male fertility vitamins

Postby kitsapgirl » Thu Jun 26, 2014 4:28 pm

Has anyone's DH had any improvements in motility or morphology after taking fertility vitamins? I'm curious if they actually work. If so, how long did they take them before any improvements were seen? Thanks!

DH is on Vitamin C, Zinc, Folic Acid, and L-Carnitine. He's also on Clomid prescribed by his urologist. I'm not sure if it's the clomid or vitamins but in Janurary his motility was low and now it's normal. When we were TTC the first time everything was low, he took his vitamins and meds and within 3 months everything was normal. It takes about 3 months for any type of vitamins or medication to work.

Thanks! We just got our results today. He has to get another SA done, but I'll get him at least started on vitamins now. I bought them for him a while back, but he never remembered to take them. Maybe now that he has a good reason he will be better about it. Thank you for the info!

No problem! I got DH one of those plastic pill holders, the one that has Monday-Sunday on it. I fill it for him and that helps him remember to take them.

I have a couple of those. Maybe I'll fill one for him. I'll probably still have to remind him, although I'm pretty bad at taking my own, so not sure how well that will work! :roll:
