In brief: for fertile mucous
If you lack fertile cervical mucous taking epo 3, 000 mg a day form menstruation to ovulation may improve quality of mucous so the sperm can penetrate the cervix and survive.
If that is not the problem it wont help. Be sure to check to see if 25-oh vit d3 is adequate. Don't take epo after ovulation
