    Healthy as possible diet, prenatal vitamins (I use gummies as I can't stomach regular ones). Folic acid that's about all I can think of.

    Ive just started taking agnus castus and vitamin b complex,need to try and get some kind of regularity to my cycle, and I think I've got a short luteal phase at the moment. Still all settling down after breastfeeding my baby I think. Got both in holland and Barrett they sell everything in the strengths you need for it to make a difference. Tell you one thing about the vitamin b though, certainly does give you bit more energy! And yellow wee lol. Oh I'm also taking evening primrose oil, meant to give excellent cm! X

    i am returning my vitex as i have read mixed reviews and due to not having any blood tests from dr cause they all sya things will happen im not sure i wanna risk messing my cycle up.

    My cycle varies from 32 to 40 days, (ovulate anywhere from day 18 to 24) as far as Fertility friend is saying, and i only have my af for 2 days light but clotty a little and im scared if i take vitex it will make me have mid cycle bleeding or longer periods. so i think im gonna just take b vitamins and epo and see how i go, and go back on my diet as i found with last time as i lose weight my cycles become more regular

    My husband and I were not trying, not preventing for several months and never conceived after my first daughter. We did bd several times during ovulation- and nothing. So I started folic acid, fish oil, epo, and dong quai. Bam! Pregnant that month! I think donq quai really works. I concieved my first, the first month I started dong quai as well. I am like clock work- period every 28 days, lasting around 5 days, medium flow. Some just need a little boost and personally dong quai did it for me. Do what your gut tells you and start off slow. Good luck!

    Think it depends how much is in your complex maybe? Mine has 100mg of b6 and 100 of b12 along with the others. I think you need at least 50mg of each of these, so if your complex is low on b6 I think taking it together should be fine. Worried about the vitex now and if I could be doing more harm than good!!

    both my husband and i would like to know what are good foods to eat to boost fertility. I have heard Pineapple and asparagus. Is this true? Also please list any foods that will lower the fertility levels like fattning foods and lots of sweets. and what else should i know about food that will help and harm the fertility levels.
    thanks

    yea i took my vitex back and swapped for blackmores Phytolife.

    My vit b6 and b12 are no where near equal, the complex ones i got are cenovis
    b complex are b6 5mg, b12 10mcg

    and the natures own b6 is 100mg so im taking 105mg of b6 but only 10mcg of b12
    crap i read then that its nothing the b12, as mcg is heaps smaller

    mary are you sure the b12 reading was correct, as all the complex Bs i have picked up all say b12 is 10MCG not mg, mcg is nothing

    thats why im confused as my b6 is 100mg, and complex b says b12 is 10mcg and i read up last night about it,

    Ah yes I think you are right! It doesn't say 100mg lol it has a funny squiggly ug symbol so probably is 100mcg, thanks for the link x

    I have heard bad things about rasp tea, went to a specialist and they said it can trigger misscarrage as it softens the cervix too much, but heard good things about royal jelly x
