How To Improve Egg Health When You Have Low AMH and/or High FSH

How To Improve Egg Health When You Have Low AMH and/or High FSH

We’re digging into how to improve egg health if you have low AMH and/or high FSH.

Maybe you’ve been told you have poor egg quality.

You may have experienced irregular menstrual cycles, poor fertilization rates, low AMH, high FSH, low levels of estradiol, chromosomal disorders and pregnancy loss.

This may have sent you down a rabbit hole of information overload.

After all, there is so much generalized information about how to improve egg quality.

But what if there were specific steps you could take right now to improve your egg quality?

It’s not about following another egg-quality diet; it’s about uncovering the factors that negatively influence your egg health to improve pregnancy success.

Katy Bradbury is a registered nurse and nutritional therapist and part of my team here at Fab Fertile. She is our clinical advisor. She is an integral part of our Couples Coaching program - which uses functional lab testing, diet, and lifestyle changes to improve conception dramatically. If you are struggling with infertility, your body is desperately trying to tell you something. Focusing on your health will either help you get pregnant naturally or, if you do need to go to the fertility clinic, it will improve your chances of success.

In this episode, you'll learn:

  1. Why your doctor is testing the wrong biomarkers for egg quality
  2. The specific diet that helps egg quality
  3. How to know if this hormone is impacting egg quality (especially if you have low AMH and/or high FSH)
  4. The supplements for egg health (and how not to waste money on supplements)






      • AMH is not a marker of egg quality.
      • Egg health refers to the quality and quantity
      • When we’re talking about egg quality, we want to know if the egg is chromosomally normal


      • Mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell, and eggs carry a high proportion of mitochondria
      • If we concentrate on mitochondrial health, we can help support egg quality by proxy.
      • Mitochondria are very susceptible to the aging process.


      • You can’t directly test egg quality.
      • If you have had rounds of IVF that have not worked, early miscarriages, or infertility generally, then we want to focus on egg quality


      • FSH signals that it's time to allow an egg to mature and be released in the ovulatory cycle
      • If egg quality is compromised, follicles can become resistant to FSH

      13:02 ESTRADIOL (E2)

      • Estradiol is the form of estrogen that’s produced primarily in the ovaries
      • In the first few days of the menstrual cycle, we're looking for E2 under 50 pg/mL
      • When estradiol rises too quickly, this can indicate that the ovaries are responding a bit prematurely, and the egg quality could be compromised for that cycle


      • If your AMH is low, we have to look at your whole body and see what's being missed.
      • Some people in the fertility industry use AMH as a scare tactic to rush people into treatment more quickly
      • AMH is not necessarily the most accurate predictor of the amount of eggs you have left.
      • Misconceptions about AMH and antral follicle count

      • Your diet can help or hinder your fertility.
      • Chronic inflammation will cause problems with your reproductive health
      • Our body’s symptoms are signs that something may be wrong
      • It’s hard to meet all your nutritional needs while eating only plants.
      • There’s no right diet, only the right diet for you.
      • Eat the rainbow.
      • Even though you may be functioning and your health seems fine, is it optimal?
      • Unexplained infertility is a lazy diagnosis.
