Mild IVF treatment requires the use of a mild dosage of stimulation, or in simpler terms, less medication. The objective is to get just a few good quality eggs to ensure one good quality embryo.
It is particularly suitable for patients who have a reduced ovarian reserve or a low egg reserve but are still able to produce good quality eggs. It is also indicated where there is a low number of follicles, or if the ovaries are polycystic.
In these instances, through the use of less medication, mild IVF treatment enables a good number of eggs to be retrieved that are also of better quality.
