so i have finaly convinced my hubby that he needs to start taking some kind of vitamins to help the process along since we have tried everything else except actual hormones and fertility specialists. so i am sure that at least a few of you ladies have put your hubbies on some type of vitamins during ttc. what would your recomend for me to have him take. i would prefer to make it 1 or 2 different pills at the most since he is not too keen on taking them in the first place. i was looking at GNC and they have a fertility blend for men, but he is worried that it might look fruity if someone were to know that he was taking male fertility vitamins. so a multi vitamin that happens to have some fertility helpers would be great.

Who's gonna know? The cashier at GNC? Just buy them for him, so he doesn't have to face the cashier. Sorry, I don't know anything about fertility blends, since we haven't gotten that far yet (we've only been trying for 6 months), but I bet Jeanette can tell ya.

I actually put dh on Centrum Silver, extra Zinc & a B&C mix. He actually has a rather high sperm count but the motility is only 46%. After an IUI we finally got our bfp. I have seen a lot of mixed opinions on the fertility blends... Never tried them ourselves though.

i was looking at centrum silver. i also found this mens multivitamin from vitamin lab that has a lot of the same ingrediants as most fertility blends.

Hey tish!! Dh wouldnt take anything for the life of him but after the last af came he asked what he could take..may have told u this already but he is taking flaxseed oil, a multivitamin and h__y goat (the vit and hg are from gnc) and Im not tryin to gross anyone out..but that freakin h__y goat(which is like a natural viagra) is dang impressive now! I know this is tmi, but he gets "upity" soo easy now! He had no problems with having an erection before, but the vitamin was just an extra lil hit for mojo, ..I just cant believe it!! lol!! Even he is shocked by it! We had s_x 3 times in one night...right after another!!!!!! I sound sooo weird!! lol! But seriously I LOVE THAT STUFF!!! =)

LOL Lin, yes I can tell ya!! HA! Ok....lemmme see.....Oh, I have noticed that the fertility blend at GNC has most everything he needs to take except for selenium and omegas, add those per the directions on the labels. So, if ya dont want to buy that "fertility" blend, then get a multi vitamin with all those things. let me list it-----Vitamin C, E, B6, B12, Zinc, L'Carnatine, L'Arganine, Ginko Biloba, Korean ginseng, Royal Jelly ( <---NOT a good idea if allergic to honey or bees ), maganese, flaxseed oil or borage oil for the Omega vitamins ( actually, we switched to an omega complex which has flax, borage and fish oils for ALL the omegas )...oh, and the h__y goat w/maca?....ahem...bravissimo!! ( my dh is 47 and couldnt keep up w/his younger Italian wife, it was a God-send! ) ....and remember, dont take anything without checking with doc, especially if other meds are taken for something else...and research research research!!! Its better to be informed about the vitamins or herbs to know if there are any known side effects or if reaction issues with other drugs/vitamins are possible......but, my dh is still taking the vitamins even though we are not actively TTC'ing at the moment, because he has noticed a difference in his energy level and overall well-being...and he has had no reactions to, or side effects with, anything he's taken. But, in fact this list of stuff was given by his doc who has knowledge of his medical history. So. There ya go! God bless and babydust!!

ok, i found a multi-v with all of the things that that jeanette mentioned as well as the selenium. except it doesn't have the h__y goat. but since my hubby is only 26 and he is quite easily aroused(tmi, but he wakes me up in the middle of the night ready) i don' t see not having that to be a problem. we go usually 2 times a day, some days maybe once or twice a week we skip, but then there are days that we go 3 or 4 times. and we have a 2 almost 3 year old. so it would probably be more if we had the time. i am a big fan of the hot and heavy quickie.

lol!! My s_xual appet_te is a lil more than my darling husbands..lol..hed probably be fine doing it once every two days, but im not :) He would do it everymorning, if Id let him wake me up at 6am but since I wont...lol..he started taking the h__y goat with dinner so by the time we are ready for bed..hes READY for bed...lmao!!

ln030905, you are too funny. my hubby would be trying to go at it all day if it weren't for the fact that we have to work around Mercie. but if he can get her to sit down and watch cartoons for 20 min. then he is dragging me, well not really dragging but..., to the bedroom. does the h__y goat work for woman as well? i think i might try some.

 

jeanette - April 12

Oh cool. my youngest daughter is named Merci!....actually Merciful, but we call her Merci. I think that does work for women too, but I dont need it, LOL!

 

LN030905 - April 12

I would imagin it would work for women...oh,well u see there that Jeanette said it does!! Tish, remember when I told you that a woman had said her daughters name was the same as yours? And that dh and I loved it..Jeanettes the one!! lol!! Small forum!! lol
