I’m on a ton of supplements, but again, under the supervision of my naturopath. Just because they are ‘natural’ doesn’t mean they are harmless, so I would definitely recommend checking it out with a doctor before you start taking things.

I take:

– evening primrose oil, cod liver oil, pumpkin, flax, chia and sesame seeds, inositol, homeopathic drops, a prenatal vitamin, a B6 supplement, chromium, and vitamin D. I also have PCOS and fibromyalgia, so the list is pretty long.

@dodgercpkl:  I eat paleo and try to live kind of “paleo” as well, meaning I try to avoid unnatural products in my day-to-day life (so skincare, cosmetics, shampoos etc.). I started reading a lot of paleo TTC info and that was when I learned about folate vs. folic acid. I think it was probably in this article that I first read about it.

What am I not taking should be the question! I am also under the care of a naturopath.

  • FertilAid for Women (3xday)
  • FertilCM (3xday)
  • 250 mg B6 (2xday)
  • Super B Complex
  • Magnesium
  • Evening Primrose (2xday CD1-O)
  • Flax Seed Oil (2x day O-end of cycle)
  • Vitamin D
  • Royal Jelly (3xday)
  • Guifenisin (2xday CD1-O)

I get everything (i mean everything) in a capsule form- including B6 (which in tablet form makes me gag)  I find capsules and taking on a full stomach makes it all easier to stomach.

@ilovestripes:  You betcha!!! =)

I take maca root before O because it definitely seems to get my drive going. We both take it, because, as you know, BD’ing day after day can get tiring! I dunno if it really works or I just think it works, either way whatever it takes to keep going.

I take royal jelly before O because it increases my CM like A LOT. It makes the changes in my CM sooo much more clear, I can REALLY see a difference in watery vs sticky vs eggwhite.

I feel like I get enough of the B vitamins with my prenatal, so I only take the B-complex on occasion just because. No real reason.

I take Bromelain immediately after O because other than implantation, I don’t need any other benefits it has to offer.

I also only drink green tea before ovulation. It, too, helps with CM. I don’t have low CM or anything, but I feel like the more the merrier. HAHAHA. How’s that for a visual? It is thought that the tannic acid in green tea inhibits implantation, so while I love green tea, I am just fearful that it will hurt implantation in some way, even though it’s probably a bunch of crap. Haha.

Like I said though, I think I take way too much and would like to decrease them with time.
