Along with all of the other medications that are prescribed by the doctor, I and MH take a handful of other supplements. I used to be that person who put nothing in her body. I hated taking anything except for The Pill because I feared getting pregnant more than anything…how ironic.
But now I put almost anything in my body to help me get pregnant again. So in addition to the Letrozole, Ovidrel, and Prometrium, I take a host of other medications and vitamins that I hope gets my body to the point where it will conceive and carry a baby to full term.
- levothyroxine: to help my thyroid get to the perfect levels for conceiving
- Prenatal vitamin
- Vitamin D: I’m slightly deficient and so I take 2,000 IUs a day
- Vitamin B6 to help lengthen my LP and to reduce PMS symptoms
- Omega 3 supplements
- Vitamin B12: my acupuncturist gave it to me because of my thin uterine lining and light periods; she says it will help the blood in my body – I just started taking this one…
- Vitamin C
- Men’s daily vitamin
I can’t imagine adding anything more to this regimen. MH jokes that I should get my own shelf at our local drugstore. In spite of saying that I wouldn’t add to this list, I would if I knew it helped make our dreams for having a baby come true.
