Natural Cycle IVF is a treatment plan where no hormone stimulating medications are used. A single egg would then be collected as a part of a women’s natural menstrual cycle.
Natural Cycle IVF is a recommended option for women who do not respond well to hormonal stimulation or women who have a very low ovarian reserve, which can be detected from your initial screening blood tests. It utilises the body’s natural hormones and can be repeated more often if necessary.
The process and steps involved are similar to traditional IVF though stimulating medication is not given in the first seven to ten days. The hCG injection is still required. The success rates are lower than traditional IVF because only one egg can be fertilised and then transferred at a time.
