It is our strict policy to never turn away women with high FSH levels. Why is this important? Unlike other fertility clinics who refuse to treat women having low egg production due to high FSH levels, we put the patient’s medical needs first.
Bottom Line: Every patient is unique and deserves to be treated as an individual. Innovative IVF protocols and first-class technology are offered to all women regardless of their FSH level.
Follicle Stimulating Hormones (FSH) Explained
When a woman’s ovaries have difficulty producing mature eggs naturally, her Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FHS) level increases. The increase is caused by the brain releasing a hormone from the FSH gland trying to get her body to produce more eggs.
- Normal FSH level = under 10
- Abnormal FSH level = over 25
- Borderline FSH level = between 10 and 25
High FSH levels are indicative of low egg production. Although a woman’s chances of pregnancy decrease because of the natural aging process and raising FSH level – she still can achieve a pregnancy as long as she is ovulating. This is why a woman is never turned away by the fertility specialists at New Hope Fertility Center merely because of her age or FSH level.
The One Good Egg Policy
When multiple eggs are produced, many are not suitable for fertilization in vitro. A heavy regimen of ovarian hyperstimulation hormone medications are very hard on a woman – physically and financially. It’s an evidence-based policy. One healthy, quality egg is capable of achieving IVF pregnancy success for those difficult patients who have been turned away by other fertility clinics.
Our One Good Egg Policy is:
It can’t be emphasize enough: We do not boost our high IVF pregnancy success data results by rejecting patients based on strict criteria. Taking on very difficult patients and helping them overcome their infertility encompasses the overall goal of our One Good Egg policy. Here, we are committed to treating all patients suffering from infertility – regardless of their diagnosed difficulty. Know this: To get pregnant successfully through IVF, only one good egg and one healthy sperm is needed.
Candidates for Our One Good Egg Policy
Women diagnosed as difficult or hopelessly infertile are welcome at New Hope Fertility Center. The best part: Because of our One Good Egg Policy, we happily accept IVF patients other fertility doctors decline to treat.
Our revolutionary Mini-IVF™ has been endorsed by Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART). According to her medical needs, a woman 38 or younger is prescribed a minimal amount of fertility medication to produce between six to eight quality eggs per fresh Mini-IVF™ cycle. This revolutionary holistic alternative approach is focused on a gentle stimulation protocol.
Single Embryo Transfer (SET)
We promote the practice of Single Embryo Transfer (SET). Through a SET protocol, a woman’s health risks associated with the potential of multiple births is eliminated. Cryopreservation of surplus embryos for future FET procedures is encouraged by the fertility specialists at New Hope Fertility Center – in lieu of repeated, expensive fresh IVF cycles.
Pregnancy Success With Natural Cycle IVF™
Another holistic IVF protocol that does not require any hyperstimulating fertility medications to achieve a viable pregnancy: Natural Cycle IVF™. This holistic IVF protocol is designed to enhance a woman’s natural egg production. Look: It only takes one good egg fertilized with healthy sperm to become pregnant and have a baby.
