Thank you for the advice. I started cd1 today was debating whether to take the fertility blend this cycle. I have decided not to take them. I appreciate the help on this board wish i had asked before trying fertilityblend. Honestly i feel a little stupid for trying them.
This past month has been tough, i thought i would be pregnant by the holidays when we started trying last summer. Also two good friends just announced they are pregnant.
Don't. They do a fantastic job of making them sound like magic pills, but just like everything else- if it was that easy, wouldn't everyone be taking them and doctors would be suggesting them right off the bat? There are some women that do seem to have success with things like Vitex, but it's not a good choice for every woman. OTC doesn't mean perfect for everyone. That and herbs are not at all regulated and they can make any claims they want with zero research to back them.
If you go back and look at the reviews, a large number of them claim it helped within the first couple months. Those are nothing but a coincidence. It takes at least 3 months before you would see any improvement from Vitex.
It is frustrating, but since this summer is not all that long (though it may seem otherwise). Your time could be right around the corner. And remember- you may not know what your friends had to go through to get pregnant. Many couples do not share their struggles with fertility even with their closest friends.
