FertailAid, Vitex and Pregnancy

Is FertailAid safe to use up until you know you are pregnant? I have read that the chasteberry in it can screw up hormones when you stop taking it and you are pregnant. This is my second month on FertailAid. I got pregnant the first month taking fertailaid and then stop taking it as soon as I found out. But unfortunately I misscarried at 6 1/2 weeks. I am so afraid of the same thing happening. Should I stop taking fertailaid when I ovulate? Or can that also cause problems?

Vitex During Pregnancy
by: Maria Gioia Atzori

Vitex (Chesteberry) is considered a fertility herb as it supports the second half of the mentrual cycle in producing progesterone. It has an action on the pituitary gland and stimulates the secretion of LH homone, thus stimulating ovulation in women who are having problem conceiving.

Vitex is also known to support the corpus luteum and address problems related to the second half of the mentrual cycle for women with short luteal phase. The use of Vitex Chasteberry during the first 10 days after ovulation can help maintain elevated progesterone levels needed to sustain an early pregnancy.

My advice is to stop taking it as soon as you have a positive pregnancy test. Vitex is a slow acting herb and it is easily tollerated by women, that's why it is added to fertility formulas.

Clomid and Fertilaid
by: Anonymous

Can one go on to Fertilaid just after taking clomid in same cycle?


No, it is best to wait until your period comes and then start taking FertilAid.

FertilAid for women is a potent herbal fertility supplement because it contains standardized herbal extracts like vitex, red clover blossom, siberian ginseng, and gingko biloba. These herbs have been support hormonal balance and should not be taken in conjunction with Clomid or other fertility drugs as they can cause herb-drug interaction.

Fertility Blessings!
