All the doctors at New Hope Fertility Center and patients hope that everyone would have a good result from their treatments, and we are all looking forward to be able to help many couples and women achieve their dream of being a parent.
According to research, the miscarriage rate increases as a woman gets older. Women who are undergoing IVF treatment can benefit from Pre-implantation Genetic Screening (PGS). PGS evaluates an embryo to determine if it has the correct number of chromosomes. Having too many or too few chromosomes is evidence of a genetic defect. This test does not look for specific diseases, rather it aims to identify embryos that have an abnormal number of chromosomes. As a woman ages, the chance of her having embryos with an abnormal number of chromosomes rises.

One of the first hot topics that I wanted to post about are Array Comparative Genomic Hybridization (aCGH) and Time-Lapse monitoring via Embryoscope. I recently co-authored a pilot study that indicated that implantation and ongoing pregnancy rates improve when time-lapse monitoring is combined with aCGH in IVF patients undergoing preimplantation genetic screening.Read more: Dr. Zhang’s October Pick of the Month
