The 'mini-IVF' has had twice the success rates as the conventional method. A half-price version of IVF that women could have in their lunch-hour has been shown to raise the chances of having a baby drastically. It is particularly effective for those in their late 30s and early 40s and success rates are almost twice as high as the conventional fertility treatment. The technique involves using far lower doses of drugs, with the result that it is not only far cheaper, but also has virtually no side effects. Many women undergoing normal IVF suffer from mood swings, nausea and headaches.
