If you are interested in pursuing fertility treatments but want to do so with a lower dose of medication, then Minimal IVF may be a suitable option for you. Minimal IVF is an alternative IVF treatment in which lower doses of medication are prescribed, leading to less aggressive ovarian stimulation. This is optimal for patients who may be low or poor responders despite using high doses of medications in a past cycle. Due to the lower medication dosage, the cost for this type of cycle is generally lower as fewer monitoring appointments are needed. Patients would still undergo an egg retrieval, and typically a smaller number of eggs is retrieved than in an traditional IVF cycle. An embryo(s) is still cultured in our laboratory, and PGT may or may not be performed depending on your discussion with your physician.
