Will liquid Geritol help? I've been trying to get pregnant since high school

It couldn't hurt.: Geritol, or any vitamin supplement could help you conceive, in particular if you had some vitamin or iron deficiency that it helped to correct. However, if you have been unable to get pregnant, and have been trying for 12 years, then I feel you really need to see a doctor to talk with you, examine your, and do some tests to help figure out what is the problem. ...Read more

Can the combination of goat weed, geritol, and maca root help me get pregnant if I have a hormone surge?

Can the combination of goat weed, geritol, and maca root help me get pregnant if I have a hormone surge?

No: Every culture has some rather unique ideas on how to help women get pregnant, which shows how much we humans value babies and the ability to have lots of them. It's safe to say, "none of those wild ideas actually work". Stay healthy, eat nutritious foods, be happy, be relaxed, have lots of sex around ovulation time, . . . And if that doesn't work after 6 months, call the doctor again. ...Read more

No & it's up to you: When I was growing up, Geritol brand of vitamins (http://www.geritol.com/geritol-complete) was advertised for older patients. I am not aware of any evidence that taking them will get you pregnant faster. Any iron supplement can make you constipated.
