Fertility drugs tend to be the “go-to” treatment option for trying-to-conceive women experiencing ovulation disorders.
Commonly prescribed fertility drugs (like Clomid) are effective in encouraging ovulation; it’s estimated that around 80% of women taking Clomid will ovulate during their first treatment cycle.
Fertility drugs do, however, come with their share of attendant side effects – vaginal dryness, blurring of vision, breast pain, etc. And “reality television” has ensured we’re all aware of the increased risk of multiple births; multiples, (either twins, triplets, or higher-order) occur with considerably greater prevalence when taking prescription fertility drugs. Perhaps most alarming, however, is the recent study data linking fertility drug usage to higher incidences of autism.
Undoubtedly, there is a portion of the population that will require prescription – and/or surgical – medical intervention in order to successfully achieve pregnancy. That said, doesn’t it behoove us to first explore the safe, natural options that are available to us for encouraging regular ovulation and improving our chances of conceiving?
FertilAid for Women is a natural supplement designed by leading fertility expert, Amos Grunebaum, MD. It 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. On the market since 2003 and used by tens of thousands of women, FertilAid for Women has no known side effects.
The following are actual reviews submitted by FertilAid users who have also taken prescription fertility drugs:
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!!!!

God gets the glory…I did my part and God did the rest! My husband and I have been trying to conceive almost four years, and wasn’t successful. We did invitro for a few years, but wasn’t successful. As of late, I changed my diet, saw an acupucturist, and started taking fertilecm and fertiaid and found out last night (May 7) that I was expecting!
I’m pregnant, thanks to FertilAid and my husband! May 04, 2010
I just wanted to thank you! I’ve been taking FertilAid for women ever since January 2010, and tried Fertile CM for the first time at the very beginning of my last cycle. I’ve been charting my basal body temperature since December when I had my Mirena IUD removed, and I’ve seen the difference your products have made in my cycle. I had clear ovulation dips in temperature last cycle and the cycle before, so I was definitely happy with the improvement FertilAid made in my cycles. Considering the trouble we had conceiving our twin daughters and the fact that we resorted to IVF to conceive them after 3 1/2 years infertility, my husband and I decided that this time we were going to need all the help we could find to conceive naturally. Long story short, I just got my very first and only positive home pregnancy test without outside medical help on May 2. I am completely sure that I have your products to thank for it. I honestly didn’t believe that I could conceive either quickly or easily and I am elated to be proven wrong. Thank you, thank you, thank you, from the bottom of my heart!
It Worked! April 16, 2010
Reviewer: Danielle F.
My husband and I had tried for over a year to get pregnant. My menstrual cycle was less then reliable and it was very difficult for me to hear that I wasn’t ovulating, therefore all those months of hoping and trying had been in vain. My gynecologist wanted to put me on the drug Clomid that would force my body to ovulate. The idea of taking a pill that would force my body to do something made me feel uncomfortable. I wanted my baby to be naturally healthy, therefore I wanted the process to stay as close nature as possible. With the help of Fairhaven Health I was able to find an alternative to assist in promoting a regular cycle and ovulation. Granted, I did have a thread of doubt. I read so many wonderful success stories on the Fairhaven Health website, but I couldn’t help but think maybe I wouldn’t be one of those. Still, I promised my self to try FertilAid for at least 3 months and see what happened. I took my first pill on January 1st 2010. On March 16th, 2010 I had the most wonderful day. My husband and I got to see our 8 week baby’s heart beat for the first time. We are so overjoyed that we are finally having our dream of having a family come true. I cried when my pregnancy test came out postive back in Feburary. It feels at times surreal, but I seeing that little heart made it all so real. I whole heartly suggest FertilAid to anyone who is trying to concieve. Give it a chance and stick with it. I’m even telling all of the midwifes I’ve interviewed about my success in hopes of them being able to give an alternative to women who are facing that same thing I did. I owe Fairhaven Health so much, I will never be able to repay you for this amazing chance at motherhood you have given me.
Thanks to fertilaid, March 09, 2010
I had been hahving very long menstrual cycles, up to 5 months long even, until I started taking Fertilaid. Right from the point that I started taking Fertilaid, my cycles got shorter and shorter–from 69 days, to 53 days, to 40 days and finally to a regular 30 day cycle! Prior to Fertilaid, my doctor had told me to stop exercising, I had tried accupuncture and many other routes, but Fertilaid was the only thing that got my cycle back on track. Now, I am happy to report, when my husband and I decided to try to get pregnant, it happened on the second month of trying-I truly credit our success to Fertilaid and would recommend it to anyone!
