In brief: Evaluate

If you are trying to get pregnant the most important thing is to have sex, at the right time.
You could buy an ovulation predictor kit to see when you are ovulating then have sex within the next 24 hours. If you are trying for more than 1 year get a thorough evaluation by your doctor. If you are 35 or older do this at the 6 month mark. Good luck!

In brief: Nothing

There is nothing over-the-counter that can universally help couples get pregnant.
If you have a specific problems that make sex difficult, such as lubrication issues, then a sperm-safe lubricant might help.

In brief: Get it Good Shape!

The best advice is to get into the best shape you can.
Normalize your body composition / weight, drink < 4 alcoholic beverages weekly, avoid smoking / 2nd-hand smoke. Don't "take" anything other than good, whole food, supplement with a good multivitamin and folic acid, and in many cases, some vitamin d. If you are over 33 years old, don't hesitate to initiate a basic fertility workup.
