    Ok. Those are terrible. I would advise you to wean off those (don't just drop them, wean off gradually) and replace with something that does not have the following ingredients, which cause more harm than good:

    DO NOT TAKE:
    Ginseng
    Maca
    Carnitine
    Arginine
    More than 100% of Vitamin E (both of these have more than 100%)
    Massive doses of B vitamins (some of the B vitamins are 10X what you need and the B12 is crazy high in those)

    These things are either unsafe or may be negatively impacting your ability to conceive. I am happy to explain the whys on these if you want me to but they're all things I've either seen concerning information about, or actually seen them mess up people's bodies and interfere with their chances of conception.

    I WOULD PREFER YOU DIDN'T TAKE:

    Lycopene
    Citrus Bioflavonoids
    Pine Bark
    Octacosanol
    Glutathione

    We just don't have enough information on these to know if they could be affecting your ability to conceive negatively. As a general rule I recommend you guys just stick to about 100% of all the recommended Vitamins and minerals, a little higher on Vit. D and folic
    acid/folate, and then avoid all the extraneous things because you do not need them.

    Inositol may also impact a blue sway negatively but that's not a super high doses, you can continue with that.

    Re the letrozole, there's no need to stop, just wean back to the 2.5. It's your call to make, but generally speaking once you've started the medication, you're already incurring some of the risk and you may as well complete the dose (at a lower dose) and then you can still see some of the benefits.

    Your husband needs a sperm analysis. Many times when we have a couple just not conceiving for no logical reason, when the husband has had a sperm analysis his sperm health is off and that was what was causing the issue. Most of these issues we can fix with supplements and a few minor changes in lifestyle, so it's good to have one done if at all possible.

    When is your period coming in relation to when you think your ovulation is happening??

    Preseed should be ok on paper, but some people have reported that they feel it is impacting their rates of conception negatively. If you have a good amount of natural CM then you may want to just skip the Preseed and use that.

    Are you using guaifenesin to improve cervical mucus?

    My period comes 12 to 14 days after my ovulation.

    I never used guaifenesin, should I? What dosage?
    Ok I will start weaning off those supplements.

    Should I TTC this cycle or not? I’ll ovulate about 11 or 12 days from now give or take. If I have a higher chance now to conceive a girl than a boy then I’d rather skip this month.

    I don't generally advise people skipping months. I have a big article about that here: https://atomicsagebrush.substack.com...month/comments Long story short, for all we know, this is a great month for you to get a boy, and waiting will simply mean you end up trying in a month that is worse. Especially when you're having trouble conceiving, it's best not to wait for some ideal that may not ever arrive - because honestly, we don't even know what the ideal IS. We may skip months that were going to end in conception and a boy, in pursuit of sway tactics that may not be as great as we thought they were.

    Guaifenesin you should start about 5 days before you expect to ovulate and continue till 3 days after O. This is a "more or less" type of thing where you can start it a little early or a little late, and it's still ok. This will help you make more natural CM, so you can stop using the Preseed if you have any feeling it might be inhibiting conception. Again, it's not SUPPOSED to do that, and should help with conception, but some people have felt Preseed did prevent them from getting pregnant so it may be something for you to try without.

    I would definitely want to see some additional iron along with the Boots (for YOU, not DH, as men generally don't need iron)! But yes it's ok to use that and supplement with a little extra iron.

    I found this multivitamin for women I think it’s better for me, do you agree?

    https://www.centrum.co.uk/products/m...centrum-women/

    For Guaifenesin these are the two I could get today, do you think any of them would work or should I look for another one?

    Actually I got this one too https://www.benylin.co.uk/products/m...-flavour-syrup

    I think this is the most suitable, do you agree? What is the dosage I should be taking?

    The Centrum is great! Absolutely better.

    The Boots guaifenesin has paracetemol and should be avoided.

    I'm having a hard time getting the specific ingredients on the various Benylin products to come up. Some of them have many added ingredients: https://www.benylin.co.uk/why-choose...ve-ingredients So please check your label on the specific product before buying it. YOu want ONLY guaifenesin as active ingredient. The Glycerine and levomenthol are also probably ok. You should not be taking paracetemol, phenylephrine, diphenhydramine, pseudoephedrine, or dextromethorphan, all of which are in some Benylin products. Please be careful you're getting only guaifenesin rather than a blend of various medications.

    Perfect! Yes this one https://www.genderdreaming.com/forum...-flavour-syrup says on its leaflet that it has:
    Active Ingredient: Guaifenesin
    Other ingredients: sodium citrate, citric acid, monohydrate, carbomer, glycerol, ethanol, glucose, sucrose, sucralose, sodium benzoate (E2 11), caramel (E 150), flavours: honey, lemon, cooling, levomenthol, tingling, hot mix, enhancer and bitterness blocker and water.

    The regular dosage is 10 ml four times a day
    The medicine contains 100 mg Guaifenesin in each 5 ml.
    So if I go with the regular dose I would be taking 800 mg Guaifenesin everyday.
    Is this good?

    It's fine, anything up to 1200 mg is believed safe. I would probably start off with a lower dose (more like 400) to see what effect it has. Some people notice big changes with smallish doses and then it sort of plateaus, taking more doesn't really increase it much for them. Give it a whirl and see how much CM you make with a reasonable amount first and you can always up it if need be.
