  • I have not yet used it but have been researching it. It works by regulating your hormones. At the proper dose it reduces prolactin levels which in turn increase the follicle stimulating hormone. That  means it makes it more likely that you willovulate. You should google it or it's other name Chasteberry.


    You should also make sure you are getting plenty of omega 3's, that will help to increase your fertile qaulity cervical fluid.
