Good News! At MyIVF, we now offer Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) in addition to In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF), Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) and Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET) procedures. IUI is one of the simpler, less complex and less invasive treatment options available to you. It is often the starting point for many individuals or couples who experiencing difficulty trying to conceive, so we are excited to now offer the treatment at MyIVF. And if we find from your results that you need more advanced treatment – donor, genetic screening – we will refer you to a specialist from Monash IVF to help you continue on your journey.

We offer short patient friendly cycles, so at MyIVF it’s up to you as to how quickly you want to move through the process. On average the time frame from a patient’s first day of a period to pregnancy test is approximately four weeks. IVF can be an incredibly difficult time, so by offering a shorter treatment time, it can alleviate some of that stress.

MyIVF is unique in the low-cost IVF market in that we offer extended embryo culture and transfer for all of our patients to maximise your chances of having a baby.

And Level 1 Medical Evidence supports the statement that pregnancy rates are highest after waiting until day 4 or 5 (morula or blastocyst) as opposed to day 2 or 3 (cleavage) stage to transfer the embryo into the uterus. More information about extended embryo culture and transfer pregnancy rates can be found here.

Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)

Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) is a simple treatment procedure that involves helping sperm to reach the uterus. IUI involves a fertility specialist inseminating sperm via a catheter through a woman’s cervix. It is a simple procedure that only takes a few minutes to complete and can be likened to a pap smear.

In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF)

In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) involves the administering of drugs to the woman to stimulate her ovaries to produce mature eggs (average 3-6 eggs), which are then collected through a surgical procedure. The fertilisation of the eggs by the sperm occurs outside the body in the lab with the resulting embryo being placed back into the woman’s uterus.

Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)

ICSI follows the same process as an IVF cycle but is when fertilisation involves a single sperm being injected into a single egg with the resulting embryo being placed back into the woman’s uterus.

Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET)

After an IVF or ICSI cycle, suitable embryos can be frozen for later use. A FET cycle is a procedure where hormones are given to prepare the uterine lining. The frozen embryo is thawed and placed in the woman’s uterus. You may be placed on medication for a FET cycle.
