Fertility Supplements

If you’re having trouble conceiving then you’ll find yourself plunged into a world of advice about diet, exercise and techniques that can feel impossible to get to grips with. Medical advice wars with natural remedies, and in the no man’s land between them fall all sorts of products and services promising a solution.

It’s important to try and retain your critical faculties whenever someone offers a miracle cure to boost your fertility: not everything is 100% effective for everyone, and not everything will be successful in helping you get pregnant. That’s why it’s important to check on the results: if something promises to help you ovulate more frequently and regularly, using OvuSense to measure when you actually do ovulate will let you see if it’s helping.

We’re putting our focus on fertility supplements to see if they’re worth your time, and your money!

What are Fertility Supplements?

Your body needs vitamins and minerals to work properly – not just in the reproductive system but for everything you do. Going for a run without sufficient electrolytes will be just as difficult as trying to conceive without all the nutrients your body needs.

If you’re not getting enough of the right vitamins and minerals, either because they’re not in your diet, or because of some underlying health condition that prevents you absorbing them from your food as you should, then you might need a top up! This is what fertility supplements are: a package of all the important things for pregnancy that your body gets from food, bundled together to make sure you have everything you need!

Do They Work?

This is a more complicated question. They can be useful if, as described above, you’re not getting enough from your diet. But your first step should be to adjust your diet to try and ensure it’s healthy and well balanced, with plenty of green vegetables.

If you’re already getting enough vitamins and minerals, then taking fertility supplements will be a waste of time and money. Before you commit to this path, you should be talking to a doctor to help you pin down why you may be having trouble conceiving – and make sure you’re pursuing the right solution. If you decide that fertility supplements are what you need then you avoid addressing the real issue that’s stopping you getting pregnant and delaying your pregnancy!

On the other hand, if you are lacking in some of nutrients you need then these are a great, quick solution to top up your vitamin levels and set you on the path to pregnancy! The important thing is to make sure it’s the right solution for you.
