We offer one of the very best treatments and at the same time, we will listen to your needs and concerns and answer your questions each step of the way. We share a common goal – to make parenthood a reality.
Some facts about us we would like you to know:
We provide dedicated ‘home’ for your precious little one to grow
During an IVF procedure, embryos spend majority of their time within the confines of a laboratory incubator. The function of an incubator is to provide a stable and appropriate culture environment to optmize embryo development and clinical outcomes.At Newlife@PHKL, we dedicated one chamber for each of our patient’s embryo. This is to ensure undisturbed culture environment for optimum embryo growth. The concept of ‘one patient one chamber’ also helps to avoid the possibility of embryo mix up.
We use vitrification techinique to freeze your embryos for better post thaw survival
As not more than three embryos will be transferred to achieve pregnancy, the remaining embryos will be frozen and stored for future IVF treatment. At Newlife@PHKL, we are using the modern technique of embryo freezing, known as fast freezing or vitrification. This technique has been proven to be significantly higher survival rate post thaw compare to the conventional slow freezing technique.
Elective single embryo transfer – way to go
At Newlife@PHKL, we care not only our pregnancy success, but also the health of the mother. The single greatest health risk for women conceiving following fertility treatment is a multiple pregnancy. The risk can be reduced by transferring fewer embryos and hence we are working towards a policy of elective single embryo transfer policy. We are currently transferring single embryo in more than 40% of our cases. Please read more about complications of multiple pregnancy from ‘Risk of Fertility Treatment’ (website link).

Our success rate
Success includes safety and happy outcome for you and your baby.
Patient safety remains our topmost priority. Our fertility specialist helps you make informed decision after taking into account your medical concerns and discussing with you any potential health risks that may apply to your particular case.
Happy outcome is achieved by high pregnancy rate which is a combination of excellent clinical management and an excellent laboratory.
Our fertilization rate
The concept ‘it is always better to get more embryos than less!’ – a vital process where the egg needs to be fertilized by sperm before it can develop into an embryo. Hence if you could optimise the utilisation of the retrieved eggs into embryos this would increase the number of IVF attempts, thus, improving your chances of getting pregnant. At Newlife@PHKL, our accumulative fertilization rate from 2013 until 2015 was 80.68% regardless of female and male infertility factors.

Now the next question would be – of all the couples with extended blastocyst culture, how many of them would eventually end up with blastocyst transfer? As only good quality embryo will grow into blastocyst, chances of failure that extended blastocyst culture could happen maybe due to several factors. Below is our data collected from year 2013 to 2015. Based on 100% couples with extended blastocyst culture, 90.85% eventually obtained blastocyst and proceeded with blastocyst transfer, while 9.15% were with failed extended blastocyst culture.

Our pregnancy rate
It is important to know the success rates of clinics that you are considering. Keep in mind that a clinic’s success depends on many factors and variables, some clinics, on the other hand, may have high success rates of above standard level for the treatment due to usage of donated sperm or egg for treatment as donated sperm or egg are thoroughly screened and of a high quality.
Below is our data for pregnancy rates compiled from year 2013 to 2015. You may note that there is a linear decline in pregnancy rate as the maternal age increases. Unlike male partner, who has their sperm regeneration cycle of approximately 72 days, women are born with all the eggs they will ever have in their whole lifetime. As a woman’s age increases, the eggs age with her, diminishing in quality and quantity. They are less likely to divide properly, causing abnormality in chromosome structure and number (increases or decreases). Hence, a female age plays a crucial role in determining the success of a fertility treatment. Younger age group demonstrates a higher pregnancy rate of above 50%.
