If you want to get pregnant this New Year, you must give your fertility health a fresh start. You must be proactive in taking better care of yourself. Look: Give more attention to your overall health if you are planning on undergoing fertility treatment in 2020. Why is your health important? A healthy diet will increase your chances of conceiving and help to support a successful pregnancy. Nutrition and optimal fertility go hand-in-hand
A diet and fertility study has examined the impact of diet on fertility. Positive dietary effects on fertility for women have been linked to the intake of:
Nutrition plays an essential role in improving the chances of conception and supporting a healthy pregnancy. Diet matters greatly before pregnancy and solidifies healthy eating habits during pregnancy. Make sure you take your vitamin supplements containing folic acid.
A healthy body weight and diet is essential to increasing your chances of becoming pregnant. Strive to achieve and maintain a healthy body mass index (BMI) to keep your reproductive cycle in balance. A BMI of 19 to 24 indicates a healthy weight. Anything above 24 or below 19 may be hindering your chances of ovulation and conception.
Plan of Action to Get Pregnant
Make an appointment with a fertility specialist for a thorough reproductive examination and preliminary assessment of your reproductive health. Why does this matter? Up to 34 percent of infertility cases are due to structural issues with a woman’s reproductive system. Both female and male patients must undergo a complete fertility assessment to evaluate their reproductive health.
The good news! Flagging any potential medical cause of infertility is the quick and cost-effectively help you get pregnant over the summer. Once the problem is identified, great strides toward a pregnancy can be made through a customized treatment plan.

If you are venturing into 2020 with the resolution to finally get pregnant, a positive IVF attitude is crucial. Being proactive with your mental and emotional health care is key to a successful conception using cutting-edge fertility care. A woman’s whole body health benefits from fertility counseling during IVF treatment. Many challenges can be addressed through individual, couple, and group counseling.
Professional In-House Fertility Counseling with Allison Rosen Ph.D. is recommended by the fertility specialists at New Hope Fertility Center. That’s not all: We are dedicated to promoting how patients can increase their chances of achieving a healthy pregnancy through genetic testing in conjunction with In Vitro Fertilization (IVF).
As an experience clinical psychologist specializing in infertility, Dr. Allison Rosen has helped hundreds of couples cope during their struggle to have a baby.
Through individual, couple, and group counseling, the Doctor addresses the many challenges of dealing with infertility including:
Today’s Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) helps to increase the healthy birth rates of babies through genetic testing. This is because only the healthiest embryos are identified and transferred for implantation during a fresh IVF cycle or a future Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET). Genetic testing helps to reduce the number of cycles required to achieve a healthy pregnancy.
Recent research statistics show that a PGT-A biopsy and screening dramatically increases a woman’s chance of conception through IVF – by up to 30 percent. Cells are extracted from a blastocyst embryo and evaluated. Aneuploidy embryos are detected.
PGT-A is conducted in conjunction with Cutting-Edge IVF Protocols.
It is important to work with a renowned fertility counselor when you undergo IVF treatment. To schedule your initial consultation with Dr. Allison Rosen at New Hope Fertility Center call 212.969.7422.
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.
Dr. John Zhang’s PGT-M technology expertise in conjunction with IVF offers the highest pregnancy success rates and best overall patient satisfaction. To schedule your initial consultation with Dr. John Zhang call 212.969.7422.
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 email@example.com.
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.
