My doctor didnt recommend that, but my husband is taking multivitamins anyways. I read that zinc is important for men when TTC.

My DH has been taking multi-vitamins for a couple of years, so I think this should be enough.

However, I appreciated the suggestion you and others made that we should get a preconception check-up and a semen analysis. So we can better prepare ourselves for conception.

Thanks ladies!

I'm not sure what your situation is so regular multi-vitamins might be enough. Have you tried getting a semen analysis done?

We were told multi-vitamins can help but because we were dealing with a low count my DH's reversal doctor recommended he take Proceptin.

Good luck to you!!

The name is either ProFertility or ProFertil.
We bought it at the fertility clinic we went. We had the go through the though road for me to get pregnant. We're quite happy it worked (at the second IVF try).

However, as my husband pointed out, it is possible a multivitamin for men be enough. Here's a website I found talking about vitamins that can help men fertility. It also gives the amounts required.

You could also ask your doctor or pharmacist to see which vitamins are needed.

I hope that will help you!

Thank you for your recommendation, JADZIA.

Where can I find more information on ProFertility? I googled it but could not find the company website. Your assistance will be much appreciated.

My physician recently told me that my husband should consider taking prenatal vitamins. I was surprised to hear this. I am wondering if anyone else here was recommended this as well. If anyone's hubby has taken prenatal vitamins, which product would you recommend?

Thanks so much in advance!
