As detailed in the above introduction, mini IVF is less invasive on your body and is ideal for women who does not want heavy stimulation of the ovaries or too many shots. It also reduces the risk of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome. Moreover, it is less expensive as you are using minimal drugs for your stimulation.Also mini IVF is similar to a natural cycle and has minimal side effects on the body.
The disadvantage of mini IVF is that fewer eggs are retrieved per treatment cycle due no stimulation or minimal stimulation of the ovaries. Hence, it may require more than one cycle to retrieve enough eggs for fertilization before embryo transfer can be done.
