What is natural cycle IVF?

Natural cycle IVF is a form of In-Vitro Fertilization that does not involve the use of fertility drugs for ovarian stimulation. It relies on the body’s natural ovulation process to retrieve a single, naturally matured egg for fertilization.

Understanding Natural Cycle IVF

Unlike traditional IVF, natural cycle IVF aims to collect and fertilize the one egg that has been naturally selected by the body during the menstrual cycle.

Advantages of Natural Cycle IVF

  • Lower Cost
  • Reduced Side Effects
  • No Risk of Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome (OHSS)

Limitations and Risks

While natural cycle IVF has its advantages, it also comes with limitations such as lower success rates and the risk of cycle cancellation due to natural ovulation.

Is Natural Cycle IVF Right for You?

Consulting a healthcare provider for a comprehensive fertility assessment is crucial to determine if natural cycle IVF is the right option for you.


Natural cycle IVF offers a less invasive alternative to traditional IVF but comes with its own set of pros and cons that should be carefully considered.
