One of the most frequent questions we receive from our patients trying to conceive is how can they improve their egg quality. An internet search will indicate many solutions: vitamin supplements, herbal concoctions, new techniques such as ovarian rejuvenation and PRP treatments. But really, do any of these solutions work? What should be the steps followed to improve egg quality?
Egg freezing is becoming very popular and in the media there are often news articles about it. It is usually recommended in cases where a woman wants to delay becoming a mother (career, studies or no suitable partner), to preserve her fertility prior to therapies which are detrimental to the ovaries (chemotherapy, radiotherapy) and prior to radical gynecological procedures. But do you really know all the facts about egg freezing?
One of the most frequent findings in women with infertility problems is a diminished ovarian reserve, hence a low response to treatment and therefore a small number of egg production when stimulation medications are used.
