How to Get Pregnant With Cutting-Edge Mini-IVF™

A cutting-edge Mini-IVF™ protocol will help you to produce 3 to 5 high quality eggs in one treatment cycle. Your your chance of a successful pregnancy is dramatically increased. Look: You will spend less on fertility medications because you will be prescribed lower dosages. The best part: Your body won’t be overtaxed by having to produce the 10 to 15 eggs typically reached in a Pregnant Woman Fall (4)Conventional IVF Cycle – which may or may not be of good quality.

Mini-IVF™ Protocol

  • A fertility medication regimen prescribed for you to produce 3 to 5 quality eggs
  • Cycle monitoring through ultrasound imaging and blood tests
  • Surgical egg retrieval

How Key Nutrient-Rich Foods Boost Sperm Health

30177403 - digital illustration of sperm and ovule in colour backgroundThere are many nutrients in foods that promote optimum sperm health. Healthy sperm is essential for male fertility. If you’re trying to conceive, you can improve the quality of your sperm by eating only nutrient-rich foods. This is because nutrition and male fertility go hand-in-hand.

Key Nutrients for Sperm Quality & Quantity

Zinc

Zinc plays a key in regulating sperm count and quality. Men who are infertile tend to have zinc levels than men who are fertile.

You can up your zinc intake by eating:

  • oysters
  • red meat and poultry
  • shellfish, such as crab and lobster
  • fortified breakfast cereals
  • nuts and beans
  • whole wheat grain products
  • dairy

Folate

Folate is a B vitamin that is linked to sperm health. Low folate is associated with damaged sperm DNA, lower sperm densities, and lower sperm counts.

You can up your folate intake by eating:

  • green, leafy vegetables, such as spinach, romaine lettuce, Brussels sprouts, and asparagus
  • fruits and fruit juices, especially oranges and orange juice
  • nuts, beans, and peas
  • whole grains
  • fortified breakfast cereals
  • enriched flour products, such as breads and pasta

Vitamin B-12

Vitamin B-12 is a critical nutrient to overall sperm health. B-12 improves sperm motility, increases sperm count, and reduces sperm DNA damage.

You can up your B-12 by eating:

  • fish and seafood, especially clams
  • meats and poultry, especially liver
  • dairy products, such as eggs and milk
  • fortified breakfast cereals
  • nutritional yeasts

Male-Factor Infertility

Identifying and choosing high quality sperm to fertilize an egg is crucial in male-factor infertility cases. Negative influences of male-factor infertility must be negated to ensure successful embryo development. Using HRSS – High Resolution Sperm Selection, embryologists are able to better visualize sperm for Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) administration.

ICSI is the process of injecting a quality sperm directly into an egg for fertilization. HRSS is helping embryologists see, identify, and choose only high quality sperm cells for fertilization of an egg in vitro.

HRSS Technology

At 6000 x magnification – using Differential Interference Contrast (DIC) microscopy – it is possible for embryologists to see finer morphological details of sperm. Using conventional 500 x magnification, these details would go unnoticed.

By viewing sperm cells at 6000 x magnification, lab technicians can identify quality sperm cells that are optimum for fertilization of a healthy egg.

Once optimum sperm cells have been identified, a two-pronged process takes place.

  • Selection
  • Injection

Once the quality sperm cells are selected and separated using HRSS, they are injected into the egg for fertilization. Each egg receives a single sperm injection.

  • Reduces chances of a negative impact a sperm can have on a perfectly healthy egg
  • Removes any negative influence that male-factor infertility may have on successful embryo development
  • Increase the chances of a viable pregnancy

HRSS Identifies Optimum Sperm

A sperm cell’s normal appearance makes it more likely to be comprised of normal chromosomes and DNA structure. Optimum sperm morphology correlates directly with successful egg fertilization and embryo implantation. Morphology is the most important criteria when judging the quality of a sperm cell.

