What You Can Do to Improve Your Egg Quality

What You Can Do to Improve Your Egg Quality

Your quality of egg determines whether you can conceive or not. Once you are in your
30s, the quality of your eggs starts depleting. If you are trying to conceive and want to
ensure that your eggs are healthy or not, there are plenty of ways to determine that.
Want to know the secrets? Then let’s dive in:

Manage your stress levels

If your eggs are not developing well, stress might be a factor. Stress results in a
hormonal imbalance that impacts your egg’s health. Irregularity in the flow of hormones
throws your fertility cycle off balance.
And if that happens then ovulation may not occur. While we agree that in today’s
lifestyle, it’s almost impossible to avoid stress but take steps to lower its impact. Try
yoga, meditation, exercise - see what works for you.

Check your diet

A wholesome and balanced diet helps improve your chances of fertility. This works
unless you have to avoid certain groups of food for any medical issue. Whole grains,
fruits and vegetables (especially green leafy ones), dairy products, and lean meat are
rich in vitamins and antioxidants.
These food items help maintain the overall functions of your body. Avoid processed
food, alcohol, and food containing trans fat and sugar. These negatively impact your egg

Try supplements for boosting egg health

Oocyte and mitochondrial health are important for fertility. Supplements containing
coQ10 and N-acetyl- cysteine (NAC) can impact the oocyte health and improve its
functions. Consult IVF specialists to learn more about fertility supplements.

Improve oxygenation and blood flow

A good flow of blood is essential for a healthy egg. There are several things that you can
do to improve your blood flow and oxygenation process such as:

  • Keep yourself hydrated. Try to drink at least 8 glasses of water every day
  • Exercise. You may hit the gym or try activities such as hiking, yoga, running and
  • Get abdominal massages.
IVF Success rate with donor eggs

IVF specialists can help you determine whether your ovarian reserve has started to
diminish or not. They do a series of tests to find out your egg quality and when you are
ready to get pregnant. If you want to consult IVF specialists or want to learn more about
