Female Fertility Support Synergy

Herbs perfectly blended for female reproductive harmony!

Tribulus (Tribulus terrestris): This herb is specific to supporting hormonal balance. This herb has been show to promote regular ovulation, while also improving timing of ovulation. One study performed on 36 women who were not ovulating, showed that that 67% realized normal ovulation after only 2-3 months of consistent use of Tribulus.

Rhodiola (Rhodiola rosea): Rhodiola works to enhance fertility. Great support for overall thyroid function. It has also been shown to improve egg maturation. In a study of forty women suffering from amenorrhea (loss of menstrual cycles), 100 mg of Rhodiola was given twice daily for 2 weeks, or an injection for 10 days. In some women, the regimen was repeated 2-4 times. Remarkably, normal menses was restored in 25 women, 11 of whom became pregnant. Physicians have reported cases of women who had failed to conceive with standard fertility drugs, who then became pregnant within several months of beginning Rhodiola rosea extract.

Vitex, Chaste Tree Berry (Vitex agnus-castus): Vitex supports hormonal balance in the body by having an effect on the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis (hormonal feedback loop). Vitex has been found to help normalize ovulation. In one study, Vitex helped normalize progesterone levels and increased the luteal phase from 5.4 days to 11.4 days. In addition, two double-blind studies show Vitex extract increases a woman’s fertility and chances of successful conception. Vitex is an incredible hormone balancer, which adapts to women’s different needs.

Red Raspberry (Rubus idaeus): An herb that supplies high levels of iron and other minerals to the uterus, it can help to build a nourishing uterine lining that is ready for conception. Raspberry leaf works to tone the uterine muscles and normalize blood flow during menses. This is one of the best normalizing herbs for the female reproductive organs. It’s high nutritional content is a valuable tool for women preparing for pregnancy. Raspberry leaves are high in carotenoids, citric acid, tannins,vitamin A, B complex, C, and E. They also have an easily assimilated form of iron, calcium, phosphorus, potassium and silica.

Alfalfa (Medicago sativa): Alfalfa is an excellent nutritive herb. This nutrient rich plant is loaded with vitamins A, D, E, K, minerals and iron. Iron is essential for healthy ovulation, menstrual cycle, uterine lining, circulation and energy levels. Having adequate iron levels prior to pregnancy is important in preventing anemia in pregnancy.

Dong Quai (Angelica sinensis): A wonderful reproductive toner which increases circulation to the uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes. This is one of the best herbs for supporting uterine health. Dong Quai is an effective aid for regulating hormonal control; promoting a healthy menstrual cycle.

Motherwort (Leonurus cardiaca): Motherwort is extremely nourishing and relaxing to the nerves. This herb works to relieve pelvic congestion, while reducing any pain in the reproductive organs. Increases circulation to the uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes. It aids in relaxing the nervous system, while at the same time improving uterine tone through slight stimulation. It has been shown to improve uterine muscle strength.

Maca (Lepidium meyenii): Maca is a nourishing food for the endocrine system, aiding both the pituitary, adrenal, and thyroid glands (all involved in hormonal balance). Maca may help to increase progesterone levels, which are essential to carrying a healthy pregnancy.

Enhancing Enzyme Blend
You may be unfamiliar with enzymes, that is okay. Enzymes are proteins that catalyze chemical reactions in the body. They are essential to proper function in the body. Pregnancy Prep contains 4 enzymes to aid our body in some essential bodily functions.

Amylase- Amylase works to break down starch into sugar. This is essential for proper blood sugar levels in the body.

Protease- Protease works by eating away foreign tissues including those present from endometriosis, uterine fibroids, scar tissue and adhesion formation. Protease also aids the body in proper blood formation and detoxification.

Lipase- Lipase is essential in proper digestion of dietary fats.

Lactase- This enzyme is needed to digest lactose in milk products. It is very important to digest any sort of dairy products, especially if you are a person who is deficient in lactase, which leads to lactose intolerance.

I cannot stress enough the importance of thoughtful preparation for pregnancy. If you are someone who has struggled to get pregnant, or just want to give yourself the best chance at successful conception and pregnancy, consider the benefits of Pregnancy Prep! It is a wonderful gift to yourself, your baby and your entire family to give your body the best support naturally, prior to conception. Pregnancy Prep is specially formulated to support overall reproductive function in women. We want you to have the best chance at a successful pregnancy possible!

