Mini and Natural IVF

Traditional IVF involves the use of fertility medication to encourage the production and release of multiple eggs. Patients who wish to undergo natural IVF do not take medication. We also offer mini IVF, which uses smaller doses of medication to stimulate more than one egg to grow to maturity.

IVF Risks

IVF is a safe and effective procedure, but it is not without risks. It is important for patients to understand these risks before undergoing treatment. In addition to standard surgical risks, there is also the chance of ectopic pregnancy, ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome, and miscarriage.

Gamete intrafallopian transfer (GIFT) and zygote intrafallopian transfer (ZIFT) are techniques that allow gametes and zygotes to be transferred into the fallopian tubes for patients who have cervical obstruction, cervical stenosis, or multiple failed IVF attempts.

After the IVF Procedure

Immediately after your IVF procedure, you should rest for the remainder of the day. In the days following the embryo transfer, you should take progesterone as instructed to increase the chances of implantation and successful pregnancy. You should also maintain a healthy lifestyle and diet.
