|In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) Research Study|
|Georgia Reproductive Specialists is currently seeking patients for The IVY IVF Study. This study is testing a new follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) treatment called AFOLIA comparing it to the US approved Gonal-f. FSH helps healthy ovaries to make eggs in women. Each patient in this study would be participating for approximately 14 weeks per cycle, similar to the amount of time spent in a regular IVF cycle. This study requires frequent visits to the doctor’s office involving procedures such as having blood drawn, pelvic ultrasounds, self-injected medications and egg retrieval to remove eggs for embryo transfer. Each patient will receive the same medical care and oversight throughout the study. Each patient may be eligible to complete up to 3 IVF cycles. The study drug is free of charge for all participants and the IVF procedure is offered at a lower cost than other options.|
You may be eligible to participate in this study if you:
- If you are between 35 and 42 years of age with presence of both ovaries
-Trying to conceive
- Are clinically in good health
- Have regular menstrual cycles
- Have been told you need IVF to conceive
If you are interested in learning more about the IVY study and whether you may be eligible to participate, please visit www.TheIVYStudy.com or call 844-733-9098.
