Vaping can risk a woman’s fertility because nicotine and flavorings in e-cigarettes reduce the quality of the egg a woman naturally produces each month. Poor quality eggs make it difficult to conceive or maintain a healthy pregnancy. What else? The nicotine and chemicals in e-cigarettes can inhibit a fertilized egg (embryo) from implanting in a woman’s uterus – Journal of the Endocrine Society, Study by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, September 2019. According to this study, vaping while pregnant can also trigger developmental disabilities in babies lasting a lifetime. Bottom Line: The fertility of females is drastically impaired by e-cigarettes.
One Good Egg Policy
Customized fertility treatment is the best. It only takes one good egg and one healthy sperm to make a baby. Our focus is to help you produce a small quantity of good quality eggs during a fresh IVF cycle. Not a high quantity of eggs that may or may not be of good quality.

Challenging Patients Welcome
We don’t refuse those patients diagnosed as a challenging case. At New Hope Fertility Center, we welcome patients rejected by other fertility specialists because they are difficult and may cause a decline in pregnancy success stats.
- 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
