For women between the ages of 38 and 42 – I believe that placing them on the fast-track to In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) treatment is the best course of action. Why does this matter? Moving past other first-line alternative treatments – such as Timed Intercourse and Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) – and going straight to IVF has been proven to increase an older woman’s chances of conceiving faster. Look: IVF saves older couples from the financial, physical, and emotional stress of repeated failed infertility treatment cycles. Plus: IVF offers those couples suffering from male factor infertility the benefits of Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) – the direct injection of healthy sperm into an egg for fertilization in vitro. Double Plus: IVF is a means of having an older couple’s embryos graded for health through genetic screening, such as PGD and/or PGS/NGS technology.
In the case of older couples – between 38 and 42 – with unexplained infertility, a recent study favored going straight to IVF treatment. What does this recent research show?
Researchers have found that older women were more than twice as likely to become pregnant through IVF within the first two cycles of treatment. The best part? They were twice as likely to have a healthy baby from their IVF pregnancy.Read more: Why IVF is the Best First-Time Treatment Option for Older Women
I focus my skills as a fertility specialist on designing a fertility treatment protocol producing one high quality egg for every patient. One good egg fertilized by healthy sperm has the best chance of successfully achieving a pregnancy through IVF. Why is this important? Large quantities of eggs are no longer pivotal in the practice of In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). Bottom line: You can now opt for the One Good Egg Policy at New Hope Fertility NYC.
When multiple eggs are produced, many are not suitable for fertilization in vitro. A heavy regimen of ovarian hyperstimulation hormone medications are very hard on a woman – physically and financially. It’s an evidence-based policy. One healthy, quality egg is capable of achieving IVF pregnancy success for those difficult patients who have been turned away by other fertility clinics.
My One Good Egg Policy is:
I can’t emphasize enough: We do not boost our high IVF pregnancy success data results by rejecting patients based on strict criteria. Taking on very difficult patients and helping them overcome their infertility encompasses the overall goal of my One Good Egg policy. Here, we are committed to treating all patients suffering from infertility – regardless of their diagnosed difficulty. Know this: To get pregnant successfully through IVF at New Hope Fertility NYC, only one good egg and one healthy sperm is needed.Read more: Dr. Zhang’s One Good Egg Policy
At the request of parents undergoing In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), gender selection is accomplished through a medical technology known as Preimplantation Genetic Screening (PGS/NGS). The PGS process takes place in conjunction with a fresh IVF cycle by an experienced embryologist while the embryos are developing in vitro. After several days of embryo development in vitro, all embryos undergo PGS to determine each embryo’s gender before transfer to the woman’s uterus for implantation into her uterine lining.
Family balancing is available to New Hope Fertility NYC patients through PGS in conjunction with IVF because gender identification of embryos is an inevitable by-product of the technology. Gender selection through PGS allows parents to select the sex of their child with more than 99 percent accuracy.Read more: How Gender Selection is Accomplished Through PGS
Without a doubt, beginning acupuncture treatment three months before your IVF transfer will enhance your chances of a successful pregnancy. Studies have shown that women who underwent acupuncture before, during and after IVF embryo transfer increased their chances of pregnancy by up to 42 percent. Why is this important? The pregnancy success rate of those who did not undergo acupuncture was only 26 percent.
These phenomenal IVF success rates are why New Hope Fertility NYC is set to unveil its in-house acupuncture therapy treatment program in July of 2017! Our acupuncturists are specially trained in acupuncture therapy with a focus on treating women’s infertility. The World Health Organization (WHO) and the National Institutes for Health have found that acupuncture is a viable and accepted method of treating female infertility.
Acupuncture points are located on meridians through which gi vital energy runs. The procedure involves the insertion of very thin needles through the patient’s skin in targeted areas of the head, torso, limbs and extremities. These needles are inserted at various depths, depending upon the patient’s diagnosed medical condition.
A healthy body is the result of a harmonious balance of the life force known by traditional Chinese medicine as gi or chi – energies flowing through pathways within the body. There are 350 acupuncture points in the human body. The body’s energy pathways are accessed through the insertion of small, thin needles in targeted areas of discomfort to release or redirect the body’s energy. Through acupuncture therapy, the body is brought back into its proper balance.
The acupuncture points chosen for treatment of female infertility result in:
Acupuncture can begin at any time during your fertility treatment – but this is the best plan of action:
That’s not all the good news. Other holistic therapies have proved to help IVF pregnancy success rates. These therapies can be used in conjunction with acupuncture to enhance your IVF pregnancy success rate.
Beginning acupuncture therapy before you start a fertility drug regimen will help to prepare your body for the physical stress it is about to undergo. Turning to acupuncture during your fertility drug regimen will help with unpleasant side effects:

Genetic screening of embryos – Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) – allows fertility specialists to test and identify those embryos having a genetic defect. PGD prevents hereditary diseases from being passed from parents to their children. Dr. John Zhang recommends PGD in conjunction with IVF for couples who are known carriers of a single gene disorder (genetic disease).
The most common single cell genetic diseases tested for through PGD are:
All fertility specialists in the United States report and verify data on the outcomes of Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) procedures performed in their clinics over the calendar year. According to the success rates report by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), there were 231,936 ART cycles performed by 464 clinics in the U.S. during the last reporting period. The demand for the practice of ART has doubled over the past 10 years and 1.6 of all babies born in the U.S. were conceived using ART.
The most sought-after ART procedure is In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). IVF involves the surgical extraction of a woman’s egg to be fertilized in laboratory – in vitro. After an embryo has cultured in vitro to a prime stage of development, it is transferred to the woman’s uterus through her cervix.
Yearly ART data on IVF success rates is a rich source of information for potential IVF patients. This data gives patients an idea of their average chances of pregnancy success through IVF. Read more: How to Read IVF Success Rates and Locate a Top Clinic
