I am sure this has been asked so I apologize in advance...

What vitamins are you taking? I have been reading about Coq10 but I don't know what else to take or how much.

What diet are you following? Has anyone had any improvements with following a Paleo or gluten free lifestyle change?

Thanks so much!

We have a grad who did all kinds of treatments that failed, but she got pregnant twice naturally while doing the Whole30 (strict Paleo). I'll see if I can find her post about it.

ETA: Here is her post about it: http://www.justmommies.com/forums/f7...n-and-fsh.html

I cannot vouch for how it affects fertility, but it has made a huge difference for DH and I in our energy level and how we feel. I can honestly say I don't even miss pasta.

I agree with Melissa! I have felt better since starting all my supplements!
When I thought my FSH was higher I started a bunch of things and have been on them for a few months.
Blue-Green Algae, Spirulina, Royal Jelly, DIM (Diindolylmethane), Chlorella, Maca, CoQ10, prenatal, bcomplex, vitamin C, vitamin D, probitoics and baby asprin.

DH is on:
• Vit C (500-1500 mg/day)
• Vitamin E (400-800 i.u. per day)
• Zinc (15-60 mg/day)
• B-12 (10-100 mcg/day
• Selenium (100-200 mcg/day)
• Co-enzyme-Q10 (30-100 mg/day)
• Raw men's multi-vitamin
• Essential fatty acids (EFA)
• L-Arginine (2-4 g)
• Baby Asprin (80mg)
• Guaifenesin (100mg)
• Vitamin D3
• 25mg clomid daily
