CoQ10 is an antioxidant that plays a role in energy production within cells and has been studied for its potential benefits in fertility and overall health. Some healthcare providers may recommend CoQ10 supplements for women trying to conceive due to its potential positive effects on egg quality and reproductive health.

However, during pregnancy, the emphasis shifts from fertility to supporting the development of the growing fetus. Your healthcare provider will consider your individual health, any pre-existing conditions, and your prenatal vitamin regimen when determining whether CoQ10 is necessary during the first trimester. They will weigh the potential benefits against any risks or interactions with other supplements or medications you may be taking.

In most cases, a prenatal vitamin will provide the essential nutrients needed during pregnancy. If your healthcare provider suggests continuing CoQ10, they will likely provide guidance on the appropriate dosage and monitor your overall prenatal supplement regimen to ensure it meets your specific needs.
