A recent study found that women doing IVF are exposed to multiple EDCs. In particular, they found that women who were exposed to chemicals found in plastics called phthalates, had lower chances of success in IVF. Previous work from this group has shown that women who are exposed to phthalates have fewer eggs at egg retrieval and fewer embryos.
✅Limit your exposure to phthalates, particularly if you are going to be doing IVF
✅Start simply by removing phthalate exposure in your kitchen
✅Use personal care products that are phthalate free.
