The History of Egg Freezing and Dr. Zhang’s Contributions

Posted by New Hope Fertility Center

The natural maternal aging process has a dramatic negative effect on the quality of a woman’s eggs. The Good News: Thanks to the 20 plus years of research and clinical experience in successful egg freezing by Dr. John Zhang, women no longer have to be cornered into motherhood by their biological clocks. A woman has the option of freezing her eggs to preserve her future fertility into her advanced reproductive years (mid- to late -30s to early 40s + Beyond).

The younger your eggs are when trying to conceive, the better chance you will have of getting pregnant. If you know that one day you would like to become a mother, but feel that now is just not the time, I recommend freezing your eggs. – Dr. John Zhang as quoted in Parenting.

Why High Quantity Egg Production Reduces the Quality of an IVF Egg Freezing Cycle

Posted by New Hope Fertility Center

A successful IVF egg freezing cycle is no longer based on prescribing a high dosage regimen of fertility medications. A woman’s body does not need to produce large quantities of eggs for an egg freezing cycle to be successful. It is the quality – not quantity – of the patient’s frozen eggs that is key to a successful future thawing and transfer. The production of large quantities of poor quality eggs actually decreases future pregnancy success rates.

How Mike & Jenny Overcame Secondary Infertility

Posted by New Hope Fertility Center

My first pregnancy was over 10 years ago. At the time, my husband and I decided to wait a few more years to have our second child. We planned to start trying for our second by the time our first son turned four. Unfortunately, life doesn’t always go according to plan. As time passed and nothing was happening, we decided to just let it go. Life got in the way and I rationalized my inability to conceive naturally by telling myself “This is God’s plan . . .” I tried to stay grateful for our one son.

FAFTA: Is IVF Cost Coverage Mandated When You’ve Had Prior Failed Cycles?

Posted by New Hope Fertility Center

Even if you have excellent medical coverage under a large-group insurance provider in New York, there may be a fine-line in determining whether you’re covered for up to three IVF cycles by the newly enacted Fair Access to Fertility Treatment ActFAFTA. Questionable coverage could arise if you’ve undergone previous multiple IVF cycle failures. If your large-group medical insurance carrier did not provide coverage for your past IVF cycle failures, it should be now mandated under FAFTA to pay for up to three cycles.

FAFTA: Is Your Egg Freezing Cost Covered by Medical Insurance?

Posted by New Hope Fertility Center

Many women today are deciding to delay motherhood past their prime reproductive years – age 18 to 35. A woman’s egg quality precipitously declines after age 37. Modern egg freezing technology helps women have peace of mind when choosing to postpone pregnancy to further their careers or to find a life partner. Socially-inspired egg freezing procedure costs and banking expenses for future fertility preservation are generally not mandated by New York’s newly enacted Fair Access to Fertility Treatment ActFAFTA. However, when a woman is suffering from a medical condition, such as endometriosis, the freezing of her quality eggs should be covered by medical insurance to increase her chances of a future pregnancy.

Bottom Line: You should always consult with a fertility specialist to make sure whether or not you have a medical condition that may kick in your insurance benefits.
