Enjoy activities and moving your body for at least 30 minutes every day. Maybe think of what you used to enjoy as a child. Was that walking along a beach or through nature or skipping around the corner of your house because everything in the world was new and fascinating. Use your body and your senses at the same time.
This is one of the most common questions patients face when they consider the use of donor eggs to achieve a pregnancy.

The implantation, growth and development of an embryo leading to the birth of a live child, is a complex process dependent upon the Genetics and Environment.
Current literature confirms that in couples trying to conceive where the male age is over 45 years, is associated with lower implantion rates leading to a decrease in live birth rates.
This is a very commonly asked question and today is dealt with under the heading of Epigenetics. Nature versus Nurture or Genetics versus Environment.

Adjunct or adjuvant therapy is another treatment used together with the primary treatment. Its purpose is to assist the primary treatment and in the case of IVF improve success rates.
Disease processes, ageing and lifestyle issues can affect sperm quality, leading to decreased fertility. The maturation process for sperm takes at least 3 months so any form of corrective action will take 3 months to be effective.
