Hi Raptor

I just checked the first link. Do you think that my DH should take Lycopene from the start or that is something that a guy should wait till once a couples been trying for a while. We are TTC in June and wondering if I should buy it for DH.

Does your DH like tomatoes and products made from tomatoes? Tomatoes are chocked full of lycopene (here in the US a lot of products are starting to advertise lycopene content--Heinz ketchup does for one!). That would be the approach I recommend--anytime you can ingest something naturally, your body will absorb it better. I buy fresh tomatoes every week at the grocery store for my DH and fix tomato sauces, etc at least eight meals (breakfast, lunch and/or dinner) a week for him. Plus we eat Heinz ketchup like crazy!! I know you can get it in supplement form and if your DH doesn't like tomatoes I would recommend that. But, if he does like them, serve them to him often--another benefit is it really helps prevent and treat prostate cancer. When my granddad had prostate cancer three years ago, the Dr. put him on a tomato diet where he ate tomatoes with at least two meals almost every day. He's now cancer free so I would like to believe the lycopene had a little to do with that. Regardless of when you are TTC, lycopene is important for men. Start your DH on it today (either naturally or through supplements) and keep him on it.

Good luck!!
