The latest scientific research is changing the way we think about fertility. Egg quality is emerging as the single most important cause of age-related infertility, recurrent miscarriage, and failed IVF cycles. Poor egg quality is also a common obstacle for women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and unexplained infertility.
Whether you are trying to conceive naturally or through IVF, the quality of your eggs will have a powerful impact on how long it takes you to get pregnant and whether you face an increased risk of miscarriage.
Based on a comprehensive investigation of a vast array of scientific research, this book reveals a groundbreaking new approach for improving egg quality and fertility.
With a concrete strategy that includes minimizing exposure to toxins such as BPA and phthalates, choosing the right vitamins and supplements to safeguard developing eggs, and harnessing nutritional advice shown to boost IVF success rates, this book offers practical solutions that will help you get pregnant faster and deliver a healthy baby.
