*** Royal Jelly - when should I stop taking it? *** HELP

I am about to start my second attempt of IVF although this time we are trying ICSI instead. I have been taking RJ for about 2 months, 2 a day, one in the morning and one in the evening - totals 1000mg.

Is it safe to carry on taking it or should I stop once I start stage one of injections and DR? I want to have the best chance of success (like us all) but I also do not want to mess any effect the injections may have. I asked at the hospital and they said that they could not advise me for legal reasons.

So girls, what would you do? Carry on??

Hi there. I personaly took 2 a dayup to stimms then 3 a day during stims. I stopped at ec.
My clinic were fine with this. I can not love RJ anymore if i tred. I truly believe it was responsible for my double egg count and thus my daughter

However you must consult with your clinic as they are all different and i would hate for you to go against their reccomendations. X

Thanks guys for your replies. I am really really confussed now. One says carry on and the other says stop. I really do not know what to do now. Anyone else can advise I would really appreaciate it.
I must say I am very tempted to carry it on until I start sims. I actually start DR on thursday and at the moment I am still taking 2 x day. Help......

I have already asked at the clinic and they said they could not advise me on natural therapies!
So that was a waste of time. Whats why am asking anyone else out there that has had the same experience.

Curly - You are probably going to get different answers from different people. I personaly would go with my gut. All i know is what I done & that you must'nt take them in pregnancy, thats why I stopped at EC.
Hopefuly someone else will be about soon but if it is different still it is just going to confuse you.
Why not google it & see what you get hon.

Good luck
