Animal Protein To Increase Fertility In Vegetarians
Hi there! Your site is wonderful! I am lucky to have stumbled upon it.
I live in Los Angeles and am being treated by one of the best fertility docs and also acupuncturist around. I have a four year old son who was created naturally :-)
My ovarian reserve is low (FSH 16 one month) and I am 41 years old (I would like to think a "young" 41 in every other way except my ovarian reserve :-) Usually I have 6 - 9 follicles that can be seen on day 2 of my cycle (one failed IVF three months ago with 7 eggs retrieved, 4 fertilized). But these last two months with tons of stress (we are moving to NYC - not happy about that) she has only seen 2 eggs on my day two (this last cycle ended up it a very early miscarriage).
I have been a hard core vegetarian for 24 years. Recently I have had three nutritionist/acupuncturists tell me that I need to start eating land animals again. What are your thoughts on this? The lady today told me that if I started eating animal protein today I could be pregnant in 90 days..... ????!!!!!
I do not think I can do it, but do you think it is true?
I just question why my reserve would be low when I am so healthy otherwise. YES, I have tons of stress... We are working on that little aspect :-) But could there be some truth to this need for animal protein?
Thank you for your time!
