Effortless IVF’s crowdfunding campaign for 100 “founder” patients who paid CDN$4,000 has apparently paid off.
The Calgary company has an approved device that saves patients money by letting embryos multiply inside the mother’s body instead of a petri dish.
The egg and sperm are given “five minutes to mingle outside the patient’s body before they’re put in a plastic box that goes into the patient’s vagina.”
The INVO Cell is FDA approved and live birth rates were similar in a randomized study. Costs for the treatment will be about 50% less than traditional IVF.
