Since being introduced in the 1970s, Conventional IVF treatment has relied heavily upon high dosages of fertility medication – as many as 60 injections per cycle. Look: New Hope Fertility Center is the first program in the world to offer Needle-Free IVF. Why does this matter? It is now possible for women to undergo IVF without the need for injections or blood draws.
We have achieved another first by introducing Needle-Free IVF. This revolutionary holistic IVF protocol eliminates the fear, pain, and anxiety many patients experience with injections and blood draws – while at the same time, lowering the cost of fertility medications.
We are proud to offer our patients this new, simple and convenient Needle-Free IVF treatment protocol. The best part? Our Needle-Free IVF protocol stimulates a woman’s ovaries into producing multiple egg follicles through the use of oral fertility medications. That’s not all. Hormone levels are measured through urine and saliva tests during a Needle-Free IVF cycle.
Through Needle-Free IVF, patients are able to administer hormone stimulation in a less-invasive manner.
How is Needle-Free IVF patient-friendly?

According to a 2018 Pew Research Center Study, a majority of single women in their 40s are giving birth to at least one child by the time they reach 44. Look: Given the social and cultural shifts being experienced in America today, more women will be postponing childbearing into their 40s. Today, 55 percent of single women in their 40s have a child. Two decades ago, only 31 percent of women in their 40s gave birth. Why is this important? Because more women are having children later in life, they will face fertility challenges when trying to get pregnant and should consider IVF.
Because women are increasingly delaying motherhood into their late 30s and early 40s, they are typically placed on the fast-track to Mini-IVF™ Treatment. IVF is the First-Time, Go-To plan for achieving a successful pregnancy for women between the ages of 38 and 42.
Most women are waiting to plan their family later in life because they are more secure in their career and finances than their 20-something counterparts. Time is of the essence. Moving quickly past traditional first-line treatment options – such as Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) – and going straight to IVF has been proven to increase an older woman’s chances of conceiving faster.
In the case of older couples – between 38 and 42 – with unexplained infertility, a recent study favored going straight to IVF treatment.
Researchers have found that older women were more than twice as likely to become pregnant through IVF within the first two cycles of treatment.Read more: Why More Women Over 40 Are Having Babies
National Endometriosis Awareness Month in March is a movement to increase knowledge about a leading cause of female infertility.
Endometriosis affects one out of ten women. Endometriosis is one of the top three causes of female infertility.
Infertility is a classic and devastating symptom of endometriosis.
Dr. John Zhang – founder and medical director of New Hope Fertility Center – is an avid promoter of Endometriosis Awareness with the specific goals of:
Endometriosis affects a woman’s reproductive and surrounding organs when uterine lining tissue (endometrium) grows outside of the uterus and into other areas of her body.
This errant tissue is generated by hormones creating endometrial cells. The disease causes adhesions (scar tissue), lesions, and blood-filled cysts. Endometrial cells appearing in abnormal locations cause endometriosis. When these errant endometrial cells grow and then sluff off, there is no escape outlet from the body, and internal bleeding leads to:

The U.S. is in the midst of a prominent decline in child birth rates. Look: Ten years ago, the typical American woman had about 2.1 children. Today, she has about 1.77 – a decline in fertility being felt across the country. Bottom Line: Infertility is a challenge facing American women that needs more attention and awareness from society as well as the government. While infertility is rampant in the U.S., there’s still no government support to fund costly fertility treatments – such as IVF – opines Dr. John Zhang in a recent Fortune Magazine article addressing the crisis.
Ninety percent of couples who need IVF give up because it is costly and they don’t have an insurance company who covers the treatment, says Dr. Zhang. IVF treatments cost an average of $12,000 with the added expense of fertility medications ranging between $3,000 and $5,000.
According to Dr. Zhang, the U.S. Government still considers IVF to be an experimental procedure, even though millions of babies have been born using this phenomenal Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART). All research and clinical trials have been privately funded since the first IVF baby was born in the U.S. in 1981.
Dr. Zhang promotes awareness of female fertility preservation beyond just a funding perspective. The Doctor envisions a future where all American women take proactive steps to preserve their fertility. Ladies ages 25 to 35 should freeze their eggs if they don’t have plans to have a family in the next five to ten years, opines Dr. Zhang.
Over one million babies have been born using Cutting-Edge ART fertility treatments in the U.S. As of 2015, approximately 68,000 babies were born using IVF or other ART fertility treatments – an overall success rate of 32 percent.
At New Hope Fertility Center, we provide all-encompassing cryopreservation techniques for protecting the fertility of both women and men.

