In Vitro Maturation

IVM is a fertility treatment without hormone stimulation in which immature eggs are collected, cultured and fertilized.

Everything you should know about IVM

IVM (in vitro maturation) is a fertility treatment in which immature eggs are retrieved from the ovaries, cultured and then fertilized outside the body. Unlike other fertility treatments, IVM does not require hormone stimulation, which can reduce the risk of side effects.

The procedure begins with an ultrasound examination to determine if there is a sufficient number of eggs. If so, the ovaries are stimulated to induce ovulation. Immature eggs are then removed from the ovaries and cultured in a laboratory until they are mature enough for fertilization.

IVM technology is still being further developed and researched, particularly with regard to its potential efficacy in women with PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome), in whom hormone stimulation can potentially lead to complications.

Overall, IVM can be a promising option for women with fertility problems who do not want to opt for hormone stimulation or for whom such treatment is not recommended due to medical reasons. However, as with any fertility treatment, a thorough consultation with an experienced reproductive medicine specialist is essential.


Cryopreservation allows the storage of eggs, sperm or embryos for later use.

Embryo transfer

Embryo transfer is the process of transferring a fertilized egg into a woman's uterus to enable pregnancy.
