I came across NAC and fertility, specifically PCOS, and after researching lots I've started it as of yesterday! DH started it today. :-)

Since getting pregnant with my daughter I have had an over abundance of mucous in my head, like so much so I was throwing up every morning. It is disguesting! NAC is supposed to help with this too! I started it yesterday morning and this morning when I woke, no throwing up!!!! I'm so excited!! I hope it impacts fertility the same way but if not I'm still taking it just for that! :-)

Here are a couple articles-

I've read about the benefits of NAC in the Making Babies book, but haven't actually taken it. PCOS aside, I had no idea it did that much! Detoxing, excess mucous, etc.

Thanks for posting those articles, the first one especially is really interesting on all vitamins/supplements! :D

Did you see this link on TSH? https://sites.google.com/site/miscarriageresearch/thyroid-and-miscarriage/how-to-lower-tsh Very interesting! :-)

One particularly interesting segment-

"Aspirin + prednisone may boost fertility in women with autoimmune thyroiditis

The prevalence of anti-thyroid antibodies among euthyroid, infertile patients was 10.5%, similar to the one reported in euthyroid women between 18 and 45 years. Anti-thyroid antibodies positive patients who did not receive any adjuvant treatment showed significantly poorer ovarian responsiveness to stimulation and IVF results than controls. Anti-thyroid antibodies positive patients patients receiving levothyroxin responded better to ovarian stimulation, but had IVF results as poor as untreated anti-thyroid antibodies positive patients women. Patients receiving levothyroxin+aspirin+prednisolone had significantly higher pregnancy and implantation rates than untreated anti-thyroid antibodies positive patients patients (pregnancy 25.6% and implantation rate 17.7% vs. pregnancy 7.5% and implantation rate 4.7%, respectively), and overall IVF results comparable to patients without anti-thyroid antibodies (pregnancy 32.8% and implantation rate 19%). Conclusion: These observations suggest that euthyroid anti-thyroid antibodies positive patients undergoing IVF could have better outcome if given levothyroxin+aspirin+prednisolone as adjuvant treatment."
