Yes. Age is a real factor when considering a woman’s egg quality when she is undergoing infertility treatment. As she ages past her prime maternal years, the quality of a woman’s eggs begins to decline – precipitously after age 37. A decrease in egg quality and quantity may be the reason behind a couple’s difficulty in conceiving and maintaining a successful pregnancy. Being aware of how a woman’s age can impact her fertility can help couples to make fully-informed decisions about what treatment option is best for them.
A woman in her prime reproductive years – 20s – has as 26 percent chance of getting pregnant with the one natural egg her body produces each month. Don’t despair if you are in your 30s or early 40s. Your quality eggs can still make a healthy baby. A woman is born with between 1 and 2 million eggs – however – she only releases 300 to 400 eggs through each natural ovulation cycle during her lifetime. Typically, a woman only releases one egg per month during her natural cycle. New Hope Fertility NYC’s policy: It only takes one good quality egg to have a healthy baby.
The fertility specialists at New Hope Fertility NYC focus IVF treatment plans on producing high quality eggs – One Good Egg Policy – not a large quantity of eggs. When multiple eggs are produced, many are not suitable for fertilization in vitro and treatment is very hard on patients – physically and financially. Why is this important? Healthy, quality eggs achieve high IVF success rates for even those difficult patients who have been turned away from treatment at other fertility clinics. Bottom Line: For older women to get pregnant successfully through IVF, only one good egg and one healthy sperm is needed.
Women diagnosed as difficult or hopelessly infertile by other fertility clinics are welcomed at New Hope Fertility NYC. Because of our One Good Egg Policy, our fertility specialists happily accept candidates for IVF that other fertility clinics decline to treat.
Treatment for these women is focused on a more holistic approach through a minimal stimulation protocol which substantially reduces the amount of fertility medication used during an IVF cycle. Introducing: The Revolutionary Mini-IVF™.
For women 38 or younger, the specialists at New Hope Fertility NYC prescribe a minimal amount of fertility medication to produce between six to eight quality eggs per fresh IVF cycle. Our revolutionary holistic alternative approach to Conventional IVF is focused on a gentle stimulation protocol known as Mini-IVF™. This trademarked minimal stimulation IVF has been endorsed by Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART)
The many benefits of the Mini-IVF™ protocol include:
National studies show that IVF success rates are not increased for older women who produce more than three eggs per single cycle. Producing large quantities of eggs can cause older women to gain weight. When a large quantity of eggs are produce, a longer physical recuperation time between cycles is required when IVF is unsuccessful.
