Question: Good afternoon,
I am a 39 years old woman which tries to get pregnant through IVF procedure.
6 years ago, my left tube and overy were removed as it they were damaged by fabrosis . Later on I lost my right side tube due to octopic pregnancy.
Furtunately, I had a succseful IVF procedure with having a baby 3 years ago. Now I wanted to try for another child. However,this time I am not ovolating enough and only had 3 stimulated after 10 days of injections.
I was wondering what type of the diet would help the fertility stimulation and increase the number of eggs ?

Hi,

Thanks for your query. I read your problem and I understand your concerns.

Following is my reply:

1) The decrease in number of eggs upon stimulation as well as decreased fertility chances are related to your age.

2) I am afraid, there is no role of specific diet in improving egg quality or the quantity. I understand you might heard many rumors or read in internet about fertility enhancing diet, but unfortunately it does not help.

3) Just have low fat diet which keeps your weight under control as obesity decreases chance of fertility.

4) Since your age is increasing, I suggest go through the IVF as early as possible for maximizung chances of pregnancy.

I hope I answered your queries. Feel free to ask if you have any more queries.

Regards,

My 2 yr child has been diagnosed with an enlarged liver and we are doing test at the hospital. First LFT had AST and ALT at 140 and 163, 5 days later it was 138 and 155 while Total Bilirubin was 1.3. Tested negative for all the Hepatitis tests. CT scan did not reveal any masses. He has pain while passing stool and is OK once that is done. Is on a fat free diet with lots of veggies and fresh fruit juice. After 7 days of the last LFT there was another LFT done for which the results will be out tomorrow. At this moment there is no yellowing of skin or eyes but he does seem sluggish. What could the problem potentially be? Thank You for your answer in advance!!!
