You can postpone motherhood past your prime childbearing years through the medical marvel of egg freezing – oocyte cryopreservation – Cutting Edge IVF Technology. Pregnancy success rates using a woman’s egg that has been cryopreserved are comparable to success rates using a fresh egg. Egg freezing is a phenomenal technology available for today’s women to preserve their fertility for tomorrow. Today’s women want to ensure they have the ability to be biologically connected to their children in the future.
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):
Egg freezing is accomplished through a fresh IVF cycle, stopping short of egg fertilization in vitro.
When the woman is ready to start building her family, the egg freezing process continues.
New Hope Fertility Center is a leader in egg freezing. Dr. John Zhang was one of the first doctors in the United States to implement the vitrification method of egg freezing. Dr. Zhang was the first doctor in New York to facilitate a live birth from a frozen egg. Vitrification is a flash freezing method preventing the formation of ice crystals between the cells making up a healthy egg.
For women who do not want to freeze and excessive number of her eggs, our Mini-IVF™ is a gentle – yet successful – holistic protocol helping to retrieve 3 to 5 high quality eggs. Your cost per Mini-IVF™ cycle is reduced because less fertility medications are prescribed. Pregnancy success rates for Mini-IVF™ are comparable to Conventional IVF.
It is important to work with a fertility doctor having the experience required to design a customized egg freezing protocol meeting your personal needs. To schedule your initial consultation with Dr. John Zhang, call 917.525.5496.
