Fertility and Supplements

This post is sponsored by FERTILIFY. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
 
I don't know if I have really talked about this before. It is something that is very personal to me. I wanted to have children for as long as I can remember. Children were always a part of my life goals. So when I met my hubby, that was one of the FIRST things I asked him, if he wanted to have children. We got married relatively young, I was 21 and he was 23. And we both knew we wanted to be married at least a year before we got married, but then one turned into two then two and a half...

 
 
At family events, people would ask us constantly when we were going to try to have a baby. They would really ask me specifically. Which if you think about it, it's really too personal of a question for anyone to ask. But it was still very difficult to have to just shrug and smile, when inside I felt like crying because I was yearning for a baby. And it felt like everyone around me was getting pregnant and although I was happy, I was a little bit envious as well. Especially when it "just happened". Well why didn't it "just happen" for me?


I didn't take a fertility supplement when I was trying to get pregnant. I didn't even know they existed. But recently I was sent FERTILIFY to share my thoughts on. No we aren't currently trying, but I do have a friend who is. I also thought that some of you would like to hear about a product like this.

 
Reasons why you may want to take a fertility supplement:

Women who are interested in ways to increase fertility may want:
- To proactively safeguard their fertility now, to increase their chances of conceiving later in life
- A natural fertility boost, if they are currently trying to get pregnant.

Women who are currently trying to get pregnant are focused on:
- Preparing their bodies to carry a healthy pregnancy
- Natural ways to increase fertility

"FERTILIFY believes that today’s modern women shouldn’t have to choose between their life’s aspirations and having children. FERTILIFY believes that women need to be proactive about their reproductive health NOW, so that they can be at there reproductive best when they are ready to have children. There are a lot of issues confronting a women’s fertility today. Nationally, fertility is at an all time low as many women are choosing to have children later in life. Unfortunately, many of these women experience fertility issues, which can be both financially and emotionally difficult."
 
A fertility supplement is a hard thing to review. I can tell you how it made me feel (if any different from normal), what kind of products are listed in it, and/or educate you on the benefits, but everyone is different. And what works for one person, may not for another. And with a thing like fertility, there are a lot of things that come into play. I would talk to a doctor before you take any supplements like this and it also a good idea to get yourself checked out by a healthcare professional before you and your significant other decide to have a child anyways. I understand it can be difficult when you want to have a baby. I was there. I can't make claims that this product will make you more fertile. I can tell you that it contains Vitamin C, D, E, B12, and Folic Acid. That FERTILIFY wants you to do your research before you decide on a fertility supplement to take. I do suggest checking them out.

Did you take a fertility supplement when you were trying to conceive? Do you plan to? Are you currently? Please share your thoughts.

  1. I was lucky enough to not ever need fertility items but I know several friends who still struggle. I will have to tell them about these pills.

  3. If I could still have kids, I'd be all over this. Sadly, that option was taken away from me. I will share this to a couple gf's of mine though, thanks for the awesome post!

  4. I have not thought about it yet, still thinking of waiting a year before starting my own family. But I really glad I read this post to at least be aware of options. I know it is not comfortable topic to discuss even with friends in my case! Thanks for sharing!
