have you husband take 1,000 mg of Vitamin C daily. That should give the swimmers a boost.

Hey LeAnne,
I heard vitamin C is good i put my hubby on 1000mg. He does not have a problem but i heard it will boost anyway and right now after ttc#2 for 3 yrs we are trying just about anything... Good luck ttc#4. Baby dreams....

Vitamin E is supposed to help his swimmers move their butts a little faster. :o) and it's supposed to help women too. my dh and i both started taking vitamins C & E. Good luck! ***baby dust to all of us***

i just went to the grocery store and bought some vitamin E gel tabs (b/c they digest faster and easier)...i think they're like 500 or something...i didn't want to overload my system. Vitamin C you cant overload on-your body just takes what it needs and disposes the rest. i dont know about zinc though...if you're unsure, just tell a pharmacist your situation and ask him/her how much is safe to take. good luck!

Hey you guys, take it easy with the Vitamin C. You want to be very careful in the second half of your cycle. Make sure (if you are working with a RE) that your RE knows, if you aren't you may want to research it further. My IVF guy said that large doses of C (for the female) are not good post ovulation.

Quote "High doses of vitamin and mineral supplements can also harm a fetus. If you are taking megadoses of supplements, tell your doctor about them so he or she can determine whether you need to stop them before attempting to conceive." 1000 mg of c is a megadose.
