Like any other IVF procedure, there are some risks associated with minimal stimulation IVF technique too.
1 of 5
The fertility drugs that accompany the minimal stimulation IVF technique may cast side effects. However, those side-effects are not as severe as those inflicted by other IVF techniques. Given the benefits that mini-IVF offers, a patient must consult with an IVF specialist to gain awareness about other risk factors. It is also to be noted that the success rates of this procedure are comparatively lower than other methods.
Which of these are the principal benefits of minimal stimulation IVF technique?
2 of 5
Minimal stimulation IVF focuses mainly on ensuring the quality of the embryo while eliminating the risks associated with hyper-stimulation. As a result, the procedure not only cuts the cost of medicine significantly but also reduces the number of injections a patient requires while undergoing the procedure. Mini IVF simply improves the embryo quality while minimizing the risks of poor quality embryo production. Consult with an IVF specialist to gain knowledge about the entire procedure and your chances.
Only injectable fertility drugs are used in minimal stimulation IVF technique.
3 of 5
In minimal stimulation, IVF patients are given low doses of clomiphene citrate for around ten days to twelve days. No injectable fertility drug is used during this procedure. However, very low doses of injectable hormones can be used to prevent premature ovulation and to obtain small amounts of eggs while avoiding hyper-stimulation. Women can undergo this procedure with sedation only. Therefore, no additional risks of anesthesia or associated higher costs are involved.
Which of these criterions of women are ideal for opting for mini IVF technique?
4 of 5
The minimal stimulation IVF technique is ideal for anyone who ever had an issue or poor response to stimulation IVF while having an FSH or follicle-stimulating hormone above 10. Apart from this, women that have suffered from the repeated poor quality of embryo can find this technique useful. The same applies to those that respond poorly despite having normal FSH levels. Even women above 40 years with FGSH more than ten may consider mini IVBFD as a useful fertility option.
For those women who don't want to take fertility medications, mini-IVF can be ideal.
5 of 5
When it comes to opting for fertility options, often, many women do not prefer taking injectable fertility drugs. This one major factor makes minimal stimulation IVF a success among such women. The process requires no injectable fertility drugs at all, and a small number of eggs are collected during this procedure. Therefore, the process does not cause any inconvenience that is associated with traditional IVF procedures.
Tip: Minimal stimulation IVF techniques consume less time and are more comfortable.
