Hi All, I've seen this vitamin be talked about on here and was just wondering if you could give me some more information on it. I think I saw some people say it helped their husbands sperm count etc.

I've been trying to do some research but I'm not sure what I'd start Mr Meh on or which is the best one etc.

As background, we have MFI due to testicular cancer and radiotherapy treatment. We have a high dna fragmentation % too. I have no idea if CoQ10 will help or not!

Hi Meh

Weird, I have just posted about this on the male fertility thread! My DH takes it. He takes it as ubiquinol which is it in its raw form and easier for the body to absorb. Just checked with DH and he takes 300mg per day which is the equivalent of 60g of coenzyme q10. Hope this helps.

Unfortunately we've not seen any improvement yet but worth a try!

Sorry that should be 600mg

Thanks closephine can I ask where you got the ubiquinol from?

My dh takes
Ubiquinol (solgar 200mcg a day)
Vit c and zinc
Well man conception
Zits west vital dha
Spatone X1 sachet a day

We do not have MFI .....BUT all of our FET s failed we think due to poor embryo quality sad having 3 months on supplements and hopefully things will work next time
I'm also on so many supplements i rattle when I move !
Myo inositol
Vit b6
Vit d
Vit c and zinc
Folic acid
Ferrous fumarate

I highly recommend the book 'it starts with the egg' loads of info about supplements in it
