Our doctors offer mini IVF treatment at Pacific Fertility Center in Los Angeles, CA, to patients who have had difficulty conceiving on their own. This treatment continues to gain in popularity and is chosen by patients for a variety of reasons. Mini IVF is similar to traditional IVF, but uses a reduced amount of fertility medication, resulting in fewer eggs being released. Mini IVF may be a good option for patients who have been unsuccessful with traditional IVF treatments and those who would like to conceive with minimal hormonal stimulation.
Why Choose Mini IVF?
Also known as minimal stimulation in vitro fertilization, mini IVF is very similar to traditional IVF, but uses less medication to stimulate egg production. This treatment allows patients to avoid administering daily injections of hormonal medications, which can increase the risk of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS). Mini IVF may also be recommended for patients who have not been successful with other fertility treatments. Many patients who are opposed to traditional treatment for personal or religious reasons may also prefer the low-dosage approach of mini IVF.
Because mini IVF requires much less fertility medication than traditional treatment, the overall costs are reduced, making it a more affordable option for patients.
