There is no recipe for what lifestyle you should follow to increase your success of oocyte cryopreservation aka egg/embryo freezing. When we are talking about increasing success, it means how many eggs you will be able to freeze. Here are some general recommendations that you can follow to prepare your body for egg/embryo freezing:

  • decreasing stress
  • sleep well (7-9 hours per night)
  • regular exercise (30 mins 4 times a week) - but generally do what feels comfortable
  • healthy food (high fiber food, fruits and vegetables, no processed food and limited sugar)
  • maintain your BMI in the “normal” range 19-24
  • decrease or eliminate alcohol
  • take vitamins and supplements (some examples are folic acid, melatonin, antioxidant such as CoQ10, vitamin B, omega 3, - consult your physician)
  • weekly acupuncture treatment can help improve the sperm quality and ovaries function and balancing the endocrine system and hormones. It is recommended to start with a course of 6-10 treatments. Book your acupuncture for fertility.
  • stop smoking
  • avoid exposure to toxins and plastic

These changes if applied 1 to 3 months before starting your egg freezing cycle may positively affect your results.
