Hi !
My first thread ! Looking for some advice really in terms of supplements ! I had my app today and will be starting my first cycle of ivf next month starting with the nasel spray , apart from folic acid what supplements at this stage do others take or recommend as doctor only said folic acid ! Xx

I've been to an acupuncture fertility specialist and she said vit D, omega 3, Coenzyme q 10 but that's for trying naturally without ivf so don't know if that's any help. Hope it all goes well

Hi mullo i will be doing my second round of ICSI next month, i start off with the nasal spray too, Synarel!
For my first cycle i took pregnacare conception and had been taking it for a long time previously.
This time i felt i wanted to do more as last time failed so i did some research and i now take ubiquinol, vit c, vit e, vit d, zinc, folic acid, and omega 3 in addition to the pregnacare! Hoping it might give my body an extra boost!
Got my DH on vitamins too as we have MFI

Thank you both , I started acupuncture have my second session this week ! @hope2409 good luck for your cycle , have you had the spray before ? What are the side effects xx

Thank you. Yes i had the Synarel spray last time, it can give you bad headaches, especially if you don't drink enough as it dehydrates the body, i was drinking about 3 litres of water a day sometimes more! Other than that its not too bad, i felt quite drained and didnt sleep well for the first week or so but it was hard to tell if it was the spray or just the emotion of it all! Everyone reacts differently tho so just look after yourself xxx
