Hiya, a friend of mine mentioned Zinc supplements for my husband while ttc, is there any truth in this and does anyone know exactly what they do? thanks!

It is very true - if he is nto getting enough zinc in his diet a lot of doc's recommend a zinc supplement - makes the little swimmers stronger and more motile (don't you just love that word?)

Theres a great multivitamin for TTC called Well Man that contains Zinc and all the other necessary vits for men. I got it for DH in boots(just incase :wink: ) last time round.

Hey MrsHawaii05, my h2b said the zinc definately helps but isn't a cure. He also finds Udo's oil very good. I hate the taste of it though :oops: Congrats on your little man, he's adorable!!!!!!!
