I have yet to shop for some. I'm stuck at work right now, but will head to the store and pick some up right when I'm off. I want to start taking it asap. I was thinking of trying 200mg to start. We'll see.
I'm happy to say that I'm on the cock now too! I bought Nature Valley brand from Walmart, 100mg pills and am taking 2 a day. I hope it brings me good results, I just wish my final IUI wasn't so soon. Hopefully it works fast, but everyone here says 3 months. We will see.
Hello everyone - OP here - just wanted to day, thanks to everyone for making this such an informative, lively and humourous thread!
I have been following the thread throughout, but have not wanted to come back on unless/until I had something to add. So now I have a little update: after starting to take 600mg/day of Q10 last Nov after reading the article in the original post, I fell pregnant in January and have now just finished my first trimester! This is highly significant to me because we started TTC at the beginning of 2011, and were lucky enough to fall preggers twice, but both times miscarried in the first tri. I don't know how things are going to go from here onwards (fingers crossed all well), but to get to 14 weeks with a healthy bub is a major achievement for me.
I had previously been taking 30-60mg of Q10, I had no idea that you could take higher doses, or that higher doses might help.
HOWEVER, I am not saying that the Q10 has been the one thing that improved things this time round, there is no way for me to know. But I like to think that the Q10 helped in some way! The other things I did differently this time were that I also took 75mg/day of DHEA until BFP, and then a low-dose aspirin daily after BFP (as I wondered if maybe blood clots were causing my mc's). I also took 1tsp/day of maca until BFP, and used the Sperm Meets Egg Plan, Clearblue Fertility Monitor (recommend Clearblue smiley-face sticks if you don't have one) and Preseed and Softcups on the days of LH surge and the following two days.
One side-effect I got was spots - but I don't know if they were caused by the Q10 or the DHEA.
Good luck and big hugs and lots of baby dust to everyone - bring on lots of Q10 BFPs! xxx
