Hi, I'm new here. It seems to be good for support and info.

How do you enter the little text at the bottom of your message with the little info bit about yourself??  Anyways, I have been TTC for one year, MC last year.

I have been taking Zita West vitamins (for me and DH), Vit C, evening primrose oil, royal jelly. Also drinking wheatgrass. Am on accupuncture and reflexology. Am taking Chinese herbs too. Sometimes aromatheraphy oil massage on my belly. Also drinking a herbal tea like raspberry leaf or nettle everyday. How much herbal tea drinking are you drinking?

teehee, you name it, I'm doing it.

It just seems like I'm taking a zillion (maybe 8-10) pills. How many pills are you ladies popping. Could there be too much? I think I need to add Co enz10?

And how much herbs do you take? Could there be too much too? I have heard of Vitex, Milk Thistle helping. Haven't tried yet. 

Thank you!! let me know what you think...

The things we do just to have a successful pregnancy eh?!

Thank you for your reply. 

Glad to know I'm not the only one taking so many things!

Just learning my way around this site!  OK, I'll try to modify my profile.

I'm also taking a truckload of supplements, and I do sometimes wonder if it's too much.... but I feel pretty healthy, even if I'm not pregnant, so will carry on for the moment!

At the moment, I'm taking (probably forgotten something) a general TTC/pregnancy supplement, vitamin E, vitamin C, selenium, zinc, L-arginine, Co Q-10, flaxseed oil, bee pollen, spirulina, errr....  I'm having acupuncture as well but am not taking any Chinese herbs at present.

With herbs, certainly, you do need to be careful as they can have powerful effects.  It is probably best to seek advice from a qualified herbalist if in doubt.

Hi

Just following on from that, does anybody know if its ok for men to be taking Siberian Ginseng tablets along with the usual Marilyn Glenville Fertility Plus, Flaxseed Oil and Vit. C? Also, anybody had any good results with these or other herbs?

Thanks

Sarah

Hi Sarah

Both myself and dh took the Marilyn Glenville vits and also took Linseed oil and AGnus Castus.

We had male factor but I also have an elevating FSH.  2 failed ICSI's and we tried this route to boost our system for our 3rd attempt.

Worked  - with my successful pg (natural) and we now have our little miracle Josh.

Good luck hope the old herbs work again for all of you.

That's brilliant news - congratulations!

May I ask how long you did the Marilyn Glenville plan for before you became pregnant?

Also, how many mg of Agnus Castus did you take?  Do you think we should be taking that too? (I myself have no fertility problems but dp has a low sperm count, mobility etc).

Do you think its ok to take all of these together??

Thanks for the advice.

Sarah
