Holistic IVF Procedure

Dr. Randy S. Morris – founder and medical director of IVF1 in Chicago – uses an evidence based approach to determine the protocol for every IVF procedure performed.

  • The patient undergoing Minimal Stimulation IVF is administered a limited amount of hormone medication to stimulate the development of 3 to 5 egg follicles
  • The development of the patient’s egg follicles are monitored throughout the woman’s egg growth stage of her cycle with blood level hormone measurements and pelvic ultrasounds
  • The doctor determines the prime time to induce ovulation via hCG injection administration
  • The patient’s eggs are surgically retrieved by the doctor using a transvaginal ultrasound-guided aspiration tool
  • Minimal Stimulation IVF is a simple outpatient surgical procedure performed under local anesthesia – the patient can resume normal activities the day after the procedure
  • The patient’s eggs are then fertilized with sperm in a controlled embryological laboratory
  • Embryos are continuously monitored until they reach an optimum stage of development
  • Only high grade embryos are transferred to the woman’s uterus via an insemination catheter
