Make those 100 days count
Reach Your Peak Fertile Potential with Pro-Active Preconception Care Before You Have Your Olive appointment
Did you know that the most important time to optimize your fertility (and that of your male partner if you have one) is during the 100 days before conception occurs?
Your wait time for your Olive appointment is a great opportunity to get your mind and body in the best shape to conceive a baby whether naturally or with IVF.
We now know that the egg that is selected to ovulate each month is recruited three to four months before ovulation. The environment in which your eggs grow and mature during this crucial period can impact your fertility and future health of your child.
Your eggs need proper blood flow, oxygenation, balanced hormones and specific nutrients in order to reach their peak fertility potential.
It’s about the guys too! Increasingly scientific studies are also showing how important healthy sperm is for optimizing the chances of conception and of having a healthy baby whether you conceive naturally, with IUI or IVF.
Studies have shown that improvements in diet, lifestyle, environment and blood flow to the reproductive organs can improve egg quality in women and sperm quantity in men.
Natural Ways to Optimize your Fertility
- Lifestyle (moderate exercise, adequate rest, and sufficient deep sleep)
- Stress reduction & mind body tools
- Community (connections with family, friends, co workers and most importantly, yourself)
- Acupuncture and laser (LLLT) acupuncture for fertility
There is extensive research showing that that acupuncture can help reduce stress and release feel good endorphins, regulate your menstrual cycle and improve blood flow to the ovaries, uterus and endometrial lining. We recommend that you begin acupuncture prior to your first appointment for best outcome. Acupuncture is available through Acubalance during stimulation and on Transfer day onsite at Olive for your convenience.

A healthy body weight is essential for optimal fertility for both men and women. A Body Mass Index (BMI) that is either too high or too low can reduce your chances of getting pregnant and having a healthy pregnancy. The Acubalance Health team can customize weight management strategies to help you achieve your fertility goals, and give our future generation a healthy start to life.
A Harvard based study has shown that diet can significantly impact hormone balance, egg and sperm quality and conception rates. Improving your lifestyle habits and following a fertility friendly diet can improve the quality of embryos and increase your chances of conceiving naturally or with IVF. Acubalance has developed a Fertility Diet, based on the Harvard research, that can help you get your body in the best state to conceive.
