What supplements to take?

Postby KateG1616 » Mon Nov 05, 2012 2:01 pm

Hi Ladies!
After a couple of months of disapointing BFNs I have decided to start educating myself about some things I can do to help my fertility.
What are some supplements that you are taking? I have heard of Vitex, Maca root, coq10, fish oil, royal jelly, spirulina and probiotics.
Has anyone used these and had them help? I know there is also Fertility vitamins for women that are available that have some of these in it already...are there different brands that are better than others?
And I have also read alot about ladies using mucinex? Any advice on that?

I am reading all sorts of things on the internet and I would just like some real life advice from someone who has taken these things rather than just an article online.
Any help would be so appreciated!!!
Thanks!!

I was taking Vitex, fertilaid, vit B6 and red raspberry leaves and the first month I took all of these I got a BFP, I attribute it mainly to the vitex personally! Oh and evening primrose oil to increase fertile CM.

I have heard about mucinex I think this is the same as robtussin (sp?) which is supposed to 'loosen' up CM just like it does to colds but have never used it. Are you using opks or anything like that? I found charting helped a lot with me after a few crazy cycles it helped me to see when I definitely Od, even tho of course it cant tell you until after the event!!x

Fertilaid contains Vitex so I wouldn't suggest taking them together.

Fertilaid only has a very small amount of vitex so I think it's ok to take them together xx
