    Default Pre-natal vitamins for men?

    Has anybody put their man on vitamins when TTC? Has it helped? which ones have you used?

    DF was on menevit. I was on elevit. I guess it worked as we got UTD second month trying that ended in an mc sadly. But the very next cycle we got UTD again and are now 13weeks.

    So I can't compare not being on them, but that and reduced alcohol and caffeine was what we committed to. As well as charting and using OPKs.

    Good luck!!

    DH has minor issues with his sperm (he has a large number of abnormal ones) and his last two samples before using menevit were 1.1mill & 1.2mill good ones. 3 months after using menevit it was at 4.4mill good ones. At the very least it's increased the quality of his sperm.

    DH is on Menevit - Dr said to make sure to take for 3 months before TTC. Also it might be cheaper to get a mens multivitamin, just check out the ingredients on Menevit and compare with Swisse or Centrum. We haven't started TTC yet so don't know how effective it is.

    DH has been on Spermmax! Works like a charm to improve his sperm count

    Thanks everyone!

    Unfortunately I'm living in Germany at the moment and can't get any of those supplements except centrum (unless I pay a fortune in postage which I can't afford to do)...

    Will have to find a German product I think or just hope for the best.
