Thanks!!
Ps, get hubby to take Co Q10 as well, it is great for sperm motility and quality... get him to take vitamin E and C and also multivitamins for at least 3 months. (as it takes 3 months for the new sperms to be made) Try acupuncture, a lot of ladies said great things about it, I didn't really believe it but I tried it... it was doing something... my periods were always regular and as soon as I started acupuncture, they were crazy and iregular... and I was a bit disappointed and asked the sweet little old man (acupuncturist) why was that and his answer was that sometimes, even though we ovulate, we ovulate eggs that are not really mature and that acupuncture gave it more time for the egg to mature... well... after the 7th weekly treatment I was pregnant. He is really really good, has hundreds of baby pictures and letters, been in the newspaper several times and he is not nearly as expensive as some of the london clinics. One key supplement is DHEA, it will help with egg quality and your AMH. Have you done your bloods? FSH? AMH? Inmune?

Lol Happy, we are the same. I am exhausted from strategising to get my needs met by the system! I did the same thing, got it on repeat from the GP but I noticed she wants to review it in January, so i am gearing up for that battle! It's all about having the knowledge to wade your way through the minefield. I agree I will think about when to stop it when I get to the right point, but I know it isn't now. Hope all is well with you otherwise!

2bluelines, I'm not sure about US brands but I would say go for the better quality supplements, they cost more but tend to contain better quality ingredients. I always look at the ingredient list to make sure it isn't filled with too many unnecessary chemicals and preservatives. Fish oil (omega 3) and Vit D are also recommended. Good luck!!

) lol... you gotta do what you gotta do! lol lol... my consultant thinks I am a pain in the ass!!! I don't care! In fact, one fo the ******* consultants told me (verbatim) " I don't think your miscarriages are due to any other condition than your advance age. If I was you, I would just give up now. (to which I said I was going to pay for IVF as this was the NHS) and he said, go ahead if you want, there are plenty of clinics wanting to take your money" and had I been a conservative-follow the rules-think inside the box-little kitten, I would have shriveled up and cried my eyes out... instead inside of me I thought "*******, I WILL SHOW YOU" and that just made me more determined to try even harder. When i rang them and said I wasn't coming for my third round of ovulation induction because I was already pregnant, the nurse's comments were just priceless!!! She was speechless! lol... They don't really care, they just treat you like a number... next! I insisted to get a blood test as I told them that I was sure I had a blood coagulation disorder. They wanted me to have a third miscarriage (I lied to the consultant as he was a different one that day) and told him I had already had 3... (I had only had 2) and he didn't bother check my files and approved the blood test... and lo and behold, the test came positive (slightly but nontheless positive)! So yeah, you gotta play the system. Ring your consultant, bug them, bitch and moan, become hysterical (not that that is what I did hahaha) and tell them you are really scard to stop in January... make them give you another appointment and ask a million questions and ask them what evidence they have that you can stop after 12 weeks or so... hahahaha (and then tell me what they said lol) x

Hi, if you want the bestest ever DHEA buy FERTINATAL. Very expensive but it is endorsed by one of the leading fertility clinics in the USA. I ordered 3 months worth from them, only to not used them as I was alraedy pregnant when they arrived to the UK from the USA. I however, bought from a website called Biovea but I think that one is a british one. It seems that their DHEA is just as good as it worked

Well so long as the DHEA is micronized then it should work. I didn't use the Fertinatal one... I used one from BIOVEA on line... I just thought I would try the fertinatal one