Today’s couples undergoing IVF treatment have the benefit of choosing the sex of their baby through PGS/NGS technology in order to plan their future family. Look: Gender selection is no longer being stigmatized as a social engineering tool used to make designer babies. There is a trending increase in demand for gender selection because our innovative IVF and genetic testing technology is more than 99% accurate. The best part? Gender identification and selection can help you to choose the sex of your baby for family balancing purposes.
Gender selection is a beneficial by-product of genetic testing. The good news: Through genetic testing, the sex of each embryo is identifiable. PGS and NGS technology works to identify embryos with chromosomal abnormalities while they culture in vitro (in the lab). Why is this important? PGS/NGS is the testing of an embryo’s overall chromosomal normalcy prior to being transferred to the patient’s uterus. Chromosomal abnormalities make an embryo too week to thrive into a fetus if it manages to implant into a woman’s uterine lining.
The chromosomes of a sperm determine an embryo’s gender.
We recommend universal blastocyst embryo screening for our patients because the procedure can help increase the chances of a pregnancy by 30 percent. Our fertility specialists recommend PGS/NGS in conjunction with IVF for:

Whether there is a clear medical reason, or when infertility is unexplained, life under the weight of fertility treatment can be an extreme struggle. Don’t despair. During fertility treatment, yoga is a magnificent and holistic way to prepare one’s body for pregnancy and birth. The best part? As a pregnancy enhancement tool, yoga is proven to reduce stress, balance hormones, and revamp one’s whole wellness in body, mind, and spirit.
Even if you’ve already started an IVF cycle, you can receive support and nurturing from yoga. There are a myriad of benefits from yoga. It can’t be emphasized enough: Always begin with a moderate yoga regimen – not high intensity exercise – and always get pre-approval from your fertility specialist. Look: Too much high intensity yoga or other exercise has been shown to hinder successful pregnancy outcomes.
You will discover a love for restorative or Yin style yoga practices that will nourish your mind and body while alleviating the stress associated with IVF treatment.
Yoga is easily adaptable to your lifestyle choices. If you have been practicing high intensity yoga methods – pump your brakes and adapt to a more moderate routine.

My revolutionary Mini-IVF™ can increase your chances of pregnancy without the need for large dosages of costly fertility medications. Why does this matter? No longer do you need to produce an excessive number of eggs to achieve a successful pregnancy. Here’s the deal: The goal with a Mini-IVF™ protocol is to produce between 3 and 5 quality eggs per fresh cycle. The best part: Pregnancy success rates for Mini-IVF™ are comparable to Conventional IVF.
Because lower dosages of fertility medications are prescribed to only produce 3 to 5 high quality eggs, the patient’s cost per Mini-IVF™ cycle is reduced. Bottom Line: The patient’s physical discomfort is lessened because her body is not forced into producing the typical 10 to 15 eggs reached in a Conventional IVF cycle.
Mini-IVF™ is the best treatment protocol for those women who have been:

A woman’s monthly, natural egg is the very best. This is why women are no longer required to undergo a painful regimen of self-administered fertility medication injections in order to get pregnant with the help of IVF. Look: Our Natural Cycle IVF™ – is a celebrated holistic IVF protocol. A woman in her prime reproductive years has as 26 percent chance of getting pregnant with the one natural egg her body produces each month. The best part? The Natural Cycle IVF™ ups a woman’s chances of getting pregnant and is almost completely drug-free – compared to Conventional IVF and Mini-IVF™.
Your body may need only a little coaxing to achieve a pregnancy with the one high quality egg you produce during your monthly cycle. Natural Cycle IVF™ is a holistic IVF protocol offering women the opportunity to avoid the health risks and expense of high dosages of fertility medications. The trepidation and pain of daily injections are virtually eliminated.
Our Policy: It only takes one good egg to have a healthy baby. IVF treatment plans are designed to focus on producing high quality eggs – not a large quantity of eggs. When multiple eggs are produced, many are not suitable for fertilization in vitro. Plus, treatment can be very difficult for 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.
