Hi there, me and my dh have recently been put on ivf waiting list with the nhs (2 years ttc with no pregnancy) having undergone tests (i have scarring on one tube and dh has low motility) but a friend has suggested that in the meantime we take CoQ10 600mg tablets as her friend took them while undergoing IVF. Has anyone any experience of them? Should I take them on the reccomendation of a friend or are they the type of thing to only take if prescribed by the doc? Thanks

I took them while trying to conceive DC2 on clomid - not sure of the dosage tho. I did have a much better response to the clomid than I had done previously (I used it when trying to conceive DC1 too) and think the CoQ10 may have helped. Perhaps talk to your fertility specialist first if you can?

I tried them when ttc naturally (i now have 8 mo ds) as had issues with low ovarian reserve so nhs ivf not an option. I was also having almost annual mc's too. I'm not sure they helped as I was taking so many things to help egg quality and hormone balance. The things I think really helped me were vit d, zinc and high level b complex 50 mg. but I was taking coq10 .

Ive been recommended 200mg per day of coQ10 by Zita West clinic. I have low egg reserve so I assume that thought this would help!

I take this supplement because i read about it online but clinics, in general, do recommend that women who have low ovarian reserve to take Coq10. I take 200mg per day but I have heard that some take 600mg-8000mg per day!! It's one of those supplements that actually doesn't cause any harm at all. Not pregnant yet though grin
The only downside is the price. They are quite expensive.
