Soft-IVF (mini IVF, minimal stimulation IVF) is Bay IVF's registered, unique In Vitro Fertilization treatment. It represents a new approach to treating infertility by combining gentle ovarian stimulation with the latest advances in embryology laboratory techniques.
Soft-IVF treatment consists of taking oral medications and approximately five to six shallow, subcutaneous injections to stimulate the development of a moderate number of as high-quality eggs as possible (quality over quantity). Ultrasound examinations are used to monitor progress. The egg retrieval procedure, oocyte fertilization, and embryo culture do not differ from conventional IVF.
Soft-IVF can be a very effective treatment for male factor infertility and should be considered as a much better alternative to intrauterine insemination (IUI) treatment.
