This is my first post and I am new here.
I am 40 years old (I turned 40 in March) I started my first injection this morning (I am doing an IVF cycle through Olive in Vancouver).
My husband and I originally went to Olive in March this year at which time hubby told me he wasn't comfortable with IVF. I was beyond devastated and because I thought we weren't going through with it I stopped taking my vitamins. And I stopped going to acupuncture.
A WEEK ago we changed our minds. I am 40 I have a low egg count and the door isn't just closing it is slamming shut in my face so I figure with or without vitamin prep it is better to roll the dice and try now. If this cycle doesn't work I can try one more cycle.
I think I continued with COq10 (Thorne Q-100) after briefly stopping in March only because I noticed some benefits in my skin. However I was not taking nearly enough (600 mg a day like I should have been) I was only getting at most 200mg a day. This is because I didn't realize the vitamin that I thought was all Coq10 was only partially made of the supplement. It had some other additives in it, that I didn't realize until I double checked the label on the bottle yesterday. I have since got proper Coq10 vitamins and I am taking them as I should have been.
My diet is pretty good we juice green vegetables in the morning and I eat a well rounded diet but not alot of meat. I know it sounds like I am a little panicked but that is because I am! I am really mad at myself. Can anyone give me any reassurance? Thanks
