My RE prescribed vitamin D at my intake without even checking my levels. It’s their standard protocol for every patient because they see a link .. even without the blood work because so many people are deficient and the “normal” range is so wide that it’s safe to take supplements until their patients do get checked. I take 2000iu a day and after 3mos when I finally did do that bloodwork (because I took my time before we started cycling) my levels were still just under normal range. I say go for it!!

My vit D level was right on the border line of low, i think about 28 so I added extra 1000iu on top of my daily prenatal 3 months before my 4th ivf cycle.  It was one of many changes to that cycle, so I can’t say for certain if the Vit D specifically helped, but it did end up to finally be my successful one.  My theory was that as long as it can’t hurt, I was willing to take anything that *might* help.

JMer711:  my RE also advises a Vitamin D supplement before checking levels. I don’t think there is a harm in it 🙂

My vitamin d levels were rock bottom (like, single digits)…but I only found out at my blood test to confirm pregnancy. We got pregnant first attempt. I was told to take 3000iu throughout pregnancy, on top of my prenatal.

It’s a pretty common deficiency, even in Australia, so taking a supplement can’t hurt. If you’re really concerned ask your doctor for a blood test.

JMer711:  hmm…interesting. Commenting to follow.

At the beginning of cycle 3, CD9 myself, and have noticed that my LP may be a little short. I’ve felt O pains on Feb 23rd and March 23rd and both times AF arrived 11 days later. I’ve started taking B50 complex as I’ve heard it can lengthen LP.

JMer711:  I just added Vitamin D to my daily medicine.  There is 400IUI of it in my prenatal.  I think the D3 I bought is 1500 or 2000IUI. I did a little research before starting it, and it seems that it’s pretty common to have a deficieny of it because it is difficult to get enough from food alone.  I would say that adding it wouldn’t hurt anything at all! I probably wouldn’t take 5000IUI of it–that just sounds like alot!

My RE had all patients on 2000iu D3, she never tested anyone. I live in the Northeast where apparently the vast majority of people are deficient. Makes sense. I took that plus the prenatal.

JMer711:  just looked back at my paperwork, she wrote down 5000. I think the pills I found were 4000

JMer711:  My fertility doctor has me on 2000 iu of Vitamin D per day. There for sure is a connection there!

I take a 2000iu daily with my prenatal (Im now 23w pregnant). My deficiency was detected a few months into TTC last May/June and we finally conceived in November! I think its very helpful to keep your levels up for you and any potential baby!

JMer711:  I’ve been taking 2000IU/day since the beginning of last year. I take “Ddrops” since it’s one less pill to take. I had expressed a concern to my doctor that some studies showed a link between early recurring miscarriages and being deficient in vitamin D. He agreed and said most of the population is vitamin D deficient and that it wouldn’t hurt to take the supplement. I’m currently on my third pregnancy (first two were losses) in my 21st week and this is the furthest I’ve gotten.

I started taking some supplements last week including 2000 IU/Day of Vitamin D. Did some research when deciding what to take and that seems pretty common.
