Found on the Babies After 50 mailing list:

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:

Here is the basis for my surmise:

HBOT [Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy] 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 and herbs (and why not colon and liver cleansing) for improved hormonal balance. Optimizing nutrition/reducing seems seem obvious.

Then, some brave soul, try the HBOT!

It's lead to more than one miracle cure in brain and even spinal cord regeneration; why not the ovaries?

Plus, it's safe and virtually harmless; much easier on the body than IVF. ~Prudence

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
