Previous severe OHSS with conventional IVF and she nearly died – Now pregnant after drug-free Natural IVF/IVM

01 Oct 2012

Harriet, 34 years old had PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome). She had tried conventional IVF elsewhere, got severe OHSS (Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome) and nearly died in intensive care unit. She was warned that further conventional IVF treatment would put her at risk again. She had given up hope of having her own baby. Two years later she was told about Natural Cycle IVF/IVM and came to us. Last year we successfully transferred one embryo following IVM with no drugs and now she is eight months pregnant! She believes that Natural IVF/IVM should be used widely to avoid risks of OHSS and other health risks to women with conventional, drug stimulated IVF.