  1. Hi, after quitting birth control 4 years ago, after a few months I quit having periods. I took some natural supplements, never had a period on my own, but did end up getting pregnant and having a baby regardless. I am now 16 mo PP and quit breastfeeding 2 months ago but have not had a period. My dr recommends I take a round of progesterone pills (Aygestin) once every 3 months so that I will have a period. I would like to start trying to get pregnant again. Would Pregnancy Prep be the best natural thing for me to try or would a different combination of herbs be better? Can I combine this with Aygestin or should I not do them both? I already eat a very clean healthy diet…Thanks!

    • Hello AP!

      Congratulations on the birth of your baby!

      Pregnancy Prep is a wonderful product, yet we can’t suggest combining it with prescription progesterone unless your doctor will guide you in doing so. It is great that you already eat a healthy diet! Consider then the additional tips we offer in our guide, How To Get Your Period Back.

      It may be worth revisiting the natural supplements you used to get your period back before conceiving your child… If you would like support in knowing if they are right for you now, or guidance in creating the best natural fertility program for your needs now, our fertility herbalists are on hand to do so. They offer Fertility Consultations and are happy to work with you.

    • Thank you for the info. What I plan on doing is just one round of progesterone per my doctor, but after that I would like to try some natural methods to maintain a cycle, rather than continuing on the progesterone. So could I start Pregnancy Prep after completing one cycle length with the progesterone (not doing them at the same time)? Is it safe for me to take Pregnancy Prep while currently trying to conceive? Thanks!

    • Dear AP,

      If you feel Pregnancy Prep would be useful to you, then it could be started after the progesterone is completed. It is fine to actively try to conceive while taking Pregnancy Prep. It is to be stopped if you think you may be or upon first determination of pregnancy.

      Best wishes!

  2. Hi, I’ve been taking these Pregnancy Prep pills for almost 2 weeks; is it safe to take Saw Palmetto (for hirsutism) at the same time? Thanks in advance!

  3. Thank you for your articles! On my browser I have 15 windows are opened at the same time, all the articles are so informative. Thank you so much again!

    Hello, can you please confirm that 2 capsules of pregnancy prep per day or 4? am a bit confused…..I take 1 with my morning meal and another 1 with my dinner. I read that recommended dosage of Vitex is about 900-1000mg a day, so can I take Vitex as well?
    And about tribulus which pregnancy prep includes, is it ok to take preg prep after ovulation?

    Thank you, warmest regards

    • Dear Jahana,

      I think each of us can relate! I have about 15 browser windows open too. 😉 Always still learning something new!

      Suggested use of Pregnancy Prep as a dietary supplement is to take 2 Capsules one to two times a day with food. So, that’s either 2 or 4 per day. In general we suggest starting with the lowest suggested dose and working up from there if need be.

      Fertilica Vitex can be combined with Pregnancy Prep as can Tribulus. Pregnancy Prep can be taken all cycle long. It is for women with irregular ovulation timing or anovulatory cycles that Tribulus is suggested from cycle days 5-14.

      All my best!

  4. Hi im 26 and have pcos , i do not ovulate or have regular periods , only one or two a year to be honest . My partner and i have been trying to concieve for five years now and i am working hard to bring down my bmi as its still a little over whats classed as normal weight , i am very interested in trying pregnancy prep before i go down the route of drugs from the fertility clinic , would pregnancy prep work for me and what over all benifits should i expect? Obviousally the goal is to concieve but ive read many mixed reviews on pregnancy prep ? Should it help ? If you could get back to me many thanks

    • Dear Helen,

      While we value the purpose of Pregnancy Prep, we have found other herbs, nutritional supplements and natural therapies more helpful for women with PCOS along with dietary and lifestyle changes.

      As you continue to work on your ideal BMI, consider learning more about supporting the body in re-learning balance by promoting healthy hormonal balance, a healthy uterine lining, regular ovulation, improved estrogen metabolism, reduced cravings for sweets and improved digestion. Learn more and how to do the above through our PCOS Fertility Diet article.

      I hope this is helpful!

  5. Is there a recommended time in the cycle that this should be started or can it just be started whenever and should be taken throughout the cycle? I am planning to take this instead of Clomid to bring on ovulation and then switch to progesterone cream for the last two weeks of the cycle. Thoughts?

    • Dear Anya,

      Pregnancy Prep can be started at any time during the menstrual cycle and taken all cycle long without a break (even during menstruation). While natural progesterone cream may be helpful as well, it is only suggested to be used if progesterone levels have been confirmed low through testing. Pregnancy Prep and Fertilica Natural Progesterone Cream can be combined should you choose to use them both.

      The article Clomid: Natural Alternatives to Clomid may be helpful as well.

      All my best!

