PCOS & Fertilaid Question

Postby AnE12 » Wed Dec 11, 2013 8:42 am

I am 33 and was just diagnosed with PCOS a couple months ago via blood work. Ive never really had painful periods or long periods. I do not have a normal cycle though and it's obvious I dont Ovulate. I was reading online about Fertilaid. Has anyone taken this before and did it work for them? Trying to figure out if its worth buying or not. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated! TIA

Hello

I don't have PCOS but I did invest in Fertilaid to try and regulate my cycles and ovulate sooner. Unfortunately it did nothing for me....and I took it religiously along with the Fertili Tea they sell on the Fairhaven website. My DH also took the men's formula with no luck. Everybody is different and it might work for you!

Good luck with whatever you try!

Well thats a bummer for you! I'm sorry. You know...when you read all yhe reviews its crazy how they all sound so reassuring. Sometimes makes me wonder if they are fake reviews just so you will buy the product. I hope more ppl respond tp this post with their outcomes. You know...real ppl lol thanks so much for replying! Wishing you tons of luck.

If Im not mistaken I think one of the ingredieents in Fertile aid is vitex which does help some women. I took vitex (before knowing I had PCOS) and it did nothing for me but make my cycles longer. Are you being treated for the PCOS? Personally I don't take anything over the counter without talking to my doctor first because as you said, you can never be sure if the reviews are fake and the product can end up doing more harm than good.
