Which Fertility Pills Work Best To Get You Pregnant?

By   

Many women choose to boost their fertility and increase their chances of conceiving by using fertility pills. There are prescription fertility pills that you can get from a doctor’s office. There are also fertility pills and supplements that you can get over the counter without a doctor’s prescription.

There are many different fertility pill options, both prescription and over the counter

Today we’re going to try to sort them all out so you can be informed and make the best decision for you!

1 Clomid

Clomid is the most popular fertility drug in the United States. It is very successful, and most women tolerate it with few to no side effects. It is usually a doctor’s first course of action when fertility pills are recommended.

Clomid success rates

Clomid is a fertility pill that helps to trigger ovulation, and in many cases it is successful. In fact, somewhere between 60 and 80 percent of women who take Clomid for more than three months will begin ovulating. Of that number, around half of those women will become pregnant.

Clomid is usually taken for one five day cycle each month. Women will usually be given Clomid starting on day three, four or five of her cycle. If Clomid does not work right away, the dosage can be gradually increased.

However, most doctors do not recommend taking Clomid for more than six months or six cycles. The cost of Clomid is usually around $50 per cycle without insurance, but the drug is covered on many insurance plans. As far as side effects go, the side effects of Clomid are usually pretty mild, and include things like headache, bloating, nausea, cramps, and fatigue.

2 Metformin/Glucophage

Metformin, also known as Glucophage is a drug that is most commonly used for diabetes paitients. However, it is also sometimes prescribed for women with PCOS. Women with PCOS are often prone to insulin resistance, which in turn affects their ovulation.

Glucophage can help to improve insulin resistance in these women, and can help to bring about ovulation. This drug is also sometimes used to help reduce the risk of miscarriage in women who have had recurrent miscarriages. More research is needed on that, but as of right now it looks promising.

Metformin/Glucophage does sometimes have some mild side effects, but they are most commonly stomach related. The most commonly reported side effects are nausea, stomach cramps and diarrhea.

3 Vitex

Vitex is a very popular over the counter, nonprescription fertility supplement that many women turn to in the hope of boosting their fertility without costly fertility treatments at a clinic. Vitex is also known as Chasteberry, and it is a sort of herbal folk remedy. I bet if you asked your grandmother or great grandmother how to get pregnant, they would recommend Vitex. It is now available in pill form at many nutrition or health stores.

Vitex (chaste tree/berry extract): eliminates moods by balancing progesterone, and at the same time, regulates. Take Vitex every day (sometimes can cause upset stomach & bloating! Discontinue if so).

Vitex is commonly used for things like lengthening a short luteal phase, preventing miscarriage, balancing female hormones, and fighting amenorrhea (lack of periods). It is very inexpensive and can be taken along with other vitamins or supplements.

4 ConceiveEasy

One of the best choices for an over the counter fertility pill option is ConceiveEasy. ConceiveEasy is a complete nonprescription fertility kit, and it includes special fertility pills for each month. (The months are clearly labeled on the bottle so you can make sure to take the right ones.)

ConceiveEasy is a combination fertility supplement that is made up of all sorts of different fertility herbs, supplements and vitamins, all packaged together in one convenient pill. This is a great option for women who don’t want to spend the money on buying tons of different fertility herbs, or who don’t want to have to worry about the correct and proper dosage of each different fertility herb.

ConceiveEasy is great because you can buy it online without a prescription, and you can have it easily delivered to your door. It is also very affordable, and everything you need comes in one convenient kit. The ingredients in the ConceiveEasy pills are all formulated to boost female fertility naturally and without the use of any drugs.

ConceiveEasy can balance hormones, improve the quality of cervical mucus, lengthen the luteal phase, and stimulate ovulation and more.

ConceiveEasy-TTC-Kit

The best part is that the ConceiveEasy kit comes with lots of extras, including a basal body thermometer, basal body temperature charting kit, and your choice of free pregnancy tests or ovulation prediction tests. This is a great “all in one” option for women who don’t know where to start.

5 Folic Acid

Folic Acid, also known as folate, has long been a great natural fertility supplement. It is a great choice for women who want something “tried and true” to boost their fertility, and who might have an aversion to using something they have never heard of before. You can get folic acid through your diet if you eat lots of fruits and leafy greens, but you can also take a supplement.

Folic Acid is helpful for the body to produce new cells.  It has been recently discovered that it has an important role in assisting and facilitating conception, and it can prevent the appearance of some very serious birth defects as well, protecting both the mother and the baby.

Folic acid is found in all prenatal vitamins and taking it on it’s own is a great way for women to boost their fertility with an easy to take pill.
