Mini or micro IVF. In vitro fertilisation during natural cycles

Mini-IVF (also known as micro or minimal stimulation IVF) is similar to conventional IVF in the procedures used during treatment. As with IVF, you have monitoring throughout the cycle, an egg retrieval, fertilization in the lab of the egg and sperm, and embryo transfer. Mild IVF (mini IVF, micro IVF) is marketed by some fertility doctors as better than standard in vitro fertilization. But success rates are much lower with mini IVF.

This is called “embryo banking”. By doing several rounds of Mini/micro IVF and creating a pile of frozen embryos they only begin to approach the success rates of Traditional IVF. Therefore, Mini/micro IVF costs are significantly higher than a regular IVF cycle performed at a top clinic that is reasonably priced.

Mini IVF, also known as minimal Stimulation IVF or micro IVF, is an Artificial Reproductive Technology procedure similar to standard IVF. The process provides an alternative to conventional IVF using. Micro-IVF or Mini-IVF as it is referred to is not much different than IVF. It requires administration of injectable gonadotropins, periodic ultrasounds and blood tests to monitor response, ultrasound guided egg retrieval and ultrasound guided embryo transfer. Mini IVF, also known as minimal stimulation IVF or micro IVF, is very similar to conventional IVF, in that both treatments incorporate the same basic steps and procedures from start to finish.

Mini IVF is In Vitro Fertilization with a reduced or minimal stimulation protocol. You may see terms like mini, miniature, micro, low stim/stimulation, or even natural (though natural IVF is slightly different) to describe the treatment because there is no industry standard terminology. That is because in truth it’s really just IVF.

Mini IVF means Minimal Stimulation In Vitro Fertilization. Mini IVF involves the same process of fertilization outside of the womb, and transfer of an embryo or blastocyst back into the uterus. However, there’s less medication involved and less “stimulation” of the ovaries. In a nutshell, that’s how the treatment is. At the very bottom of the list of ways to do IVF are the so-called minimal stimulation protocols such as Mini-IVF, Micro-IVF and Intravaginal Culture Devices.

By this again, I mean that these are the methods that carry the absolute lowest probability of success with respect to the other methods. Minimal stimulation IVF (also known as Mini IVF or Natural IVF) offers infertile couples an alternative to traditional IVF. Some people like that Mini IVF differs from standard IVF because it: Has you taking less medication.

All IVF laboratories should have at least two incubators, though with smaller benchtop incubators this can easily be increased to three, where one large, traditional upright incubator is used for equilibrating dishes and benchtop incubators are for embryo culture.

In discussions with psychologists and nurse coordinators at ivf clinics I had learned that there is a typical trajectory for patients, such that treatments that are more expensive or more invasive or, especially, that involve donor sperm or eggs take a while to become acceptable.
