Does Fertilaid Really Work
Fertilaid: The "jury is still out" on whether this formulation is effective at enhancing fertility. I have seen no good well-controlled clinical trials addressing this supplement, only anecdotal stories touting its value on various blogs. You might glance at this article==>http://en. Wikipedia. Org/wiki/fertilaid. As always, it it were my wife, I would urge her to consult first with her gynecologist.
It doesn't (no proof: I guess in theory it could, but there is no satisfactory evidence at this time that it works at all - for anybody. These products are not regulated and no clinically worthwhile studies have been published. Until some evidence appears supporting that it works, I'd avoid products like Fertilaid.
Good question: Men with infertility are likely to try many different otc supplements in hopes of improving their fertility with minimal risk. The current literature is filled with reports of improvements in semen parameters and even pregnancy rates when subjects are treated with these regimens. Definitive conclusions as to their true effects on male subfertility and dosing regimen have not been identified.
Chasteberry: Another otc product with no proven benefits by controlled trials. Why did you take this? Go and see an infertility expert and use known effective professional advice. Good luck and have a wonderful baby.
So so: Infertity is a very complex and a very very emotional problem to deal with. Any single product that claims to solve it with the taking of a pill is what is known as "magical" thinking. Most normal infertile couples (where all the tests are normal) get pregnant within 5 yrs. Frequently after a couple adopts the wife gets pregnant within 6 months. Those supplements are usually not necessary!!
Kind of young: Have you been trying to get pregnant for a while. Seek a second opinion.See 1 more doctor answer
I want to start takin fertilaid, but if ur regular it can mess up your cycle, for the past 4mths I have been 5, 2, 4, 10 days late, is this regular?
Not quite regular: Fertilaid has several products, and since they are not medications approved by the fda, fertilaid is probably not tested for interactions and side effects like real medicines are. So, that means nobody really knows what effects and side effects there are. If a fertilaid user hears of some interaction or thinks she is getting a side effect, she can visit his primary care doctor.
Its a multivitamin: I had to look at the ingredients on the package insert. Fetilaid is simply a multvitamin. Grab a different brand next time you are at the store and compare the similarities to the many other prenatal vitamins. Any prenatal vitamin that you like is ok to take.
No proof effective: Funny, I thought you were asking about a uk product given where you live. But it turns out fertilaid for men & fertilaid for women are american dietary supplements. Therefore, there is no peer-reviewed published data of its effectiveness, much less any requirement to prove safety, as american dietary supplement manufacturers are allowed to make just about any claims to market their products.
Why am I emotional lately? I am currently taking fertilaid and I've became an emotional wreck. Help me.!
Fertilaid: This dietary supplement contains vitamins & antioxidants that reportedly enhance fertility. Some ingredients in fertilaid are siberian ginseng & gingko biloba. These herbal/dietary supplements can interact with other medications or cause side-effects of their own. Discuss with your ob/gyn.
Have you heard of the FERTILAID capsules, which are helping TTC couples to conceive? Any thoughts? Thanks
Unknown effects...: Fertilaid has several products, and since they are not medications approved by the FDA, Fertilaid is probably not tested for interactions and side effects like real medicines are tested for. So, that means nobody really knows what effects and side effects there are. If a Fertilaid user hears of some interaction or thinks she is getting a side effect, she can visit his primary care doctor.
No.: There is no evidence to support this claim.
Fertility: It really depends on #1 if you have a fertility problem, and #2 what that problem is. If you have been tic for over 12 months, unsuccessfully, you need to consult with aGyn or fertility specialist. If you are just trying to improve your chances of conception, but are otherwise normal, the most important thing to take is folic acid. It helps to prevent a number of birth defects.
Maybe: Vitamins such as fertilaid contain various vitamins that may help sperm quality. Whether they help conception is less clear but they are certainly not harmful.
Hi I just received fertilaid and I can't swallow pills. I was wondering if I could open the capsule and put it in applesauce.
Sure: There is no reason why you cannot do this as an option.
Is fertilaid something I should consider? Is it a trustworthy pill? I read great reviews on it.24yrs old ttc miscarried8wks dec 11th. 2 periods since
It depends: After reading about fertilaid, I see that it likely won't hurt anything but I am more concerned about your infrequent periods since your miscarriage. That is a likely source for fertility problems. One miscarriage, though is not in itself worrisome. About 25% of pregnancies miscarry early like you did. I would suggest you see an ob/gyn about this issue.See 1 more doctor answer
I'm on fertilaid an Trying to chart my way threw I am on cd 20 with about five days of lotion like discharge and my areolas are darker, bigger, an swolle?
Not FDA approved: Fertilaid is a vitamin, mineral and herbal supplement that purports to enhance fertility in men and women. There is NO, and I mean NO, scientific evidence that it does anything other than enhance the bottom line of those who sell it to you. On the other hand, it doesn't PREVENT pregnancy. So, if you are having "pregnancy-like" symptoms, by all means, do a pregnancy test.
