In brief: No, but may help men
There is no evidence that women taking vitamin E have less vaginal infections or better fertility.
There is some evidence that vitamin E and other antioxidants (vitamin c, selenium) may improve sperm numbers or quality in infertile men. Sperm dna damage may also be reduced by vitamin e. Doses used in studies were between 200 to 1000 mg a day for men. It is not clear if it improves pregnancy rates.
