Many women who are battling with infertility have been told by their doctors that their eggs are “old,” or they have low ovarian reserve and poor quality eggs. The options given to these women often include IVF, using an egg donor or adoption.
We know aging has an impact on the health of the ovary and eggs. Good egg quality is crucial to the success of fertilization and implantation as well as the viability of a pregnancy.
But what most women don’t know is that age is not the only factor, there are other things you can do to help support the health of the ovaries and eggs, but it must be done for at least 90 days, or 3 menstrual cycles to have an impact.
The cycle of an egg in preparation for ovulation is around 90 days. This is also the window of opportunity when certain factors can help optimize the ovarian environment, protect the eggs you currently have and improve their quality. The combination use of acupuncture, diet, herbs, supplements, and increased circulation to the reproductive system is highly useful to help achieve this goal by significantly improve the following:
- Blood flow to the ovaries
- Proper oxygenation in the whole body
- Hormonal balance
- Stress relief