  6. Are you able to take Vitanica Pregnancy Prep with a separate Vitex vitamin?

    • Dear KM,

      Vitanica Pregnancy Prep can be taken with Fertilica Vitex capsules or liquid extract heeding the suggested use of Vitex which is 900-1000mg per day.

  7. Where can I buy all these ingredients?

    • Dear Evelyn,

      Each of these ingredients has already been combined in the product Pregnancy Prep available from the Natural Fertility Shop.

      I am not certain where you can find loose herbs where you live, but one well-known, reputable resource for loose herbs is Mountain Rose Herbs (we are not an affiliate, but value the quality of their products).

  8. If I am taking Rhodiola, and do get pregnant, is it ok to keep taking it while pregnant?
    It has helped me immensely with stress so I’m a bit apprehensive to stop taking it…
    Thank you!

    • Elizabeth Willett, MA, CH

      Hello Maria!

      I am very thankful you have found support in managing your stress levels! This being said, we can not support taking Rhodiola in pregnancy. Consider finding a healthcare provider, herbalist or midwife to guide you in either taking it or not, as well as ways to continue to manage stress while pregnant.

      Best wishes!

  9. Hello,
    I’m 34 y/o and I don’t ovulate and menstruate at all after stopping BCP last year. The only period I got was after 25 days on Estrace and 10 days on Provera. I did Clomid and Menopur injections and still had no ovulation. I’m doing acupuncture 2 x week for the last 2 months. I eat healthy, BMI 19.75, take vitamins. I did liver cleanse, love it! – highly improved my digestion track and BMI tried Vitex, Dong Quai, and Maca, but had really bad side effects. I’ve been taking Rhodiola for the last week and really like it. My question is: can I combine Rhodiola with Motherwort and Tribulus to restore ovulation and menses?

    Thank you!

    • Elizabeth Willett, MA, CH

      Dear Martha,

      I am sorry to hear of your challenges.

      Rhodiola can be taken with Motherwort and Tribulus.

      If you are interested in the support of our Fertility Herbalist, you might consider a Fertility Consultation to support you in supporting your body given your fertility issues.

      I wish you well!

  10. Hi Dalene,
    I’m 44 and ttc. I didn’t have problems conceiving my other pregnancies – I have a 3 year old daughter and would like a sibling closer in age for her (I have 2 older sons from a previous marriage; 22 and 23 years). I’ve been eating right, not drinking and trying to keep my stress levels down. A friend of mine told me of Maca powder which I’ve been taking on and off for about a month and a half. My husband and I have been trying for 8 months now, and I’m convinced I don’t ovulate every month. I’m at a point in thought that I’m too old to conceive. I haven’t seen Pregnancy Prep here in South Africa, if I mix Maca powder with other natural herbs would it work for me, or would you need to take them all together ?
    Regards, Megan

    • Hi Megan,
      I am not sure if Pregnancy Prep is available in South Africa. We carry it in and ship to that country though. It is made by Vitanica. Pregnancy Prep is a specific herbal blend and the herbs really work well together, rather than alone. Maca may be a good place to begin, but at 44, it is likely your egg health and count, along with hormone levels are playing a major role your struggles to conceive. We have a great guide for women who are over 40, to help them prepare in the best way possible for a healthy pregnancy. You can read that here: http://natural-fertility-info.com/preparing-for-conception-over-40.html

      Learn how to chart your cycle, to find out if you are ovulating here: http://natural-fertility-info.com/guide-to-fertility-charting.html

      It is not impossible to carry a natural pregnancy at your age, but to be honest it is very challenging to conceive naturally once you inch up to 45+. I hope this doesn’t offend you (not my intention), but I find it really healthy to create a “plan B”, should you really, really want a sibling for your other child. Plan B could be IVF, embryo adoption, egg donation or adoption, should you find out your fertility is declining.

      I hope that helps.

    • Thanks for the valuable feedback, I will look around at local shops and see if available, if not will order online. I’m fast approaching 45 (October) so will try till then.
      Regards, Megan

  11. Update 2014 – We are back! We have been away for a while and we sure have missed all of your wonderful questions and thoughts on our articles. Moving forward, one of our staff herbalists will be here to respond to comments! We look forward to connecting with our readers once again!

