  • The only thing I can suggest is to be very careful taking OTC meds, even Herbs. Most herbs are not controlled by the FDA so you really don't know whats in them or if they have serious side effects.

  • I took Clomid and had great results with it. I never tried anything OTC. If you have been trying consecutively for more than a year with no pregnancy, I would suggest you see your doctor and consider Clomid if they recommend it. There is also Femara which is a prescribed med. Another tool you may want to try before fertility meds is temping and charting. I temp and chart still just to keep track of my cycles. It really helped me pinpoint my fertile days. Check out if you are interested.
