Peter

I am due my first FET on a natural cycle tomorro am - I have had 2 IVF cycles. ET is tomorrow. ;D
Like many I am sure I have been banning coffee, alcohol, etc and am taking vitamins - zinc,pronatal multi vit with exra folic acid, selenium ace, vitamin e and fish oil. I have read conflicting reports regarding particularly Fish oil and selenium - I am assuming because of the vitamin A in them. Whilst I realize it would probably take a vast amount to have an effect rahter than the piddly amount in these do I need to stop taking them post ET.
My diet by the way is not perfect but is pretty healthy.
Thanks for your help

Just to pop on here, I take shed loads of vits, always have.

The main concern with fish oils is the vit a which is high in cod liver oil, if you take fish oils high in EPA and DHA with omega 3 fatty acids, then this gives you the fish oil benefit without the vit a which is not recommended for pregnancy. I am not an expert just well read on the subject of general health. Sounds if you're taking a good bunch, vit e is supposedly good for fertility.

Dear Tracey,

There is at present no convincing scientific evidence that any of these things help. A good balanced diet is more important including fresh veg and fruit. Tea and coffee in moderation and definitely no alcohol or smoking (including passive smoking).

Goos luck!

Thanks Peter and Jane

Just got back from FET and all went swimmingly if you pardon the pun - natural has been a breeze so now down to nature - had 9 frosties and first two they took out defrosted with no problems - they were both 2 cells but divided straight away - one to a 4 cell and another to a 3 cell.
so now we wait... thanks for the advice re the vits - will stop taking the selenium and fish oil.
