What REALLY happens when egg fuses with sperm cell

Honestly, I never really wondered what exactly happens in a moment when egg and sperm unite. I assumed, science would know all about it; for such an important event one would expect tons of literature describing every millisecond of it, right? Or at least a handful of studies demonstrating what happens in the moment of creation, a moment that each and every one of us went through? A few weeks ago, a friend of mine, an artist, called. She needed help for her new project and the question she had was: What exactly […]

Which CoQ10 is best for fertility: Ubiquinol or Ubiquinone?

Some weeks ago I received one of the best comments on my entire blog (thank you Iva Stankovic!). This is what Iva asked me: Dear Darja, first of all, I liked very much your book about improving egg quality in women over 35, it’s informative and motivational, thank you for writing it!

Alcohol and making babies – too many false alarms?

Alcohol exposure in pregnancy carries risks, sure. It has been known for decades that alcohol use while trying to conceive and later in pregnancy can lead to a variety of effects on physical, mental and behavioral development of babies. However, how much alcohol at what time of pregnancy causes which defects in babies is currently still mostly unknown. Even less evidence is available on potential harm of alcohol during the time before conception, and it looks pretty certain that there […]

Fertility bloodwork: 7 hormones which are most important for fertility

Then I say: all right, but could you please send me your recent bloodwork?
