Egg Quality

Shalom Dr Brian, l have regular periods and have no problem with ovulation. However after two failed attempts at IVF in Greece they tell me my problem is the quality of my eggs. My doctor tells me that l am only 30 years old so there's plenty time to keep trying and that they just have to keep changing the hormones they give to me in order to improve the quality. Could you please give me some advice?

I am sorry to hear that you have had two failed cycles in Greece. I would agree with your doctor that you do have time on your side at the age of 30.  Without any information on your previous cycles it is difficult for me to advise you but I would suggest that you see a fertility specialist with all the information from your IVF attempts and they will be able to comment on the quality of your eggs.
