I am wondering if anyone on here has ever turned to trying these natural supplements that claim to help boost fertility?
Example pills sold by Fairhaven supplements that help to enhance ovulation or cervical mucus, etc.
What was your experience with them?

There Isn't a delete option but you can modify a post.

I am not sure about the female supplements but I have a friend whose husband had a low sperm count. The doctor gave them a 2% chance of conceiving on their own. He took Fertilaid for 3 months. They now have a 13 month old boy and she just found out she is pregnant with number 2. Seems to me like those supplements must have had some effect on her hubbies sperm.
