News to me to as of this last week AnnaJuly, thanks for sharing, it was very interesting...My OB just told me about mini-IVF which sounds is not really the same as this, but similar in that its not the full blown medicated IVF treatment.

Good Stuff! :)

That's interesting! I've always read mini or natural IVF have signifigantly lower success rates than full blown. I feel that I respond relatively well to Clomid and I'm young so I feel I would be the perfect candidate for minimal stimulated IVF, but most doctors won't do it. It affects their success rates if it's a failure even though they can mark it as low stimulation cycle.

Your welcome apple:) I like to post new stuff I find.

Soc - that is interesting about docs not wanting to do it.. I wonder do they base success rates on age in some places....

At my RE they break everyone up into 2 groups, under 35 and over 35. Each has different success rates. Those are then broken up into who did ICSI, who's having twins, etc. No one did low stimulation or natural IVF with my RE so there's no statistics on it, but I'm sure it would be seperated into it's own category. It still ends up impacting the full rate of everyone though. :?

Thanks soc - I wondered if they broke it down by age and method if the success rate would be higher ie under 35 and natural.
I think it will become more common in coming years.
