wishing to avoid medication and optimizing the egg quality in case of low ovarian reserve.
Modified Natural IVF is a customized natural approach using very low doses of fertility medications for 2-3 days in order to encourage the natural selection of more that 1 egg and increasing the number of embryos created.
Step up your natural modified IVF by stimulating your ovaries for 5-8 days aiming for >5 good quality eggs collected. The gentle stimulation preserves the quality of your eggs in contrast with the older aggressively stimulating protocols which can lead to more eggs but worse quality with short and long-term side effects for you and the baby. There is clear evidence that the mild approach in order to harvest the eggs produces more fertilised eggs and bigger, full term healthy babies.
