Hello, 

I have heard great things about both Fertilaid for men and also Fertile Pro... I was just wondering if anyone has had success with either of these and if they would recommend it? Currently my hubby is on a multi vitamin, vitamin C, fish oil with omega-3, and zinc. 

 

thanks in advance!

Worked great for my hubs!  We used Fertilaid & acupuncture.  This being said...I (being a lay person) would consider Fertileaid & Fertile Pro interchangeable.  I just happened to order one rather than the other.  Good luck!


We've tried lots of things for a long time. None of them have resulted in a viable pregnancy.

Wow, it's impressive how cooperative your DH is. A few years ago mine used Fertilaid and Motility Boost for several months in a row and his numbers improved but then he stopped all of sudden (and that's when we started fighting more frequently but that's a different story). I still believe that maybe our chances (doing IUIs) would have been better had he not stopped taking them.

I wish you all the best.

Who stole ambushed my stork?  So many failed cycles with nothing to show but bills, receipts, and empty bottles of medications/herbs/supplements. See my profile for details... 

 

Kindly save your sticky vibes and baby dust and send them to those who are new and excited in this journey.

Thanks girls!
We also tried fertiaid for men wjen we first started ttc. For some reason after the first 2 bottles were gone he stopped. 1.5 years later we are taking it a bit more serious so ready to try again! I just heard of fertilepro.

Maybe one of you girls can answer this question I have to...
I am Femera, (cd 5-9) and on cd 8 I had ewcm, never usually have much cm, took a OPK and it was positive (Af ended on cd3) since cd 8 I continued taking opks to be sure, well every day since then it's been positive. So 5 days of positive opks.
I don't have pcos...

Huh...sorry britt...I think those qs can only be answered by u/s monitoring to see what's going on...

We used fertilaid but didn't notice any results. I've read on a few other sites that Fertility Blend works for men, but if taken by women can mess with their cycles.

My husband (will be in a little over a month) had some improvement with Fertilaid for Men, CountBoost and Motility Boost, but he has severely low sperm count.

Then we won a one month's supply recently, and he only took it for a week or so and just stopped.  Didn't refuse, just seemed to forget. So I gave up trying to give it to him. He was on something or other every day for a year or two there.

Even I've stopped everything but Vitex (I got lazy about putting them together every week), though I have some vitamins and supplements that I want to make my way through, don't want to waste the money.

In the Fairhaven fertility package we won, I also got a month worth of Fertilaid for Women, Fertile CM, OvaBoost, and there were two Fertile Detox, one for each of us. I stopped taking the Fertilaid because it messed me up a fair bit, I felt very off. Luckily, it didn't mess up my cycles too much. I have read horror stories. I took the OvaBoost and Fertile CM till they were done, still making my way through the Fertile Detox ones. I have to wonder if the men's formulas are safe for women to take... L-Carnitine and L-Arginine plus Ashwagandha seems to be safe as long as you're not pregnant. Not sure about some of the other herbs.
