Dr Manika Khanna

For women, healthy eggs are one of the basic factors for getting pregnant as quickly as you would expect. There was once a common belief among people that a woman’s egg health depends upon her age and as she crosses her 30’s the quality of her eggs begin to decline. But this is not true now, as there are many factors that contribute in determining the egg’s health.

The quality of the eggs totally depends upon individual’s diet, environmental factors, hormonal balance and much more. Visit any IVF Centre  and get your complete fertility checkup and tests done to figure out the major factors responsible for the delay in pregnancy. For fertility, one should always remember that proper circulation and a healthy fertility cycle is a must.

Though, eggs health cannot be increased within a day. It takes around 90 days to improve egg health as the egg cycle for ovulation preparation takes this much time.

Below is a quick guide on how to increase egg health within 90 days period which is recommended by the IVF doctors in India:

  1. Eat fertility boosting food:
  • Fats help in making hormones, so eat food containing healthy fats.
  • Proteins help in the formation of new cells, so try to include organic proteins in your diet.
  1. Maintain a good hormonal balance:

There are many environmental factors, stress and improper diet that leads to hormonal imbalance which can affect your fertility cycle to a great extent.
