Comparing Intra-vaginal Culture of Embryos to In-vitro Culture of Embryos With Minimal Stimulation
The purpose of this study is to evaluate implantation rate with intra-vaginal culture with the INVOcell device versus traditional IVF while using minimal stimulation protocols
Randomized Controlled Trial Comparing Intra-vaginal Culture of Embryos Using INVOcell Device to In-vitro Culture of Embryos Using Minimal Stimulation Protocols
This is a Phase IV, single center randomized controlled trial evaluating intra-vaginal culture using INVOcell versus traditional IVF using oral stimulation or minimal gonadotropin stimulation protocols. The pilot aims to includes 40 women who will be randomized to either the intra-vaginal culture group (N=20) using INVOcell or to the traditional IVF group (N=20).
Primary aim is implantation rate, which is defined by number gestational sacs seen on early pregnancy ultrasound divided by number of embryos transferred.
Secondary aims are:
Embryo quality, which is measured by the Gardner grading system.
Fertilization rate, which is defined by the total number of fertilized oocytes divided by total number of mature oocytes retrieved. This comparison will take place on day-3, as that is when the IVC embryos will be assessed.
Clinical pregnancy rate, which is defined by the number of fetal poles with heartbeat seen on ultrasound divided by the number of embryos transferred.
Live birth rate, which is defined by the number of living babies delivered divided by the number of transfers
