Women TTC take herbs to rectify for what they believe (or told by a dr or fertility tests, etc.) is the issue why they can not concieve naturally.
The follwoing websites may provide better information on herbs, but please
do your homework. I have seen women take certian herbs that have hurt their chances rather than help them.

You mentioned the folwoing herbs:
EPR ~ used to enhance the volume and quality of cervical fluids (cervical mucus, or CM). CM is essential to ensure the sperm can reach the egg.
If you produce a lot of EWCM at time of O this is not necessary. If you do not produce a lot of EWCM at time of O an alternative is to use Preseed (http://www.preseed.com
) when you BD instead of EPR or other supplements. Use only prior to O.
SOY ~ I've heard good and bad things about Soy so in my opinion (take it or leave it) I would stay away from this one.
Vitex ~ Vitex has been found to help normalize ovulation, improve a short luteal phase and reduce Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), all known fertility inhibitors.
This is another one I've heard mixed reviews about but I think mostly becuase women were taking it and had regular cycles to begin with.
Personally, I've taken so many different herbs (Maca, Fertile CM, green tea, red raspberry leaf tea, don quai, royal jelly) now I am taking daily a prenatal vitamin (highly recommended), Co Enzyme Q 10 600 mg daily (to improve egg quality due to my age), Omega 3 (to produce a healthy and regular menstrual cycle with minimal cramps and PMS symptoms), and Vitamin D3 (produce sex hormones and regulating cell growth). Lately, I have been going to an accupuncturist for 2 months, he has done wonders for AF. Sorry for the TMI but it is not as heavy, clotty and it is a brighter red (no an old red). I also have no more brown spotting prior to AF. I am working on getting AF to as close to a healthy 28 day cycle as possible; improving blood flow and building a healthier uterine lining.
If you do not already, research taking your morning temperature or BBT. I use Fertility Friend ~ http://www.fertilityfriend.com/ttc/
, to track my temps/meds/symptoms, etc. You can try it free for the first month but it helps to show when you have O'd, tracking your luteal phase and also if you decide to join ($45/year) it will tell you when is the best times to BD to conceive. Just a suggestion that I find really helpful for me.
