Stimulated IVF Vs Natural Cycle IVF
As the name implies, natural cycle IVF uses no drugs to facilitate egg production. Patients are monitored in a natural cycle with ultrasounds and blood work to track the growth of the dominant follicle. An egg retrieval is then performed when the dominant follicle is determined to be an appropriate size. The egg that is retrieved is then fertilized in the laboratory in the same way as traditional IVF. If an embryo is produced and continues to develop, it is transferred back to the uterus, again in the same manner as conventional IVF.
On the other hand, stimulated IVF uses drugs to shut the menstrual cycle down (‘down-regulation’) before re-starting it again, and uses high doses of stimulating drugs to grow lots of follicles. Natural IVF however does not shut the cycle down but works within it, and the process is focused on collecting the one follicle naturally selected by the body.
Pregnancy and live birth rates for conventional IVF cycles are dramatically higher than natural cycle IVF. In fact, one may have to undergo three to four natural cycles in order to achieve a successful pregnancy-compared to one stimulated IVF cycle, in most cases.
