Today, with the increase in older age marriages, the number of patients who want to freeze their eggs and take advantage of this opportunity has increased considerably. Moreover, one of the benefits of egg freezing is that oncology patients are always given the opportunity to become mothers by freezing eggs before their treatment!
One of the substances that cause infertility in women is the low number of eggs and low egg quality. At this point, IVF treatment or assisted reproductive techniques are needed. The causative substances are identified, and a solution is reached on that path.
There are names that almost everyone has heard from commercial products such as a cure, synthetic medicine, and many synthetic medicines used to improve egg quality. If some of these are real, it is known and accepted that many are not useful. In particular, there will be a drug supplement that every woman trying to get pregnant researches and finds very useful in her own way.
First of all, it should be said that if the expectant mother does not have a chronic illness, a known genetic disease, egg failure, smoking and alcohol addiction, there is no problem to be worried about egg quality. However, suppose there is a reverse situation and the prepared drugs read on the internet. In that case, commercial products with the nature of synthetic drugs will not really work.
What should be taken into consideration in the patient who has decided to freeze eggs?
Set yourself a healthy lifestyle. Make your lifestyle healthy, for instance. Let’s adopt a healthy life as a principle. Every baby girl is already born with millions of egg cells. Meanwhile, the chronic diseases of the woman in her life, her diet, etc., may be among the factors affecting her reproduction. It can affect the quality of your eggs. To ensure that the digestive, respiratory, excretory and reproductive systems function optimally, it is necessary to improve the health of the body. We usually ask our patients to lose weight before the treatments. We warn them to gain a healthy weight and stay at their normal weight. Because when it is excessive, it can also affect the reproductive system.
Stress is in a big area of our lives today, and it is impossible to escape!
One of the most important recommendations, especially for women trying to conceive, is to stay away from stress. Yes, we need to stay away from some stress for a healthy reproductive system. Stress is not a cause in itself, but a calmer life will certainly have a positive effect. It is necessary to create a stress-free living space and create a protected area for oneself, even for a few hours during the day. You can do yoga, pilates, or sports that will relax your soul for a few hours during the day. Or you can prefer brisk walks in the evenings.
Be sure to avoid smoking and alcohol!
Stress is covered, now it’s time for cigarettes and alcohol. Especially if you are going to try to freeze an egg for your pregnancy desire or future pregnancy desire, smoking, alcohol and caffeine have an effect that reduces the possibility of pregnancy and egg quality in order to increase the quality of your eggs. For this reason, we definitely stay away from cigarettes and alcohol, and then from caffeine. For example, you can drink one or two cups of Turkish coffee a day.
Don’t disregard your vitamin supplements!
We can say that antioxidants such as vitamins A and E help the baby’s DNA to be healthier and help the mitochondrial activities of eggs, which are a source of energy. Therefore, taking Q10 before egg freezing may mean that the baby will be healthier in the future at the time of transfer. It looks like we’d better take care now, as we’ll be freezing your eggs.
