I would drop Flaxseed/EPO b/c that's a lot of Omega-3 and fatty acid. They can really throw the Ov off. If you're still concerned about CM (you're taking great stuff for it though already) - do Robitussin once you become fertile and use Pre-seed lubricant. The other thing you can do is use OPK's and BBT using www.fertilityfriend.com so your timing is as good as possible.

I think the CoQ10 daily- based on how many people are posting after using it for several months is- a must for most TTC lists who've tried for 3+ months with good timing.

G'luck![/QUOTE]

Ahhhh Thanks very much. That is a big help. You know how you read so much conflicting advice on the net? I thought about stopping the Flaxseed and EPO anyway so you've just double confirmed it for me

Hope you're ok? xx

just a question with regards to the Coq10, how much and for how long, ie do you only do it in FP or do you do it in LP as well etc etc etc

Going to get some today.

I tried Maca but it did not agree with me, tried it twice in case the first time was unrelated but it gives me a really bad upset stomach and bad bad explosive diarrhea I even tried going up in dose slowly slowly but nup, so not good for me!! Farts that aren't farts if you know what I mean!!

I have been pregnant 4 times in the last 18 months the lomgest 12w1d and the most recent 4w5d all other tests are good except low AMH so it's my eggs I need to work on and hoping coq10 may be the answer

Minimum reported success story- dose 60mg, Highest reported dose with success story- 150mg. Both had after 3 months. Since 100mg is a common dosage, I'd start there. Happy Shopping.

thats what i'd like to know too and does one keep taking CoQ10 when pregnant, given that its supposed to be really good as a general supplement too?

ordered some 100mg from healthspan because I wanted vegetable capsules..can't wait to get started.

the 3 month rule appears to be unescapable - an Ayurvedic practitioner, a Chinese traditional practitioner and a Mayan massage therapist have all told me that 3 months is what it would take to correct imbalances, get the uterus back into place and build up the reproductive system...grrr if only i knew this a long time ago or started sooner :dohh

anyway, good luck all....hang in there starsign, may your 2ww be a positive one!

I've not read anything that says to stop at ov, so as far as I know you can take it all cycle. Zita West's pre-conception 'boost' supplements contain CoQ10, and I've just checked her website and it doesn't say anything about needing to stop at ov.

However, from what I've read, the standard advice I've seen is to stop taking it during pregnancy and breastfeeding. I think there hasn't been enough research done on its effects on a developing baby for the experts to say it's safe during that time.

I recently got Doctor's Best veggie tablets from Amazon, bargain compared to what i was paying before.

Mine arrived today. It tastes nothing like orange-pineapple, but it's bearable.

If my head explodes or I grow another finger, I'll blame you.

What dosage are you guys going to take? I see what SS said above re 60-150mg... but then Cypress also mentioned studies talking about 200-800mg, which is quite a bit more. The ones I ordered come in 200mg caps anyway so I guess I'll just do that for starters
