I have DH on 5mg Melatonin (the real deal, not homeopathic). I put him on it as he does have a higher bmi despite being active.
The only things from that list he isn't on (when he does take them!) is Pumpkin seeds and Goji berries. We were going to do a cycle next month but it's being postponed until further notice my goal is to get him taking them regularly.
Nicole 83, can I ask how long you and DH were on melatonin for? I want to give it sufficient time to work but have read about the detrimental effects of being on it for extended periods?
I really wish I lived in Brisbane. We're in sydney and there doesn't seem to be anyone like Wazza here.
Bipsterboo, I work all around Australia and on my cycle that worked with Wazza I was in a mining camp in wa. Why not be a fly in fly out patient?

Lilypily - I'd consider it. I've had 2 unsuccessful cycles with my current FS. I'm having a consult with her soon but if she's not up for doing something different I will be looking for a new specialist. DS is 3.5 so that would make it tricky to FIFO. Would love to find a FS in sydney who was a bit less conservative and believes that supplements and alternative therapy can help.
Ngaiz - I'd really appreciate it. I've been trying to find out the melatonin protocol because I know my FS will just poopoo it. I think the issue with it is it can disturb the levels you naturally produce. Plus you can become dependent if it helps you get off to sleep. DH and I are not the best sleepers so that's why I'm a bit wary.
Thanks for the info guys. Been lurking for ages but finally decided to get involved.
Hi ladies, both dh and I were on 5mg every night starting in August then fell naturally in October, miscarried and took a few weeks off during that time then went back on it religiously in November right until egg pick up in late January.
I purchased mine, full strength, not homeopathic from an online health food shop in the USA. The tablets are literally under $10! Cos it is legal to buy them over the counter in the states. And we both felt the true effects from it getting a very restful sleep! I actually purchased majority of supps online in the one transaction - saved on shipping costs and what I paid was around $100 for everything and that is what melatonin costs from a compounding chemist in Bris for 100 tabs.
