Vitamin overload?

Since we are kind of in a holding pattern and I need to feel like I am doing of something I have been taking more vitamins. Every time I read that something could help with my progesterone levels or lining or aide in implantation or just help with fertility in general I am in! However at what point does it get a little crazy. Yes I know that I am already borderline cray cray but if it will help why not right? I take my extra stash of help around lunch and my prenatal vitamin before bed to space it you because I will just pee out the extra that isn't absorbed if I do it all at once. Are any of you cray cray's with supplementation? This is what I take below..

Vitamin C: Is told to increase fertility and the chance to get pregnant by 25%. It increases your progesterone level when taking 750mg/day. But don't take more than 1000mg/day because it will make your system more acidic which is unfriendly to sperm and is bad for implantation. More is not better.

Vitamin E:Increasing thickness in lining, reduction in miscarriage. Helps with glucose metabolism and insulin activity for PCOS and diabetes. Reduction of PMS symptoms. Healthy amniotic sac during pregnancy. 500mg/day. I have been taking pills but natural sources are what they recommend such as raw vegetable oils, nuts, nut butter, barley, green leafy vegetables, avocados, berries or tomatoes.

B6: hormone regulator. Regulates blood sugar, helps with PMS, morning sickness and luteal phase defect. Again, I take the pill but these foods help:  Tuna, banana, turkey, liver, salmon, cod, spinach, bell peppers, and turnip greens, collard greens, garlic, cauliflower, mustard greens, celery, cabbage, asparagus, broccoli, kale, Brussels sprouts, chard

L-Arginine: increases cervical mucous, enhance libido, increases orgasms (really excited about this one), regulates glucose, regulates blood pressure, increases energy, anti aging benefits,  healthy environment for implantation and help extend fertility with increase in age.  500mg/day

Musinex: increases cervical mucous

Prenatal vitamin

I will be adding extra extra Folic acid soon as well.

I'm extra crazy right? My husband would agree with you if you say yes.

Happy Tuesday friends!


  1. I think some time throughout this process, we all try anything that might help conceive. Heck I was even one of those people who ate pineapple core for implantation, lol. I guess as long as it doesn't hurt you, why not? You definitely can't go wrong on taking extra folic acid though.

    1. I was going to do the pineapple core next! Lol

  2. We did the same thing a while back but ended up abandoning that plan. Our RE didn't want us on so many things it just got too costly and overwhelming. But you never know, it might help!

    1. I am going to try it for a few months to see what it does. The reevaluate. I'm getting anxious!

  3. AHHH I just posted a post and it is gone! OOPs!
    Following now via the FB group we are both in!

  4. we too are on a ton of vitamins ;)