It worked! March 08, 2010
My husband and I had been trying for two years when I heard about this product. Several several visits to fertility doctors and a failed IUI attempt, and we still didn’t have a healthy pregnancy. I was definitely a minority. I can conceive on my own but had suffered 4 miscarriages on our two year journey. We were at the end of our rope and had scheduled IVF when I told my husband I wanted both of us to try this for two months. The second month of being on fertilaid…I got pregnant and this time it stuck! I am now 23 weeks pregnant with a healthy baby boy due in July. I swear by this product and tell everyone I know about it. It is the ONLY thing we did differently as far as pills and intervention that worked. I truly believe in this product and will definitely use it when we try for #2!!!
Amazing, March 02, 2010
This product is Amazing, my husband and i were on clomid for months last year with no luck and we were told we had unexplained fertility, we were on Fertilaid for 2 1/2 months and i am now 8 weeks pregnant
fertilaid product, February 14, 2010
This product works and makes you feel good too. We had tried for 16 years with medical fertilty meds with no luck. We started April 06 with Fertil aid value packs and became pregnant Oct 06. At the same time I finally started to feel better then I had in years. I’ve told all my friends and complete strangers of this product and know it has worked for other couples. We are now trying again: fingers crossed. Thank you for this wonderful product as now we have a wonderful bright eyed 2 year boy.
I can’t believe it!, February 05, 2010
My husband and I have been trying since September of 2006, our wedding day. I have had surgery because I have ovarian cysts and endometriosis. I was put on the lupron shot and after 6 months of that, I didn’t think I would ever have kids. It was the worst 6 months of my life. I went through menopause at the age of 22. My husband and I tried everything, from taking my basel temperature for 90 days and charting everything, to 2 weeks of ovulation tests. Nothing, so I went online and looked up ways to help. I found FertilAid for Women. I thought “hey, what can I loose.” It said it takes about 3 bottles to work. I ordered one, nothing happened, I ordered the 2nd and half way through it I GOT PREGO’S!!!!! We are so happy I found FertilAid. It turned my life around!! Thank you!
AF on my own after 10 years January 30, 2010
Reviewer: Stephanie, NJ
After 5 weeks of Fertilaid, I got AF on my own for the first time in 10 years! I never had a cycle without BCP or progesterone pills. I’m on my third bottle, hoping for a positive preg result! If not, I am definitely planning on ordering 3 more months. It’s so inexpensive compared to fertility treatment. I would recommend this product to any woman who has irregular non-existent periods. Every woman is different, but the low cost is worth it!
LOVE IT!!!!, January 15, 2010
I must say I LOVE this product. I started using it Dec. 09 when i found out I had anovulatory cycles. Within a few days of using it, my cycles (temps) were normal, and I ovulated for the first time. 2 weeks later we got a + pregnancy test. Sadly that pregnancy was ectopic, and when we were able to start trying again, my doc. put me on all sorts of prescrption meds which never works. Frustrated I returned to the FertilAid and that month got another + pregnancy test, which sadly ended in miscarriage (chormosonal issues the doc said). Right away we started trying again using the FertilAid and within 2 months we are now pregnant again and this one looks like it is going to stick. I truely believe that if it was not for the FertilAid, we would not have gotten pregnant again and be on our way to having a baby in a few months 🙂
Fertilaid for Women, January 09, 2010
i am on my 3rd bottle now and have realized how much of a difference this product has made. DH and i have been TTC for almost a year now and i have never received a + on an OPK before. this month i have received my first and hopefully this is the start of something new. my cycle days went from 33-35 bleeding for 7-10 days, now to 26-28 days bleeding for 3-5 days. and my LP has been put at 14days now.
Thank you so much for your product. even my Doc recommended it instead of taking Clomid.
Pregnant at last!, December 03, 2009
My husband and I had tried to conceive for a year and I did 4 rounds of Clomid without having any signs of ovulation before both my husband and I tried your products and after a month and a half we were pregnant!! I’m now 11 weeks pregnant and we couldn’t be happier!! This product is wonderful!! I’m telling everyone all about it!
