This is what Iva asked me: Dear Darja, first of all, I liked very much your book about improving egg quality in women over 35, it's informative and motivational, thank you for writing it! As you may know, there is another book on the same topic available Amazon [...]

PQQ (Pyrroloquinoline quinone) for egg health? Don't make the lab out of your body! Image courtesy: jk1991at FreeDigitalPhotos.net Some months ago I was asked for the first time about using PQQ (Pyrroloquinoline quinone) to improve egg quality. I was not too surprised, as women often come to me long lists of supplements which they take in hope of improving egg quality and often my consulting work boils down to reducing long lists to [...]

What factors affect fertility and eggs as women get older?

What factors affect fertility and eggs as women get older? Women put off becoming mothers because they're focused on their careers, working toward advanced degrees, or travelling the world. Or at least that's what the mass media say. I don't think so. Most women over 35 actually hide behind these issues as long as they can because that's what helps them avoid confronting the real #1 problem.

How to trust in your eggs and get pregnant naturally after 35

How to trust in your eggs and get pregnant naturally after 35 Image courtesy: stuart miles at FreeDigitalPhotos.net I always feel sad when I see women abandoning natural methods of improving egg quality only because they entered fertility treatments, or losing faith in their bodies once they turned 35 or have been trying to get pregnant longer than a few months.

More and more we tend to delay finding a permanent mate. Instead, we develop careers, build security, and basically lay-in supplies for a [...]
