Our Mini-IVF™ is a gentle – yet successful – holistic protocol helping to achieve pregnancy success for those women who have been struggling to have a baby. Because lower dosages of fertility medications are prescribed, only 3 to 5 high quality eggs are produce. The best part? Your cost per Mini-IVF™ cycle is reduced because less fertility medications are prescribed. Bottom Line: Pregnancy success rates for Mini-IVF™ are comparable to Conventional IVF.
In addition to reducing your cost for fertility medications, a Mini-IVF™ protocol lessens your physical discomfort.
Mini-IVF™ is the best treatment protocol for:
Mini-IVF™ has also become the preferred treatment protocol for those:
Depending on the woman’s medical needs, an oral fertility medication – typically Clomid – is prescribed to gently stimulate her ovaries into producing multiple eggs. But there’s a catch. In some cases, three or fewer of injectable gonadotropins – Menopur – may be prescribed in combination with Clomid to encourage egg production. Finally, Synarel is delivered nasally 36 hours prior to surgical egg retrieval.
Mini-IVF™ patients are less likely to have leftover embryos to cryopreserve for future Frozen Embryo Transfers (FET). Why does this matter? If a cycle fails, and multiple subsequent fresh Mini-IVF™ cycles are pursued, costs can add up to be greater than a Conventional IVF where multiple embryos are produced and can be cryopreserved.
Another risk of Mini-IVF™ is that a patient could end up producing unhealthy eggs that are not able to be fertilized. Or, the embryos produced in vitro may not be healthy for transfer.
Dr. John Zhang – founder and medical director of New Hope Fertility NYC, developed his trademarked Mini-IVF™ with the goal of producing high quality eggs – not an excessive quantity of low quality eggs.
According to Dr. Zhang:
In many cases, someone who fails a conventional cycle will have better luck with lower stimulation protocol like Mini-IVF™ since it can produce higher quality eggs. – Dr. John Zhang
It is a case-by-case situation, but you should not assume that because one cycle fails, all treatment will. *** Studies show that women can have a higher success with lower stimulation over the course of multiple cycles. By trying another treatment, we have seen better success. – Dr. John Zhang
