FREE OVARIAN REJUVENATION SOCIAL: Thursday, January 30th at 4 Columbus Circle – the New Hope Piano Lounge – from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.

If you join us – you will be automatically entered in a lottery to win an Ozone Sauna Therapy session.

Women between the ages of 35 and 42 no longer have to be placed on the IVF fast-track. You have more fertility treatment options than ever before if you are a more mature woman. There is a new fertility treatment – Ovarian Rejuvenation Therapy – helping women conceive past their reproductive prime years.

Ovarian Rejuvenation Therapy

Today, older women can elect to receive Ovarian Rejuvenation Therapy as a first-line measure for them to conceive quickly and cost-effectively. All older women – even menopausal women – have egg follicles in their ovaries. These eggs are dormant and don’t grow because their environment for development is not optimal. This occurs when a woman’s rigid ovarian wall pushes on follicles and keeps them dormant. When a woman is unable to ovulated, Ovarian Rejuvenation Therapy can coax her ovaries into producing viable eggs for fertilization. At New Hope Fertility Center, fertility specialist – Dr. Zaher Merhi – has achieved phenomenal pregnancy success using Ovarian Rejuvenation Therapy.

Ovarian Rejuvenation Therapy may be recommended when:

  • A woman’s egg follicles cannot be seen on an ultrasound; or
  • A woman’s body is not responding to fertility medications administered during IVF

At New Hope Fertility Center, Ovarian Rejuvenation Therapy is performed in a non-invasive manner compared to other techniques currently being used by other clinics.

Here, Ovarian Rejuvenation Therapy is similar to an IVF egg retrieval procedure and is performed in office.

  • A woman’s ovaries are punctured multiple times transvaginally
  • Pressure on egg follicles is relieved from the rigid ovarian wall
  • Dormant eggs are revived and freed from follicles

Candidates for Ovarian Rejuvenation Therapy

  • Women in their advanced maternal years – late 30s and over 40
  • Menopausal women
  • Peri-menopausal women
  • Women who have a low egg reserve and low Anti Mullerian (AMH) hormone levels
  • Women suffering from Premature Ovarian Failure (POF)
  • Women suffering from primary ovarian failure
  • Women with unexplained infertility
  • Women having multiple failed IVF treatments due to poor embryo quality

Pregnancy Success for Older Women

We welcome difficult patients – those previously diagnosed by other fertility specialists as hopelessly infertile.

  • No age restriction
  • No FSH level requirement
  • No requirement to produce multiple eggs per cycle

Ovarian Rejuvenation Expertise

It is important to work with a fertility doctor having the research and clinical experience required to design a fertility treatment plan meeting your personal and medical needs. To reserve your invite at our January 30th Ovarian Rejuvenation Social at New Hope Fertility Center – call 212.969.7422.

IVF Pregnancy Success Patient Testimonial – Pregnant at 42

IVF Hope Finds A Way!

My IVF journey began when I was 39. I had five IVF failures (5) at three different fertility clinics in NYC before I came to New Hope Fertility Center. At my former clinics I was given high doses of drugs and produced many egg follicles. However, shortly after fertilization most of the embryos would arrest and the ones transferred to my uterus would not implant. I was diagnosed as hopelessly infertile.

At 41 – discouraged and feeling hopeless – I came across New Hope and was intrigued by their mission of treating difficult patients. I met with Dr. Zhang and immediately felt comfortable and hopeful again. Dr. Zhang reviewed my records of previous IVF attempts and designed a different protocol for me. Unlike other clinics, New Hope has a customized regimen for each patient. They do not use a cookie-cutter approach.

Dr. Zhang and my fertility care team found the IVF regimen that worked best for me. I was given less drugs and then my embryos were frozen. At age 42, I had a successful frozen embryo transfer during my natural cycle. My husband and I now have a beautiful baby boy.

How to Improve Your Fertility Health in the New Year 2020

group of people eating at table with foodIf you want to get pregnant this New Year, you must give your fertility health a fresh start. You must be proactive in taking better care of yourself. Look: Give more attention to your overall health if you are planning on undergoing fertility treatment in 2020. Why is your health important? A healthy diet will increase your chances of conceiving and help to support a successful pregnancy. Nutrition and optimal fertility go hand-in-hand

Bottom Line for Fertility Health: Break bad habits and eat better.

  • Stop smoking because women who inhale nicotine are more likely to be infertile.
  • Recent research suggest vaping harms the lungs and heart. The artificial flavors have a toxic effect on cells.
  • Eliminate unhealthy foods in your diet by avoiding processed and fast foods.
  • If you are overweight – BMI of 25+ – losing weight will help to increase your fertility.
  • Get plenty of sleep to avoid irregular menstrual cycles. A lack of sleep leads to weight gain. Weight gain leads to ovulation problems. You should get at least 8 hours of sleep to increase your fertility.

