Women are now having children at an older age than ever before.
Dr. Kelly discusses the 5 markers that can be used to estimate egg reserve and egg quality.
N-Acetyl cysteine is one of the most beneficial nutrients for ovary health. It improves insulin sensitivity and glutathione levels. This study really broke it down by looking at women going through IVF and compared outcomes of those using NAC, to placebo, to Metformin, and to a combination of NAC and Metformin.
Glutathione is arguably the most important antioxidant in our bodies. It protects the ovaries from damage, for women who are in their later reproductive years, and also for women with PCOS. Learn more about how to increase the levels of this important antioxidant in your ovaries to improve fertility, ovulation and overall health.
Androgens such as testosterone and DHEA are important markers of egg quality. In women with diminished ovarian reserve we often see low levels of these hormones. A recent study outlined the reponse during IVF of women with poor egg quality or diminished ovarian reserve, with respect to their levels of testosterone.
