IVM? Anyone heard of IV Maturation?

Postby waiting for 4 » Wed Jul 01, 2009 7:55 pm

i read an article today and wanted to see if yall had any more input on the topic. Have yall heard of IVM (in vitro maturation)? it looks like they only medicate for 3 days then retrieve immature eggs and mature them in the lab.

I was thinking since my egg quality isn't too great, maybe this would be a better route to take since my RE thinks the intense meds of IVF only worsen their condition. Any thoughts?

It's a new technology, and few clinics are doing it. Perhaps some patients with poor oocyte quality might benefit from it. In the reports I have seen, the success rates were not great.

I was thinking it might be a good option for cancer patients who wish to preserve their fertility.
