I've recently added fish oil to my regimen - both for general health and for possibly helping with TTC. I've had 3 miscarriages and no obvious problem except for hypothyroidism.. however that was being treated at the time of my last miscarriage so maybe there is something else.

I've read so much about the benefits of fish oil - helps with autoimmune issues, good source of bioavailable forms of omega 3s (EPA and DHA), might reduce NK cell activity and makes your blood thinner (not a good thing if you're already on blood thinners).

I do NOT take the fish oil that comes from the fish liver (cod liver oil) - it has high levels of vits A and D which could be toxic in high amounts and vit A is already in so many healthy foods.. but I do take a vit D supplement on the side because most of us are deficient and it's supposed to help with autoimmune issues which I suspect I have.

Anyone else take it?
