I just want to suggest, once again, to those wanting to conceive using their own eggs /sperm, look into Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (here is one of many info links: http://www.hypermed.com.au/index.htm ).
Here are the bases for my surmise:
HBOT increases microcirculation (neoangiogenesis), and it also increases circulating stem cells. There has been evidence of ovarian stem cells in mice, seen in the production of new follicles.
My guess is, it might take 90-120 days following HBOT for higher quality eggs to ripen and be ovulated. Sperm quality also improves within weeks after HBOT.
I would suggest, acupuncture & herbs (and why not colon & liver cleansing) for improved hormonal balance. Optimizing nutrition/reducing stress seem obvious. Then, some brave soul, try the HBOT! It's lead to more than one "miracle cure" in brain & even spinal cord regeneration; why not the ovaries?
Plus, it's safe & virtually harmless; much easier on the body than IVF. ~Prudence