GREAT!, November 29, 2009
My husband and I tried for Baby #2 for six months. I had a short luteal phase and my doctor wanted to do Clomid and an IUI. I wanted to try and do it naturally so I tried FerilAid. My first full month of using it I got pregnant. I am 12 weeks and everything is going well. I felt great while taking the pills and didn’t notice any negative side effects. It immediately regulated my cycle and I had more fertile days. Thank You!
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! : )
OMG!!!!, November 19, 2008
I’ve been trying to get pregnant for over 2 years. I tried all kinds of stuff… nothing seemed to work. After felling hopeless I saw an add for FertilAid. So I ordered a 2 month supply. After just 3 weeks of being on the pill I’m finally pregnant! I’m 6 weeks pregnant now. and I’m the most happiest woman alive thanks to FertilAid. I would/will recommend anyone that is having difficulty conceiving to try FertilAid… you won’t be disappointed. Thank you to the makers of FertilAid!!!!!

Reviewer: Sarah – TX
I was skeptical upon purchasing this product because of all the unsuccessful fertililty treatments that I’ve been through. After speaking with my husband, I decided to give Fertilaid a try and am happy to report that not only did I ovulate (something I never did) but I also conceived the very first cycle. We are expecting our 2nd baby July 11th! It’s because of many prayers and this wonderful product that we have been so blessed! Thank you!!
great!, October 31, 2009
Fertilaid started to help me get my cycles regulated on the third month I was taking the pills… I am now on month four and am hoping for a BFP soon! However I did start feeling the effects within 24 hours of taking my first dose on month one… I had more energy, no headaches, no cramps or cravings… after DEPO I had been dealing with these symptoms DAILY for 12 months!!! after I started fertilaid everything has been getting back to normal!
Dreams do come true, October 15, 2009
After six years of trying to conceive, I will be having my Baby sometime around Christmas. Over the years my Husband and I have tried several different things and after meeting about In-vitro and feeling crushed that we just couldn’t bring ourselves to go in that direction we turned to you. My husband had taken fertile aid for men as we knew of his low sperm count and motility and mobility issues before. When we were seeking fertility treatments it did show that his counts were going up. I still was not getting pregnant. In January I finally did conceive only to have a miscarriage. So starting in Mid February I myself started taking fertile aid for Woman and Fertile CM, I was also drinking about three cups of fertile tea a day. Now the fertility specialist was unable to find any issues with my fertility, but we were in a desperate situation. So Hubby is in the Military and was away for four months, we planed on trying again when he returned as we both would have been taking the Vitamins for over three months. I visited him for a long weekend in April and 30 wks later here we are awaiting on our bundle of joy. I believe with all my heart that God helped us to decide the natural way was a better way for us. Anyone who doesn’t want to play God should really give these vitamins a go. After six years of trying this is a miracle and a dream come true.
I wish I tried this a year ago!, September 30, 2009
Reviewer: Amy W.
After suffering two misscarriages in less than a year, I wasn’t sure I wanted to try again. Unfortunately after a few months of trying I found out I stopped ovulating. The doctor gave me a couple of months of clomid to try to see if I would ovulate and conceive after numerous tests to rule out other issues. Almost a year of trying with no luck, I read an add for Fertil Aid. I said I was done trying but I would buy a few months worth to see if maybe it would regulate my cycle. No ovulation tests or Fertil Focus and no charts, I was done. Well by the end of the first month of using Fertil Aid I found out I was pregnant. I am happy to say we are 12 weeks along and my doctors say everything looks great and we should have this baby in April.
Expecting :), September 27, 2009
Reviewer: Cristina M.
I am not sure it was the FertilAid alone, but about one week after I and my husband started taking the vitamins I got pregnant. We’ve been trying for 4 years or so without result and no apparent reason. I was just about to start on Clomid but I decided to give FertilAid a try before going on hormonal treatment (we were in vacation too, so maybe that helped a bit as well). I would definitely recommend to give it a try before more expensive and intrusive treatments. I will definitely take it again for my next baby 😉
Finally pregnant, September 14, 2009
After at least 8 failed IUI’s and 3 failed IVF cycles we are finally pregnant after almost losing all hope. Your product worked within the first month of use! Thanks a million!!
Miracle Pill, September 06, 2009
I must say, I was not sure about this pill because I thought if it worked, it would be a RX OR all over the news. But hey, it def. worked. I didn’t even finish the bottle and I got the great news. We were having a honeymoon baby with the help of Fertilaid!!

