Dr. Zhang Explains the Mini-IVF™ to ABC News

27868048 - happy  mother holding smiling child babyAs reported by ABC News, the Mini-IVF™ is a newer and gentler IVF protocol. What’s the real story? As an alternative to Conventional IVF, the Mini-IVF™ has been successfully practiced for over a decade by our fertility specialists. As explained by Dr. John Zhang – Medical Director and CEO of New Hope Fertility Center – to ABC News, You only need one good-quality egg to achieve a live birth. With Mini-IVF™, you make very few eggs, but good quality eggs to achieve a pregnancy. The best part: This holistic IVF protocol is gentle on a woman’s body because patients follow a low-dose oral drug regimen during a fresh cycle – instead of the typical rigorous administration of daily hormone shots.

Benefits of Mini-IVF™

Many women who have failed Conventional IVF have achieved a successful pregnancy after undergoing a Mini-IVF™ – ABC News. That’s not all. Because less medication is used during a Mini-IVF, most women do not have an intolerable experience of unpleasant symptoms – such as extreme swelling/bloating, night sweats, and weight gain.

  • It’s very similar to IVF but you’re not stimulating the ovaries too much with high doses of medication. – Dr. Zaher Merhi, Director of Research and Development in IVF Technologies at New Hope Fertility Center – Fox News
  • There is this feeling that high doses of shots can be detrimental to the quality of eggs. – Merhi Fox News

The Mini-IVF™ is an option for women who may respond better to lower doses of fertility medication. This holistic protocol may help women produce higher quality eggs for successful fertilization. Pregnancy success rates for Mini-IVF are comparable to Conventional IVF without the high cost of large doses of fertility medications.

Mini-IVF™ Protocol

Although medication regimens vary based on the patient’s medical needs, this gentle IVF protocol includes:

  • One Clomid pill consumed daily
  • No more than one to three injections of Menopur
  • A simple nasal spray of Synarel 36 hours prior to egg retrieval instead of repeated progesterone shots

The Mini-IVF protocol prescribes lower dosages of fertility medications so that a woman only produces 3 to 5 high quality eggs. With Mini-IVF™ protocol, the patient’s physical discomfort is lessened because her body is not forced into producing the 10 to 15 eggs typically reached in a Conventional IVF cycle.

  • A fertility medication regimen to produce 3 to 5 quality eggs
  • Cycle monitoring through ultrasound imaging and blood tests
  • Surgical egg retrieval
  • Fertilization of egg and sperm in vitro via (ICSI)
  • Culture and monitoring of embryo(s) via EmbryoScope technology
  • Grading and selection of quality embryo(s) for fresh transfer and/or future (FET)
  • Single Embryo Transfer (SET)
