Baby Steps: Popping pills
Christine and her husband try taking vitamins to boost their chances of conceiving.Posted — Updated
The craziness over conceiving has calmed down in the Bowley household. My husband is still recovering from surgery and – in turn – we are waiting to find out if it had any effect on our ability to have a baby.
In the meantime, I’ve been reading up as much as I can. We’ve also been looking for other little ways to help our chances. The newest thing we are trying – vitamins.
For me, I’m just sticking to the basics: folic acid. I’ve had my own issues with the full-strength prenatal vitamins.
For my husband, we bought a fertility supplement for men. It has a combination of several components including: L-carnitine, Vitamin E and Coenzyme Q10. The biggest problem so far is actually getting him to remember to take them!
In our case, it was something we wanted to try. We spent less than $50 on a bottle that’s supposed to last about a month. That’s pennies compared to what we could be spending if we start looking at IVF or adoption. My husband is about to schedule another analysis appointment in the next few weeks. I’ll let you know if we notice a difference in the results!
