I just recently went this route myself.. Vitamin E and D will help stimulate your pituitary glands to help with reproduction but it also helps the body be healthy and ready for a new baby.

Best of luck to you.

I have heard this, and think the premise is that by taking them you are ensuring that your body is getting all of the nutrients it needs, creating optimal body conditions. In addition, if you are already taking them pre-conception, when you do conceive, your baby will be reaping the benefits from day 1, as opposed to going without until you suspect that you might be pregnant, and/or your HCG is high enough to yield a positive pregnancy test, which for some is after a missed period... a couple of weeks after conception has taken place.
