Fertility Topics Explained from the Experts at SFS
Micro-IVF differs from “conventional IVF” in that when performed on younger women (<36Y) who have normal ovarian reserve (AMH=>2.0ng/ml and basal FSH= <9.0MIU/ml) it requires less effort/time/human resources to conduct, This allows for a significant reduction in cost. The beauty is that success rates with Micro-IVF do not differ significantly from that which is reported for, using “conventional IVF”. It thus provides qualifying candidates with an opportunity to receive treatment at a reduced cost, without compromising outcome. It is important to realize that the cost of infertility treatment is simply a function of the cost of any procedure. Rather it comprises the cost of having a baby. Moreover, in addition to the financial component, there is also an emotional cost. Since the success rate with Micro- IVF is several fold greater than when fertility drugs are used ( with or without intrauterine insemination-IUI), it is my opinion that if there are any associated factors that could lower the chance of success using non-IVF alternatives, IVF should be considered preferentially. The following are examples of where Micro-, should in my opinion, be considered preferentially:
Micro-IVF was devised to serve some women who otherwise might be regarded as candidates for fertility drugs (with or without)IUI . At a success rate of about 40% per Micro-IVF treatment and a cost of about $9,000.00 (which includes monitoring, egg retrieval, fertilization, embryo transfer and embryo freezing but excludes medications, long term embryo banking and PGS testing, and testicular sperm extractions Micro-IVF is significantly less expensive than is conventional IVF.
