Mini-IVF™ is a protocol pioneered by internationally renowned fertility specialist – Dr. John Zhang - founder of New Hope Fertility NYC. This holistic IVF protocol substantially decreases the amount of fertility medication prescribed to patients. As opposed to giving large doses of medication to produce a high quantity of eggs during a Conventional IVF, Mini-IVF™ gently stimulates a woman’s body to produce fewer high quality eggs (3 to 5 eggs per cycle). The goal of a Mini-IVF™ protocol is to produce only high quality eggs better suited to achieving a healthy embryo and successful pregnancy.
New Hope Fertility NYC offers its trademarked Minimal Stimulation IVF – Mini-IVF™ – for less than the cost of conventional IVF. Contact us for most current pricing on Mini-IVF™. Quoted Mini-IVF™ fees do not include the expense of fertility medications, which can range up to $1,500, depending upon the patient’s needs. Pregnancy success rates for Mini-IVF™ are comparable to Conventional IVF without the high cost.
Common costs of Mini-IVF™ include:

At the request of parents undergoing In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), gender selection is accomplished through a medical technology known as Preimplantation Genetic Screening (PGS/NGS). The PGS process takes place in conjunction with a fresh IVF cycle by an experienced embryologist while the embryos are developing in vitro. After several days of embryo development in vitro, all embryos undergo PGS to determine each embryo’s gender before transfer to the woman’s uterus for implantation into her uterine lining.
Family balancing is available to New Hope Fertility NYC patients through PGS in conjunction with IVF because gender identification of embryos is an inevitable by-product of the technology. Gender selection through PGS allows parents to select the sex of their child with more than 99 percent accuracy.Read more: How Gender Selection is Accomplished Through PGS
Without a doubt, beginning acupuncture treatment three months before your IVF transfer will enhance your chances of a successful pregnancy. Studies have shown that women who underwent acupuncture before, during and after IVF embryo transfer increased their chances of pregnancy by up to 42 percent. Why is this important? The pregnancy success rate of those who did not undergo acupuncture was only 26 percent.
These phenomenal IVF success rates are why New Hope Fertility NYC is set to unveil its in-house acupuncture therapy treatment program in July of 2017! Our acupuncturists are specially trained in acupuncture therapy with a focus on treating women’s infertility. The World Health Organization (WHO) and the National Institutes for Health have found that acupuncture is a viable and accepted method of treating female infertility.
Acupuncture points are located on meridians through which gi vital energy runs. The procedure involves the insertion of very thin needles through the patient’s skin in targeted areas of the head, torso, limbs and extremities. These needles are inserted at various depths, depending upon the patient’s diagnosed medical condition.
A healthy body is the result of a harmonious balance of the life force known by traditional Chinese medicine as gi or chi – energies flowing through pathways within the body. There are 350 acupuncture points in the human body. The body’s energy pathways are accessed through the insertion of small, thin needles in targeted areas of discomfort to release or redirect the body’s energy. Through acupuncture therapy, the body is brought back into its proper balance.
The acupuncture points chosen for treatment of female infertility result in:

Genetic screening of embryos – Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) – allows fertility specialists to test and identify those embryos having a genetic defect. PGD prevents hereditary diseases from being passed from parents to their children. Dr. John Zhang recommends PGD in conjunction with IVF for couples who are known carriers of a single gene disorder (genetic disease).
The most common single cell genetic diseases tested for through PGD are:
All fertility specialists in the United States report and verify data on the outcomes of Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) procedures performed in their clinics over the calendar year. According to the success rates report by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), there were 231,936 ART cycles performed by 464 clinics in the U.S. during the last reporting period. The demand for the practice of ART has doubled over the past 10 years and 1.6 of all babies born in the U.S. were conceived using ART.
The most sought-after ART procedure is In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). IVF involves the surgical extraction of a woman’s egg to be fertilized in laboratory – in vitro. After an embryo has cultured in vitro to a prime stage of development, it is transferred to the woman’s uterus through her cervix.
Yearly ART data on IVF success rates is a rich source of information for potential IVF patients. This data gives patients an idea of their average chances of pregnancy success through IVF. Read more: How to Read IVF Success Rates and Locate a Top Clinic
Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) is a method of addressing male-factor infertility during In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) treatment. Rather than allowing fertilization to happen by combining eggs and sperm in a lab dish, ICSI entails the injection of a single sperm directly into an egg in order to facilitate fertilization. Knowing more about the ICSI process, and its effectiveness, can help you decide if this ancillary treatment in conjunction with IVF is an option for you.
In order to be considered fertile, a man’s sperm must:
Should any of these functions be diagnosed as abnormal, a man may not be able to impregnate a woman because his sperm cannot penetrate her egg. A man may be infertile even if he produces adequate quantities of sperm in ejaculate. Should his sperm be misshaped or not move correctly, fertilization will be difficult, if not impossible.Read more: How ICSI Enhances IVF Pregnancy Success
Embryology is key to pregnancy success through In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) technology because it is the study of an embryo from the first stage of fertilization through fetal development. High quality embryos have the highest chance of implantation into a woman’s uterine lining resulting in a successful pregnancy. After egg retrieval, one or two healthy embryos are transferred after a fresh IVF cycle. Excess embryos culturing in vitro are cryopreserved for future pregnancies through Frozen Embryo Transfers (FET).
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.
