Preimplantation 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 screens embryos for the presence of common genetic diseases in conjunction with IVF.
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.
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.

Preimplantation Genetic Testing for Aneuploidies (PGT-A) will screen the chromosomal normality of each and every embryo culturing in vitro during your upcoming IVF treatment. PGT-A identifies high quality embryos by ruling out those with aneuploidy – an extra or missing chromosome.
Recent research statistics show that a PGT-A biopsy and screening dramatically increases a woman’s chance of conceiving a healthy baby through IVF – by up to 30 percent. Cells are extracted from a blastocyst embryo and evaluated by our expert embryologists. When aneuploidy embryos are detected, they are not transferred. Only high quality embryos are selected for fresh transfer or Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET) procedures.
Poor quality embryos result in:

Ozone Sauna Therapy helps a woman’s body take-in and utilize oxygen. Ozone Sauna Therapy is a helpful aid for women undergoing fertility treatment. It is especially beneficial for women over 35 undergoing Ovarian Rejuvenation Therapy. For more information about Ozone Sauna – email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ozone is quite similar to oxygen – it is comprised of three atoms. It’s a whole body treatment offering strong physiological and antibacterial benefits that increase the chance of conception.
Did you know? In the early 20th century, ozone was used as an antiseptic to sterilize medical instruments.
For women past their prime reproductive years who are trying to get pregnant, ozone potentially offers a wide range of fertility-boosting benefits. At New Hope Fertility Center, we offer Ozone Sauna Therapy as part of a comprehensive and customized fertility treatment plan. Whether a woman has been struggling for years to conceive – or – is working on getting pregnant after 40, ozone is a powerful tool that we offer to promote the health of her reproductive system. This therapy is also beneficial for to improve a man’s quality and quantity of sperm.
Pregnancy success is reliant on many patient-focused variables.
Best IVF Protocols
We don’t refuse those patients diagnosed as a challenging case. At New Hope Fertility Center, we welcome patients rejected by other fertility specialists because they are deemed to be hopelessly infertile.
Customized IVF care is the best. Remember: It only takes one good egg and one healthy sperm to make a baby. Our focus is to help you produce good quality eggs during a fresh IVF cycle – not a high quantity of eggs using large doses of injectable fertility medications.
Dr. John Zhang recommends Ozone Sauna Therapy to increase your chance of pregnancy. The Doctor especially recommends Ozone Sauna Therapy for his older patients who are trying to get pregnant through IVF or Ovarian Rejuvenation Treatment.

