As mentioned in a previous post, I have been taking numerous vitamins and supplements to assist in my fertility.
When I received my stimulation programme from Liana the nurse at the Aevitas Clinic she informed me that the only supplements I were to take was folic acid and Vit B12. I then informed her of what I currently take, which is:
Vitamin E 1000iu
Bio Agnus cactus
Slow release magnesium
And asked whether it was ok for me to continue doing so. She replied saying she checked with Dr Hulme (not sure why not Prof Siebert as he is my doctor but anyway) and he advised that I stick to their programme and only take the folic acid and Vit B12.
This is the second specialist to give this advice as when I first went to see Dr Ramdeo in Durban, he laughed when I showed him all the tabs I’m taking and told me to stop immediately…..maybe I should have listened!
Why is it then when you research on the Internet they give you these long lists of vitamins and tablets to take that supposedly assist with fertility?
Confusing but I’ve decided to listen to the doctor this time and I’m going to follow their programme to a T.
