I haven't used Fertilaid (I can't swallow pills, like at all), but I have used their FertiliTEA product. I like the tea - it tastes like mint green tea, which I love - but it has caffeine, and pretty any amount of caffeine I drink affects DD. So... I only drink it sporadically. Who knows if it actually works.

For the amount of money that stuff costs, I'd try cheaper things first. lol.
It's definitely not cheap, but I really don't want to use any drugs like Clomid. I'm not even sure there is a problem, but I want to help things along. I'm thinking of just having my husband take the FertilAid for men and see what happens. It's supposed to help with the quality, quantity, and motility of sperm. Most of the reviews I read online were good, but I was hoping to hear more reviews from the TTC community that I knew to be unbiased.
I thought about using Fertilaid but decided to use Royal Jelly and Maca based on my own research.
I loved both of them and the way they made me feel, especially the Royal Jelly. Plus, it's soooo good for you.
It took us 9 months to conceive this little guy I'm preggo with now. Not sure how much everything helped but when I read they recommend IVF patients take Royal Jelly for egg quality prior to procedures, I knew I was trying it. And it seems to have worked in our case. My DH also took Maca.
I dud try the fertilitea. While it's delicious...no help for us. I used it for months and really got nothing from it.
I used it for 3 months when we were trying for #1 . It shortened my rather long cycles (35 days before, around 30 days while taking it) and I had no spotting before AF for any of those cycles.
We didn't get pg during those months, but I was diagnosed with a thyroid disorder shortly afterwards, which was likely making it difficult to get pg.
The cost of shipping it here was exorbitant, so I didn't bother to get any more after the first 3 months were done!
