Has anyone used Fertilaid? If so, any success?


I've researched a little bit about FertilAid and I was wondering if anyone has used it and had any success? Or anyone you know that has had success?

I was on it for about eight months.
Here is my honest opinion, if you are a female with actual issues this is really not going to do anything. Yes it does regulate your hormones a little bit due to the ingredients however a change in diet can do this as well. If there is real issues like PCOS or endo this will do nothing for you stick to a regular multivitamin. Unfortunately after years and years of trying everything under the sun I have to say in my opinion as a women the vitamins you take will have little affect on your fertility ... Unless you are diagnosed with low levels of vitamin b. I say take the normal vitamins and add extra folic acid which is recommended.

For men I found the motility booster did what it said it would do, but that is really it. Mens sperm issues can sometimes be fixed by different vitamins, so it is a great option for those with slightly lower numbers or lowere motility

But everyone will have a different experience so don't just go off of what I am saying.

supps work better for guys


Hi Megan, we looked at Fertilaid and Wellman Conception and after some research ended up taking the amitamin products so we didnt need to take 6 different pills.

I am with Myshelsong here: *good* supplements work especially for men - they increase the statistical quality of of their sperm and actually make them more fertile. For women it is different: for us the omega3 and folic acid is more making sure that the baseline is covered

Do not skimp buying cheap, useless supps. Good ones save you time and energy/anxiety.

This is what worked for us:

1. follow the usual tips on how you increase your chances http://human-fertility.com/simple-fertility-tips

then

2. Track your ovulation (both temperature and LH surge tracking). Drink less alcohol / more water, eat better, stop smoking, start yoga (both of you - you'll also have more fun doing)!

3. Go for it. Have BMS the night before ovulation, again in the morning AND at night on the actual ovulation day and again the morning after.

I got pregnant like this twice in the second half of my thirties. Yes, it is probabilities, but you can manage them, just like everything else in life. Good luck, Gabs

I used fertilaid starting about a month or a month and a half before I conceived. In addition to more vitex (fertilaid has vitex in it). I continued the vitex until I slowly weaned starting at 12 weeks. I think it was more the vitex than the fertilaid. I have PCOS and don't ovulate on my own and I ovulated and conceived so I have no complaints.
