It Starts with the Egg

It Starts with the Egg by Rebecca Fett is a comprehensive guide that delves into the scientific and practical aspects of improving egg quality and fertility. Many women are not aware that egg quality is not just about achieving pregnancy – egg quality influences what a menstrual cycle looks like – whether it’s heavy or irregular because ovulation is the only way to make estradiol and progesterone, which are beneficial for mood, energy, libido, insulin response, thyroid, skin, hair, and so much more.

This book is aimed women trying to conceive, but it’s also an excellent book for any woman who wants to optimise her menstrual cycle. Fett, who has a background in molecular biology and biochemistry, presents research on how various factors can impact egg quality. The book covers a range of topics including:

  1. Environmental Factors: It discusses how certain environmental toxins and chemicals, such as BPA (bisphenol A), phthalates, and others found in everyday products, can negatively affect egg quality.
  2. Diet and Nutrition: Fett provides guidance on dietary changes and nutritional supplements that may improve egg quality. This includes advice on specific vitamins and minerals that are important for fertility.
  3. Lifestyle Choices: The book also addresses lifestyle factors like stress management and exercise, emphasizing their role in overall reproductive health.
  4. Scientific Research and Evidence: Fett backs her recommendations with scientific research, making the book a resource for evidence-based advice on improving fertility.
  5. Practical Tips and Plans: The book offers practical tips and detailed plans to help readers implement the suggestions, making it a practical guide for those looking to improve their chances of conception.

Fett’s approach combines scientific research with holistic health, offering a comprehensive guide for improving egg quality and fertility, a great read and packed with information.
