In Very Well Family (8/20/18) – Dr. John Zhang explains that producing too many eggs with large doses of fertility drugs can backfire and cause medical problems such as PCOS. Our revolutionary Needle-Free IVF protocol has changed the entire landscape of IVF treatment. It is a simple, convenient, and patient-friendly IVF protocol. A woman’s body no longer needs to be forced into overproducing eggs to achieve a successful pregnancy.
Needle-Free IVF Benefits
- No more high cost of fertility medication injections
- No more daily blood draws
- No more painful shots
Dr. Zaher Merhi, Director of IVF Technology Research and Development, specializes in the revolutionary Needle-Free IVF protocol. New Hope Fertility Center is the first program in the world to offer Needle-Free IVF.
Failing a Conventional IVF doesn’t mean that Needle-Free IVF won’t work.
Failing an IVF cycle happens for a number of reasons.
- Age-related poor egg quality
- Poor uterine environment preventing an embryo from implanting
- Incorrect hormone levels
Some women who fail a Conventional IVF cycle will have better luck with lower or no egg stimulation protocols because these can produce higher quality eggs. It is a case by case situation and by trying more holistic treatments, pregnancy success has been achieved.
What is Needle-Free IVF?
Our Needle-Free IVF protocol stimulates a woman’s ovaries into producing multiple egg follicles through the use of oral fertility medications. This revolutionary holistic IVF protocol eliminates the fear, pain, and anxiety many patients experience with injections and blood draws. Needle-Free IVF also lowers the patient’s cost of fertility medications.
Needle-Free IVF Benefits
Through Needle-Free IVF, patients are able to administer hormone stimulation in a less-invasive manner. That’s not all. Hormone levels are measured through urine and saliva tests during a Needle-Free IVF cycle.
- No shots
- No needles
- No injections
- No blood draws
Needle-Free IVF Protocol
How is Needle-Free IVF patient-friendly?
- Improves patient safety
- Improves patient compliance with medication regimen
- Reduces possibility of error in medication administration
- Eliminates the risk of accidental needle sticks
This gentle and effective IVF protocol is designed to be more patient-friendly to women who:
- Have a fear of needles
- Have problems self-administering injectable fertility medications
- Experience bruising and discomfort due to injections
- Want a more natural and holistic treatment option
- Have PCOS

- Want to increase chance of insurance coverage for the cost of medications
Needle-Free IVF Fertility Medications
Depending on the woman’s medical needs, an oral fertility medication – typically Clomid and/or Letrozole– are prescribed to gently stimulate her ovaries into producing multiple eggs. Synarel is administered nasally for 3 days at the beginning of the cycle and then again 36 hours prior to surgical egg retrieval to trigger ovulation.
- Clomid and/or Femara to stimulate egg production
- Synarel to trigger ovulation
- Oral progesterone tablets
- Vaginal progesterone suppositories
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. This policy is perfectly suited for our new Needle-Free IVF protocol.
Pregnancy Success Rates
Our Needle-Free IVF protocol has resulted in comparable egg collection results as that of the Conventional IVF protocol. We are – on average – able to retrieve at least 10 eggs from patients who have undergone our Needle-Free IVF protocol. These results are reassuringly comparable with other IVF protocols in terms of number of eggs collected and pregnancy success rates.
