While I’m getting to be more versed in all things fertility, I’m by no means an expert on getting pregnant, seeing my certain situation as it is and all. (And I honestly say this with a sense of humor—you have to laugh at this stuff.) BUT, I have tried a lot of this and that on my journey that I thought would be helpful to share for those trying to get pregnant. They haven’t worked for me (yet), but they might just do the getting-knocked-up trick for you!
4 Things to Try When Trying to Get Pregnant
1. OvaBoost. Taking a prenatal vitamin always makes sense when trying to get pregnant, but if you know that you’re dealing with something like PCOS or poor egg quality—or if you’re 30 or older—talking to your doctor about using supplements to boost the quality and quantity of the eggs you produce can be a good idea. I’ve tried a few months of OvaBoost ($28.95 for a one-month supply bottle), which helps protect egg cells from the damaging effect of free radicals and helps egg cells produce the energy they need for successful conception and implantation. This supplement uses myo-inositol, folic acid and melatonin, along with Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), vitamin E, grapeseed extract and alpha lipoic acid. You have to take four pills a day, which is kind of hard to remember, but I really dig how much science goes into this supplement.
