Stamino gro - Melatonin and trying for a baby ?
Hi, my husband and i have been trying for about 2 months after I had the loop removed in May. We have been taking Staminogro since June but have noted that we both have awful dreams and vivd nightmares (which I have heard is common in others that have taken Staminogro). To help me sleep during the night un interrupted I have been taking 1 Melatonin tablet (just for the past 2 nights) which has helped so much - HOWEVER - I did a little research today and I believe if you are trying to conceive you should avoid meltonin all together !! I am horrified, and we are trying again from tomorrow as I am ovulating but wonder if this will have any major effect on us trying to conceive ? If anyone could give me some info I would be very grateful Thanks !!!!!

I think that you are right and melatonin can have effects on hormones and conception. This does not mean that it is absolute. Try anyway.
