IVM (In Vitro Maturation)

IVM (In Vitro Maturation) is the latest advancement in infertility treatment, and offers a new and exciting alternative to conventional IVF. Braverman IVF & Reproductive Immunology offers this option to women whom experience OHSS (Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome). The uniqueness of this procedure is that now, we can retrieve eggs necessary for IVF suing minimal stimulating drugs with very little stimulation of the ovaries. The eggs are then allowed to mature outside the body in our laboratory.

This is wonderful news for women who have to endure the pain and discomfort of hyperstimulation syndrome. We have found that, although, the success rate is not as high as conventional IVF, it is an option for those who wish to avoid a full stimulation IVF cycle. Clearly the savings from the lower medication that is needed is a secondary benefit.

We have similar high success rate at Braverman IVF & Reproductive Immunology for our Fresh and Frozen IVF transfers due to our rapid vitrification procedure.
