    Fine to do 2 spoons of myo AF-O and then 1 O-AF. Do wean off it gradually though at BFP, don't just drop it suddenly even at the 1 spoonful

    I don't personally think you are always or even usually more fertile after a miscarriage (like I said in the other thread, I am skeptical of that claim as I've not observed it to be true) I think that is most likely a comforting fiction/twisting of the facts doctors tell people so they don't despair after a loss. It is based on the idea that women who DON'T get pregnant quickly after a loss sometimes have trouble conceiving, but this doesn't mean that then the women who do get pregnant quickly are somehow more fertile than normal. There has been very little study done about that. It ~may~ be that some people hyperovulate due to still having some hormones in their system, or that possibly there might be a higher quality egg, but at the same time, many people will not have a regular cycle and it may be harder for sperm to meet egg as well (due to poorer quality EWCM). We just don't know because unfortunately doctors seem to prefer just saying the same old things they've always said rather than ever doing any new investigations into things like this. :/

    Has your doctor given you the clearance to try with the first cycle or does s/he want you to wait?

    Ill stick with Asda omega 3 basically 477 fish oil 200 dha? Instead of 1000mg fish oil 180/120 dha/epa???? Opinions?

    Also, drs havent said much as to be really blunt i had an attempt on my life monday morning and so its all been about me. Everytime i laugh (like this afternoon) i feel guilt such imense guilt.

    Hi atomic to add is there anything at all i can add to help my egg quality? Anything?
    Im reading about DHEA or melatonin as a supplement??
    Im very dupious of continuing coq10 @ 300mg considering my egg was clearly a dud. It feels like i need to put more effort in.. i was taking 2 tbspoons myo as well so im really not sure what to do!
    To add in my miscarriage report at 7+6 my lining was 15.1mm thick and E something (googled and means progesterone producer) was on left.
    I keep passing big lumps of clots now, i have to pull it out. I know its not baby as scan sunday they couldnt see anything at all. It was thick, stick and like how id imagine muscle to feel and look if you sliced it off

    Oh gosh I'm so sorry to hear that - what a terrible couple weeks for you!

    I prefer the lower dose fish oil daily OR the 1000 every other day.

    sofkay, I promise, there is nothing that we can take to fix egg quality really. I know people say there is, but they are just trying to placate people and/or sell vitamins. Some of these supplements ~may~ help slightly in an IVF cycle where a woman is trying to make 30 eggs at once. But for the average person trying for a natural conception they just don't do anything and most of them carry risks and side effects that are in many if not practically all cases, worse than nothing.

    If there was any magic pill I could give you guys to prevent losses we would all already be taking it (as would the millions of women who have infertility problems). People take all these supplements and many more and have losses still, unfortunately.

    It is NOT clear that this was a problem with your egg quality. As I mentioned this could be a problem with egg, sperm, or the way they combined, but it could also have been a problem where the baby implanted in a poor spot (like on the cervix, I had a miscarriage due to that reason) or immune issues or thyroid issues or a low grade infection or a host of other things. We just can't know, and even if if it was a bum egg, that doesn't mean that the vast majority of other eggs you have are still perfectly good (and in fact given your age they almost certainly ARE!) Tons and tons and tons of women have had losses with their first pregnancy and gone on to have normal pregnancies, doing nothing any different, not taking any of these things.

    PLEASE do not take DHEA. Given your age there is practically ZERO chance you are low in DHEA (that only happens after 40 and in many cases not even then) and taking it when you don't need to take it will give you a kind of PCOS since it raises your testosterone levels. This in turn raises blood sugar and high testosterone and high blood sugar is very harmful for your eggs. So in trying to fix a problem that probably isn't even there (assuming you have egg quality problems when you most likely don't) you would actually create what you fear - reducing your egg quality in a misguided attempt to fix it.

    PLEASE do not take melatonin. While melatonin was shown in a couple studies to possibly help with egg quality IN IVF ROUNDS, melatonin has been proven to cause developmental delays when the melatonin supplements are used during pregnancy. And since melatonin is something the body makes naturally and uses during early pregnancy, stopping it suddenly may actually TRIGGER a miscarriage (because your body is used to high levels and then those levels drop sharply). The ONLY people who can take melatonin are people doing IVF where they will freeze their eggs/embryos and not be pregnant in the same month their eggs are retrieved. This is because they can gradually wean off melatonin because they're not pregnant. If you are going to be pregnant in the same month you've taken melatonin it is a terrible idea to take it at all, because you can't drop it suddenly (could trigger miscarriage) and you can't wean off it either because you'll be taking it during pregnancy and may harm your baby's development! And none of us know how long those effects last so even if you weaned off quickly, the melatonin may stay in your body for some time after and could harm the baby.

    And again, at your age it's very unlikely you need it at all anyway. You create a real problem trying to fix a problem that very likely isn't real.

    The best thing you could do is eat a lower carb, higher protein, higher healthy fat (but not SUPER low carb) diet like South Beach or Perfect Health Diet. Even this is in no way a magic bullet, but it may help a little (and is better proven than any supplement.)

    You can continue coq10 and myoinositol. They are not a magic bullet that prevents any problem in a pregnancy. They ~may~ help a little, but there are no supplements in existence that can prevent all issues with a pregnancy. It just isn't how it works. I wish it was, but it just isn't. I am not at all sold on either one if you prefer to drop them. I don't think they caused your loss, and nor do I think they prevent most, if any losses either.

    It's normal to have large clots but please keep an eye on it, if they are huge like lemon sized, you have a temp, any strange vaginal discharge (you will know it when you see it, it will be the wrong color and smell really bad) or the bleeding shifts into high gear go back in to the doctor (even the ER) and get it checked.
