Had meeting at IVF clinic yesterday and they said to take Pregnacare. They didn't mention Marilyn Glenville - Now not sure what to do for the best - Any suggestions. As you've probably guessed, nervous 1st timer!
hi we are also first timers at icsi,still waiting for word on treatment start date.
I have been taking pregnacare for the past 2 years as recomended by my GP. I have just heard about this marilyn Glenville for the first time.
Should we start it and where do i get it?
Hi I've just read about Marilyn too. We've just had our first failure at IVF using donor sperm & I thought I might give M a try. I did a quick website check & found details of her book & supplements just type her name Marilyn Glenville into say google & you should find it OK Good Luck
hiya elle, i bought the maralyn glenville Natural solutions to infertility and its really good i would reccomend it also have the vitamins too for both myself and for dp. send me a pm if you would like the site where i got them from
After two failed ICSI I got the book, read it and sent away for the vits (dh and I both took them).
I also took Agnus Castus (read about it in the book) due to my rising FSH levels. I thankfully have been one of the success stories and conceive naturally before going for our 3rd cycle (I decided to follow the regime and take her vits to boost out bods for the next cycle.)
I did try buying the vits through a local herbal shop but the strengths were not as good as the vits you but from MG herself.
Have just been reading your posts re: Marilyn Glenville and cost of vitamins etc. I have been taking the vits as recommended by her for the last 3 months but DIY-ing it. I have found that it can work out quite expensive to DIY it too so may be worth costing it out to see which is cheaper. I am considering buying her stuff from now on as I keep running out of different tablets and having to go shopping!
Now to get back to the point of my post, which was to share a money saving tip and tell you about 'Wellman' vitamins. I bought some for my DH from Tesco and they seem to contain all of the MG stuff (needed to up the vit C and zinc and add some flaxseed) but are only about £8 for a months' supply (as opposed to MG's £25). DH says they taste foul but when I told him he had the choice of that or going back to about 8 different tablets a day he soon shut up!
Just to let you know I've just found another website that does Dr Glenville fertility plus, its the same price as her site, but they do free p+p in the uk. Not much I know, but it all mounts up if you order monthly!
Its www.nutrient.co.uk. I've just ordered mine from there this time.
Hope you are well. DH and I went although we missed Marilyn's talk we did manage to chat to her afterwards! I asked her how she thought butrition contributed towards fertility and what she thought I should change in order to increase our chances. One of the things she told us that we didn't know was that vitamins only stay in your body for 6 hours so we should be eating frequently and/or taking vitamin supplements during the day. She also suggested some snacks that DH had during the day to increase his fertility ( brazil nuts etc and mini salads ). She also suggested I buy her book I will buy her book but I generally follow the advice of Zita West's book. I suppose another book can't hurt !
yes she said that snacking on vitamin dense food ( fruit, salad ) would ensure there was a steady stream of vitamins in the body. I also remember she said to drink a glass of water about 20 minutes before eating - she said this would help digestion and improve the bodys ability to use the vitamins. She confirmed that we should take vitamin pills after food. We are trying her suggestions so we'll see if they make any difference!
I definitely do the snacking on fruit/salad thing as i've always got stuff in work to nibble on so i avoid the chocolate machine
Me and d/h take our vits after tea so thats good and I also drink water before/with dinner. Thanks again
Hope you are ok xxx
We tried to get brazil nuts at christmas and was told by many places that they have now been banned due to the oils in the shell being harmful - have you been able to get hold of any since you were told this?
