Male Fertility vitamins?

Hi everyone.

Consultant suggested Proxeed Plus. They're quite pricey (£40 a mnth if 1 sachet a day). They don't have amazing reviews on Amazon, and I feel clinic just picked a random brand (other people have been recommend different brands). No real consistency. I am hoping someone can advise what they take that works (I know it varies) and is at a reasonable price. Thank you.

We found the wellman conceptions ones to be really good, reasonably priced and can normally get them on 3 for 2 in boots! Currently on our first round of IVF and had 10 eggs collected on Thursday, then 9 out of the 10 eggs have fertilised - these must have helped my hubby in some way x

My OH used the pregnacare ones and got us some healthy embryos. Good luck xx

We used proxceed and they made no difference whatsoever. Definitely pricey. This time we used the wellman conception and a teaspoon of maca powder (stirred in to food) every day and had much more improvement.

Our clinic recommends condensyl but this is also pricey. Our clinic get the best overall results in the region though so I trust they know what they're on about.

We were told there was some evidence around these for sperm fragmentation and we had much better embryos 2nd time round after using it. Our issue was poor development between 3 and 5 days on our 1st round which is apparently often related to sperm issues as they take over at this point. We went from 1 morula on round 1 to 4 blastocysts round two. Hard to know if this made a difference but we believed it did. Didn't get a bfp either round but have now fallen pregnant naturally after 4 yrs ttc. We do wonder if the proxeed helped with that too! Xx

I'm sure I read the ingredients on the main two that have been mentioned on here and there didn't seem to be a huge difference and you can always buy anything extra that isn't included in the wellbeing ones

Proxeed is just a mixture of all the ingredients that contribute to male fertility - right from Selenium, Coenzyme Q10 to folic acid and vitamin C. I guess you can obtain the same by switching to selective diet. Maybe this page will help - I landed on this one a few days back kept it handy just in case if I could convince my SO for if need be.
