You can optimize your chances of pregnancy using genetic testing technology in conjunction with IVF. PGS/NGS is the testing of an embryo’s overall chromosomal normalcy prior to being transferred to the patient’s uterus. Specifically, PGS/NGS identifies the most suitable and healthiest embryo to transfer by detecting chromosomal deficiencies – aneuploidy – an extra or missing chromosome.
Universal blastocyst-stage PGS/NGS is recommended because the procedure can help increase the chances of a successful IVF pregnancy by 30 percent.
State-of-the-art embryo biopsy techniques and genetics technologies have proven to increase IVF pregnancy rates. Through the medical marvel of PGS/NGS in conjunction with IVF, genetic and chromosomal abnormalities can be detected in embryos.
As a woman advances in age, the chance for chromosomal abnormalities in embryos increases. Low quality embryos result in:
PGS/NGS takes place in conjunction with IVF in a controlled laboratory setting. Approximately five (5) days – blastocyst stage – after fertilization of the patient’s eggs in vitro, a single cell is removed from each of the embryos developing.
The benefits of PGS in conjunction with IVF include:
We offer the highest success rates and best overall patient satisfaction through PGS/NGS technology in conjunction with IVF. To schedule your initial consultation with Dr. John Zhang – call 917.525.5496.
Coping under the weight of IVF treatment can be difficult – regardless of your doctor’s recommended protocol. Don’t despair. IVF yoga is a holistic treatment to prepare one’s body for pregnancy and birth. The best part? As a pregnancy enhancement tool, yoga is proven to reduce stress, balance hormones, and revamp one’s whole wellness in body, mind, and spirit.
Even if you’ve already started an IVF cycle, you can receive support and nurturing from yoga. There are a myriad of benefits from yoga. It can’t be emphasized enough: Always begin with a moderate yoga regimen – not high intensity exercise – and always get pre-approval from your fertility doctor. Look: Too much high intensity yoga or other exercise has been shown to hinder successful pregnancy outcomes.
You will discover a love for restorative or Yin style yoga practices that will nourish your mind and body while alleviating the stress associated with IVF treatment.
Warning: Avoid practicing high intensity yoga, such as:
Yoga is easily adaptable to your lifestyle choices. If you have been practicing high intensity yoga methods – pump your brakes and adapt to a more moderate routine.
In the months leading up to the beginning of your IVF cycle, scale back high intensity yoga practice with a more gentle and less forceful routine.
Once you have started your IVF cycle, make sure you are practicing a very gentle pregnancy-appropriate yoga.
For self-control, include:
To honor the intensity of yoga, maintain a ritual afterward:
On the morning of your surgical egg retrieval, allow time for meditation or pranayama.
Practice meditation or pranayama on the morning of your embryo transfer. Then, refrain from any physical yoga in the days following.

Today’s older women – between 38 and 42 – have more fertility treatment options than ever before. Women who are past their reproductive prime used to be automatically placed on the fast-track to IVF. This was typically the most effective treatment option for older women to conceive quickly and cost-effectively. Look: Time is of the essence. Before undergoing IVF, older women can now consider Ovarian Rejuvenation Therapy. Bottom Line: As a first line measure, both Ovarian Rejuvenation Therapy and IVF can avoid repeated failed infertility treatment cycles.
A recent study has favored going straight to IVF treatment.
IVF success rates vary in the context of patient and treatment characteristics. Researchers have found that older women were more than twice as likely to become pregnant through IVF within the first two cycles of treatment. The best part? They were twice as likely to have a healthy baby from their IVF pregnancy.
A randomized clinical study by NIH analyzed 154 couples who had been trying to get pregnant for six months before seeking infertility treatment.
What happened to those patients who failed IUI and went on to IVF treatment?
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:
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.

One third (1/3) of infertility cases are attributed to male factor infertility. Men are less apt to openly discuss their infertility or to have a support system in place to help them cope through treatment. This is because men do not think about their fertility until it comes time to have a baby.
Proven, successful treatments to overcome male-factor infertility:
Have you been diligently trying to get pregnant with no luck? Look: All pregnancies begin when egg meets sperm – so they need to be in the same place at the same time. That’s not all. There is more to getting pregnant than simply keeping track of when your ovaries release your egg – ovulation window – and having sex during that time. There are many quick and easy lifestyle changes you can make to increase your chances of conceiving by improving the health of your eggs.
There are many factors that have an impact on the health of a woman’s ovaries and eggs. To enhance your natural fertility, consider some additional factors:
For the good health of your eggs, proper oxygenation to the ovaries is necessary. Lack of oxygen and blood flow to the ovaries can decrease because of:
Exercise increases blood flow to a woman’s reproductive organs and brings in fresh blood to cells. Bottom line: Exercise helps to oxygenate the blood. New studies have shown that both online yoga and in-person yoga help to increase the chances of a successful IVF pregnancy by up to 26 percent. This is because yoga is proven to reduce stress and anxiety in IVF patients.
Yoga regimens include a series of poses and postures designed to improve fertility by:
Six weeks of in-person or online fertility yoga can reduce an IVF patient’s stress and anxiety between 23 and 26 percent. Now, you can experience the benefits of yoga by practicing online at home.
Lack of hydration can cause a woman’s blood to become thick and decrease circulation in her reproductive organs. Drinking plenty of water upon rising from bed in the morning and throughout the day will naturally increase circulation in the body.
Begin by enhancing your diet with foods rich in folic acid.
Studies show that women over 30 who drank seven or more alcoholic beverages a week were twice as likely not to conceive. Cutting out alcohol altogether while you try for a baby is the best plan because, once you conceive, your cravings for a drink will be diminished.
A healthy adult Body Mass Index (BMI) is between 18.5 and 24.9. A 2016 review of studies shows that not getting enough sleep leads women to consume an average of 385 more calories the next day. Too much body weight can make women less fertile.
Caffeine – in coffee, tea, and soda – can have an adverse effect on female fertility. It’s best to cut caffeine out altogether to boost your fertility level and prepare for a healthy pregnancy.
Eating healthy proteins helps to maintain blood sugar balance. This balance gives your body the even supply of nutrients it needs for producing hormones and supporting a healthy reproductive system.
It is important to work with a fertility care team having the experience to accurately diagnose the underlying cause of your infertility and design a customized treatment plan meeting your specific medical and personal needs.
