Publisher's Summary

Whether you are trying to conceive naturally or through IVF, the quality of your eggs will have a powerful impact on how long it takes you to get pregnant and whether you face an increased risk of miscarriage. Poor egg quality is emerging as the single most important cause of age-related infertility, recurrent miscarriage, and failed IVF cycles. It is also a major contributor to infertility in PCOS.
Based on a comprehensive investigation of a vast array of scientific research, It Starts with the Egg reveals a groundbreaking new approach for improving egg quality and fertility. With a concrete strategy that includes minimizing exposure to toxins such as BPA and phthalates, choosing the right vitamins and supplements to safeguard developing eggs, and harnessing nutritional advice shown to boost IVF success rates, this book offers practical solutions that will help you get pregnant faster and deliver a healthy baby.

The reader is torture

What would have made It Starts with the Egg better?

A different reader

What didn’t you like about Anne Flosnik’s performance?


You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The actual book is very interesting... I've read half of it myself when I had more time. The reader trashed it for me... The fact that I can't tell what the reader sounds like before I get this (got the book on amazon) makes me want to unsubscribe immediately.

Any additional comments?

I'm unsubscribing now

Interesting book

Narrators voice a little irritating but overall a good informative book. Does scare you a bit with all the things you shouldn't expose yourself to. Should take it lightly and not get stressed by all the lifestyle changes suggested.
