Patients who are searching for fertility treatment solutions often suffer from "sticker shock" when they learn about the time and financial costs associated with assisted reproductive technologies (ART). High prices and extensive time requirements can discourage people from seeking reproductive help. The combination of those factors allows Effortless IVF to offer a new, low-cost, and less time-consuming alternative to traditional IVF. Many patients who qualify for traditional IVF treatments are also candidates for Effortless IVF. Our clinic offers this new and innovative form of ART.
The Effortless IVF Difference
Effortless IVF is made possible by a revolutionary new product called INVOcell. INVOcell is a small cylindrical device that allows us to bypass the laboratory incubation period and other expensive elements of traditional IVF treatments. After the woman's eggs are harvested, they are mixed with the sperm in the INVOcell cylinder and placed inside the prospective mother's vagina, providing the natural conditions for incubation. After the five-day incubation period, the embryo will be transferred to the woman's uterus. By allowing the embryos to incubate in the woman's body rather than a lab, we are able to bring down the cost when compared to traditional IVF.
Candidates for Effortless IVF
Effortless IVF is a low-cost, less time-consuming, more efficient method of IVF treatment. Many of the same people who are candidates for traditional IVF are also candidates for effortless IVF. Our aim is to make IVF treatments available for patients who might have otherwise been prohibited because of financial, geographical, or time constraints. Because of its simplicity, this new method can provide patients who do not live near a fertility center with the opportunity to undergo IVF treatment.
As with traditional IVF treatment, effortless IVF may be beneficial for males with low sperm count, low sperm motility, and a high percentage of abnormally-shaped sperm. Women who have blocked or damaged fallopian tubes, which may prevent the eggs from passing through to the uterus, can benefit from this treatment. Women who have ovulatory problems such as PCOS are excellent candidates for effortless IVF. Couples who have unexplained infertility may also benefit from effortless IVF.
Some patients aren't good candidates for effortless IVF, including those suffering from severe male factor infertility and women with very low levels of anti-müllerian hormone (AMH). Women with a very low AMH level typically require a stimulation protocol requiring high amounts of gonadotropins. Because the goal of effortless IVF is to provide patients with a low-cost and less time-consuming method of treatment, these patients may be better candidates for a different type of ART.
Body weight, like AMH, predicts response to fertility injections. Candidates for effortless IVF need to weigh less than 190 pounds and have a BMI less than 35.
Women up to age 45 are candidates for effortless IVF if they meet the other criteria described above.
Our office is dedicated exclusively to offering services that relate to conducting an effortless IVF cycle. We do not offer preimplantation genetic screening (PGS), preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD), or embryo biopsy in conjunction with effortless IVF treatment. Patients will need to see their regular OB/GYN for all other services associated with their pregnancy.
