Just wondering if anyone knows or has experience with Augment (mitochondrial energy transfer ) which is used in Canada ?
Also , has anyone used Embryogen and blastgen culture (I think city fertility maybe do it) ?
My partner & I have had 8 failed IVF cycles (38 yo) and are looking at ways to improve embryos , which can get to day 3 , but struggle after that. Have had 1 x 5 day blast but it didn't take.
We get 8-14 eggs which is good , but they don't seem to be progressing.
Sperm tests counts and motility are fine & DNA frag test come back very good.
I am researching ways to improve embryo quality. Have done DHEA, melatonin , Co Q10, vit D, Chinese herbs, accupuncture , bump fertility diets - the works
So if anyone has any lastest or new info - ones I mentioned above , id love to hear from you !

Sorry to hear you're going through this. This is a subject close to my heart.
There is a thread on this site about Ovascience although you've probably seen it.
Also see this US site https://www.inspire.com/groups/findi...on/ovascience/
and recently I've come across this http://drgavinsacks.com.au/2016/09/r...-women-in-40s/
also look at nicotinamide riboside - see https://www.inspire.com/groups/findi...page=5#replies

@matt Whitney I have only just seen this thread but our situation sounds very similar to yours. We have been ttc no.2 for 4 years now and have done 6 ivf cycles. Our embryos seem to fo well until day 3/4 and then slow down completely. We have had a few blasts at day 6 (still slow) but they dont implant. All DH's results come back looking good, I have PCOS so I do put our issue down to embryo quality due to my eggs.
Our FS wants us to move onto testing donor sperm or eggs but we do feel ready for that yet. Will definitely look at the things you have mentioned to see if it might help. This whole process gets harder and harder doesn't it.
Will read up on those links you have provided too @Golden Egg thankyou xx

You will see that the Inspire threads I've given links to above also mention "ovarian rejuvenation" which is being done at a NY clinic. See this link http://www.infertilityny.com/ovarian-rejuvenation-nyc/
Also, I thought this article about a recent study was interesting - it concludes (as I think ovascience does) that it's not the eggs that are old, it's the ovarian environment. https://news.northwestern.edu/storie...arred-ovaries/
Not sure the above helps in practical terms but I like to know about the current research out there on egg quality.
