How To Boost Your Egg Quality In 90 Days




With PCOS, the day you ovulate isn’t always very predictable and longer cycles make the whole waiting game just that much longer! So, it only makes sense that one of the first things we often focus on is getting our cycles regular, either naturally or by taking medications such as clomid, letrozole, and femara.  Although these medications can help the follicles to grow and mature by increasing FSH levels, I also wanted to do everything I could during fertility treatments to make sure that my eggs were as healthy as possible!   


Why is egg health so crucial to fertility?


How healthy your eggs are can influence whether or not fertilization takes place, whether or not implantation happens, and how viable the pregnancy is.1 Simple answer, it is very important.  


So what factors even determine egg quality?


It used to believe that the only factor that influences egg quality was a woman’s age. Although a female’s age is important to consider2, there are other factors to look at as well.  These things include, but aren’t limited to, environmental factors, hormones in the food we eat, and stress.3   


Preparing for Ovulation (3 months in advance):


An egg goes through a 90-day cycle to prepare for ovulation4- something I didn’t know at the beginning of my infertility journey and something I wish I had known sooner!  Everything we do during this time, everything you’re doing right now whether healthy or unhealthy, is influencing the maturation process of an egg and ovulation that takes place three months from now.  Kind of crazy to think about, especially when we’re so used to looking at trying to conceive as a month-to-month thing!
So, here are a few things we can do about it:


  1. Ensure Blood Flow and Proper Oxygenation


We want to make sure that our bodies are able to have proper oxygen and rich blood flow to the ovaries to help with egg quality.  In order to do this, make sure you are:
  • Drinking at least 64 oz. of pure water each day.  Dehydration causes thick blood, and decreases circulation in your body among other problems.  
  • Be active! Find something you enjoy doing so you’re more likely to do it.  Exercise is a great way to increase blood flow and help bring oxygen to the blood.


  1. Hormonal Balance
Balancing hormones is SO important for egg quality, and many of us with PCOS have a really hard time with this! To help we can:
  • Decrease the stress in our lives
  • Follow a fertility diet  (Jill Blakeway provides a lot of useful information on lifestyle changes and eating for fertility in her book Making Babies).  


  1. Nutrition
Everything we eat impacts egg quality either positively or negatively.  So make healthy choices.  Here are some things that are recommended as “top foods for egg health”:
  • Royal Jelly
  • Maca
  • FertiliGreens
  • Broccoli
  • Berries
  • Dark leafy vegetables
  • Halibut
  • Salmon
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Sesame seeds
  • Turmeric
  • Ginger


    Stay away from:
  • Cigarettes
  • Caffeine
  • Alcohol
  • Sugar
  • Non-organic meats and dairy
  • Soda
  • Low fat diet
  • Processed foods
  • Trans Fats
  • GMO foods


  1. Take a multivitamin/ your prenatal vitamin! 4
Provide your body with the proper nutrients it needs.

These are just a few of the things I found helpful. For me, I found that moderation was KEY.
