Infertility Awareness

  • History of previous pregnancies
  • History of previous miscarriages
  • Number of failed IVF cycles – fresh and frozen embryo transfers
  • Number of embryos transferred in a single cycle
  • IVF protocol recommended
  • IVF ancillary procedures used – ICSI, Assisted Hatching, In Vitro Maturation
  • Genetic testing to select only quality embryos for transfer – PGD, PGS/NGS
  • Gender Selection

Best IVF Protocols

Difficult Patients Welcome

We don’t refuse those patients diagnosed as a difficult case. At New Hope Fertility Center, we welcome patients rejected by other fertility specialists because they are deemed to be hopelessly infertile.

  • No refusals based on a woman’s advanced maternal age
  • No refusals based on low FSH levels
  • No refusals based on the number of potential eggs (follicles) a woman can produce per fresh cycle
  • No refusals because a woman does not respond well to fertility medication

One Good Egg Policy

Customized IVF care is the best. Remember: It only takes one good egg and one healthy sperm to make a baby. Our focus is to help you produce good quality eggs during a fresh IVF cycle – not a high quantity of eggs using large doses of injectable fertility medications.
