In Vitro Maturation (IVM) is a treatment for infertility that does not incorporate ovarian stimulation as regular In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) does (less hormone injections required). Nevertheless, most indications for treatment and laboratory practices are common. IVM is an additional procedure that is added prior to IVF. With IVM, the eggs are collected at an early stage and then matured in the lab. The remaining procedures are the same as conventional IVF.

IVM is becoming a popular treatment for infertile parents and has proven to be safer and more effective than conventional fertility treatments. It reduces side effects and it is more suitable for parents with specific medical conditions.

IVM technology provides great help in meeting treatment needs, as no medications or hormones are given to stimulate ovulation before egg collection. For many years now, IVM has consistently achieved high levels of success in treatment.