Improving Your Fertility Health

A diet and fertility study has examined the impact of diet on fertility. Positive dietary effects on fertility for women have been linked to the intake of:

  • Folic acid
  • Vitamin B12
  • Omega 3 fatty acids
  • Healthy diets – the DASH

Fertility Diet Tips

  • Low-sodium canned or frozen veggies
  • Herbs and spices instead of salt
  • Lemon juice, citrus zest, or hot chilies for extra flavor and no sodium
  • Canned fruits packed in juice or water – not syrup
  • Non-fat, plain Greek yogurt instead of sour cream
  • Healthy vegetable oils instead of butter
  • Half wheat and half white flour
  • Puree sweet potatoes, carrots, or cauliflower and keep in freezer for easy use in soups and casseroles
  • Instead of alcohol – infuse cranberries, pomegranate arils, or orange slices into sparkling water
  • Plant-based foods
  • Protein-rich foods
  • Healthy fats
  • A bit of full-fat dairy products

Nutrition and Fertility

Nutrition plays an essential role in improving the chances of conception and supporting a healthy pregnancy. Diet matters greatly before pregnancy and solidifies healthy eating habits during pregnancy. Make sure you take your vitamin supplements containing folic acid.

A Healthy Body Mass Index (BMI)

A healthy body weight and diet is essential to increasing your chances of becoming pregnant. Strive to achieve and maintain a healthy body mass index (BMI) to keep your reproductive cycle in balance. A BMI of 19 to 24 indicates a healthy weight. Anything above 24 or below 19 may be hindering your chances of ovulation and conception.

Plan of Action to Get Pregnant

Make an appointment with a fertility specialist for a thorough reproductive examination and preliminary assessment of your reproductive health. Why does this matter? Up to 34 percent of infertility cases are due to structural issues with a woman’s reproductive system. Both female and male patients must undergo a complete fertility assessment to evaluate their reproductive health.

The good news! Flagging any potential medical cause of infertility is the quick and cost-effectively help you get pregnant over the summer. Once the problem is identified, great strides toward a pregnancy can be made through a customized treatment plan.

Genetic Testing

Today’s Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) helps to increase the healthy birth rates of babies through genetic testing. This is because only the healthiest embryos are identified and transferred for implantation during a fresh IVF cycle or a future Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET). Genetic testing helps to reduce the number of cycles required to achieve a healthy pregnancy.

PGT-A Increases IVF Pregnancy Chance by up to 30%

Recent research statistics show that a PGT-A biopsy and screening dramatically increases a woman’s chance of conception through IVF – by up to 30 percent. Cells are extracted from a blastocyst embryo and evaluated. Aneuploidy embryos are detected.

Poor quality embryos result in:

  • Low chance of pregnancy
  • High chance of miscarriage
  • High risk for birth defect

Candidates for PGT-A in Conjunction with IVF

  • Women over 35 using their own eggs
  • Women having a history of 2 or more miscarriages
  • Women having failed multiple IVF cycles
  • Patients having a family history of genetic disease
  • Couples who have a child born with genetic disease
  • Women who want Family Balancing – Gender Identification & Selection

Cutting-Edge IVF Protocols

PGT-A is conducted in conjunction with Cutting-Edge IVF Protocols.

Fertility Counseling in the New Year 2020

It is important to work with a renowned fertility counselor when you undergo IVF treatment. To schedule your initial consultation with Dr. Allison Rosen at New Hope Fertility Center call 212.969.7422.

How PGT-M Prevents Common Genetic Diseases

16216510942_76be383bbe_zPreimplantation Genetic Test-Monogenic (PGT-M) is a new and innovative technology used in conjunction with IVF. PGT-M prevents a parent who is a known carrier of a single gene disorder from passing that disease on to a baby conceived via IVF.

PGT-M Embryo Screening

PGT-M screens embryos for the presence of common genetic diseases in conjunction with IVF.

  • Hemophilia
  • Cystic Fibrosis
  • Sickle Cell Anemia
  • Tay Saches Disease
  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy
  • Duchennes Muscular Dystophy
  • Thalassemia

After a woman’s eggs have been surgically retrieved and fertilized in vitro, developing embryos will be tested upon reaching the blastocyst stage (5 to 6 days after fertilization occurs). A few cells are gently removed from each embryo using microsurgery technology. Our expert embryologists then analyze the cells using a probe that is specifically designed to test for a specific gene disorder. PGT-M diagnoses the presence of a genetic defect in an embryo.

Only Healthy Embryos Are Transferred

Embryos testing positive for a genetic disease are not transferred to the woman’s uterus. Only healthy embryos are used for a fresh transfer or cryopreserved for future Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET) procedures.

PGT-M is conducted in conjunction with Cutting-Edge IVF Protocols.

Candidates for PGT-M

  • Women over 35 undergoing IVF using their own eggs
  • Couples having a history of multiple failed IVF attempts
  • Patients having a family history of genetic disease
  • Couples where one or both partners are known carriers of genetic disease
  • Couple who have a child born with a genetic disease
  • Couples who have a history of recurrent miscarriage

PGT-M Technology Expertise

Dr. John Zhang’s PGT-M technology expertise in conjunction with IVF offers the highest pregnancy success rates and best overall patient satisfaction. To schedule your initial consultation with Dr. John Zhang call 212.969.7422.
