It’s a treatment that aims to collect the one egg that normally is produced each cycle, following the normal monthly egg production, and without the use of medications for ovarian stimulation.

After the egg collection is followed the same IVF procedure. Fertilisation, embryo culture and finally freezing.

The IVF on Natural Cycle is advisable to be repeated for several cycles, in order to increase the number of the created embryos, so the chances of finding the right embryo for a successful pregnancy.
