Mini IVF (also known as micro IVF or minimal stimulation IVF) is similar to typical IVF in the procedures used during treatment.
While typical IVF aims to produce several eggs for retrieval, mini IVF uses weaker medications or lower doses of medications to produce only a few eggs.For some women, it’s also possible to do mini IVF with no ovulation stimulation drugs. This is sometimes also known as a “natural cycle.”
The biggest pro to mini IVF is cost. A typical IVF cycle costs on average $15,000, depending on what procedures are needed. Mini IVF costs around $5,000 to 7,000.
