Can you take anything besides fertility drugs to boost your chances of getting pregnant?

In brief: No

The answer is 'no.
' like fad diets, the grapevine and the internet are filled with remedies, herbs, otc drugs, diets, vitamins, supplements, and tricks to 'make you more fertile.' none are validated: at best they don't work and at worst, dangerous. That said: a healthy diet, limiting caffeine and alcohol, avoid tobacco, moderate exercise, and staying healthy all support natural fertility.
