Multi Cycle IVF Programs

Shared IVF Success Program
  • The patient is given medications to stimulate egg production and undergoes a fresh IVF cycle
  • All eggs produced during the cycle are inseminated to create embryos for the recipient
  • Embryos are selected for transfer to the patient
  • Any remaining good quality embryos may be frozen
  • If pregnancy is achieved, the frozen embryos are stored until the baby comes home from the hospital
  • If pregnancy is not achieved, the recipient can undergo frozen embryo transfers and subsequent fresh and frozen IVF cycles up to a total of 6 full cycles or until a baby is brought home
  • If all cycles available under the program are exhausted and a baby is not taken home, a full refund of the program fee will be issued