A fertility clinic in New York City has developed a form of in vitro fertilization that uses pills and a nasal spray, as well as urine and saliva tests instead of pricey injections and blood draws. Here’s what you need to know about needle-free IVF, or NF-IVF.
If you’re exploring IVF, you’ve learned about the bevy of side effects and steep cost of the conventional method. But what you might not have heard about just yet is a less invasive alternative called Needle-Free IVF, which is being touted as a groundbreaking technology offered exclusively by New Hope Fertility in New York City. Here’s what you need to know about the specifics and the cost of needle-free IVF.
The method was developed by John Zhang, MD, MSc, PhD, the founder/CEO of New Hope, in 2016. The unique method involves oral pills, vaginal suppositories, and nasal spray, but no injections, notes Zaher Merhi, MD, FACOG, the director of IVF research and development in IVF technologies at New York’s New Hope Fertility Center.
“Conventional IVF protocols have been used for over 35 years,” Dr. Merhi says. “It is about time to update IVF protocols to minimize risks and inconvenience related to conventional IVF. Conventional IVF involves daily injections and almost daily blood draws, which are too intense and heavy on patients’ body and mind. Injections are painful and expensive.”
To sidestep these uncomfortable aspects of traditional IVF, New Hope’s needle-free method involves oral and nasal fertility medications to more gently stimulate the ovaries into producing egg follicles. Because this process isn’t as rough on the body, patients are able to steer clear of conventional IVF side effects like weight gain—and get even higher-quality results, according to Dr. Merhi.
“If you think about pills and injections as food for the eggs, the less eggs there are, the less food they need,” Dr. Merhi explains. “Injections are strong food, so if you overfeed low number of eggs with injections, you will hurt their quality. A lot of studies have shown that less eggs retrieved due to minimal ovarian stimulation is correlated with better quality eggs.” This is especially true for women who are considered advanced maternal age (35+) and/or who have low ovarian reserve.
Like many conventional IVF patients, needle-free IVF patients start with a course of oral contraceptive tablets to prepare and stimulate the ovaries. But unlike conventional IVF, doctors will monitor the levels and baselines of pregnancy hormones (FSH, LH, estradiol, and progesterone) through urine and saliva, as opposed to daily blood draws. These tests “. . . are accurate for the hormone profiles that are needed for cycle monitoring, as long as the patient follows the instructions of the collection method,” Dr. Merhi says.
The patient then takes a “proprietary combination of nasal sprays” followed by a final spray for ovulation induction. Once a patient is cleared for retrieval, egg retrieval is done just as it would be with conventional IVF.
“Generally in the U.S., conventional IVF costs between $10,000-15,000,” Dr. Merhi says. By comparison, needle-free IVF will run between $5,000 and $7,000. The reason: “Conventional IVF involves taking injections which are very expensive,” according to Dr. Merhi.
Your chances of conception with needle-free IVF are “identical” to conventional IVF’s success rates, Dr. Merhi notes. That means that it varies from 40 to 65 percent in women under 35 and declines as women get older, down to less than 5 percent in women over 42.
Although needle-free IVF is suitable for any patient, it’s particularly useful for patients who:
The only factor that would disqualify a patient from being a candidate for needle-free IVF is an allergy to the oral medications or vaginal suppositories. “Otherwise, everyone qualifies,” Dr. Merhi says. “So far, the majority of patients who have gone through NF-IVF love it.”
It is important to work with a Needle-Free IVF expert having the cutting-edge technology and clinical experience required to design a customized treatment plan meeting your financial and medical needs.

IVF pregnancy success rates using a Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET) are higher than a fresh embryo transfer. Look: The patient’s body has the opportunity to wait until her uterine lining returns to an ideal state for embryo implantation. Freezing quality embryos after a fresh IVF cycle will increase a couple’s chance of conceiving in the future. This is not even the best part. Through embryo cryopreservation technology, couples can avoid the financial and physical strain of undergoing multiple fresh IVF cycles.
Through FET, couples can try again – sooner than later – if their fresh IVF cycle fails. If the fresh IVF cycle is successful, the couple can undergo a FET at a time when they decide to have more children in the future.
Through world class laboratory technology, our pregnancy success rates through FET has increased substantially in recent years. That’s not all. Only high quality embryos are cryopreserve to be later transferred in future FET procedures. This success has made FETs an increasingly popular option to consider before considering a subsequent fresh IVF cycle. Bottom Line: With FET, couples can increase their chance of pregnancy per fresh egg retrieval and ultimately save money by avoiding the expense of another fresh IVF cycle.
To begin the FET procedure, hormone medication is administered to suppress the woman’s pituitary gland and reduce the chances of unexpected ovulation. Estrogen acts to thicken and mature the uterine lining – like the natural estrogen produced by a developing egg follicle during a normal menstrual cycle.
During estrogen administration, monitoring of the uterine lining is required.
Double Benefit of FET: Monitoring for timing of transfer during a FET cycle is more flexible than in a fresh IVF cycle. The FET procedure is much less stressful on patients because the transfer date can be adjusted.
Progesterone is a medication administered in preparation for the FET to make the uterine lining receptive to the implantation of the embryo.
Healthy pregnancies have been achieved after an embryo has been frozen for up to 10 years. Pregnancy success through FETs is determined by the quality of the frozen embryo.
Our fertility specialists promote the practice of Single Embryo Transfer (SET) to reduce health risks associated with multiple pregnancies and births. Cryopreservation of surplus embryos for future FET procedures is encouraged by the fertility specialists at New Hope Fertility NYC – in lieu of repeated, expensive fresh IVF cycles.
The flash-freezing technique of vitrification makes it possible to ready fresh embryos rapidly for cryopreservation. Using the vitrification method, embryos freeze quickly and damaging ice crystals do not form between cells. We are leaders in embryo cryopreservation. Dr. John Zhang was one of the first doctors in the United States to implement the vitrification method of embryo freezing.
It is important to work with a frozen embryo transfer expert having the clinical experience required to design a customized IVF treatment plan meeting your personal needs. To schedule your initial consultation with Dr. John Zhang at New Hope Fertility Center – call 212.969.7422.

