Many women spend a large portion of their reproductive years trying to prevent pregnancy. Some women are focused on career while others are waiting for the right partner to start a family with. No matter the reason, many women find themselves needing help while trying to conceive during their 30s and 40s. The main culprit is a woman’s biological clock. More than just a metaphor, a woman’s biological clock can make all of the difference in her ability to get pregnant.
The uterus is the cradle of life where the fetus is conceived and grows. So where does the fetus come from? The fetus is created by a man (his sperm) and a woman (her eggs). Where are eggs produced? Eggs are created in the ovaries. Ovaries are small walnut-like organs that are one of the main organs of a woman’s reproductive system.
I recently had two patients come in for egg freezing that would like to transfer their already frozen eggs to New Hope Fertility Center from two other large New York City fertility centers.
Embryo banking is a large part of fertility treatment and fertility preservation. Embryo banking is a useful fertility tool for a number of individuals on their quest to grow their families. Understanding how and when embryo banking is used can help to make fully informed reproductive decisions.
You can LOOK YOUNGER. You can FEEL YOUNGER. Are you prepared to actually be able to REVERSE THE AGING PROCESS of your fertility?
New Hope Fertility Center in NYC is actually cutting the edge of technology and turning science fiction into SCIENCE FACT! Years ahead of his time, Dr. John Zhang introduced Egg Freezing at New Hope in 2004, making New Hope Fertility Center the first fertility clinic in the United States to offer Egg Freezing and Vitrification.
Fertility preservation has been in the news recently as more and more companies offer it as a benefit to female employees. Often thought of as a means to protect younger women’s fertility, egg and embryo freezing also allows older women to beat their biological clocks.
Hi everyone. Fertility preservation has been in the news recently as more and more companies are extending fertility preservation as a covered health benefit. For women, fertility preservation may be done in two primary ways; oocyte freezing and embryo freezing. Where a woman is in life and what she wants out of the fertility preservation process will help determine which preservation method is best for her needs.
Women are increasingly turning to egg freezing to preserve their fertility. Although women are biologically most fertile before age 35, this timeline is not always ideal. Egg freezing harvests younger, healthier eggs and stores them until a woman is ready to start a family. Although there is a cost for this service, the benefits can far outweigh the costs. Additionally, in some instances egg freezing is covered by insurance.
As women’s roles change in society, their view of family is evolving. Women still want to become mothers and to start a family, but later in life. However, biologically, women are best equipped to start a family before age 35. Egg freezing and fertility preservation provides the peace of mind that when a woman is ready to start a family, she will have healthy eggs available.
More and more women are looking to start a family on their own terms, once they are ready. Readiness means different things to different people. Some women want to achieve career aspirations before starting a family. Others may have personal goals like traveling the world or purchasing a home in their ideal neighborhood that they want to achieve first. For women who are in a committed relationship, or who intend to use donor sperm, embryo banking may be the ideal fertility preservation method.
