Take-aways

  • Antioxidants may be associated with an increased live birth rate for women with infertility. CoQ10 is among the most promising of the antioxidants studies.
  • Make sure your prenatal vitamin is formulated to support your IVF journey, with the right amounts of folate, B12, and vitamin D.
  • Men should take a prenatal too! Studies show that antioxidant supplementation in men improves live birth, clinical pregnancy rate, and sperm DNA fragmentation.
  • Myo-inositol is often recommended for patients with PCOS. This is because women with PCOS are often insulin resistant, and myo-inositol may improve insulin sensitivity and reduce insulin levels.
  • Make sure your prenatal contains the recommended 400 mcg of folate. If you are exposed to high levels of pollution, evidence suggests upping that amount with supplemental MTHF folate.
  • Some evidence suggests DHEA can improve IVF outcomes for women who have been diagnosed with DOR or POR.
