How to improve my egg quality for egg retrieval?

I am 38 years old. I am on my 1st IVF cycle. I had hCG injection before I had my egg retrieval. However, the doctor only managed to get 4 eggs from my ovary and the size is smaller than usual. Is there anything I can do to improve my egg production and quality? Is there any food that I can't eat? What supplements would you suggest me to take?

Answer from the Doctor
Your egg yield depends on your health, weight and ovarian reserve. It also depends on the IVF medication and dose used. Timing of the trigger shot is also important on determining number and maturity of eggs. Those are some things can be improved in your next IVF cycle.

Eat healthy, well balanced meals.
Antioxidants may be beneficial, along with folic acid.
