    Hi all, I'm new to this forum although I have been lurking around for a couple of months....

    1st time ttc.... I came off dianette in January and have been lucky enough to get my cycles back straight away, I have been using opk's but I cannot temp due to medication I am taking due to it interfering with my sleep.

    I am going to get some conceive plus lube and I want to start taking vitamins...

    I am already taking folic acid..... But which multi vits do you all take?? or which brands?

    A bit clueless....

    I just take folic acid, evening primrose oil and this month I've taken vitamin b6 - you don't have to take that ususally, it's just I was concerned my LP was too short (10 days). If we don't get bfp this month I'm going to start looking at supplements for hub I think lol xx

    I take pregnacare original, evening primrose oil from AF to ovulation, co-enzyme Q10 and maca root.
    The EPO helps with cervical mucus and the coQ10 and maca for egg quality seeing as I'm an oldie!!

    I'm just taking boots folic acid with vit d, ive got stash of pregnacare left over which I'll switch to if I'm lucky to get another BFP. Other half has vit c and zinc, though thinks its for immunity to colds, but its my sneaky way of improving his wrigglers without denting his pride!

    Karen I'm also thinking I should take something else coz of age so thanks for links.
