Egg maturity is a key piece of the fertility puzzle… in that 90 days, you have a wide open window of opportunity to improve your egg quality!

Fresh veggies, fruits, and healthy fats will give your body the fuel it needs for babymaking. No need to avoid carbs either! Your body needs some slow burning carbs to prepare for pregnancy. Check out our guide to eating your way to better fertility here.
8, 8-oz glasses of water is the recommended amount. Remember, water is crucial to our body’s natural detoxification processes. The more we help our bodies eliminate toxins, the healthier we will be in general and in TTC.
Exercising 30-60 minutes per day can help give your fertility a boost, regulate your menstrual cycles, aid in ovulation, and even decrease risk of miscarriage. This is not a good time to overexercise, though! Check out our guide on exercising for fertility.
Caffeine is associated with sub-optimal or suppressed fertility. It also depletes vital vitamins and minerals needed for ovulation and healthy fertility.

Just as smoking wouldn’t be healthy during pregnancy, it is not healthy for your eggs either. Infertility rates are double for smokers, compared to non-smokers. That’s in both men and women, so if your partner smokes, now’s a good time for him to quit, too.
Alcohol, too! Basically anything you shouldn’t be doing while you’re pregnant, you should avoid while trying to conceive in order to care for your eggs.
Stick with it for 90 days, and your eggs will thank you. You’ve got this!
