No FSH Restrictions
When ovaries have difficulty producing mature eggs, the brain releases a hormone from the pituitary gland called the Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH), which stimulates the ovaries and encourages the body to produce more eggs. For a woman in her prime reproductive years, a normal FSH level is typically under 10, while an abnormal level is considered to be anything above 25. Measurements between 10 and 25 are generally classified as borderline. Because higher FSH levels correlate with lower egg production, many fertility clinics turn away women with high FSH levels. Although the probability for pregnancy decreases as FSH and age increase, we understand the possibility of pregnancy still exists as long as a woman is still ovulating. The patient comes first at New Hope. We know you are all unique individuals so we use innovative protocols and technology to offer the best care to all women regardless of their FSH level.
Through techniques such as Mini-IVF™ and Natural Cycle IVF, we are able to focus more on the quality of eggs rather than the quantity of eggs. Numerous women have become pregnant as a result of our customized fertility care at New Hope. Many of these women were turned away and repeatedly told they could never conceive by other fertility centers. With history as our guide, we firmly believe that it only takes one good egg.