Our December 12th egg freezing social event will cover:
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:
Social egg freezing should be offered to single women approaching their mid-thirties. 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
When you sign up for an egg freezing consultation, you will receive:
Your eggs don’t have to age – even if you do!
Egg Freezing is affordable at New Hope Fertility Center.
Because every patient’s personal, medical, and financial needs are different, we offer customized IVF treatment.
Pregnancy success rates using a woman’s egg that has been cryopreserved are comparable to success rates using a fresh egg.

Non-Invasive Chromosomal Screening (NICS) is an innovative and non-invasive genetic testing method used to detect chromosomal abnormalities in embryos culturing in vitro. NICS increases IVF and FET pregnancy success rates by up to 30%. NICS is an in vitro evaluation of the efficacy of a single-embryo transfer at the blastocyst stage (5 days growth). NICS is the sequencing of free genomic DNA in the culture medium of individual blastocysts and obtaining chromosomal ploidy information.
The development of NICS technology at New Hope Fertility Center marks a huge and truly a momentous achievement. We are now one of only a handful of centers around the world offering a validated and accurate platform for analyzing embryologic DNA in a completely non-invasive fashion.
This cutting-edge technology detects chromosomal deficiencies in embryos – aneuploidy – an extra or missing chromosome.
When abnormal embryos detected using NICS, they are discarded. Only quality embryos are transferred to the mother’s uterus – or – frozen (cryopreserved) for future FETs.
Other benefits of NICS in conjunction with IVF include:
NICS Can Increase IVF Pregnancy Success Rate Up To 30 Percent!
State-of-the-art genetics technologies have proven to increase IVF pregnancy rates. Through the medical marvel of NICS in conjunction with IVF, genetic and chromosomal abnormalities can be detected in embryos.
As a woman advances in age, the chance for low quality embryos increases.
Low quality embryos result in:

Dr. John Zhang is proud to offer a new IVF protocol specifically designed to help you successfully conceive a baby at home. You can now conveniently get pregnant with At-HOME IVF. Only one office visit is required for your outpatient egg retrieval. This is an individually designed IVF pick-up or deliverable package containing everything you need for an At-HOME IVF cycle – including fertility medications.
At-HOME IVF is a patient-friendly protocol designed to eliminate the fear, pain, and anxiety experienced with injections and blood draws. The patient’s ovaries are stimulated into producing multiple egg follicles through the use of oral fertility medications.
Patients are treated in a less-invasive manner.
Depending on the woman’s medical needs, an oral fertility medication – typically Clomid and/or Letrozole – is prescribed to gently stimulate her ovaries into producing multiple eggs. Synarel is administered nasally for 3 days at the beginning of the cycle and then again 36 hours prior to surgical egg retrieval to trigger ovulation.
Customized IVF care is the best. Remember: It only takes one good egg and one healthy sperm to make a baby. Our focus is to help you produce good quality eggs during a fresh IVF cycle – not a high quantity of eggs using large doses of injectable fertility medications. This policy is perfectly suited for our new Needle-Free IVF protocol.
