Embryo Banking vs. Fertility Preservation

Posted by New Hope Fertility Center

Embryo freezing is growing in popularity as more and more women look to have children later in life. By storing embryos in their prime reproductive years (35 and younger), women are able to stop their biological clock. The quality of a woman's eggs declines significantly after 35 and her chances of getting pregnant naturally is  reduced. Through embryo cryopreservation a woman can get pregnant when she is ready to have a family.

Activities To Avoid After Your Embryo Transfer

Posted by New Hope Fertility Center

Embryo transfer is the final step in an IVF Cycle. During the transfer, a catheter is placed directly into a woman’s uterus and the embryos are transferred. This is similar to a Pap smear procedure. Most fertility centers will have you remain at the center for an hour after the procedure, lying on your back to assist with the embryo attaching to the uterine lining. When home, you should rest for the remainder of the day. While this is not the same as bed rest, the goal is to remain lying down and move as little as possible.

Are Single Embryo Transfers Effective in Young Women?

Posted by New Hope Fertility Center

Traditionally, in vitro fertilization transferred multiple embryos in an attempt to improve success rates.  The theory was that the more embryos transferred, the more likely that one embryo would implant, resulting in pregnancy.  Research and improvements in fertility medicine have shown this is not the case.

EmbryoScope Technology at New Hope Fertility

Posted by NHFC



New Hope Fertility Center is happy to announce that we are currently using EmbryoScopes which have been described as a new hope for couples who want to conceive.

EmbryoScopes, approved by the FDA in 2011, are incubators used for monitoring developing embryos.

This technology is only currently available in about 15 reproduction centers around the country according to NBC news.

So why is this cutting edge technology important?

Unlike conventional monitoring methods which only capture single static observations, Embryoscopes come with a built-in camera that can be set to capture images at set intervals.

The images can be strung together to create a time-lapse video, documenting the development of the embryo over time, until it is ready for transfer (usually at the blastocyst stage).

This technology is helpful in making the best embryo selection decisions and some believe it will also contribute to higher IVF treatment success rates.

At New Hope, we are committed to your success.

IVF After 40 | Mini-IVF™ Success Story

Posted by NHFC

2015-29-1.jpg

At the age of 43, I came in a bit late to the baby making process. I, as with many New York women, was a workaholic for 20 years, and the timing never seemed right to begin having a family. I began the IVF process at a larger NY institution and did two rounds of IVF trying with my own eggs. I had no problem producing eggs, but the quality was never good. On the verge of trying a 3rd round of IVF at the same institution, the protocol was going to be the same, so my gut told me not to continue there. A friend at the wonderful RESOLVE Support Group suggested I try New Hope because of the Mini-IVF™ (customized minimal stimulation IVF protocol) process they do.
