Simple Plan of Action

  • Step 1: Schedule your initial consultation with a fertility specialist
  • Step 2: Discover why you are having trouble getting pregnant
  • Step 3: Implement a customized fertility treatment plan of action

Schedule an Initial Consultation

To avoid any medical complications preventing you from conceiving this New Year, make an appointment with a fertility specialist for a thorough reproductive examination and preliminary evaluation. It can’t be emphasized enough – up to 34 percent of infertility cases are due to structural issues with a woman’s reproductive system. At New Hope Fertility Center, both men and women undergo a complete fertility assessment to evaluate their reproductive health.

Why does this matter? Flagging any potential cause of infertility is the only way to quickly and cost-effectively help you get pregnant this New Year. Once the cause of infertility is identified, a customized treatment plan will be designed based on your medical and personal needs.

Ovulation Regularity Check

Timing is everything when a couple is trying to conceive. Here’s the deal: A woman’s ovulation cycle can be medically monitored to determine the optimal time for sexual intercourse – her ovulation window. Timed intercourse therapy is an increasingly popular method of monitoring a woman’s ovulation cycle through ultrasound and blood tests. When your ovulation window has been identified, our fertility team will let you know the optimal time for you and your partner to have sexual intercourse.

Ovarian Reserve Check

A woman is born with between 2 and 3 million eggs. When a woman reaches her mid-30s, there is a significant drop in her ovarian reserve and age-related infertility is the natural consequence. Our fertility specialists focus on maximizing the quality of a woman’s egg production – not quantity of eggs. Look! This is our one good egg policy.

One Good Egg Policy

When multiple eggs are produced, many are not suitable for fertilization in vitro (in the lab) and treatment is very hard on patients – physically and financially. Why is this important? Healthy, quality eggs achieve high IVF success rates for even those difficult patients who have been turned away from treatment at other fertility clinics. Bottom Line: For older women to get pregnant successfully through IVF, only one good egg and one healthy sperm is needed.

We welcome women diagnosed as difficult or hopelessly infertile by other fertility clinics. Because of our One Good Egg Policy, our fertility specialists happily accept candidates for IVF that other fertility clinics decline to treat.

  • Women who have high FSH levels
  • Women who are unable to produce 10 to 15 eggs during a single IVF cycle
  • Women who do not tolerate fertility medications well
  • Women who are at an advanced maternal age for fertility treatment

Treatment for these women is focused on a more holistic approach through a minimal stimulation protocol which substantially reduces the amount of fertility medication used during an IVF cycle.

Getting Pregnant in the New Year

The key to getting pregnant this New Year is to schedule a consultation with a fertility center having the experience to design customized treatment plan for your personal medical needs.
