(Endo and the immune system do not have the best relationship so I am on quite a few meds to hopefully suppress the harmful components of my immune system).

  • Dexamethasone – immune system, implantation
  • Aspirin – uterine blood flow, decrease risk of clotting
  • Melatonin – egg quality
  • DHEA – egg quality, immune system
  • Omega 3 FA with HIGH content DHA – egg quality, immune system
  • Vitamin D – egg quality, immune system
  • Prenatals, Calcium, B complex, Docusate
