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.

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.

And if that doesn't work after 6 months, call the doctor again. ...Read more
