Mini-IVF™ Success After Miscarriage

Posted by NHFC

Miscarriage is a harsh reality that every woman faces. Whether you're 25 or 41 years of age, losing a pregnancy can happen to any woman who is trying to conceive.

According to FertilityAuthority.com, there are several types of miscarriages that occur due to a variety of reasons -- from chromosomal abnormalities to undeveloped embryos.  In any case, the results are devastating.  Women who suffer miscarriages experience emotional and physical trauma, and it's understandable that deciding to try again is a difficult decision to make.

We meet many women at New Hope who come to our center hoping to conceive -- and keep -- their pregnancy.  Fortunately, our doctors have experience with treating and helping women with histories of miscarriage.  Coupled with what they learn about a patient's history, our doctors often propose using minimal stimulation techniques for those with miscarriage history in order to avoid overstimulating sensitive uterine environments.

New Hope would like to congratulate two patients who got pregnant recently after experiencing multiple miscarriages.  Both women, in their early 40s, went through more than 1 miscarriage and went forward with injection-less Mini-IVF™ treatment.  Our injection-less treatment afforded both doctor and patient with the peace of mind that the uterine environment would not be overstimulated with too much medication. Following their frozen embryo transfers -- another method used in more sensitive cases -- both patients announced positive pregnancy tests.  Congratulations to you both!

If you've experienced multiple miscarriages and still wish to conceive, don't hesitate to give us a call at 212-400-9614 or schedule a consultation.

New Hope Recap | Returning Patients

Posted by NHFC

pgd ivfWe're pleased to see a familiar face in our office these days -- our very first CGH patient, who kindly shared her original IVF success story with New Hope after the birth of her first child in 2011.

She first came to our clinic with a history of miscarriages -- one of which occurred after carrying for 18 weeks -- and turned off by aggressive protocols at other clinics. Attracted to New Hope's holistic approach to fertility care, she proceeded treatment with a Natural Cycle transfer -- the embryos collected from a few Mini-IVF™ cycles in order to increase her chances of collecting more than one healthy egg during treatment.

She opted for PGD with CGH testing in order to detect any genetic abnormalities that may be present, since she suffered from an autoimmune disorder. If genetic abnormalities exist within an embryo during IVF treatment, this can lead to miscarriage.  She eventually became pregnant and Edward was born in December of 2011.  She was the first case in which we used genetic testing to pick only the healthiest embryos for use during her minimal stimulation protocol.

Ms. CGH is back to try for a sister for Mr. Edward at the age of 44. We can't wait to help you again and add another baby to the New Hope Family!


CGH, or Comparative Genomic Hybridization, is a service we offer during treatment to make sure you’re getting the most from your cycle here at New Hope Fertility Center.

Although we’ve been offering PGD testing since our opening, we’ve partnered with Reprogenetics  to ensure we're providing the latest in embryo-testing technology.

In the past, PGD was used solely for gender selection and finding specified chromosomal abnormalities.  The current CGH testing is the most comprehensive test to detect significant genetic abnormalities in existence to date.

For more information on CGH testing, please visit us on the web to schedule a consultation.

Frozen Embryo Transfer Success Stories

Posted by NHFC

Baby and Mother (2).jpgBased on recent studies, the chance for a successful pregnancy through Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET) is comparable to fresh IVF cycle transfers. FET success has improved dramatically over the last several years. FETs are typically a Single Embryo Transfer after a woman’s body is prepared for pregnancy. Good eggs create quality embryos. Multiple embryo transfers do not increase a woman’s chances of conception – only the likelihood of a multiple pregnancy. These high quality embryos can be transferred one at a time to the mother at the time of a fresh IVF cycle – or – through future FET procedures. Single Embryo Transfers through FET also help couples build balanced families through gender selection.

IVF After 40 | Mini-IVF™ Success Story

Posted by NHFC


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.

Unexplained Infertility | IVF Success Stories

Posted by NHFC

Many women and couples we treat come to New Hope with what physicians call idiopathic infertility.  Also known as unexplained infertility,  couples can get a complete infertility examination -- from FSH tests to sperm count tests, only to be told there is no tangible explanation as to why they are having difficulty conceiving.

While an undeniably frustrating situation, there is an upside to unexplained infertility.  Simply stated, being diagnosed with unexplained infertility means you've ruled out a majority of the serious stuff.  Conditions like PCOS or endometriosis, for instance, cause issues other than infertility that disrupt the lives of many women due to their symptoms, including hormone imbalances or painful periods.

If you're struggling with unexplained infertility, you're not alone.  According to RESOLVE, "one in five couples will experience unexplained infertility despite completing a full infertility work-up." Besides the physical toll this unexplained diagnosis entails -- infertility -- it also takes an emotional toll.  Many women and men hide their shame and think it must be their fault somehow, the "real" problem yet to show itself and tell them why they really can't get pregnant.

Despite its exhausting nature, you can get pregnant if you've been handed a diagnosis of unexplained infertility.  At New Hope, our fertility specialists have helped several women and couples who can't get pregnant and don't know why.  Just recently, we helped a 43-year-old get pregnant who, other than having a high FSH level, was extremely healthy and having trouble conceiving on her own.  Considering her healthy status, her doctor understood she did not need an aggressive approach to IVF that would require medications and injections, so they chose to proceed with Natural Cycle IVF.  Using the protocol's simple monitoring techniques, a healthy egg was retrieved, fertilized, and transferred, and she got pregnant.

If you're struggling with unexplained infertility, don't give up.  There's still hope -- so give us a call!
