    I'm currently taking my prenatal which also has DHA in it (prescription strength), and then I'm taking a Myo-Inositol and D-chiro Inositol blend, Vitamin D and coQ10. Sounds like a lot but I spread them out through the day. Vitamin D and one dose of the Inositol in the morning and prenatal, coQ10 and second dose of Inositol in the afternoon/ evening.

    Interesting... what’s the myo-inositol & d-chiro for? How much q-10 not sure if dha is In mine. I’m on pregnacare, d3 but not sure which dose I should start taking, b-50 complex and ordered progesterone cream since no bloody hospital in U.K. are willing to help me. I’m going to try cut out all refined sugar and I just bought ubiquonal for me and my husband £100 a month though! Is it q—10 or ubiquonal you take what dose? I also ordered the book ‘it starts with the egg’

    I'm on 1000 IU of vitamin D because I have a deficiency. 200 mg of the coQ10. The inositol helps with ovarian production, egg quality, and hormonal balance. DHA is easy to find in its own supplementation form if it's not in your prenatal. Not many prenatals also include DHA - mine is a prescription strength (vitapearl...check them out and ask your doctor for a scrip, although it might be a US company).

    I'm sorry doctors aren't willing to help. Can you find a RE? They tend to know a lot more about reproductive health than even ob/gyns. It's crazy to me how little ob/gyns actually know about infertility. You would think that's a main part of their job, but no. That's why reproductive endocrinologists exist.

    Hope that helps!

    Seems everything im reading though 4000IU in d3 is in safe limits even on nhs website? My vitamin I got given with Leo was 400IU which seems nothing. Just needing to maybe a decision as my 4,000iu are on there way in the post. Doctor looked at me like I was mad to take more than 400IU so not sure what to do?

    Im on 400mg of ubiquonal I hope that’s not too much.

    Things like that don’t exist here in the UK!

    No idea also what to do about my b-complex :shrug:

    Your prenatal might have b in it. Also your prenatal probably has d3 in it, so watch out for that. I have three different supplements I'm currently that have d3 in it. Just pay attention to what's in your supplements because it's not always just what is labeled. Some vitamins/ minerals interact with each other negatively. What is the ubiquonol for?

    I've met lots of women on here who live in the UK who are currently seeing fertility specialists. They exist. You just have to know where to look. There's lots of terms for them - reproductive endocrinologists are the formal term. Fertility specialists, reproductive health, infertility care, etc.

    Anyway, just make sure your supplements don't interact negatively or you're getting too much of a vitamin/ mineral because it's hidden in other supplements. A lot of companies mix them in because they're good for us! Also, Amazon has a great selection of high quality organic supplements. Try to start with the organic version of whatever you're taking first because it's most likely better quality, and some cases actually real (yes there are "fake" or synthetic versions of almost everything).

    Hope it all works out for you!

    Hi ladies, sorry to hear about all the losses, but it's great to see so many got their bfp's!!

    I've been an off /on member since 2013. Had several mc's before I finally got my beautiful little girl in 2015. We're both really wanting another but once again haven't been so lucky. 2 consecutive mc's, lost the sac yesterday and my symptoms are now almost entirely gone. Previously had one this time last year.

    I'm currently at peace with what's happened, but I'm finally ready to start taking coq10 - I just don't have a clue as to what brand, any suggestions? From what I've read 600mg is recommended for older women (I'm 39) but they're quite expensive, still cheaper than ivf, but not sure if to go for some of the cheaper brands.

    This is what I take. For fertility they recommend 200mg but I don't know about recs for older women.

    And I'm so sorry about your recent loss and all previous losses. Miscarriages suck. If only there were more answers.

    Do you know for us older ones q-10 is needed with a higher amount and ubiquonal (is the more readily more expensive form)
