Increasing Pregnancy Success Through Genetic Testing

Today’s Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) helps to increase the healthy birth rates of babies through genetic testing. This is because only the healthiest embryos are transferred for implantation during a fresh IVF cycle and/or Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET). Genetic testing helps to reduce the number of cycles required to achieve a healthy pregnancy.

Increasing Pregnancy Success Through HRSS and ICSI

High Resolution Sperm Selection (HRSS) optimizes the selection of quality sperm. Look: Because male-factor infertility is the cause or contributing factor to a couple’s inability to get pregnant naturally in one-third of cases, quality sperm is crucial. The best part? The process HRSS and Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) administration has improved overall IVF pregnancy success rates.

  • Higher positive pregnancy rates
  • More successful embryo implantations
  • Increased full-term pregnancies

HRSS Increases IVF Pregnancy Success Rates

At New Hope Fertility Center, our patients have a high chance of IVF pregnancy success through the use of HRSS technology. It can’t be emphasized enough. The best quality embryos are created in vitro by using the healthiest sperm to fertilize one good egg.

  • Higher positive pregnancy rates
  • More successful embryo implantations
  • Increased full-term pregnancies

In addition to noticeable increases in pregnancy success rates achieved through HRSS technology, studies have shown a decline in the rate of spontaneous abortions occurring in IVF pregnancies.

HRSS and ICSI

Using HRSS, our embryologists are able to better visualize sperm for Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) administration. Identifying and choosing high quality sperm to fertilize an egg is crucial in male-factor infertility cases. Any and all negative influence of male-factor infertility must be negated to ensure successful embryo development. Why does this matter? HRSS technology is helping embryologists see, identify, and choose only high quality sperm cells for fertilization of an egg in vitro. Bottom line: Couples who have multiple failed IVF cycles are the primary benefactors of HRSS.

Male-Factor Infertility

New Hope Fertility Center is one of only a few fertility treatment providers offering HRSS technology to treat male-factor infertility. Look: HRSS optimizes the sperm selection process for improving the success of ICSI.

HRSS Technology

At 6000 x magnification – using Differential Interference Contrast (DIC) microscopy – it is possible for embryologists to see finer morphological details of sperm. Using conventional 500 x magnification, these details would go unnoticed.

The best part? By viewing sperm cells at 6000 x magnification, lab technicians can identify quality sperm cells that are optimum for fertilization of a healthy egg.

Once optimum sperm cells have been identified, a two-pronged process takes place.

  • Selection
  • Injection

Once the quality sperm cells are selected and separated using HRSS, they are injected into the egg for fertilization. Each egg receives a single sperm injection.

  • Reduces chances of a negative impact a sperm can have on a perfectly healthy egg
  • Removes any negative influence that male-factor infertility may have on successful embryo development
  • Increase the chances of a viable pregnancy

HRSS Identifies Optimum Sperm

A sperm cell’s normal appearance makes it more likely to be comprised of normal chromosomes and DNA structure. Here’s the deal: Optimum sperm morphology correlates directly with successful egg fertilization and embryo implantation. Morphology is the most important criteria when judging the quality of a sperm cell.

  • Sperm motility – ability of the cell to swim
  • Sperm morphology – overall assessment of the cell’s shape, size, and physical appearance
