Just wondering what other supplements people take when TTC'ing? I know the obvious ones like folic acid and vitamin D but are there any others that you should take or ones you should avoid? I currently take evening primrose oil but I read somewhere you shouldn't take it when TTC'ing - anyone know anything for definite about that?

Other than my B6 I only take folic acid and Vitamin D, I think happy to be corrected but you can take evening primrose oil up until ovultion and then stop it after you have ovulated, Because it can cause contractions in your uterus
You are supposed to switch EPO with Flaxseed Oil once you O and take Flaxseed Oil to help with implantation from then on.

Hi. Folic acid every day if your bmi over 30 or you have chronic illnesses such as crohns etc you need the 5mg dose from your dr otherwise can just buy over the counter.
Epo should only be taken up to ovulation and not after it as there's risks to the foetus.
