Pregnancy Symptoms On FertilAid
Does Fertilaid cause a lot of pregnancy symptoms? I’ve noticed a huge change since taking them, but pregnancy test says negative :(
I am not aware of the fact that FertilAid can give pregnancy symptoms. If you are really sure that you are 100% not pregnant (test in 48 hours just in case you are pregnant but not enough to have a positive home pregnancy test) and have noticed these changes while on FertilAid you may want to talk to your doctor before continuing with this supplement.
FertilAid contains the herbal remedy Vitex agnus castus that supports ovulation and balances the hormones.

If you had irregular periods or hormonal imbalance before taking fertility, this herb will produce similar symptoms of pregnancy because it supports the production of progesterone during the second phase of the menstrual cycles.
Progesterone is also the hormone in change of pregnancy. In fact after ovulation the corpus luteum produces progesterone and continues to produce progesterone up until the end of the first trimester when the placenta takes over until birth.
If you were not ovulating regularly before and now you are, your body is responding to this stimulation of increased progesterone production. This is not necessarily a bad thing.
Many women who experience estrogen dominance may experience a deficiency in progesterone for an extended period of time; an increase in progesterone production will temporarily enhance estrogen breast receptors sensitivity.
This is why some women may experience breast tenderness due to water retention. These effects should be temporary as hormonal balance is reached.
Even if Vitex is perfectly safe and well tolerated by al women, you have to consider that Vitex also cause side effects like upset stomach, nausea and diarrhea. In rare cases, some women experience tiredness, dryness mouth insomnia, weight gain due to water retention, headache, body ache, and irregular bleeding during menses.
Vitex should not be taken in conjunction with fertility drugs or prescription medication as there can be interactions.
If FertilAid is the only supplement you are taking and you are positive it is causing your pregnancy-like symptoms, I would recommend calling FertilAid customer service and ask for advice. Of course FertilAid also contains other herbal remedies and vitamins that may be responsible for your symptoms.
Every woman is different and so not all respond at the same way to the same remedies. These symptoms may be temporary and go away once hormonal balance is reached. For example, if your periods were irregular or you suffer PCOS or missed periods, Vitex is actually stimulating ovulation after months by balancing FSH/LH levels and supporting progesterone production.
Make sure to eat a very healthy diet and avoid xenoestrogens
in your life as much as possible as they can disrupt hormonal imbalance. Check your cosmetics, your shampoos and especially your hair dyes.
If have never done a detox, this could be the time to consider doing one. FertilAid has FertileDetox
, which can be taken together with FertilAid for women.
