This answer was rated:

Hi, I am about to start my IVF process and am still taking food supplements at the moment, namely the following:
- Fish Oil (Omega 3, 2000 mg)
- Magnesium (500 mg)
- Acidophilus (20 billion)
- CoQ10 (200 mg)
- Valerian root (500 mg, not every day, only occasionally)
- Myo-Inositol
- Folic Acid
- Vitamin B12
- Vitamin D3
- Sea Kelp (Iodine, 2000 mg)Do I have to stop any of those or all of them once I start the injections?
