"Nancy Kerrigan Realized You Can't 'Train' Your Way to a Pregnancy"
That headline caught my eye as it made its way 'round the fertility forums these past few days.
As a former Olympian in figure skating, she knows a thing or two about training.
So let's get this issue cleared up.
Right the eff now.
Many people, including doctors, think that your fertility can't be changed by anything you do. It is what it is. It's fixed.
If you've been reading my emails for awhile, you know how I feel about this.
It's a load of crap. Pure, udder bullshyt.
There is nothing static about the body. The only constant about your body is that it's changing at any given moment in time. That includes your eggs.
The environment your eggs are in affects what they're going to do. Whether they're going to go whimpering into the sunset of menopause or come charging back from hibernation.
My patient who came to me after a failed IVF cycle can attest to that. 17 eggs retrieved, 8 fertilized, 3 embryos at Day 3 but none at Day 5 for transfer.
After 5 months with my guidance, she had 21 eggs retrieved, 20 fertilized, 16 embryos at Day 3, and 8 at Day 5.
Yes, her IVF protocol changed so that was part of the reason.
But I believe she made lifestyle changes that contributed to her massive improvement.
It doesn't matter if you've been diagnosed with advanced maternal age, poor egg quality, low ovarian reserve, low AMH, high FSH, etc.
No matter your age, your egg quality CAN change.
