Cheaper And Placid IVF Treatment Technique Still Remains Unpopular

In vitro fertilization (IVF) is one of the costly fares the couples have to consider after a long trial. The general IVF procedure is way too costly and on the other hand, this new IVF technique is easier, safer and cheaper for the reproductive women.   The fertility drugs use also reduces which are usually required for ovaries survival.

This method named “Minimal stimulation IVF” basically focuses on maturing three to five eggs. This can help even the poor responders, ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome patients, and ethical concerns regarding the freezing of remaining embryos. The minimal stimulation has not yet gained momentum owing to the latest national report from the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) suggesting that only 2.4% of 208,000 IVF cycles in 2015 is accounted. The less chance of conceiving is the reason behind the unpopularity of the technique. According to Alan Penzias from Harvard Medical School, the live birthrate is very low in case of minimal stimulation. The overall high-tech baby-making procedure is full of controversies, hype, and variations.

The cut down of the conventional dose of drugs like gonadotropin, use of the shorter-acting drug, and freezing of embryos for future use can help women build a family.
