Coq10

I've seen a lot of posts about this. Can someone tell me exactly what it does? I take prenatals but Im not sure how much that really aids in fertility besides creating a healthy environment for the baby. I was trying to see what my DH could do to help boost his fertility. He has 2 kids so obviously its possible lol but anything that helps things along would be good

One of my favorite topics!

CoQ10 is an oil-based enzyme which everyone's body already uses in the mitochondria (think cell battery). There are documented research studies in improving the motility of sperm in males taking the supplement upwards of 30%! And the males taking the supplement reverted back to their original motility after they stopped taking it (a pretty clear indication that this was the cause for the motility increase).

I can link you some research papers if you want, but I can tell you from experience that my DH's motility went from non-progressive 45% to progressive 74% by taking the CoQ10 (100mg) daily.

Does that answer your question?

It does! Thank you very much. I think I'll be getting some for him. Though I'd like to have him get an SA first. Do you know if you have to be trying for a certain amount of time before they do this or is this a test he can just ask for? Do most insurances cover it?

It really depends on how open your doctor is to testing and how pushy you can be... And, no, most insurance policies don't cover infertility testing/treatment...but double check your policy and, if you can't figure it out, call them! They have to tell you and that might honestly be faster.
