How Long Does IVF Take?

One of the commonly asked questions is about how long an IVF cycle takes.

A cycle of IVF treatment can take as little as six to eight weeks and only requires a few brief visits to the Clinic.

Over the years, we have streamlined and simplified the process of In Vitro Fertilization to minimize interference with your lifestyle. Most patients will be able to continue their everyday lifestyles during their treatment.

IVF treatment cycle starts with an onset of a menstrual period. It consists of ovarian stimulation, egg retrieval, the creation of embryos, and embryo transfer.

Below is an example of IVF treatment protocols used at Bay IVF. Your individualized protocol may take less or more time to complete.


Ovarian Stimulation Example #1


Other IVF protocols used at Bay IVF, each with its own variation in the type and amount of medications, take approximately the same amount of time.
