The goal of ovarian stimulation is to retrieve the maximum number of good quality eggs safely. Choosing ovarian stimulation protocol is based on the woman’ age, Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) levels, basal follicle count, health status, previous IVF treatment history, and family building goals.
For examples, for PCOS or young women who have many follicles on their ovaries, using a gentle stimulation protocol, reducing dose of gonadotropins, and having frequent monitoring may lower the risk of severe ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome. For advanced age women who have diminished ovarian reserve, treatment should be individualized in all steps of ART, including the choice of GnRH analogue, the gonadotropin type and dose, and the possible use of adjuvant therapies.
You might be anxious, especially if this is your first IVF treatment. Some common worries are about taking the medication by oneself, but they are easy to manage, particularly with our mild stimulation protocol. Our team is here for you throughout your treatment. We will guide you and make sure you understand each step of the process, and that you have the information you need. Find out more about our different approach of IVF treatment here.

4. If the eggs fertilize, they become embryos and we grow them for 5-7 days to the blastocyst stage. Our goal is to create as many high-quality embryos as possible. Our state-of-the-art IVF laboratory, highly experienced expert scientists and embryologists provide you with the highest possible chance of success.
5. We choose the best quality embryo and transfer the embryo to your uterus. Genetic testing of the embryo may be recommended case by case.
6. The transfer can be performed 3 or 5 days after egg retrieval (fresh transfer) or in another cycle (frozen transfer). If you have surplus embryos after the fresh transfer, we will freeze them for you to use in the future. We will choose the right timing and transfer protocol that is tailored to your situation. We will get you to do a blood test to see if you are pregnant 9-11 days after embryo transfer.
