    Obesity and IVF Outcomes

    There is gathering evidence that introducing healthy lifestyle measures such as regular exercise and a healthy diet can markedly improve IVF outcomes. In one study, obese women who exercised regularly had an IVF success rate over three-fold higher than obese women who were sedentary. Dr. Meldrum also suggested that obesity should be a very strong, if not an absolute indication, for single embryo transfer. Both multiple pregnancy and obesity markedly increase premature delivery.

    Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) - Recharging the Ageing Oocyte’s Batteries

    As the egg matures, it grows enormously in size and the number of mitochondria (the tiny batteries supplying energy) markedly increases so that each cell of the embryo will have enough until the blastocyst stage when they again start to replicate. With age, these tiny batteries start to run low on power, resulting in less energy being available for these critical functions.
