Towards a more physiological approach to IVF.

Author information

Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology, St George's Hospital Medical School, Cranmer Terrace, London, SW17 0RE, UK.


The International Society for Mild Approaches in Assisted Reproduction (ISMAAR) is founded to promote a more physiological, less drug-oriented, lower risk, less expensive and more patient friendly approach to Assisted Reproduction embracing not only natural cycle treatment but also gentle stimulation protocols and in-vitro maturation of oocytes. Recent research suggests that IVF in modified natural cycle/mild stimulation with antagonist is likely to replace the current conventional approach in down-regulated cycles. The Society will focus both on the basic science and clinical aspects of assisted reproduction. It will be committed to promoting international multi-centre scientific research, regular practical workshops for training and also seminars for educating assisted reproduction technology professionals. ISMAAR aims to establish a direct dialogue with the voluntary sector and politicians to campaign for IVF to be a safer, softer and affordable treatment globally.
