Time to become a med head…
Want to start this with an obvious warning. I am not a doctor or medical professional so this is just my recommendations for supplements. You should consult your medical professional before taking any of these.
I am a big fan of letting my body heal itself and find the human body and its power fascinating. But when it came time to prepare my body for the fertility journey I was 100% on board with supplements. I didn’t know where to start so luckily someone in One in Eight asked the question and the group chimed in. Here is the collective list of supplements most women take during their fertility journey. Some of these are good for trying to get pregnant and some are good for the IUI and IVF journey and quite frankly some are good to take all the time….I love you fish oil!
You may notice that Prenatal vitamins and Folic Acid are missing from my list! It is not because they are not the top two supplements you should be taking it is because I am about to give you a life hack that has saved me hundreds of $$$. Ask your OBGYN doctor to write you a prescription for prenatal vitamins as well as folic acid. I calculated that I would have paid around $50 a month for just these two supplements and with the prescription I pay 96 cents for folic acid and $2.96 for prenatal vitamins. No reason to spend any more $ than you have too. They can easily write this script when you are trying to conceive.
