LaboratoryProcedures

Gentler treatment, better success rates.

What is Natuvitro Laboratory Procedure?

Natural Cycle in vitro fertilisation (IVF) is an advanced alternative to conventional intrauterine insemination (IUI).
It can be done in subsequent cycles without your body needing rest in between so you can make the most of the time you have. At time of ovulation, we aspirate one natural egg in a simple procedure that doesn’t require anaesthesia. This egg is then fertilised in the lab and after a few days of culture, the embryo is placed into your uterus in the same cycle.

Is Natuvitro Laboratory Procedure

the right treatment for me?

 Yes. And we have the success rates to prove it. You can definitely benefit from IVF in Natural Cycle if you:

  • Are younger than 35*.
  • Have mild fertility challenges but don’t want high-dose hormonal stimulation.
  • Are at high risk of developing +Ovarian Hyper Stimulation Syndrome (OHSS).
  • Are challenged by a history of hormone-sensitive cancer or a strong family history of
    cancer.

Success Rates

NatuVitro’s Natural Cycle IVF  success rate per transfer is significantly higher than that of conventional  IVF.
The innovative work we do around Natural Cycle IVF has earned us the honour of being the Reference Clinic of Choice in Europe

The success rate of one  stimulated IVF cycle is  the equivalent of a maximum of 3  natural IVF cycles. This is not to say you will need 3 natural cycles to conceive, if you are young  and healthy, you may get lucky on your first attempt.

* Natural Cycle IVF can be recommended if you are older than 35, depending on your overall health and circumstances. Please contact us to talk about your options.

Common Questions

Visit the FAQ page

How long does the Natural Cycle IVF process take?

The entire process is based on your menstrual cycle and takes around 10 to 14 days. Given its less invasive nature, you can expect fewer injections, blood tests and scans. All of which means less stress for you.

Egg retrieval without anaesthesia sounds terrifying, is it painful?

No. The procedure is performed by a highly-skilled and experienced fertility doctor using very fine instruments. According to a survey conducted in Bern, 80% of women stated the puncture was no worse than having blood drawn. In over 3 000 cycles conducted in Bern, not a single patient had to halt the retrieval because of pain. After the puncture, which takes about 2 minutes, our patients may go home or even return to work.

Where are my embryos stored and how long are they stored?

For Natural Cycle IVF we typically do fresh transfers. If, however, there is a surplus of embryos, we can store them for you for as long as you want. More importantly, we know how important preserving eggs, sperm and embryos is, which is why we have state-of-the-art secure-access rooms with sensors and alarms that are monitored around the clock.

What happens after my Natural Cycle IVF treatment?

You can go home or even straight back to work, it’s entirely up to you. We will ask you to come in for a pregnancy test in two weeks’ time.
