How Donna C. Got Pregnant at 42 With Our Customized IVF

Healthy Baby-1My IVF journey began when I was 39. I had five IVF failures (5) at three different fertility clinics in NYC before I came to New Hope Fertility Center. At my former clinics I was given high doses of drugs and produced many egg follicles. However, shortly after fertilization most of the embryos would arrest and the ones transferred to my uterus would not implant. I was diagnosed as hopelessly infertile.

Hope Finds A Way!

At 41 – discouraged and feeling hopeless – I came across New Hope and was intrigued by their mission of treating difficult patients. I met with Dr. Zhang and immediately felt comfortable and hopeful again. Dr. Zhang reviewed my records of previous IVF attempts and designed a different protocol for me. Unlike other clinics, New Hope has a customized regimen for each patient. They do not use a cookie-cutter approach.

Dr. Zhang and my fertility care team found the IVF regimen that worked best for me. I was given less drugs and then my embryos were frozen. At age 42, I had a successful frozen embryo transfer during my natural cycle. My husband and I now have a beautiful baby boy. – Donna C.

Customized IVF for Older Women

A high chance of pregnancy no longer depends on a woman producing large quantities of eggs in a single fresh IVF cycle. For older patient cases, our fertility specialists may forego prescribing a high dosage regimen of injectable fertility medications. Our One Good Egg Policy sets us apart from other fertility clinics by helping us achieve high IVF pregnancy success rates.

Our Successful One Good Egg Policy

Why does the production of one good egg matter? The quality – not quantity – of a patient’s eggs is key to a successful IVF pregnancy. Good News: The high pregnancy success rates of our Mini-IVF™Needle-Free IVFNatural Cycle IVF™ protocols rival those reached with Conventional IVF.

Holistic IVF Protocols

Our holistic IVF protocols are specifically designed to produce only high quality eggs, while at the same time reducing patient discomfort and cost per fresh cycle. Our mission is to custom design holistic IVF protocols using an evidence-based approach.

Only high quality eggs are fertilized in vitro using Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) – direct injection of a sperm into an egg. Embryos then begin to develop and are closely monitored in a high-tech controlled lab for five to six days (Blastocyst stage).


Our holistic Mini-IVF protocol prescribes a low dosage regimen of injectable fertility medications to coax a woman’s body into producing three to five high quality eggs for fertilization in vitro using ICSI.

Needle-Free IVF

We also offer a Needle-Free IVF protocol prescribing non-injection fertility medications. All fertility medications are self-administered orally and nasally. The patient’s hormone levels are monitored through saliva and urine tests. No daily injections or blood draws.

Natural Cycle IVF™

Our holistic Natural Cycle IVF™ monitors the patient’s naturally produced, one good monthly egg through blood tests and ultrasounds. This protocol provides for optimal ovulation trigger timing before surgical retrieval and fertilization using ICSI.

Egg Freezing for Older Women

Women 39 – 40 can now opt to freeze their quality eggs for future planned pregnancies and births of biologically-related children. To reserve your invite at our FREE January 15th Egg Freezing Social CLICK HERE.
