"The next time someone starts listing all the reasons an idea won't work or can't happen, ask them to give three reasons it can." - Simon Sinek
Made me think of the countless times that I've heard "My doctors told me I'm too old to get pregnant with my own eggs."
That's the thud of my head banging against the wall.
But before it cracks open, spilling my brains like an egg on a hot pan, let me give you the 3 reasons why you CAN get pregnant even if you're in your 40s or been diagnosed with poor egg quality or low ovarian reserve.
- Your egg quality CAN be improved. It is NOT fixed. You're born with all the eggs you have but they stop developing at birth and go into stasis (kinda like a hibernation). Puberty jump-starts a few of them every month to prepare for ovulation. Only one will make it. THAT'S your window of opportunity.
- Your egg quality is not based on your chronological age i.e. how many years you've wandered this earth. Rather it's a function of your biological age. You've seen yourself how people of the same age have different levels of fitness and vitality. The healthier you are (in other words, the more kick assimus you are), the longer your eggs can do their jobs - that is, fertilize, implant, and grow a healthy baby.
- Your lifestyle choices determine your fertility, NOT your genetics. Our genetics is only the blueprint. How those instructions are read is almost entirely up to you and the choices you make.
Our bodies have an innate wisdom to heal itself.
It WANTS to procreate - a basic biological function to ensure the survival of our species. In order to that, it needs the right conditions.
And those conditions are revealed in my Fertility Top10... http://zenfertility.com/top10
