Over the past 10 years, many scientific studies have been published looking at the impact of certain micronutrients on several aspects of female reproductive health, including ovarian reserve, oocyte quality, uterine receptivity and PCOS .

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the different aspects of female reproductive health that may be influenced by micronutrient supplementation
  2. Understand the impact of DHEA, coenzymeQ10 and inositol supplementation on ovarian reserve and egg quality
  3. Understand the impact of vitamin D and DHA on uterine receptivity and delivery term.
