How to get pregnant naturally with low ovarian reserve

The great news is that dietary and lifestyle changes can make a tremendous difference in fertility, and often help with other issues like excess weight, lack of energy, blood sugar problems, skin issues, and insomnia in the process.
This is the specific system I use when working with women on fertility, but it is also very useful for helping with PMS, cramping, fatigue, heavy periods and other hormone related problems. Get insulin levels under control- even if you don’t have Type II diabetes, a high carbohydrate diet often goes hand-in-hand with some level of insulin resistance. Get the right amount of exercise– Getting adequate exercise is important for fertility, but too much can have the opposite effect. While diet and lifestyle alone often reverse infertility, some women notice better or faster results with the aid of natural supplements and herbs.
Natural Progesterone Cream– Infertility struggles can often be linked to specific hormone imbalances.
IMPORTANT: Do not take any of these herbs in combination with fertility drugs, hormone treatments, or hormonal birth control! Folic Acid– Folic acid is well known as a necessary vitamin in early pregnancy to prevent complications, but it is most beneficial when taken for several month before the pregnancy as well as during.
You CAN get pregnant naturally regardless of how long you have been trying without success! Another reason that a woman may have low ovarian reserve is because of an injury or surgery that she has sustained over her lifetime.
Low ovarian reserve is a premature decrease in the number of eggs and can be caused by chromosomal anomalies such as Turner Syndrome, where there the woman does not have two X chromosomes, or gene abnormalities such as Fragile X.
Also ovarian tissue can be destroyed through torsion, surgical removal of part or all of the ovary, ovarian cysts caused by endometriosis, benign or malignant ovarian tumors, radiation or chemotherapy, immunological conditions, pelvic adhesions, or a high body mass index.
IVF success for all age groups is extremely dependent on how many eggs the doctor can obtain at the egg retrieval. There also are dynamic tests like the Clomiphene Citrate Challenge Test (CCCT), exogeneous follicle stimulating hormone reserve test (EFFORT), and GAST, the ovarian response to GnRH agonist (GnRHa) test. We perform an evaluation cycle to determine the AMH (anti-mullerian hormone) and AFC (antral follicle count) levels to see if it even makes sense to stimulate the ovaries. Also if we know by testing AMH and AFC levels that is unlikely that we will get more than one to two eggs with a hefty stimulation using a high quantity of medication, then we may want to go with either a natural cycle or low stimulation protocol.
I tried to find accurate info on how much is spent annually on infertility treatments, and I kept getting results for ways to finance treatments for infertility. The good news is that all the women who I have worked with who have changed diet and lifestyle factors have eventually conceived.


Optimizing dietary factors with the above methods will help make your body more sensitive to insulin, which will help production of other hormones and proper function of the body. It is very important to continue these things once pregnant, and not stop giving yourself proper nutrition, which is even more vital for the growth of an unborn child.
Studies have shown that women with low melatonin and serotonin levels have a shorter luteal phase (time between ovulation and menstruation) and consequently have a lower chance of conceiving. Most women do well with several hours of recreational activity a week (walking, fun sports, or swimming) and a few weight training sessions.
The single most important supplement that I’ve seen help women increase fertility, is Fermented Cod Liver Oil, which is also excellent for a developing baby and a healthy pregnancy. Good for both men and women to increase fertility, though women should only take between menses and ovulation and discontinue to make sure it is not taken during pregnancy. Especially for those with short cycles or short second phase of their cycle (ovulation through start of menses), progesterone can be the issue. As with any herbs, supplements, or medication, consult a doctor or health care professional about your specific case and do your own research! 6 months ago I found out that the low calorie carbs I was eating were pointless for health and well-being but I am now reading more and more that suggests 25 years of being vegetarian (no meat or fish) might have contributed to my sub-fertility. Low ovarian reserve is when there is a physiological decrease in the number of eggs, resulting in an insufficient number to ensure a reasonable chance of pregnancy. A poor responder by definition is a woman from whom three or fewer mature follicles are formed after ovarian stimulation. Many times poor responders are older so the quality of their eggs is poorer, which decreases the chance of pregnancy and increases the chance of miscarriages. In our experience if the FSH at the start of stimulation is greater than 15, the chances of having more than 1-2 eggs is very low.
The AMH level indicates the number of eggs in the ovaries; the higher the number the greater the number of eggs. The saddest part is that in many cases, the body can reverse infertility naturally if given the correct resources.
While there are many wonderful naturally minded fertility specialists out there, in many cases it is not possible for them to test for and address any of these possible underlying issues.
The body simply will not allow conception to occur or a pregnancy to continue if it doesn’t have the basic foundation it needs to sustain a pregnancy.
Personally, I take 8+ capsules a day during pre-conception, pregnancy and nursing to make sure baby and I are both getting the nutrients needed. I’ve seen people add only natural progesterone cream and conceive and carry a healthy pregnancy within a month or two.
Some natural doctors recommend taking up to 5,000 micrograms a day and women hoping to get pregnant should take at least 2,000 micrograms a day.


However, last year I got diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, so now I’m really fearful about getting pregnant, or not being able to. While this can make it very difficult for women with low ovarian reserve to become pregnant, there are still things that you can do. You may also want to consider fertility procedures, like in-vitro fertilization, to help you become pregnant faster. There is three times less chance of pregnancy if we obtain less than four eggs from poor responders.
Many women turn to a low-fat, high fiber diet in an attempt to increase health and lose weight. Often, the ideas above will help with many of the physical causes of stress, leaving you more time to (hopefully) relax. Once pregnant, it is great for getting enough nutrients during pregnancy and has a high vitamin K content to prevent hemorrhage. The above system is also helpful for women struggling with PMS, PCOS, endometriosis, heavy periods or other hormonal problems.
That even if I do get pregnant again I’ll have a chance of having a baby with down syndrome. The fertility doctor didn’t suggest this but very much agreed with me pursuing this when I mentioned it. This is also something that you can rely on if you are not able to become pregnant with your own eggs.
That is a 100% success rate in people I’ve worked with personally, and last I saw, the success rate for invitro fertilization was just over 20%.
Given the choice, every woman I have worked with would always prefer to conceive naturally, with just her husband in the room! Your body can’t make the hormones it needs without proteins and fats, and often this factor alone can prevent conception.
Some sources, including a midwife and a doctor I trust, suggest continuing the progesterone cream through the first three months of pregnancy and then tapering off to make sure the body has adequate progesterone to continue the pregnancy until the placenta takes over production in the second trimester.
I truly believe that part of why it’s easy for me to get pregnant regardless of my PCOS diagnosis is because we enjoy our sex life and just let it happens if it does.
I went to see my doctor I was so excited with the news of still being able to get pregnant at my age.
