Too often, I hear stories of women who have been turned down by fertility clinics because they are difficult patients. These women have been declined based on their advanced reproductive age and/or poor prognosis for achieving a successful pregnancy through IVF treatment. At New Hope Fertility Center in NYC, age is never a discriminating factor for my patients.Why is this important? We do not boost our high IVF pregnancy success data by rejecting patients based on strict criteria. Taking on very difficult patients and helping them overcome their infertility encompasses the overall goal of our One Good Egg Policy. Here, we are committed to treating all patients suffering from infertility – regardless of their diagnosed difficulty. Bottom Line: To get pregnant successfully, only one good egg and one healthy sperm is needed.
In recent years, egg freezing parties are being sponsored by many fertility clinics. Fertility specialist reach out to women wanting to know more about the medical phenomena of egg freezing to preserve their future fertility. Potential patient are invited to a social party where they will be educated and informed about the benefits of egg freezing.
It’s very important to realize that egg freezing is not just beneficial to young women in their 20s. Today, many women in their late 30s or early 40s have successfully frozen their eggs.
These women were blessed with a baby when they decided the time is right for them to get pregnant. I recommend women take action to freeze their eggs in their mid to late 30s for the best chance of a successful pregnancy in their 40s.
Successful pregnancies achieve the highest rates when eggs are thawed and transferred to the patient within five years. However, oocytes can be frozen indefinitely.
As the Medical Director for New Hope Fertility Center, I see many women considering egg freezing in their late 30’s and early 40’s.Read more: Preserving Your Fertility Through Egg Freezing in 2017
Egg freezing – oocyte cryopreservation – is a phenomenal medical technology available for today’s women to preserve their fertility for tomorrow. These women want to ensure they have the ability to be biologically connected to their children in the future. Embryo cryopreservation – using known or donor sperm – is also becoming increasingly popular as a means for women to preserve their ability to have a family.
Egg and embryo freezing is increasingly being sought out by:
By preserving their eggs through oocyte cryopreservation, women can postpone motherhood past their prime childbearing years. Pregnancy success rates using a woman’s egg that has been cryopreserved, thawed and fertilized are comparable to success rates using a fresh egg.
After a woman’s eggs have been harvested through a fresh IVF cycle, they are frozen using an advanced technology known as vitrification. This is a flash-freezing method to ensure the egg is not damaged by ice crystals forming between cells. New Hope Fertility NYC is an international leader in egg freezing technology. Dr. John Zhang was one of the first fertility specialists in the United States to use the vitrification method to freeze eggs and is celebrated for being the first doctor in New York to accomplish a live birth from a frozen oocyte.
There are varied holistic protocols of IVF offered by pioneering IVF Dr. Zhang
When a woman is ready to start her family, the eggs are thawed, fertilized with sperm in vitro and transferred for implantation into her uterine lining.
Contact Dr. John Zhang if you interested in preserving your fertility through egg freezing. It is important to work with a fertility specialist who is accomplished in egg freezing technology.

The natural aging process has a dramatic effect on the quality of a woman’s eggs. A woman in her prime reproductive years (early 20s and early 30s) has the option of freezing her eggs to preserve her future fertility into her advanced reproductive years (mid-30s and early 40s + beyond):
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.
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.