  • Sperm motility – ability of the cell to swim
  • Sperm morphology – overall assessment of the cell’s shape, size, and physical appearance

Why Young Women Should Attend Egg Freezing Social Events

Preganant Asian WomenWe offer free social egg freezing informational events to women wanting to postpone motherhood past their prime reproductive years. Improvements in egg freezing technologies mean a greater chance of egg-thawing survival today. Women should not be faced with childlessness because they cannot find the right partner – nor should they feel pressured into a relationship because of an aging ovarian reserve. – The Guardian

Egg Freezing Social Acceptance

According to a science article published last year in The Guardian, women need more information and realistic data about freezing their eggs to preserve their future ability to have biologically-related children. Why is this important? In 2019, women need to know how Social Egg Freezing (SEF) deflects the eventual medical reality of their biological clock running out of time.

Science Data on the 2019 Egg Freezing Trend

Success rates for egg freezing have improved significantly in recent years. Women should be informed of their opportunity to freeze their eggs for social reason if they chose not to get pregnant within their prime reproductive years. These women should be aware that egg freezing does not guaranty a baby in the future.The Guardian

The latest data from the Human Fertilisation and Embryo Authority (HFEA) shows the following trends in egg freezing:

  • 32 percent of women freezing their eggs were under the age of 35
  • 62 percent of women freezing their eggs were under 38
  • 27 percent of women thawing their eggs for fertilization and implantation were over the age of 44

Informative Egg Freezing in Events in 2019

Today, the medical marvel of egg freezing – oocyte cryopreservation – in conjunction with IVF preserves a woman’s fertility.

New Hope’s 2019 monthly egg freezing events cover:

  • What is egg freezing?
  • How is egg freezing done?
  • How to choose the best IVF center to freeze your eggs.
  • How many eggs do you need to freeze?
  • What is the cost of egg freezing?
  • What should you know before deciding to freeze your eggs?

When you sign up for an egg freezing consultation at one of our monthly events, you will receive:

  • A free consultation worth $500 plus an ultrasound
  • 6 months of free oocyte (egg) cryopreservation valued at $600 or more
  • A medication discount from Ferring Pharmaceuticals for women who qualify

Freezing Quality Eggs (Oocytes)

Look: 80 percent of the eggs cryopreserved today are for women who are choosing to delay childbearing past their prime reproductive years. Bottom Line: The natural aging process has a dramatic effect on the quality of a woman’s eggs. A woman in her prime reproductive years (early 20s and early 30s) has the option of freezing her eggs to preserve her future fertility into her advanced reproductive years (mid-30s and early 40s + beyond):

  • Today’s modern women who are focused on their education and career opportunities
  • Women whose circumstances in life are not presently conducive to rearing children
  • Women who have not be able to find their life partner
  • Women who are facing cancer treatment – chemo or radiation – that could damage the quality of their eggs and/or destroy their ovarian function by sending them into premature menopause
  • Women who are undergoing IVF and are likely to produce excessive eggs, but have ethical or religious concerns over freezing embryos

Affordable Egg Freezing in NYC

Your eggs don’t have to age – even if you do!

Egg Freezing is affordable at New Hope Fertility Center.

  • Free Egg Freezing Consultation

Egg Freezing Process

Egg freezing is accomplished through a fresh IVF cycle, stopping short of egg fertilization in vitro.

  • Stimulation of a woman’s ovaries using fertility drugs to produce several egg follicles during one fresh IVF cycle
  • Harvesting eggs from the woman’s ovaries through surgical retrieval
  • Preparation and freezing of the eggs for preservation through a process known as vitrification
  • The rapid-freezing technique of vitrification makes it possible to freeze eggs quickly so that ice crystals do not form between cells

Future Pregnancy

When she is ready to start building her family, the egg freezing process continues.

  • Her eggs are thawed and fertilized in vitro by injecting a single sperm cell into a single egg – Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)
  • The resulting embryos are cultured in vitro for up to 5 days (blastocyst stage)
  • A predetermined number of quality embryos are transferred into the woman’s uterus for implantation into the uterine lining to achieve pregnancy
