    Hi everyone, this has probably been asked many times before but as the title says..... what vitamins and supplements were you taking before your IVF cycle?

    I've taken tons in the past including COQ10/Ubiquinol, Omega 3, Vitamin D, Inositol and so many more.....

    Serum have recommended we take COQ10, Melatonin and Inositol. I've decided not to take the Melatonin as I keep reading that it can exuberate depression and I do tend to have a bit of this. I wasn't going to take the Inositol as was taking it last cycle and only had one egg retrieved and I'd put 2 & 2 together and come up with 6 that that could have been the cause. I've changed my mind though after doing some research, so am taking it again.

    So this cycle I am on:
    COQ10 800-1200mg (I was using the stronger version called Ubiquinol last time)
    Inositol & Folate from Zita West
    The antioxidant tablets from Zita West - a top up to your usual prenatal vitamin
    Vitamin D spray 3000mg
    Omega 3 with DHA & EPA 1050mg
    Centrium Pre natal tablets

    Any suggestions? X

    I just took conception vitamin. High dose vit d spray (my Amh increases after this. Was only 2, went up to 4. Still low for age, but better) and 800mg of coq10 a day. Lots of luck for your cycle xx

    I just took vitamin D and CoQ10 on and off (some cycles I have, some not). My friend's consultant at my clinic told her to take it so I guess it's good. X
