How much EPO to take and when?

Postby corey4 » Mon Nov 14, 2011 6:44 am

OK I am cd 7 and I decided to finally start taking EPO because I dont get much ewcm. I know your supposed to start cd 1 but I'm gonna start now anyway, I dont think it will hurt.

So I "think" what I have are 1000mg. They are the spring valley ones from Wally but they dont say on the front. The nutrition label says 1,000 though.

So I've read that the TTC dose is anywhere from 1,000 to 3,000. How much do you ladies take if you take it and do you take it all at once or through out the day.

I take 3000 mgs all at once af-O. I also started a zinc supplement and have gotten more ewcm from the zinc than the EPO. I take both now.

I just bought some to try for this cycle.

The pills I have are 500 mg and you're supposed to take 2-3 capsules 2 x a day.... at the most, that would be 3,000 mg a day. I bought them at Costco and they also contain Vitamin E.

Haven't heard of Zinc helping with CM, so thanks for that tip!

I started using a Vitamin B super complex last cycle and really noticed an increase in wet and EWCM. Didn't get a BFP, but I felt better overall.

I'm going to keep on with the Vit B and add the EPO (plus the multivitamins I take, plus Vit D, plus Calcium Magnesium) :mrgreen:
