Vitamin's for men?

Postby lreints » Wed Dec 07, 2011 12:25 pm

Can anyone share what kinds of vitamins you have your DH on? I'm going to get him on a vitamin regimen to increase count/motility. Thanks in advance!

DH usually just takes a men's multivitamin from Whole Foods, 1,000 mg L-arginine, 1,000 mg L-carnitine, 400 IU Vitamin E (helps sperm penetrate egg), and sometimes DHA since his morph was a bit borderline. He's also taken maca, but doesn't anymore. He complained about all the pills though and after a very bad count for our first IUI (SA was normal, IUI was bad) I switched him to FertilAid. His count went from 17 mil/mL in July to 95 mil/mL in September! Of course he also quit smoking in May, that may have had something to do with it, but it was still a huge jump! It's cheaper to buy all the vitamins separately since they last longer, but FertilAid is just 3 pills a day which is convenient for him.
