Our RE had my husband take a men’s multivitamin and CoQ10. She said CoQ10 would’ve been the most helpful there. Although we also did ICSI, so I don’t really know how much overall morphology matters, since they are using only a handful of sperm out of millions...

My husband took CoQ10, a multivitamin, and alpha lipoic acid for three months before a successful IUI. The "It Starts with the Egg" website has a good summary on recommended vitamins

I follow the same for my husband and I. In additional to the suggested vitamins I put him on zinc.

No supplements but avoided baths/high temps religiously, minimal alcohol, and ate loads more fruit and veg. Numbers increased across the board after a few months. Remember anything you do has to be several months out as the sperm now was born several months back!

Guy here. When we had our son I went to a clinic and got a low mobility, high abnormal unit count (cant remember the exact term). Very uninspiring diagnosis. Got home next day to a positive pregnancy test. I really don’t know how strong are the conclusions from this test on conception prospects.

I have a manager that does not seem to understand mental illnesses, disorders, etc. He thinks I am making excuses rather than trying to explain things (I have diagnosed ADHD, anxiety, and depression) and I’m trying to take ownership for issues but also help him understand what I am describing better as well. We are sitting down for a conversation later this week. Any advice on how to gently educate or help with his understanding of neurodivergence and other mental health considerations?

Looking for advice. My wife and I knew we had to go the surrogacy route to grow our family. However, recently we learned that we may also have to go the donor egg path. Although it is possible for my wife to extract her eggs, it would be an uncommon and low probability procedure. She seems fine with the kid not being genetically linked to her or looking like her. I feel selfish that for me genetically linked and similar looking children is important. Anyone with thoughts/experiences to share? Tx

Hi friends here… how long would you wait between FET cycles? I had a miscarriage (a few weeks only) in May from the FET, and my doctor said I could start a new FET cycle now that I have my period.
