  • Lots of herbs are alleged to increase fertility. I didn't find them too helpful. What DID work was to start charting my cycles. "Taking Charge Of Your Fertility" by Toni Wechsler is the owner's manual for the female reproductive system... follow her method, pregnant next cycle. Really!

  • I know they have ovulation kits that will help you know exactly when you are fertile. How long have you been trying? Atleast if you go to the doctor they can tell you if you or your spouse are having fetility problems. You may go and they say just keep trying.

  • I knw that making that call is very hard to do. The doctors can do alot to help you. They may have to do invitro but sometimes it is something much simplier. The not knowing may be harder than knowing and doing something about it. I know several kids who were born due to invitro. Don't give up, just check out all your options!! good luck!

  • Try fertibella. Not everyone on here is a fan, but it worked for me and I'm an older mom who struggled w/ this for a long time before finding success. It comes w/ free ovulation tests so you can track your progress too.
