The (IVF) In Vitro Fertilisation Process is where eggs are collected from the ovary, fertilised with sperm in the laboratory and replaced back into the uterus, hopefully generating a successful pregnancy.
At Monash IVF in Victoria the majority of our patients under a short-cycle IVF treatment known as an Antagonist Cycle. On average the Antagonist Cycle time frame from a patient telephoning with their period to pregnancy test is approximately 4 weeks. This treatment is better for women because it is less stressful, it has fewer side effects and is much quicker, so couples see results earlier.
