IVF treatment can take a toll on your finances, your emotions — and your marriage. Mini-IVF Mexico promises more chances of successful fertilization and less risk and side effects.
Like Natural Cycle IVF, Mini-IVF Mexico is a holistic approach to fertility care in Mexico and offers a gentle alternative to IVF. It differs from Natural Cycle IVF in its use of a minimal amount of oral medication to stimulate the ovaries so they produce the maximum number of “quality” eggs in a single cycle.
Mini cycles of in vitro fertilization control the female hormones to encourage fewer eggs of a higher quality. This translates into minimal ovarian stimulation, aiming for 3-8 eggs of the very best quality your body can produce (which are the ones to give you best chance of a baby).
IVF Clinics in Mexico offer Mini-IVF Mexico at a lower cost than IVF in the America or Canada. You can have IVF done for under $3,000 under the guided care of IVF experts.
A Good Candidate for Mini-IVF
Mini-IVF Mexico is vastly sought out by patients who cannot afford IVF. Good candidates for Mini IVF in Mexico are women with higher natural FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) levels and women in their late thirties or forties. Older women have higher FSH levels, which make them highly fit candidates.
Woman who simply do not want to increase fertility drugs options are good candidates for Mini-IVF in Mexico.
Mini IVF is also good for options for many reasons including:
- Low or Diminished Ovarian Reserve (DOR): Women with DOR may not respond well to the stimulating medications anyway, so taking fewer medications doesn’t mean fewer eggs.
- Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome (OHSS): Those at risk for OHSS like those with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) may be a good candidate to reduce the risk of hyperstimulated ovaries.
- Costs: You will save money on medications. However, by taking fewer medications there is a chance fewer embryos are made meaning you may have to do another more costly IVF cycle rather than using your remaining frozen embryos for an affordable FET.
Mini-IVF in Mexico is achieved with oral medications, instead of long regimens of daily injections. Continuous use helps reduce the chance of producing premature eggs and allows development of high quality eggs. The patient will be given hormone medications to help mature the eggs. The patient’s ovaries will then be monitored through ultrasound. The eggs will then be recovered for fertilization. The process of mini IVF takes at best 2 weeks.
Risks and Side Effects of Mini-IVF
While Mini-IVF in Mexico offers expressively lower risks and fewer side effects when compared to conventional IVF, any prescribed medications may have side effects and can pose a risk to your health. Risks may include Ovarian Hyper Stimulation Syndrome (OHSS) and multiple births.
While Clomid is commonly well tolerated, patients may experience mild side effects such as hot flashes, headaches, bloating and breast tenderness.
Advantages -The result of Mini-IVF in Mexico is a shorter treatment cycle, with less discomfort, less risk of side effects and very effective results.

Will Mini IVF help me get pregnant?
Minimal stimulation IVF may be more likely to result in pregnancy than natural cycle IVF, which uses no fertility medications at all. Mini-IVF success rates to be closer to 10 percent per cycle. This is far lower than standard IVF pregnancy rates, which range from 30 to 47 percent nationally.
