Improve Egg Quality for IVF

by Honeylee

I'm 34 yrs. old and I went to fertility clinic my doctor said my ovary is older than 40 yrs. old, she's trying to do in vitro for me. What I want to know in case it works the in vitro the baby it's going to be normal or abnormal because my ovary is older than 40?

We're been trying to get pregnant for 7yrs just want to know if there's any chance to have a baby at my age?


What your doctor means is that the ovarian response of your ovaries is that of a 40 year old women, this is called premature ovarian failure (POF). What this means is that the quality of your eggs is poor and this will make the success of IVF treatment less likely to be successful if they do not collect good eggs from your ovaries.
In many cases, the fertility specialist will be able to tell you if they can use your eggs or if you need to resort to an egg donor.

IVF babies have a higher incidence of chromosomal abnormalities and genetic disorders, that’s why a selection of the best and healthiest embryos is always done prior to embryo transfer.

It is possible to improve the health of your eggs naturally to prevent birth defects prior to IVF. Special nutrients and anti-oxidants help protect the eggs from free-radicle damage protecting the DNA structure in its integrity reducing mutations and chromosomal abnormalities.

Premature ovarian failure is the loss of normal ovarian function before the age of 40. This means that in your ovaries there are few follicles not capable of responding to the follicles stimulating hormone (FSH) during the follicular phase of your menstrual cycle. This causes high levels of FSH to be secreted by the pituitary gland in the attempt to stimulate follicle development and egg maturation each month. The result is longer than normal cycles and anuvulatory cycles when no egg is released at ovulation.

Women with premature ovarian failure are younger than 40 but have irregular cycles and premenopausal symptoms typical of women in their 40s.

The follicles still exist in the ovaries, they just don’t respond to hormonal stimulation effectively. So, some months you ovulate and some months you don’t.

If you are trying to conceive, this makes your conceptions attempts very difficult. If the follicles do not mature, ovulation stops happening altogether. If this goes on long enough, premature menopause is possible.

That’s why IVF treatments are often the solution. The problem is, if the eggs are not good, failure of IVF is also high.

There are many causes of follicle depletion that can be addressed with natural health therapies:

1. Toxicity

2. Hormonal Imbalance

3. Poor nutrition

4. Stress

5. Poor blood oxygenation in the ovarian tissue

There are many women younger than 40 that have been told by their doctors that there eggs are not healthy, or that there eggs are “old”.

Unfortunately most fertility doctors are not aware of the benefits of natural nutrients that can dramatically increase the success
rate of IVF. Yet, many scientific studies have proven how this is the case.

Please, take some time to prepare for your IVF treatment in order to improve the quality and quantity of your eggs before going for IVF. This will dramatically increase your chances of success.

Follicle growth is a very long process. Many follicles begin to develop inside the ovary, but only one, the dominant follicle will nourish the mature egg released at ovulation. This process takes about 90 days.

This is the time required by your body to release a healthy egg. This is way you need to take 3-4 months to prepare before IVF treatment if you want to improve the quality of your eggs.

How To IMprove Egg Quality For IVF

The following step-by-step natural approach is recommended for women with poor ovarian response preparing for IVF:

STEP 1: Follow a Fertility Cleanse

Follow the fertility cleanse for 2 months. This eliminates all the toxins from your body that may affect the quality of your eggs.

Unfortunately we live in a toxic world, where poisonous substances are present everywhere from our food, water and the environment. A recent study by the Center for Disease Control reported that presence of over 300 toxic chemicals in people of all ages, including babies.

STEP 2: Clean Up Your Diet

Please, make sure to eat really health by following the fertility diet. Also make sure to avoid drinking tap water as it is full of chemical compounds that affect male and female fertility. Drink purified water from reverse osmosis system.

Tap water contains by-products of drugs, heavy metals, chlorine and fluoride that affect the pituitary gland supressing ovulation.
Also, check your personal care products and avoid xenostrogens.

STEP 3: Nourish Your Eggs

Follow the Improve Egg Health Kit protocol for at least two months after you complete the fertility cleanse and continue up until the month before your IVF is scheduled.

The Improve Egg health Kit contains:

Women’s Whole Food Multivitamin

To increase egg quality and prepare for healthy implantation, your body needs prenatal multivitamins. Please note that, synthetic multivitamins won’t have the same effect.

Network Antioxidants

Network antioxidants protect the egg against free radical damage preventing DNA damage in the eggs that can cause birth defects.


L-Arginine is an amino acid that has been shown in clinical studies to increase ovarian response, endometrial receptivity, and pregnancy rates in IVF patients.


Maca promotes healthy hormonal balance and contributes to making healthier eggs.

Royal Jelly

Royal jelly is a known a fertility food which contains many nutrients, antioxidants, amino acids, minerals and nutrients needed to increase poor egg quality.

STEP 4: Improve Blood Flow To The Ovaries

Do Self-Fertility Massage regularly.

One of the best ways to increase egg quality is to increase the blood circulation to the reproductive organ, especially the ovaries. Your ovaries need blood that is high in nutrients and high in oxygen to produce healthy eggs.

I hope this puts you in the right direction of improving your egg and ovarian health.

Fertility Blessings!

Eggs depleted need donor eggs
by: Anonymous

I did the IVF test recently and the doctor told me my eggs have depleted and I need a donor egg, I have also read through your articles and am impressed please advice am in deep pain since I want my own.


Poor egg quality is a major problem in women who are over 40 and are experiencing early menopause due to many reasons. Mainly, in natural health it is possible to address cases of poor egg quality due to:

1. Toxicity
2. Lack of specific vitamins
3. Poo diet

Before trying for an egg donor you can try improving you egg quality naturally by following the OvaWise Egg Health Kit.
Consider using this kit for at least 3 months in a row to improve you egg quality naturally.

To boost your results you can do a fertility cleanse for a month and use the self-fertility massage DVD. Self fertility massage is really easy to learn and do. The importance of this technique when it comes to egg quality is that it helps stimulate blood flow to the ovaries. This improves egg quality because the ovarian arteries bring oxygenated blood and nutrients to the tissue that surrounds the ovaries. The quality of this tissue is what makes the ovaries healthy and capable of producing healthy eggs again.

Fertility Blessings!
