Anybody using Fertility Blend or Fertilaid?
We just started using these this month. I am on the fertility blend and my husband started fertilaid. We have been TTC for almost 22 months now and all tests came back ok, so we fall into the unexplained category. :banghead: We are now seeing an RE about an hour and a half away as that is the closest, and I am scheduled for a laparoscopy on Feb 5th. We did 3 rounds of clomid about 9 months ago and haven't used anything since then except prenatals. I am staying super positive as I feel our time is coming soon, but was wondering if anyone has had any luck with either of these vitamins? :goodvibes: TIA ladies!

I know the main ingredient in Fertilaid is vitex, which I'm a big fan of. I just bu that plus some of the other supplements in there, since it's cheaper. But I'm sure vitex helped me get pg both times. I also took maca when I was having issues conceiving my DD. I'm doing both again now, so hopefully it will help again.

Hugs and babydust to you!

Re: Anybody using Fertility Blend or Fertilaid?
A lot of people think its best to eat it so I used to dissolve it in water and just chug it. Some people make smoothies. A lot of people don't think it tastes too bad but I think it's completely vile!!! So this time I'm taking capsules. Just make sure it's organic so you don't get any added metals, etc. I figure if we don't get pg for a while I'll go back to the powder but man, I can't stand the stuff! Part of how I knew I was pg last time was that I was in the TWW and very nearly vomited it all up after drinking it!

Maca is nasty. I never took it long enough to know if it helped with my long cycles or not.
I'm currently taking pre-conception tea and vitex in the morning, on an empty stomach (no issues so far).

Ya I've also been drinking Raspberry Leaf Tea leading up to ovulation...started drinking grapefruit juice as well starting on Monday, so hoping that helps too! Good lord, what else can I try!? LOL Best of luck!
