When we ttc dd, my dh took zinc; it may or may not have helped! We are hoping to start ttc dc2 soon; he currently takes a multi-vitamin and mineral which has the recommended daily amount of zinc in it - is this considered enough or should he take a separate one too? I guess we'll never know what helped us to conceive dd but I intend to try all the tricks again!( I drank a lot of grapefruit juice though I don't remember why!grin)
Anyone any ideas please?

Hi, I'm following Dr. Marilyn Glenville's recommendations for fertility and she recommends 30mg a day for men and women ttc. That means that I give my dh an extra 15mg tablet as his fertility one only has 15mg (sanatogen one I think?)Hope this helps smile
