Benefits of Mild IVF

17 Dec 2012

Having a baby is one of the most life-changing and beautiful experiences you can ever have. Conceiving a baby naturally however can pose some difficulties which are by no means down to the individuals concerned. Here at Create Health Clinic, we are dedicating to providing you with the safest and most effective alternatives to conceiving naturally. Our IVF treatments are tailored to you. We give you the opportunity to sit down with one of our friendly and experienced consultants to openly discuss every option that you have and determine the best course of action. You are our main concern and we understand the attention that each treatment needs. IVF has come on heaps and bounds since the birth of the first IVF baby, Louise Brown in 1978. Whilst many of the fundamental methods and steps are the same, the effectiveness of the drugs in reducing the possible side-effects has become important and improved factors. Everything is carefully considered from success rates to the patient’s safety and comfort. The science and technology involved is some of the latest and most refined around and with the expertise and knowledge of our qualified and skilled doctors and consultants you could not be in safer hands. Your understanding of our treatments is one of our top priorities.

So what is involved in our Mild (Soft) IVF Treatment?

It is conducted within a woman’s own menstrual cycle. Minimal doses of stimulation drugs are used for a shorter period (5-9 days). There is no downregulation or ovarian suppression phase (no long-protocol). The aim is to collect 2-7 eggs with a physiological approach. This lower dosage over a shorter period in your natural cycle is encouraged as the first choice due to it being less drugs intensive, less invasive and less expensive. The drugs used do not supress a woman’s natural cycle, which not only shortens the length of treatment by two weeks but also avoids menopausal side effects. Low dose drugs are used to mature eggs and the lining of womb is not exposed to high level of drugs. The aim is “quality and not quantity”. A safer, successful and less expensive method, Mild IVF holds many benefits for aspiring parents and we will be there for you every step of the way. Our website is full of information about our different IVF treatments as well as an extensive look at our other health services.
