38 yrs old
TTC 8 months
2 early chemical miscarriages

Had my fertility appointment last week as Guys Hospital in London.

Doctor advised me to take Q10 supplements.

When I look online ubiquinol keeps coming up to, is it the same thing?

Who else takes these supplements? Do you stop when you are ovulating or pregnant?

Any success stories??

Hello smile

I believe ubiquinol is the form which is best absorbed or used by the body (usually costs a bit more). I bought some online. I stopped taking them as a precaution as I've been asked to start taking aspirin - I'd heard both can thin the blood so I didn't want to over-do it!

Sorry I can't help with any info about an outcome as I'm still trying...

Wow, ubiquinol is expensive!

Bought a 50 capsule jar from Wholefoods for £40+

HiLondonBerry I buy Solgar ubiquinol from Holland & Barretts, they are expensive, it's my third month taking them, after reading good things about them in "It starts with the egg". I'll be 38 this year, started ttc#1 Aug 2014, had an early mc nearly a year ago and nothing sincesad
Are you being referred for IVF?

Hi sakura03

Clinic won't give me NHS because I got pregnant (although it ended in miscarriage).

They recommend that I take Q10 along with Pregnacare Conception tablets.

Anybody else taking ubiquinol?

Since my mc in January I have been taking q10 (ubiqinine) in 200mg form (equivalent to about 100mg of ubiquinol. Be aware that unless it is specifically stated on the packaging, all the q10 is in ubiquinine form from Holland & Barrett (which is about half as effective). I started taking it after reading It Starts with the Egg. After 2-3 months I can't distinguish any side effects, I haven't conceived again, next I'm going to buy the 300mg ubiquinol from Amazon (180 tablets for £35).

Yes, Q10 is either ubiquinol or the less potent ubiquinine.

Is it safe to take ubiquinol during the 2 ww?
