Good news for the damaged butt cheeks of millions of women out there, and the stressed out non-medically trained shot givers worried an air bubble could risk a loved one’s live upon injection: there is needle-free IVF!
Instead of the dreaded plethora of shots, you take oral contraceptives followed by a combination of nasal sprays, including one to bring on ovulation. New Hope Fertility Center in New York.
This also means no more blood draws!
I remember how often Lisa’s veins use to blow out after multiple blood draws. This new IVF technology is truly needle free, using blood and saliva tests to check hormones instead of blood.
Apparently the process works for both fresh and frozen IVFs, and it means you’ll have a stick-free experience. This will hopefully at least take some of the discomfort out of the daunting physical rigors of IVF.
Needle-free IVF is good for….
Anyone who fears or hates shots
Anyone who fears giving shots to a loved one
Patients with PCOS
Women who have a higher risk of Ovarian Hyper-Stimulation Syndrome
Here’s the way it works
The graphic below is straight from New Hope Fertility Clinic’s site and it shows how the process works.
It warms my heart to think about how many couples WON’T have to deal with the stress and pain of injection after injection and blood draw after blood draw.
I’d love to hear from anyone who has gone through a needle-free IVF. If you have, be sure and tell me your story in the comments section.
