MrsBananas:  Replying here to see what the responses are. I have been TTC for 6 months and just found out that my eggs are only about 16-17mm when I ovulate on my own. I have heard 18mm is the bare minimum that doctors look for. So, looking for ways to make more mature/ healthy eggs!

I do have PCOS, but I also took ubiquinol to improve my egg quality after having a miscarriage in January due to triploidy (and all the signs point to maternal triploidy; i.e., it was my egg that failed to divide properly). I got pregnant on the fifth cycle post-MC, which was two months after I started taking the ubiquinol. I know they say it takes three months for whatever you’re doing now to have an effect in your egg quality, so I’m not sure the ubiquinol is what did the trick. (Of course, I’m also not sure that this is a healthy pregnancy yet!) But I thought it was worth a shot.

MrsBananas:  You might know this from seeing my chart, but I started Pregnitude this cycle (1 packet a day instead of the full dose of two/day) after my early MC in June. I do not have pcos. I was also worried about egg quality with my long cycles and heard Pregnitude would help shorten and regulate longer cycles as well as boosting healthy egg quality. I haven’t been taking it long enough to notice yet but hopefully after next cycle I’ll be able to see a difference, and hopefully when we TTC again my eggs will be healthy and ready to grow! 🙂

MrsBananas:  I ovulate every month and I don’t have PCOS, and I’m taking pregnitude to improve egg quality. I’m only using 1 packet a day instead of 2. I’m also taking CoQ10, vitamin C, vitamin E for egg quality. I’ve had so many chemical pregnancies that I suspect my egg quality may not be the best.

MrsBananas:  I’m taking 1/2 the dosage for a few reasons. 1. It’s expensive and I can get double the lifespan out of it. I don’t think DH would be a fan of me ordering it every month. 2. We aren’t TTC until December so I have some time to see if just the one packet is enough to help regulate my cycles. I might take the full dosage closer to TTC though for best egg quality.

MrsBananas:  I take pregnitude. No PCOS here. My doc suggested I take it to improve egg quality. She said some women have success with it. So far no luck for me, but I will continue to take it.

keep us posted if you find these vitamins help your egg quality.  my egg quality isn’t great either and the RE said there was nothing I could do to improve it, it is what it is.

MrsBananas:  CCRM (Colorado Center for Reproductive Medicine) which is considered one, if not the best fertility clinic in the US has a supplement list for “poor responders” that they recommend their patients to take 3 months before IVF to improve egg quality. If you Google “CCRM supplement list” you will find it. It does include CoQ10 and myo-inositol as well as other supplements
