Slowing your Reproductive Clock article

Postby TTCnumber2at42 » Sat Jul 14, 2012 2:41 pm

I just came across this article i thought all of us over 40 would be interested in reading:

http://ca.mg206.mail.yahoo.com/neo/laun ... o9v25vl60k

Here is an excerpt:
Until now western reproductive medicine has insisted that a woman is born with a fixed number of eggs and that the sharp decline in the quality and quantity of eggs after age 35 is irreversible. However, new studies challenge the absoluteness of this view. A recent study from Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto on coenzyme-Q10 (Co-Q10) and egg quality suggests that, in fact, it may be possible to improve egg quality and slow down or even reverse the aging process.

I have been reading on another forum where ladies have been taking the COQ10, they have been taking anywhere from 100-300mg per day and have been having success with pregnancy. They also say they have been giving it to their husbands as it promotes healthy stronger sperm. These ladies are in their late 30's as well as the early 40's. Also another interesting things I read was egg formation takes 3 months, so in other words the eggs we internally harvasted 90 days ago are the one that are showing up in our cycle this month. I hear the supplement is pricey but If I am not BFP this month I am going to start using this supplement. I also read where Dr's have said once you get your BFP to stop taking it because they dont have enough research to know what it does after conception.

I am now 8 DPO and could not resist testing yesterday, I know way to early....... got a BFN. :( I can see I am fast becoming a test a holic. Could'nt help myself, the suspense was killing me. This TTC SUCKS... Sure wish it would just come naturally..
