I definitely think the coq10 helped us too. We were on it for a few months before IVF. And I changed to a mostly vegan diet after some research on inflammation etc and eggs doing better not in an inflammed body. I was a vegetarian before so wasn't a huge leap. Yes I read all the studies on protein and IVF - but made sure I tracked mine and had heaps of nuts, legumes, beans etc. I also kept went low sugar, no gluten/wheat and was off alcohol and coffee.. Sounds pretty boring but it helped us.
Made sure I had heaps of beetroots, pomegranates etc for health. Also exercised and went back to Bikram yoga before my cycles because I thought it would help with circulation.

Hi! We used oe three times while ivf. Unfortunately all the attempts brought no success. (Me- PCOS & severe endo; dh - absolutely ok). Then we switched the clinic for de ivf. Bought all-inclusive package with 100% refund in case of failure and were finally lucky. If only it was just a choice between oe and de. Unfortunately this is the matter of money. The more you can afford - then more tries you have. Hugs and good luck!
