Many women undergoing IVF are choosing the sex of their baby through PGS/NGS technology. Celebrities and public figures, like Chrissy Teigen recently interviewed by Vogue, are increasingly opening up the discussion surrounding gender selection. Look: No longer is gender selection frowned upon as a social engineering tool used to make designer babies. What’s the bottom line? Gender selection is an accepted fertility procedure used to choose the sex of a baby for family balancing purposes.
Demand for gender selection is growing and our innovative IVF and genetic testing technology has been responding in kind with more than 99% accuracy. That’s not all. Gender selection is an inevitable by-product of genetic testing. Through genetic testing, the sex of each embryo is identifiable.
PGS and NGS technology works to identify embryos with chromosomal abnormalities while they culture during the IVF process. The best part? PGS/NGS is the testing of an embryo’s overall chromosomal normalcy prior to being transferred to the patient’s uterus. Chromosomal abnormalities make an embryo too week to thrive into a fetus if it manages to implant into a woman’s uterine lining.
The gender of an embryo is determined by the chromosomes carried in the sperm.
Universal blastocyst embryo screening is recommended for our patients because the procedure can help increase the chances of a pregnancy by 30 percent. Our fertility specialists recommend PGS/NGS in conjunction with IVF for:
It is my strict policy to never turn away women with high FSH levels. Why is this important? Unlike other fertility clinics who refuse to treat women having low egg production due to high FSH levels, I put the patient first at New Hope Fertility NYC. Every patient is unique and deserves to be treated as an individual. Innovative IVF protocols and first-class technology are offered to all women regardless of their FSH level.
Quality embryo development is crucial to a successful pregnancy via an In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) cycle. It can’t be emphasized enough. Identifying quality embryos developing in vitro is critical. The EmbryoScope is an innovative, cutting edge, time-lapsed photography and software solution. Look: The EmbryoScope allows the close monitoring of each embryo’s in vitro growth and development without disturbing the culturing process.
The EmbryoScope is technology designed to improve IVF outcomes.
You can preserve your future fertility through ovarian tissue freezing. Why is this good news? The National Institutes of Health reported that [h]uman ovarian tissue transplantation has resulted in the birth of over 70 children worldwide. Look: Preserving female fertility through ovarian tissue freezing is trending today because it is a proven safe and successful procedure.
There are many females who should consider ovarian tissue freezing.
The celebrated fertility specialists at New Hope Fertility NYC provide all-encompassing cryopreservation techniques for protecting the fertility of both women and men.
For women between the ages of 38 and 42 – I believe that placing them on the fast-track to In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) treatment is the best course of action. Why does this matter? Moving past other first-line alternative treatments – such as Timed Intercourse and Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) – and going straight to IVF has been proven to increase an older woman’s chances of conceiving faster. Look: IVF saves older couples from the financial, physical, and emotional stress of repeated failed infertility treatment cycles. Plus: IVF offers those couples suffering from male factor infertility the benefits of Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) – the direct injection of healthy sperm into an egg for fertilization in vitro. Double Plus: IVF is a means of having an older couple’s embryos graded for health through genetic screening, such as PGD and/or PGS/NGS technology.
In the case of older couples – between 38 and 42 – with unexplained infertility, a recent study favored going straight to IVF treatment. What does this recent research show?
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.Read more: Why IVF is the Best First-Time Treatment Option for Older Women
I focus my skills as a fertility specialist on designing a fertility treatment protocol producing one high quality egg for every patient. One good egg fertilized by healthy sperm has the best chance of successfully achieving a pregnancy through IVF. Why is this important? Large quantities of eggs are no longer pivotal in the practice of In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). Bottom line: You can now opt for the One Good Egg Policy at New Hope Fertility NYC.
When multiple eggs are produced, many are not suitable for fertilization in vitro. A heavy regimen of ovarian hyperstimulation hormone medications are very hard on a woman – physically and financially. It’s an evidence-based policy. One healthy, quality egg is capable of achieving IVF pregnancy success for those difficult patients who have been turned away by other fertility clinics.
My One Good Egg Policy is:
I can’t emphasize enough: We do not boost our high IVF pregnancy success data results by rejecting patients based on strict criteria. Taking on very difficult patients and helping them overcome their infertility encompasses the overall goal of my One Good Egg policy. Here, we are committed to treating all patients suffering from infertility – regardless of their diagnosed difficulty. Know this: To get pregnant successfully through IVF at New Hope Fertility NYC, only one good egg and one healthy sperm is needed.Read more: Dr. Zhang’s One Good Egg Policy