  12. Is this safe to take if you are pregnant?

  13. Hi! I was curious if this is something I should look into. I had a miscarriage before my son was born and a blighted ovum almost 2 years ago. I am struggling to conceive now with my current boy friend, who has been told that he can’t have children. We recently purchased Tribulus Extract from our local health food store for him to try. He is getting frustrated with not being able to conceive as am I. I want to do anything I can to have another baby. Please help 🙂

  14. Is it better to take an all in one like Pregnancy prep or to take the herbs separately? I plan on ordering The Fertile Cleanse next week. Not sure where to go after that. Is it best to get the smoothie kit after the cleanse? I have not had a period since January. If I do not get my period back after the cleanse, does it change the direction in which I should go? Having never been diagnosed with anything, I am not sure which kit to go with after the cleanse. I already eat correctly, exercise, drink lots of water, I quit coffee a week ago. Thanks for all you do!

  15. Hi Darlene,

    Is it safe to take pre natal and pregnancy prep together after the fertility cleanse?

    Many thanks

  16. can i do the massage,take the cleasing and take the pregnancy prep at the same time.

    • Hi Dorcas A,

      The Fertility Cleanse is best done first, Fertility Massage is fine to do with that cleanse and Pregnancy Prep. Pregnancy Prep is best begun the cycle after the Fertility Cleanse is over.

      Best Wishes,

      Dalene

  17. Its look very Fantastic & I have a feeling its efficacy is to be great.

  18. Are these produts suitable for women with pcos

  19. am currently taking alive bee powder, ultral greens, maca powder,and fertilica whey protein altogether at the same time, is it good for me and my husband?or is it overdose pls let me know. Is pregnancy preparation both for male and female ? or for females only?.

    • Hi Aida,

      Alive Bee Power Royal Jelly, FertiliGreens, Fertilica Maca and FertiliWhey are safe for both men and women to consume. Those are all fine to consume at the same time, it will not be an overdose if you are taking each one at the suggested daily amount as directed on the product label. Pregnancy Prep has been shown safe to use at the same time as those other products. Pregnancy Prep is for women only.

      All the best,

      Dalene

  20. Hi there,
    i’m well into my 40’s, actually closer to 50. had a baby naturally 9 months ago and i’m still nursing part time. we would like to try for 1 more before i hit menopause, is this formula safe for BF moms, or if not, what can i take while BF to nourish/better my eggs and my chances?
    thanks in advance,
    Anabelle

    • Hi Anabelle,

      There aren’t many herbs for fertility that are recommended for breastfeeding moms. Continue taking prenatal vitamin, eat nutrient dense whole foods and consider ask your doctor if it would be okay to consume super foods like maca. Pregnancy Prep is not recommended for breastfeeding moms. It really is best to wait to begin consuming herbs for fertility until you have weaned. Raspberry Leaf & Red Clover infusion are okay to consume while breastfeeding. These two herb are very nourishing and supportive of healthy fertility.

      You could also do Self Fertility Massage, which encourages hormonal balance, reproductive organ health and more!

      Best Wishes and Congratulations on your baby!

      Dalene

  21. Heather,

    I have had 2 miscarriages in the past. I have low progesterone levels and low estrogen levels. Do you think it would be best for me to take maca, royal jelly and ultra greens or to just take the pregnancy prep?

    • Hi Stefanie Morgan,

      Based on what little information you have given me, all I can say is that all of those have been shown safe for use together. So you could take Pregnancy Prep at the same time as you are taking maca, RJ and FertiliGreens. If you need more information please contact us via email.

      All the best,

      Dalene

  22. Hi Dalene

    If I am 41 and am trying to conceive, where can I start? pregnancy preparation or go straight to egg health or fertility cleanse. Where can I start considering my age and the fact that I have been trying to conceive for 3 years now.

    • Hi Bonny,

      I would say anytime after 40 is the time to begin questioning if more needs to be done to sustain healthy fertility, especially if you do not have children yet. Because you have been trying for 3 years unsuccessfully, it sounds like it is time to see a doctor. Seeing a doctor will rule out any hindrances. The Fertility Cleanse Kit is best done first. The Fertility Cleanse in general is a great way for anyone who is experiencing fertility challenges to create a foundation for hormonal balance and a healthy uterus for implantation. Fertility Cleansing creates a “clean slate” within the body that helps the body to respond and utilize other natural remedies better. The Improve Egg Health Kit may be done at the same time as the Fertility Cleanse, but is best done for 3-6 months consistently. Pregnancy Prep has been shown safe to use with the Improve Egg Health Kit.

      Best Wishes,

      Dalene

  23. Hi, I am interested in pregnancy prep and am actively trying to conceive. Is this formula “Gluten-Free” as I’m gluten-intolerant? Also, is this formula free of soy? It looks like it’s a vegetarian formula too?

    Do u have any other recommendations for fertility in women in their early 40’s?
    I am very healthy but may be slightly blood deficient (not anemic, just blood deficient).
    Thank u,
    Marcie
