    In need of advice....

    I apologize if I posted this in the wrong place. I am 22 years old and my husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for almost two years now. I am trying to quit smoking and lower my caffeine intake because I was told this could cause fertility problems. I was researching on the net about fertility and came across this thing called FertiBella. According to these womens posts, they all pretty much got pregnant around month two of taking it. I thought about putting in an order for it but first I wanted to get some advice. First of all, what is it and what does it do? I only have one kidney but otherwise in good health as far as I know. Would it be safe for me to take this? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    If you and your husband have been trying for a pregnancy for 2 years without success, you both need to be evaluated by a Fertility Specialist instead of spending money on this internet junk.

    It has the hormones in the birth control listed as an active ingredient in the first 2 months. It also has supplements that are supposed to help hypothyroidism among other things.

    I agree with talking to your doctor about it and several ingredients can be found in the grocery store. Folic acid, calcium, and iron are things you should be getting from a multivitamin along with good diet practices if you are trying to conceive.

    Another key factor is that the statements have not been evaluated by the FDA. I would definitely check with your doctor and have some labs checked before taking this product. It also isn't intended to cure or treat diseases, which some of the causes of infertility are.
