Thinking about trying to conceive? Good egg quality sets the foundation! Women often ask about “at home remedy” for improving egg quality and increasing chance of conceiving.

How do you improve your egg quality? Here are 5 easy tips for increased success

What affects egg quality?

Women are born with all the eggs they will ever have. Egg quality refers to if an egg is genetically normal or abnormal. Genetically abnormal eggs are not able to do what they are supposed to do, in this case, making baby. So, egg quality is a black-and-white thing, either genetically normal or abnormal.

Because DNA damage is inevitable in older eggs, the biggest factor affecting egg quality is age. As a woman gets older, a higher percentage of her eggs become genetically abnormal. And once an egg turned abnormal, there is no way to reverse it back. So, there is no way to improve egg quality if the egg is already bad. But we can slow down the rate our eggs turn bad.

What can you do?

  1. Get your hormones in balance

It is common to have imbalanced hormone levels, caused by environmental factors, stress, lifestyle, and unnatural diet. Hormones regulate our cycle. They control our period, ovulation, egg implantation, embryo development, and many other things. Imbalanced hormone levels lower our chance of conceiving, in which case an ovulation may not occur, and pathological condition might develop.

  1. Reduce stress

If you have been trying to conceive for a while, you must have heard the advice of “just relax” many times. Stress doesn’t cause infertility, but it may let our eggs not performing under an optimal status. Reducing stress itself could be stressful. Finding what works for you is the most important. Take a meditation or light impact exercise, such as Yoga, a short walk or just hang out with friends, think about what makes you feel good. Then give them a try and find your own routine.

  1. Eat balanced food

Consider switching to a healthier diet might improve your overall health, helping your eggs to maintain in good quality. Avoid trans-fat, processed foods, excessive fat, sugar, or salt. Limit soda intake, and stay away from alcohol, caffeine, and nicotine, which are toxic to eggs, leading to fast aging of reproductive age. Try natural foods that are full of vitamin, fiber, and protein, such as lean meet, vegetable, fruits, and whole grains.

  1. Mild exercise

Low impact exercise helps fertility. Oxygenation level of the ovary is important to maintain good egg quality. Exercise such as Yoga is a relaxing and healthy way to improve blood flow. Poses such as child’s pose, lotus pose, and seated forward bend especially increase the blood flow and benefit fertility.

Blood flow is also very correlated with water intake. Drink enough water to ensure there are constant blood flow in your body.

  1. Control body mass index (BMI)

Obesity is directly linked with egg quality and fertility. It alternates mitochondrial function, lowering fertility level. It changes hormone level, disrupting ovulation. A BMI of 18.5-24.9 is considered healthy and good for pregnancy.
