In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) in Tampa

In vitro fertilization (IVF) is one of the more advanced fertility treatments to help couples conceive. There are a few different types of IVF protocols and your fertility doctor will work with you to customize your treatment plan.

IVF Protocols

IVF may or may not begin with the use of hormone suppression drugs, like birth control pills, and often involves the use of ovarian stimulation fertility drugs. Once ovarian follicles mature, egg retrieval is performed. The eggs are then fertilized in the lab with sperm from your partner or a sperm donor, and grown in a lab culture. After a few days, the embryos are transferred back into the uterus and a blood pregnancy hormone test is administered approximately two weeks later to determine if the cycle was successful.
Some of the most common IVF Protocols include:

  • Lupron Down Regulation (Long Lupron)
  • Antagonist
  • Micro-Dose Lupron Flare

You may be a candidate for one of the traditional IVF protocols or work with your doctor to design a Natural Cycle IVF or Mini-IVF protocol. Each protocol has proven success for patients with specific fertility diagnoses. For example, patients with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) respond well to Antagonist protocols while women with High FSH or Diminished Ovarian Reserve (DOR) see better success with a Micro-Dose Lupron Flare or Mini-IVF protocol. It is important to see a fertility doctor who has expertise in treating fertility patients with your diagnosis.
