    I researched melatonin for my dh (he had unknown cause mfi) and wazza agreed to trial him on it. Not only did I fall pg naturally while waiting to cycle (m/c at 6+2) I then fell pg on out next ivf cycle. There is a Japanese study suggesting it might help with men that have high fat and lazy lifestyles. I believe it worked for us.

    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?

    I don't believe that there would be any long term effects of Melatonin as it is a naturally occurring hormone in the body. But I can try and get some info if you wish from a pharmacy compounder I know.

    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.

    I was also concerned about long term effects but I didn't get any and as from my previous post we were on it for a while.

    I used www.vitasprings.com and found them reasonably priced and had majority of the supps.

    Just google for discount coupons before you process your order
