What to Know About CoQ10 During Pregnancy

Being pregnant is an incredibly special and exciting experience, but it can also be overwhelming and come with its own set of challenges. Managing your health during pregnancy is of the utmost importance, and one of the ways to do this is by carefully considering what supplements you take. CoQ10 is one such supplement, and I recently chose to take it during my pregnancy. In this blog post, I will share my experience with taking CoQ10 while pregnant, including why I decided to take it, what any potential risks are, and the results I have seen. I hope this post can give any expecting mothers a better understanding of CoQ10, and provide them with the information they need to make an educated decision about whether or not it is the right supplement for them.

Should you continue to take CoQ10 when pregnant?

Coenzyme Q10 supplementation may enhance egg quality and even fertility treatment in some cases, in addition to protecting cells from free radical damage and supporting metabolic function. As soon as you find out you are pregnant, we advise stopping your CoQ10 supplements UNTIL you have a conversation with your doctor about continuing them.

    Nutritional supplements that should not be continued into pregnancy:

    DIM supports the body in metabolizing estrogen. It is not recommended for use during pregnancy or lactation.

    If estrogen dominance was a problem for you before becoming pregnant, consuming 1-2 tablespoons of freshly ground flaxseed daily while pregnant is a fantastic alternative for maintaining support for estrogen metabolism.

    Because it may increase the risk of bleeding during pregnancy, this amino acid is not advised. It is also not suggested for use during lactation. L-Arginine is best taken in preparation for pregnancy.

    Its safety for use in conjunction with antioxidants in preventing preeclampsia for women with a history of preeclampsia due to nutritional deficiencies has been demonstrated by research published in the British Medical Journal. In this instance, a doctor’s supervision is required before using it.

    When pregnant, only take green food supplements that don’t contain any herbs or other nutrients that aren’t advised during pregnancy, like royal jelly. Because it contains some herbs that shouldn’t be used during pregnancy, our FertiliGreens is not advised for use during pregnancy. It is preferable to take pure spirulina powder or a nourishing herbal pregnancy infusion while pregnant.

    Antioxidant supplements shouldn’t be necessary to take during pregnancy. It is best to avoid foods that are classified as antioxidants because not all of them have been thoroughly researched for their safety during lactation or pregnancy. Some antioxidant blends contain medicinal herbs. Pregnancy and lactation should be avoided when using the majority of medicinal herbs. Antioxidant blends are best taken in preparation for pregnancy.

    Vitamins A, E, and other crucial antioxidants

    Very rarely, pregnant women have been found to have severe nutritional deficiencies. In those circumstances, a physician might advise the expectant mother to take an antioxidant combination.


    When should I stop taking CoQ10 during pregnancy?

    These supplements are generally not recommended for use during transfer, or the following transfer. It is important to stop the use of CoQ10 after transfer to avoid the development of fetus disorders or abnormalities.

    Does CoQ10 help fetal development?

    CoQ10 is a source of energy for the eggs, supporting both egg maturation and embryo quality. The energy contained within the egg supports embryo growth for the first 7 – 10 days of life, from the moment of fertilization through implantation.

    Can you take CoQ10 with a prenatal?

    Is it safe to take with prenatal vitamins?” The short answer to this question is that it’s safe, and I recommend that all of my patients take CoQ10 until they are done having babies.

    Should I take CoQ10 during two week wait?

    Many recommend stopping CoQ10 and other egg-quality supplements the day before egg retrieval, since the supplements are no longer needed. Others advise stopping when you get a positive pregnancy test, so that you can continue to benefit from the supplement if you end up needing to do another cycle.
