    I am 41 and have had multiple miscarriages, I have a low follicle count if 2-4 even on clomid and am not ovulating regularly without it. Previous IVF with high gonal F of 450 only produced 5 eggs. So you recommend IVM to collect a few eggs to mature in the lab rather than IVF ? As drugs don’t seem to produce more or better quality eggs. I wish to use my own eggs.

    Thank you

    Would guacamole just as good as eating an avocado?

    Keep trying! I have had a baby from IVF…I ate pineapple before my egg transfer and I think it might have helped. I also ate lots of avocados. Stay positive and relaxed. Good luck to all of you!

      Thank you for a simple, sweet and positive comment! I’m starting a process and I feel really positive. I’m working on having the healthiest diet possible and I love avocado and pineapple!

      @kaitlin – How many is a lot of avocados? I have been wondering about this and none of the articles reference the quantity. Thanks!

      I just had my embryo transfer. What should I be eating for the next 2 weeks until the pregnancy test?

    Hi Alexandria, I’ve just seen your reply to my comment. We still don’t know the outcome of embryo transfer, due to some early complications. There’s still a glimmer of hope though. Wishing you really well with your journey. Regarding what food to eat, I’ve come to the conclusion that a normal balanced mix of food is fine – I eat fairly healthily anyway and with good supplements, I believe I’m getting everything I need. Much love x

  • Such a wonderful, helpful, no nonsense article. There’s so much information out there about what to eat and what not to eat. This article simplifies things for me, ahead of our frozen embryo transfer in May. Thank you.

      Hi, how has the embryo transfer in May gone? I’ve had one cancelled IUI in January and hope to try IVF in June. Have you followed a specific diet? If yes, has it helped? I’ve been gobbling avocados, bananas and nuts and keeping my fingers crossed. Do share how your journey has been. Cheers and goodluck! X
