Should wheatgrass & fish oil be stopped once stimming starts?


I'm on my second IVF, hoping for baby #3.  I've been taking wheatgrass & fish oil, and am due to start my jabs of puregon tonight.  I've read conflicting views on whether these supplements should be continued once stimming starts, and wondered if anyone can shed any light on this?  Or, has anyone used supplements during the stimming process and had good follie numbers?  Any response welcomed!!!

I don't know anything about the wheatgrass but my RE had my on fish oil during all of my cycles, including the most recent with IVF and I'm now 12 weeks pregnant, and still taking fish oil... along with my prenatals of course. I'd ask your RE.

I don't see how wheat grass can hurt. It's just like eating salad, right?

Well, I wrote down on my consent form that I take wheatgrass and fish oil, and nothing was said about me stopping them.  Some people say the wheatgrass can interfere with the FSH drugs, but I don't know.  I've been taking them for about five months, so if they were going to have any positive affect, I'm sure they would, regardless of whether I now stop taking them.  Thanks for your replies:0)
