Natural cycle IVF

Patients with poor ovarian reserve ( diminished ovarian reserve or DOR) can be challenging patients to treat. They do have a few eggs left ; and some of them even get pregnant on their own. However, when we superovulate them for IVF, their ovarian response it quite poor; and they often end up growing just 2-3 follicles, inspite of aggressive superovulation.

Natural cycle IVF ( or gentle IVF or minimal stimulation IVF) can be a good option for patients who are poor ovarian responders – especially patients who ovulate on their own. However, it can be difficult to monitor their cycles; and it’s important to find an experienced expert if you want to explore this option.

It’s possible to do natural cycle IVF au naturelle – with no stimulation whatsoever. Some clinics wil use gentle superovulation, with low dose HMG or letrozole.
