It depends on what your doctor says.  If he/she feels your eggs are not healthy enough to do IVF or IUI then they may ask you to get  an egg donor.


Many women who are having trouble getting pregnant have been told by their doctors that there eggs are not healthy, or that there eggs are “old”. The options usually given to these women include using an egg donor, IVF, or adoption. But what most women don’t know, is that there are other natural, safer, and many times, more effective options available.

Did you know that you can impact the health of your eggs? During the cycle of an eggs life there is a window of opportunity, a period of time when certain factors can affect the health of your eggs that are preparing for ovulation.

The cycle of an egg in preparation for ovulation is around 90 days.

During the 90 day period before an egg is ovulated, the eggs are effected by:

  • Blood Flow
  • Proper oxygenation
  • Hormonal Balance
  • Nutritional intake
  • Stress

    These are the factors you’ll want to focus on when increasing the health of your eggs.

    Because you have not said what your age is it is hard to say whether working toward increasing your egg health naturally may be a good option for you.  Natural remedies take time 3-6 months to be effective.
