Natural IVF Cycle and Standard IVF Cycle
IVF is one of the most effective assisted reproductive technologies performed to assist the couple in achieving parenthood other than natural means. It is done when a couple deals with the problem of infertility, which is a condition that impairs the ability of a couple to produce their own child even after recurrent attempts of conceiving for about a year. During the IVF treatment, the eggs and the sperms are fused in a lab for effectuating fertilization and achieving pregnancy. This is an extensively performed fertility treatment for curing the issue of infertility. There are two types of IVF cycle, natural IVF cycle, and standard IVF cycle, differentiating only on the method by which eggs are attained for the process of fertilization.
In the standard IVF cycle, the fertility drugs and medication is given for triggering her ovulation cycle. The fertility medicines help in producing a better quantity of fertile eggs, which are essential for a healthy pregnancy. After obtaining the eggs, the sperms are collected from the male partner for fertilizing the egg. The eggs and the sperms are combined in a laboratory setting. The fertilization leads to the formation of embryos. At last, in embryo transfer, the embryo is implanted into the recipient’s uterus.
Whereas in the natural IVF cycle, fertility drugs are not used for stimulating the woman’s ovaries. The woman’s body on her own selects the best-quality eggs, which reaches maturity after 7-10 days of the ovulation cycle and retrieved from the woman’s ovaries in a process called embryo transfer. In the natural IVF cycle, the egg retrieval is a simple procedure as there is only one egg that is retrieved from the ovarian office. Sometimes, the egg retrieval can be performed without giving pain medication to the woman as the process takes about 5-10 minutes to complete. Afterward, IVF treatment is performed in the traditional way.
The main reason why a woman opts for natural IVF cycle is that it reduces the cost of the IVF treatment as fertility medicines are not used in this process. Also, some women may experience discomfort with the fertility medication as their body may not respond effectively to the medication.

Difference between Natural IVF Cycle and Standard IVF Cycle
The main difference between a traditional IVF cycle and a natural IVF cycle is that in the traditional IVF cycle, fertility medicines are utilized for inducing the ovulation cycle of the woman so that her ovaries can produce a better quantity of fertile eggs. This helps in ensuring high chances of success in the IVF treatment as the medication triggers the production of multiple eggs. On the other hand, in a natural IVF cycle, there are no fertility drugs or medicines used and the natural egg is retrieved from the woman’s ovaries. The retrieved natural egg is mixed with the sperms in a lab and accordingly, fertilization occurs and an embryo is formed. This embryo is implanted inside the uterus of the woman and consequently, she gets pregnant within two weeks.
In the natural IVF cycle, the risk of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome is less in comparison to the conventional IVF cycle. It is a more effective treatment method involving fewer complexities. During the natural IVF cycle, few fertility medications are given to the woman, which reduces the chances of multiple egg production and multiple pregnancies. It is a low-cost treatment as the cost of the fertility drugs and medications gets eliminated.
The patient undergoing the natural IVF cycle faces less risk as the treatment does not involve the use of high medication. The natural IVF cycle treatment is sometimes also performed in conjunction with the other types of fertility treatments such as ICSI, IMSI, as it helps in producing better results in the fertility treatment.
