What is IVF?
IVF is the process of combining an egg with sperm “in vitro” (in glass) in a laboratory setting. The fertilized egg is then transferred and implanted into the uterus. This whole process takes about 3 weeks.
The average cost of a single IVF cycle is over $15,000 and most couples must under at least 3 IVF cycles before a successful pregnancy. This means a person using IVF as an infertility treatment is looking at a minimum of $45,000 and a minimum of 3 months before a successful IVF transfer.
How Does Clear Passage Compare to IVF?
Clear Passage using a non-surgical, non-pharmaceutical therapy to treat women with infertility. This treatment has been studied and developed for over 30 years. Our therapists have successfully treated many caused of infertility ranging from endometriosis, blocked tubes, hydrosalpinx, PCOS, secondary infertility and even unexplained infertility. We have had many patients undergo multiple rounds of IVF treatment without success who go on to have a natural pregnancy without complication after receiving our treatment.
As stated above, the average couple is looking at $45,000 for IVF treatment over the course of 3 months. Clear Passage treatment costs $7,500 and uses one round of a 1-week treatment. Unlike IVF, the treatment you receive from Clear Passage has a positive long-lasting effect on a woman’s infertility. Many previous patients who undergo one round of treatment go on to have multiple pregnancies without needing more therapy, unlike IVF.
IVF focuses only on achieving a successful pregnancy. Here at Clear Passage our therapy has been shown to not only increase fertility at rates higher than IVF or surgery, but also treat chronic pain and other mechanical issues throughout the body.
Not only is IVF significantly more expensive, it also has significantly lower success rates. The average rate of life births for the first embryo transfer is 41.4% for a single pregnancy. Women who attended Clear Passage therapy had a live birth 57% of the time after treatment and often went on to have future pregnancies without requiring another round of therapy.
How Does Clear Passage Therapy Work?
The therapy, which can feel like a deep massage, has been shown to decrease the adhesions that are the primary cause of infertility. These internal scars can form after a surgery, injury, infection, or endometriosis. They can act like glue in the female reproductive tract, blocking fallopian tubes, binding or squeezing structures like internal straitjackets.
Our therapists use the Wurn Technique®, applying pressure and shearing to detach the crosslinks that adhesions are made of. Our primary therapy focus is treating adhesions affecting the soft tissues of the entire body:
- fascia, the connective tissue that supports and separates all of the body structures, and is the body’s main shock absorber
- muscles, which help us move
- organs, which help us function
- nerves, which alert us to problems, through pain
- ligaments, which connect bone to bone
- tendons, which connect muscles to bone
Over 1,000 babies have been born to women diagnosed infertile after treatment at Clear Passage clinics. In published studies, the therapy has been shown to open totally blocked fallopian tubes in most women, followed by one or more natural pregnancies for many of them.
What are the Risks of IVF and Clear Passage Therapy?
Like any invasive treatment, IVF comes with significant risks. The main risks include the following:
- Multiple births
- Premature delivery and low birth weight
- Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome
- Egg-retrieval procedure complications
- Ectopic pregnancy
- Birth defects
Fortunately due to the extensive training our therapists go through and the lack of surgery or drugs used in our therapy, there are few, if any, risks involved with Clear Passage treatment. The noted risks include:
- Slight discomfort
- Mild fatigue
- Soreness after treatment
