Do you know your AMH and FSH levels?

My best friend is thirty-nine and is still postponing having a baby. We have discussed all kinds of fertility topics for years – from egg freezing, to low ovarian reserve, tracking ovulation etc., and still she would not even go to a doctor to find out about her AMH or FSH. “What if it’s bad?” she says. “Then I will just start panicking and will feel bad for not having frozen any eggs before.” So my best friend prefers not to know. Don’t be like her, because […]

How to find out how many eggs you have left? What a fertility test should include

What is fertility testing? In reality, fertility of a women is a continuum and not something that categorizes well. A certain value from a blood test can cause feelings of panic by placing you in a particular category (“low responder”! “high FSH”! “diminished ovarian reserve”!) whereas in reality there is very little difference in fertility potential between you and someone belonging to the neigboring category (“normal ovarian reserve”, “normal fertility” etc.). As I keep writing all over the […]

PQQ (Pyrroloquinoline quinone) for egg health? Don’t make the lab out of your body!

Some months ago I was asked for the first time about using PQQ (Pyrroloquinoline quinone) to improve egg quality. I was not too surprised, as women often come to me long lists of supplements which they take in hope of improving egg quality and often my consulting work boils down to reducing long lists to include only the supplements which work, in the dosages which were proven in the clinical trials to […]

    Five simple lifestyle interventions which will protect your fertility and egg health

Five simple lifestyle interventions which will protect your fertility and egg health

If I had to pick five lifestyle interventions in terms of being simple to implement and bringing immediate and measurable benefits to women over 35 who are trying to get pregnant, these would be: 1. Stop smoking. Smokers are 30 percent less fertile than non-smokers, and three times more likely to take more than a year to get pregnant. 2. Bring your BMI to the level recommended for your age. Being overweight reduces […]

What is the value of a human egg? How much would you pay to your egg donor?

Thousands of babies are being born each year as a result of egg donation. In 2013, over 9,500 babies were born thanks to donated eggs. Fifteen years ago (something like middle age of reproductive medicine), egg donation was more a method then a business. At that time, ASRM (American Society for Reproductive Medicine), the primary organization for physicians and researchers in reproductive medicine) suggested $5,000 per donation cycle as a generally accepted limit, and that payments over $10,000 were […]
