In Vitro Maturation (IVM)

In vitro maturation (IVM) was developed to provide a safer and less expensive alternative to conventional IVF. 

What is IVM?

IVM is the process in which immature eggs are collected from unstimulated ovaries and matured in a laboratory using hormones.  “In vitro” matured eggs are then fertilized using Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) and transferred into the patient’s womb.

Who should consider IVM?

  • Women less than 35 years old
  • Women with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)
  • Women with a history of hyperstimulation on fertility medications
  • Women with a history of poor oocyte (egg) quality
  • Women planning to have chemotherapy.

CCRM is now offering IVM as a clinical treatment.  Please contact (303) 788-8300 to schedule an appointment.
