Taking coenzyme q10 while pregnant?

Not sure if I'm pregnant, AF 9 days late so fingers crossed, but not POAS yet (whole other thread discussing this before name change)

Anyway I've been taking Co q10 snake oil, should I stop in case I am up the duff?

And how important is it to change from conception vits to preg ones? I'm using boots own at the moment which don't have arginine or anything else dodgy.

I'm keeping on with levothyroxine as GP said that was important if preg.

Apologies for being so bloody superstitious about this I can't even type the word properly.

Any wisdom gratefully received

No one knows if taking coq10 when pregnant is safe. It has not been confirmed either way.
No need to worry about swapping vitamins provided you are not taking vitamin a.

Can't help with the q10 sorry but I'm going to carry on taking conception vitimins. I'd just stocked up on 3 months worth then got my BFP so not going to waste them! I'm sure they're fine.

Oh and fx for you!

Thanks moonlight and delilah.

I'm sure q10 is fine but if I believed in its power enough to take it then I should believe in it enough to stop taking it now, even though it just gives cells more energy?! I don't know. So much superstition around this all...

I might go back to the egg quality book to check and report back. Though then I'll have to avoid tupperware and cakes again sad
