What is INVOcell?
What if you did not need to use an IVF laboratory to get IVF done?
With INVOcell the eggs are retrieved as in typical IVF and then placed in the chamber you see above. The sperm are added and then the device is placed in the women’s vagina instead of an incubator. It is the correct temperature, right? Three or five days later the device is removed and embryos are taken out of the chamber. The embryos are then placed in the uterus as they would in regular IVF.
What are the advantages?
- You save on the expenses of the Lab.
- You save on Medications because we only need a few eggs, 4-8.
- Fertilization takes place inside the human body which is very important to certain religious groups.
This device is the product of many years of hard work and research. I would particularly like to mention Claude Rannoux with whom I personally worked with on this project years ago. I was part of the team that, led by Claude performed the original FDA study on patient safety. It is safe. None of the patients reported any significant discomfort or vaginal infections.
Does it work? Yes. Some of the studies report similar success rates as traditional IVF.
I am sure you have many questions so feel free to send them to me.
I look forward to seeing you at FP!
