A Simpler Way to Life
A woman’s body was designed to nurture life and to carry it until the time of birth. The INVOcell uses the woman’s body as the natural incubator and laboratory, and the INVOcell has become the first FDA cleared Intravaginal Culture (IVC) device. It is a small polystyrene capsule which is used for egg fertilization and embryo development through vaginal incubation.
Although the advantages of INVOcell are numerous, the primary advantage of INVOcell is utilizing the women’s vagina as the main source of incubation. Those who participate in the treatment often feel more directly involved in the birth of their child
Also of note in the INVO Procedure is a simpler technique than previous Vitro Fertilization where the patient undergoes mild ovarian stimulation. Once the eggs are retrieved and the sperm are collected and prepared, they are immediately placed inside the INVOcell device with culture media. The INVOcell device is then inserted into the woman’s vaginal cavity where the eggs will be incubated using the patient’s body. After several days, the INVOcell device will be removed, the embryos observed, selected, and immediately transferred back to her body for further development, implantation, and observation.
