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.

Horrible Narrator. Read the book instead!

What made the experience of listening to It Starts with the Egg the most enjoyable?

Definitely NOT the narrator! The author's helpful info made is bearable.

What was one of the most memorable moments of It Starts with the Egg?

Anne Flosnik's terrible voice. I first thought it was AI narrating, but when I found out it's an actual person, I couldn't believe they let her do this for a living!

Would you be willing to try another one of Anne Flosnik’s performances?

NEVER!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me cringe.

Any additional comments?

The chapters are not synced on the Audible app. After suffering for 7 hours, I am buying and reading the book.
