new at this ttc and 40...

Postby moomoo30 » Thu Jul 03, 2014 9:35 am

Hi I was wondering if there are any vitamins I can take to try and up my chances of conceiving. I'm 40 years old still have regular 28day cycles. Just want to make sure my egg health is 100% and im doing everything possible. I had my iud taken out two months ago and this was our first month trying and I dont think I am after a couple of pregnancy tests anda very weird bleed on the day I was supposed to start/could have been implantation. But not feeling it so pretty sure this month is a no. So if anyone has tried anything im game. Also heard of fertility blend sp-1 if that helps with anything or should I not bother since I still have normal periods.

@moomoo - I responded here, didn't want you to have to play ping pong juggling both posts :)

I have heard of the raspberry red leaf tea, but the others that you mentioned are foreign to me, I guess I got some researching to do!!

@newtobabydancing - Hi and good luck to you

Yeah I wasn't sure if anyone here has tried any of those. I dont have a problem ovulating I just wanna make sure my eggs are in as good condition as possible and it seems like alot of it has to do with ovulation. So not sure...

After my mmc the doc said it all comes down to egg quality "at my age" but I have read so much about women my age and older going on to have babies that Im not about to give up hope anytime soon

I did TCM and acupuncture. I tried for nearly 1.5 years and got pregnant with first cycle of acupuncture. Sadly I miscarried. I took a month off and after 2 more cycles of acupuncture and herbs conceived again. I am 41.

Traditional Chinese Medicine. My practitioner assesses needs by looking at tongue and pulse and gives herbs and acupuncture to suit.

I have been on a daily D3 supplement (2000iu soft gel) for the past 2 years. I added prenatal vitamins for 6mo prior to TTC. Once we started trying, I added CoQ10 (100-200mg/d) to aid egg health, and an Omega-3 supplement with high levels of DHA. I also altered diet to a more alkaline diet (more fruits/veggies, lots of salads and avocados, less empty carbs (white bread, pasta, white rice), limited dairy, more fish, almonds, etc). I didn't add any of the herbal supplements as I'd read a lot of conflicting reports on them. Got my bfp on our 3rd month trying. Quit taking the CoQ10 as soon as we got a positive result. Am still taking the Omega-3...