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!!
This really works, July 29, 2009
I had been trying to conceive for the last 5 years. About 3 years ago, I was told that my chances of getting pregnant again would be slim to none. I was diagnosed with tubal blockage, and was told that I would have to see a fertility specialist in order to get pregnant. I decided to google natural products, and came across FertilAid. I was a little skeptical at first, but decided to give it a shot after reading other reviews. Then I placed an order for 3 bottles, and once I received the product began taking them 3 x’s a day on the first day of my cycle. I must admit that I took them everyday at first, then stopped before I finished the bottle. However, a month later I found out that I am in fact pregnant. Today I am 2 weeks PREGNANT….I know it was the fertilaid that allowed me to conceive. Started taking them in June and now we are in July…..did not take long for me, once I started the product. Thanks for creating a product that gives hope to a lot of couples trying to conceive.
Worked after clomid and IUI did not, July 18, 2009
My husband and I have two children (3 and 4) and were trying for a third for a couple of years. After having a miscarriage and a few other issues I was put on Clomid with trigger shot and IUI for four months with no success. After money ran out to continue we took a break. I started taking Fertilaid for women and Fertile CM and before finishing the second bottle of each I just got a positive pregnancy test!! Hoping that all goes well, but would recommend this to anyone- amazing!!
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.
FertilAid for Women, June 21, 2009
We tried for 2 1/2 years total to start our family. I had surgery and also took clomid for 9 months nothing worked. We were told about FertilAid. I took it for only 3 weeks and we found out we were pregnant. We were so excited, if I cant get pregnant on my own again I will use FertilAid for sure. Now we have the most beautiful girl, thank you so much.
This is amazing, April 23, 2009
Reviewer: Michele L.
If you ever wonder about if this works? It truly works. We have been trying for almost 2 years now. We’ve tried clomid with no luck. And I was just not ready to move onto the next procedur. So I was willing to give this supplement a try becuase I heard that when your body is lacking the right amount of hormones it is better to have the right essential vitamin. My Dr. told me the reason I was not getting pregnant was because of lack of Estrogen and Progesterone. Which meant I was not making the right egg for myself to get pregnant. I am 39 years of age and today I can tell you that I ‘m PREGNANT…. Give this a try. It’s amazing.

I took Fertilaid for about a month and a half (if that long) after trying to become pregnant for 10 months. I had taken four rounds of Clomid with no luck so I decided to try this product after reading all the reviews. I figured what the heck? I am now happy to report that I am expecting my second child. I beleive Fertilaid helped me tremendously. I have given what was left of my second bottle to a friend who is also trying to conceive.; Hopefully, it will work for her too.
It works!, March 27, 2009
We are 40 and been trying for a year. End last year, we were told we HAVE to do IVF as our chance of conceiving naturally is very low, although not impossible. We started taking fertiliaid in January 09, just once a day as we were not sure if there were any side effects. I had acne breakout but who cares ‘cos two days ago, the doctor has confirmed it was a positive! I say it works and will pass my bottle which is more than half full to my sister who is TTC!!

Miracle of Miracles, March 19, 2009
Reviewer: Steve and Angie
I can’t believe I get to be a success story. I found fertilaid over a year ago and loved it. My cycles became textbook and my husband, with low testosterone, seemed to develop a stronger sex drive. We went to to fertility specialists who said my FSH was too high(25) and AMH was too low. They both said chances of conceiving were less than 1%. Neither wanted to even try fertility drugs. They said our only shot was embryo donation. After months of dealing with devastation and ultimately, acceptance, we decided to adopt. We were both excited with the decision. We both began taking fertilaid again late last year. My husband said it made him feel better and I felt the same way. Two weeks ago, I found out I was 8 weeks pregnant! I waited so long to take a pregnancy test because I thought it was just menopause at 38 years old. I went in for a 10 week doctor appointment today. My new favorite sound in the world is the sound of that little heartbeat. I know without a doubt it had a lot to do with fertilaid. I told my doctor about it. Super nice man, but he just smiled with a ‘whatever you say’ look but that’s OK. I would and have recommended this product without question.
