Is it All About The Egg?

You probably knew that you were born with your eggs and that you naturally loose a number as you age. However the follicles sit in hibernation until around 100 days prior to ovulation. That means that the 100 days before the month you conceive is critical in the quality of your eggs.This is because most chromosomal abnormalities happen just before ovulation. Chromosomal abnormalities don’t accumulate slowly over the many years waiting, but happen when they’re exposed to the blood stream and beginning to mature.  

In the latest “Finding Fertility” podcast, FGHG naturopath Gina Fox and acupuncturist Joanne Sharkey discuss the crucial keys to improving egg quality and boosting your chance of conception.
