Hi all I have a question, after my two failed ivf I was wondering if taking probiotics and zinc supplement could be harmful? my doctor said no, but I'm questioning everything at this point..

How much Zinc and how often was it taken? Recommended by a doctor? Zinc interferes with copper and Iron absorption i read.

Hi ! its 15mg twice a day at night. is that bad you think ? It was recommended by a dermatologist a while ago, I only told her I was trying to conceive not do ivf,

We live in the times that every word we say need to be backed up at molecular level, unfortunately i can't blame or say if it is good or bad. If i was you i would take something balanced or take a expert second opinion. From what i read it can seriously block copper uptake in to the body at doses more than recommended daily dose especially on a prolonged period. I do not know if such mineral deficiency can cause problems but so many things we don't know how it all affect normal fucntioning. I hope you had a thorough hormone level checks which can affect implantation and endometrial thickness.
