NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / September 19, 2022 / Groundbreaking new technology offers women nearing, experiencing, or even past menopause hope of achieving pregnancy with their own eggs. Rejuvenating Fertility Center (RFC), based in New York and Connecticut, offers not only local but worldwide fertility treatments to patients. The clinic is pleased to announce that, after pioneering a new service in the northeast, it now offers platelet-rich plasma (PRP) ovarian rejuvenation as a fertility treatment option.
PRP therapy has been seen in the news and social media frequently; as it pertains to skin care and facial rejuvenation, it has earned itself the nickname “the vampire facial”. Favored by a growing number of celebrities and social personalities, PRP therapy as facial rejuvenation has been featured in major media outlets such as Allure and Cosmopolitan but it is now known to work in reproductive health.
This new technology has multiple benefits. PRP therapy is a cutting-edge treatment which utilizes the body’s own plasma to accelerate healing at the injection site. As it pertains to fertility, PRP ovarian rejuvenation features a PRP injection given vaginally into the ovaries, guided by ultrasound. PRP therapy is best used alongside more non-traditional in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatments. This new therapy is capable of improving egg quantity and quality. Recent studies have shown that PRP can increase blood AMH levels indicating improvement in ovarian reserve. It also, when given inside the uterus, can improve implantation and lower the chances of a miscarriage.
RFC staff has disclosed that the typical patient for this new treatment is one who has experienced multiple failed IVF treatments. This technology is a vital breakthrough for women who have suffered failed embryo formation, have poor egg or embryo quality, have recurrent implantation failure, as it offers new hope for these women to become pregnant and experience live birth.
PRP therapy has helped women with diminished ovarian reserve, premature ovarian insufficiency (POI), and even early menopause achieve pregnancy using their own eggs. This is vital to the fertility industry, as it is seeing record numbers of older women attempting to become pregnant who are told that they need donor eggs. The number of pregnancies in women over 35 is rising: according to the National Women’s Health Network, 1 in 6 pregnant women in the US in 2019 were over 35.
Thus, there is an increasing need for more effective and diverse fertility treatments. Women are marrying later or not marrying at all, choosing to focus on establishing a career prior to considering childbirth. As most women face declining fertility after 35, novel treatments such as PRP therapy are in high demand. The fertility specialists at RFC are headed by Dr. Zaher Merhi, MD, a board-certified reproductive endocrinologist. He is also the founder and medical director of Rejuvenating Fertility Center, Manhattan and Connecticut’s first IVF Center to utilize non-conventional fertility methods.
“We promote PRP therapy,” says Dr. Merhi, “because it has succeeded where other treatments fail. Before PRP, these patients didn’t have many options if IVF failed, besides donor eggs. Now there’s new hope that they can have babies with their own eggs.”
“Many of our patients prefer to use their own eggs,” Dr. Merhi discloses. “PRP therapy allows this because it stimulates the already existing ovarian stem cells to become new younger eggs and it awakens the dormant eggs that every woman has. It’s even been known to restore the menstrual cycle.” He says that, for women with recurrent miscarriages and implantation failure in IVF, PRP therapy can lead to successful pregnancy where other treatments fail because it creates a thicker endometrial lining, which is more likely to receive the fertilized egg and also provides more nourishment for the growing embryo.
“This new therapy is exciting for the industry,” Dr. Merhi says, “because not only can it allow successful pregnancy, but it also helps provide a more nurturing environment for the embryo to become a healthy baby.” This is why PRP is starting to be offered to hopeful mothers who have a thin endometrial lining, and who have a history of failed embryo transfers.
Dr. Merhi worked in the fertility field for two decades before founding Rejuvenating Fertility Center (RFC). His training and faculty appointments include Albert Einstein College of Medicine, NYU School of Medicine, and the University of Vermont. Along with his work at RFC, Dr. Merhi is currently a Professor at SUNY Downstate Health Sciences University and Maimonides Medical Center, and also serves as Director of the Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility Fellowship program. His three American board certifications include OB/GYN, Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, and High-Complexity Laboratory Director (HCLD).
Dr. Merhi has fine-tuned his research skills in the area of Ovarian Reserve (low AMH or high FSH), ovarian rejuvenation, gentle stimulation IVF, natural IVF, and IVF without injectables to create ten revolutionary types of IVF, some of which are patented. He has studied the latest technology for treatments such as Ozone Sauna therapy, which has the potential to improve egg quality in patients presenting with endometriosis, immune disorders, and PCOS. Dr. Merhi was named TOP OB/GYN Doctor in 2019, 2020, and 2021 and TOP Reproductive Endocrinologist and Infertility specialist by New York Magazine, and has received two Star Awards from the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM). Dr. Merhi has published over 100 manuscripts and continues to present his new research at conferences around the world.
Dr. Merhi’s primary goal is to continue his research into fertility and continually provide the latest technology to his patients. This is why Dr. Merhi believes in PRP therapy: he has spent years acquiring knowledge, honing his research, and developing the most successful fertility treatments, and he feels that PRP therapy is an important new development that will allow women who have experienced failure to finally have babies.
“Every hopeful mother deserves the chance to become pregnant with her own eggs,” says Dr. Merhi. “At RFC, we pioneer the latest technology along with natural and organic options to make that dream come true for our patients without the physical and financial pains.”
Rejuvenating Fertility Clinic is the first IVF Center in the Northeast to offer non-conventional, holistic, and organic fertility methods. The clinic is currently accepting patients from all over the world via telemedicine and offers a variety of IVF options, egg donation and surrogacy as well as other fertility treatments such as PRP ovarian rejuvenation.
