Step-It-Up IVF™

Step-It-Up IVF™ uses half the medication of a traditional IVF cycle, which reduces both the cost of treatment and the physical toll on a patient’s body. The program offers better pregnancy rates at a similar cost to multiple attempts of low-tech treatments such as ovulation induction (OI) and intrauterine insemination (IUI).


Why Step-It-Up IVF™ Might Be Right For You

  • Step-It-Up IVF™ has a four to five times higher pregnancy rate compared to a single cycle of OI/IUI
  • Medication doses are cut in half compared to a traditional IVF cycle, reducing the cost for and physical impact on patient
  • RAD’s commitment to single embryo transfers lowers the possibility of multiple births to less than 2%
  • Frozen embryos can offer opportunities for future pregnancies

***A comparison of clinic success rates may not be meaningful because patient medical characteristics, treatment approaches, and entrance criteria for ART may vary from clinic to clinic.

How To Maximize Success With Step-It-Up IVF™

One in three patients benefits from IVF Peace of Mind™ 2nd Cycle Option while participating in the Step-It-Up IVF™ program. Patients can pay a significantly reduced price for a second cycle ahead of time for a greater chance at success.

Patients can also choose pre-implantation genetic screening (PGS) to further increase their chance at success.


Step-It-Up IVF™ Recognized at National Conferences

Step-It-Up IVF Success Rates Highlighted at the 2016 ASRM Scientific Congress & Expo October 17, 2016

Sue Carr presented study results at the 2016 American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) Scientific Congress and Expo in Salt Lake City. The abstract, co-authored with Dr. Feinberg, Dr. Kovalevsky, Eileen Ramos, and the RAD embryologists, analyzed cumulative live birth/ongoing pregnancy rates and potential cost savings associated with Step-It-Up IVF and single embryo transfer (SET) in good prognosis patients.

Step-It-Up IVF Success Rates Displayed at World IVF Congress Annual Meeting September 30, 2015

Sue Carr was selected to attend the 18th World IVF Congress of In Vitro Fertilization in Denmark to display a poster on Step-It-Up IVF™ success rates. The poster, co-authored with Dr. Feinberg, Dr. Kovalevsky, and the RAD embryologists, highlights how pregnancy rates for Step-It-Up IVF™ are equal to traditional IVF, but with fewer frozen embryos.