It Works!, March 05, 2009
I have tried to get pregnant on and off for 10 years without success. I went on the pill for 2 years in order to escape the pressure of infertility but after one year off the pill, I could not have a cycle less than 55 days long and most of my cycles were almost 3 months long. My doctor said my only options were to take more hormones and that was not something I could put my body through again. I read reviews of Fertilaid and doubted I would experience much of a change, but I gave it a chance because the ingredients were healthy. I hoped that it would help my cycle regulate. My first cycle after taking Fertilaid was 44 days which was a huge improvement. I am happy to report that after 6 weeks of using Fertilaid, I am pregnant. I underwent artificial insemination 5 times in my twenties but I never have been pregnant. Now, at 36 years old, I am pregnant without even trying. Thank you for helping us achieve this miracle.

I had my first child in 2007 through IVF….have been back to the doctors but stopped and figured I would try this product. I bought a two month supply for my husband and I….we didn’t even finish the first bottle and we conceived. I don’t know if it is a coincidence or not….but I’m living proof it works…..I highly recommend this product!!
REALLY WORKS!!!, January 30, 2009
I just ordered my second bottle b/c we’ve decided to TTCA. I took this for ONE MONTH back in 2007 and got pg immediately! I know of 2 other people that got pg after only one month of FertilAid! I now have a 15mo old (in addition to my 5yo). I got pg on Clomid with my first, but after months of Clomid for my second, it didn’t work. I HIGHLY recommend this product!
It Works, January 27, 2009
After taking Fertilaid for 2 months I got pregnant!
Because of a high level of prolactin it was difficult for me to get pregnant. I was prescribed bromocriptine. The side effects were horrible! I got pregnant and sadly lost my baby at 6 months. (incompetent Cervics) I decided I wanted something natural this time so I tried Fertilaid. The Chasteberry ingredient helped to lower my prolactin.
7 months to go, all the best everyone. Hope our dreams come true.

i was very skeptical of fertilaid. i have had infertility problems for years. have undergone various tests, treatments and procedures to no avail. on a whim, because i had exhausted alot of other options, i decided to try fertilaid. i am thrilled to report after 1 month on fertilaid i am finally pregnant!!! i am totally jazzed and would suggest this product to any woman struggling with infertility.

Thank you, December 12, 2009
We had been trying for 16 years to have a child. We tried everything and were told to stop as we both had problems, April 2007. Started in May 2007 Fertiaid men and women as away to rebalance my body after all the clomid and just to see. Well shock of shocks we got pregnant Sept 07. We now have a wonderful health happy 29 month old son and trying for another. Thank you so much you have no idea how much having our son means to us. nothing like being told “Your broken give up now” exact words…and to prove the Doctors wrong.
Again thank you….
FertilAid helped us have one child and we are planning on another!, December 08, 2009
I have been meaning to write this review for quite awile now, and I’m finally getting around to it. I need to give you a little background on our trying to conceive, etc., before I rave about this product. I have very irregular cycles and very long cycles. My husband was tested, and his sperm did not meet the minimum requirements the testing would consider okay for his the sperm “swimming speed” and morphology. We were told that we “could” conceive, but the chances would be slim with both of us having issues with fertility. Our next step was going to be fertility drugs, etc. Since neither one of us wanted to use the fertility drugs if we didn’t have to, we both thought we would give FertilAid for Men and Women a try. I had seen an ad for FertilAid in a magazine at my doctor’s office. If the FertilAid didn’t seem to help after a year, then we would try the fertility drugs. Up to the point of deciding to try FertilAid, we had been trying to conceive for three years with no luck. With each passing month and no pregnancy, it was getting very stressful and emotional. We ordered FertilAid for Men & Women. We both started to take the FertilAid. Within three months of taking FertilAid, we were PREGNANT!!!! We couldn’t believe it. Sadly, though, at 12 weeks, we lost our baby. We were told that we could try again after three months. After the three-month waiting time, we took FertilAid again. After taking the FertilAid again for three more months and trying to conceive, we were PREGNANT! We were so very excited and scared at the same time. This time, all went well with the pregnancy; and we are the very, very proud parents of a wonderful little boy. Our son is now a year old. Like I said, I wanted to write this review for a while; and I’m finally getting to it. We plan on trying to have another baby, and we will definitely be using FertilAid again. We believe that without the help of FertilAid and God, we wouldn’t have our beautiful son. When I was taking FertilAid, I could tell that my cycle was getting to be what would be considered normal, at least for me.
