Hello,

 

Just curious what supplements and dosage are you guys taking in prep for IVF? 

 

For me, I am taking these for 2 months now and I am not sure if the dosages are enough

 

  • D3 1000UI
  • Vitamin E 200UI
  • Folic Acid 400mcg
  • Ubiquinol 200mg

 

Thinking of adding Omega 3 (DHA and EPA) soon. 

 

 

Thanks!

Hi Summervibe!

My naturopath has me on Omega 3, Vitamin D (1000iu), NAC (500mg) with ALA (600mg), L-Carnitine (1600mg), Prenatal with folate, Pycnogenol (200mg) & Theracumin (60mg). I think the supplements need to be different given your underlying issues. For me I have problems with egg quality, DOR, inflammation/endometriosis and naturally high estrogen, so these are tailored to my body. Highly recommend working with a naturopath who understands what may be right for your specific condition :)
