DuoFertility better than IVF?

the device

A new study shows an excellent alternative to IVF for couples struggling with infertility. The DuoFertility
when used for six months gives the same chance of pregnancy as a single cycle of IVF. It is a non-invasive, drug-free alternative which works for many couples trying to conceive and could save thousands of dollars every year.

The system consists of a device attached to a patch worn under the arm. It measures body temperature every few seconds. There is also a handheld monitor which retrieves information from the device and can provide information regarding peak fertility period. Other variables can be input including menstrual cycle, intercourse occurrence, mucous quality, and other health statistics. The monitor can be hooked up to your computer and the data input into the DuoFertility program for more information regarding your cycle. The data can even be printed out to share with your doctor. There is expert support found at the website which supports and answers any questions.

The lead author of recently published research, Dr. Oriane Chausiaux, summarized the results, “Although we have been observing higher than anticipated pregnancy rates with this program for some time, and reporting this at academic conferences, this is the first study with sufficient statistical power to meet the stringent criteria of the peer review publication process. The results show that for couples suffering from unexplained infertility a well as a variety of other factors, six months using DuoFertility is as effective as a cycle of IVF and twelve months using DuoFertility yields a higher clinical pregnancy rate than a cycle of IVF.”

The release of the research coincides with the 200th pregnancy created with the help of the DuoFertility. They are looking forward to follow up research including live birth rates, but it does appear the for women with unexplained infertility, this could be a really viable and affordable alternative.
