Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) and infertility often go hand in hand.
In fact, some studies suggest that PCOS is the single most common cause of infertility.
Of the 8-10% of women of reproductive age with PCOS, the vast majority will experience difficulty in conceiving a child.
PCOS is a condition characterized by hormonal imbalance, one that tends to interfere with normal ovulation. In addition to ovarian cysts, PCOS is also associated with irregular menstruation, hirsutism (excessive hairiness), obesity, and insulin resistance.
Since its introduction in 2003, FertilAid for Women has been very popular with trying-to-conceive women with PCOS - often as an alternative to prescription drugs. This is because FertilAid for Women contains herbal ingredients that have been shown to exert a normalizing influence on key reproductive hormones, including progesterone, prolactin, follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and estrogen.
After taking FertilAid for Women, many women have reported the following results:
- Regular Ovulation (where ovulation had not been occurring previously)
- A Return of Cycle Regularity
- Reduced menstrual pain and PMS symptoms
The following are actual reviews submitted to us by FertilAid users with PCOS:
First Fertile CM in a year May 18, 2010
Not PG yet but after a year of TTC, 7 months of clomid where I only ovulated once (I have PCOS) and my RE telling me that my only option was injectables with IUI. I have been faithfully taking my Fertilaid and FertileCM since 4/26/10. Yesterday I finally had EWCM! I haven't had good fertile CM in well over a year! I am so excited that I might finally have a chance! I will update as time goes on. Baby Dust to all!!!!
Excellent Product, March 17, 2010
I have PCOS and have had irregular cycles for years. I wanted to try
something that was natural and would yield timely results. I purchased
in January and I've had two regular cycles since then which is great.
Consistency is always a good sign. I haven't been trying to conceive
yet, just working on the regular cycles. THis is a great product which
I highly reccommend.
Great for women with PCOS! December 30, 2009
Hello...I have sent an email previously, but wanted to say again how excited I am about Fertilaid!! I have severe PCOS, so I started taking fertilaid...w/ PCOS, I NEVER have a cycle on my own unless I am on BC pills...w/ the fertilaid I have had TWO cycles on my own! The first month it was a 43 day cycle, this month, 41 day cycle! I am so excited...I ordered 3 more bottles, and three bottles of the fertilaid for men for my hubby!! We have one child through IVF, and would LOVE to have another without going through ALL OF THAT again!!!

Miracle Aid November 27, 2009
This was my 2nd time using Fertilaid. I was using it for only 1month when I got pregnant with my daughter who is now 19months old. I was only on it 2months this time and I'm now due with my 2nd child in Aug. 2010.. I have PCOS and only 1 ovary. Clomid never helped me, but fertilaid did. I'm now carring my 2nd miracle baby after a # of drs told me I'd never get pregnant. I wish the best of luck to anyone who is ttc. Baby dust! : )
Yay! November 19, 2009
Reviewer: FertilAid for Women
In my previous email to you guys I was explaining that I have PCOS and have been taking Fertilaid for a lil over a month…and haven't had a cycle, Etc.
You asked for me to keep you posted, so I HAVE to email you to let you know… I started my FIRST cycle w/ Fertilaid yesterday!!! I am SO happy and excited I can hardly STAND IT!
I know most people are normally excited in telling you that they are pregnant from fertilaid, BUT I CANNOT believe that in my condition (PCOS) I STARTED my cycle w/ all natural stuff and not birth control or progesterone shots!!!!!!! YAY!!!!
Working so Far November 05, 2009
I have been taking Fertilaid for a month and after 2 weeks, my period started! So I'm hoping Fertilaid will work as fast to help me get pregnant.
I have PCOS (irregular periods) and I hadn't had a period since May 09. My doctor gave me Provera to take in September but it gave me such bad cramps and my period was really heavy. I saw an ad in Conceive Magazine and decided to give it a try.
I was definitely leery about it at first but I talked to my doctor and she told me to give it a try. I was going to start taking Clomid but I thought I could try this out for a few months and see what happens.
I hope I will have good news soon! And even if it doesn't help me to get pregnant, it has helped me to have a period. I'm happy about that!
just try September 29, 2009
After 3 years trying, I am pregnant now. I couldn't believe it. PCOS women - just try it.
Best Product EVER!!! August 11, 2009
Reviewer: Anige Gulley
We have been trying for over 7 yrs to conceive. We even tried a fertility dr only to be told that I had PCOS. We gave up after 3 rounds of 150mg of Clomid didn't work. On Father's Day, this year, I ordered our first bottles of Fertilaid for Women, Men and the CM pills (along with the tea and microscope). Within 10 days, my cycle started and immediately, after starting the pills, I felt great! I bought our 2nd month, and then waited for my cycle to begin. We tried for a baby on the days my scope showed the ferning. That's another thing, I had NEVER got any positives with OPKs prior to taking your pills. I took a hpt on the 7th and it was faintly positive!! I have NEVER had a positive on a pregnancy test EVER!!!! I am still scared it's not real, but I have been told there are really no false positives and a faint positive is still a positive! I have told all of my ttc friends about your product and I will continue to share it with others!!
It worked!!!!! July 15, 2009
My husband and I have been trying for about 10 months with no luck. Ever since I went off of birth control over a year ago, my cycles were very few and far between. So I bought a bottle of FertilAid and had a normal cycle of 34 days, I was excited but at my doctors appt I was told that I showed signs of PCOS so they put me on a cycle of Clomid... which was horrible. After more stressful months of trying different things I ordered another bottle of FertilAid and 3 weeks later I was pregnant!!! I wish I would have just stuck with FertilAid from the begining. We couldn't be happier with FertilAid.
Works for me June 28, 2009
Last December, I started having troubles with my periods. I've always been regular, but from December to March, my periods would come late and stay for two weeks, and then stop for a week and start up again. I was so stressed and exhausted all the time. About three years ago, the doctors found a cyst on one of my ovaries after I complained about pain. I've read alot about PCOS and have tried very diligently to improve my situation. When my periods started getting crazy around December, I got paranoid. I thought that they would even out on their own, but they didn't. SO I tried Fertil-aid. I've been using the products for about two months and I've just ended my second normal cycle. I don't feel any more pain in my ovaries and my periods aren't as heavy as they used to be. I am very grateful and will definitely continue to use this great product!!! Good luck to all of you out there. You do not need to have surgery in order to fix your ovarian cysts. They can be treated. I am proof.

I'm pregnant April 29, 2009
I am 36 with one ovary and PCOS. I have 11 year old twins due to IUI. I have a new husband who wanted children. I thought it would take many trips to the doctor like last time. I found this web site ordered a bottle and for the first time in my life I had a regular period. I ordered another bottle and never finished I am pregnant. 9 weeks! what a shock, I really was a big skeptic now a believer.

IT WORKS ! ! September 01, 2008
Okay, so my husband and I have been trying for 12 months to have another baby. We already have 2 kids (ages 3 & 16 mos.), and after a recent diagnoses of PCOS, as well as 2 miscarriages, I was wondering if it would ever happen. Because of the PCOS, I rarely ever get a period, so I have NO CLUE when I ovulate. Using ovulation predictors every day gets a little old when the result is always negative, plus it's expensive! Anyway, I was soooo skeptical about this product, but after reading the reviews from other customers I thought it couldn't hurt to try. I took it for only 2 weeks and got my 1st natural period in 16 mos. This week I actually ovulated and we did the deed, so we'll see what happens. Even though I'm not prego yet, I'm still very optimistic and think this is a wonderful product. I would recommend it to anyone ! I'll keep you updated :-)
