Natural IVF


Have you ever heard of natural IVF?

It may be a good option for women who are hesitant to use the hormones and/or fertility drugs, or for medical reasons shouldn’t use them.

Although the success rate is lower, it is an option to file away in your ttc bag of treatments.

How does it work?

It is similar to what we think of as an IVF procedure these days……minus the hormones and fertility drugs. When a woman ovulates, doctors harvest one egg to be fertilized and implanted.

Interestingly, when IVF was first introduced, this is exactly how it was done!!!

So if you are younger and not feeling rushed to become pregnant, or if you have had cancer and are worrying about the hormones causing havoc in your body, or if you are just interested in finding out more about the procedure, check with your doctor for more information!
