TTC while on Antibiotics and Evening Primrose Oil...?

I was prescribed Amoxicillan with potassium and something else in it because I have an inner ear infection but get yeast infections every time I take any kid of antibiotic. Is this going to interfere with TTC? Also, I started myself on EPO capsules 3 times a day. Anyone had any luck using it?

I used EPO for a few months, but was having a difficult time with frequent UTI's. The only difference in my life was the EPO so I stopped taking it. Afterwards, I did some research and found out that EPO causes uterine contractions and will cause an early miscarriage, so I threw it all away. Not trying to scare you just sharing what I found, take it for what it's worth :)

It shouldn't, but if you get yeast infections, you should start on a probiotic to prevent them especially since women are even more prone to yeast infections when pregnant. I used EPO and I did get pregnant the cycle I used it, however I am unsure if that had any effect on my conceiving.

That is true, however that is why you are supposed to stop taking it after you ovulate.
