BT/GT have acted as the best fertility drugs so far, in my experience with couples trying to conceive.

Important is both follow their guidelines compliantly, which helps them get rid of all the junk in their system.......it sounds so simple, and in fact it is......

structural damage in the reproductive system of any one of the partners is another matter, but those too, need not only their specific treatment, but also become aware of the importance in getting their body back in balance.

I wonder if their are any secretor/non-secretor differences in the ABO types being studied. Based on what we already know about this I suppose the O nonnies are slightly more fertile than the O secretors.
A nonnies slightly more fertile than A secretors. Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) is what made the difference in this study.

Curious what it would say about B's and AB's, but since they are far less common less is known about those blood groups.

Dr D.. when you stuck your neck out like a ant eater years ago no one ever talked about blood type.. I wonder just how many items are being tested today with blood type in mind~!  You started a EPI-REVOLUTION..  Did you KNOW?

I bet my nonniness won over mine and DH's "incompatible" blood types.

Don't hold your breath, Lola.

One day the evidence will be so overwhelming, that they will start saying that they suspected, but could not prove with reliable studies that epi-genetic differences were the cause of so much variation of response ....

I plan to be around for that day.   ;D

Very interesting about O mothers having greater number of surviving O offspring when the father is a heterozygous A.

there would be no O allele to pass on if A dad were homozygous of A, now would there ;)

I thought this was interesting about Henry VIII and Kell blood type. It is conjectured that his many health problems and the numerous miscarriages of his wives could be due to his having a rare blood type.
