I just started TTC this year, and so far no luck yet. I feel because I'm already 35, I'm short on time even though a few of my friends over 35 have been naturally successful. I have been advised that if by 6 mos I do not concieve naturally, I should seek a Fertility specialist, which I will do, but in the meantime I wanted to continue TTC naturally. Co-workers of mine have recommended an herbal tea called FertiliTea, which I have read amazing results on. Curious to know if it really works or not, I was wondering if anyone here has tried it and has results or knows more about it. Any info would help! Thx

I've not tried the tea but have seen it. Sorry I can't be a help with that part but here is my story that may help give you more natural options...
After trying for years and being 33 (lost that one at 9 weeks), and 35 when I got preg again, and 36 at my last pregnancy, I feel you. I actually did Accupuncture and became pregnant right away.
The first time I did it the first day of my period and then again on day 7, was pregnant that week (my schedule is 23 days, so maybe go on day 11 if you're 28 days). The second time I went in January and again in Februaury and was pregnant the week after that second session.
I also took Fertility Vitamins that I ordered online. Hubby took the male version our first two pregnancies but I don't believe he did for our last one.

I'm not sure about the fertility tea, but have you heard of Glyconutrients, I take them for reasons other than fertility but I have heard a lot of testimonies from people that have had great success using them and falling pregnant when everything else has failed for them. Good luck

first baby at 33, second at 35 and just had my third at 38. For this recent baby the doctor prescribed me Metaformin since my glucose levels were borderline high during my second pregnancy. That worked fast. I had a friend who was prescribed clomid which also worked fast. I would recommend speaking to your OB first to see if this is a route to go.It is cheaper than fertility. Best of luck

I had my first baby at 36 and my second baby 13 months later at 37. I have friends who had their first babies even older than that and one of my friends is pregant with her first child at 40 years old. My advice regarding trying to concieve is to skip the gimic items and to eat 100% natural and gluten-free. Stop eating anything processed out of a box with tons of preservatives and ingredients. Eat your meats and veggie, some fruits, nuts and seeds. Skip eating breads, crackers, cerials and grains. You don't need them! Buy a juicer and start juicing fruits and veggies. All the chemicals and additives in our food supply are what cause a lot of women to have fertility issues and they don't even know it. Best of luck to you!
