Hi there! I started taking 1000mg Vitex my last cycle to try and increase my LP, which had been very short since coming off birth control. First cycle was 18 days, the next 2 were 22 days, each time ovulating around the 14/15th. Something seems to have worked as I am now 4+4 pregnant!
Testimonial posted 7/2015: I used this product [Fertilica Progesterone Cream] to help lengthen my luteal phase. I noticed a difference in the first month I used it. And by the second month, I was pregnant! Thank you so much!
Update 1/8/2016: We had been trying for our second baby for a few months and got pregnant. Unfortunately we lost that baby about a week after we found out we were expecting. I found out my progesterone levels were low with that pregnancy and I noticed I was spotting for a week or so before my period was due. I decided that I would try using the progesterone cream to see if that made a difference in my spotting issue as well as help a baby implant properly. I noticed a huge difference in my cycle the first month I used it! I only spotted a day or two before I was expecting my period to begin! It was such a big difference from over a week of spotting to only a day or two before I started. Then the second month I used the product, we found out we were expecting again! This time I went and had my blood drawn to check my levels, and everything checked out great this time! My Dr. then prescribed me progesterone to take for the first trimester. I am happy to announce that I just had our second baby 2 weeks ago. I am so thankful that I found this company and decided to try their products! I truly believe that it had everything to do with us conceiving a baby and having a healthy pregnancy!
He came 2 weeks early at 38 weeks, and on my 30th Birthday! It was quite the birthday present 🙂 He is such a blessing added to our family. Thank you for your products that helped bring him here to us.
After a miscarriage 9 months ago, I noticed my cycles were definitely not how they should be. I was experiencing 10 day luteal phases and periods lasting up to 12 days every cycle. I also was actively trying to get pregnant and it wasn’t happening. I went to a couple of doctors and they basically told me my body just needed more time to recover from the miscarriage. I knew my cycle could be encouraged to get back on track with some help from herbs. After asking the herbalists at Natural-Fertility-Info.com many questions I decided on vitex. I took vitex for two months and was starting to see improvement in my cycles. The third month I added in maca. I was also taking my whole food prenatal and an additional 100 mg of b6 alongside a food based b-complex. I stuck to the fertility diet as much as possible. I was pregnant that third month on vitex! I had my first ultrasound last week, which showed a healthy baby measuring right on according to my last period. I am now 9 weeks pregnant.
12/7/2015 Update! Read my entire success story interview and meet my baby here…
I had 3 kids and was fortunately able to get pregnant fairly easily with all of them. We wanted to have a 4th and started trying… This pregnancy we were heartbroken when it ended in a miscarriage. I never ended up miscarrying on my own so I had a D&C done. We waited the recommended time frame and then began trying again. This time getting pregnant didn’t come as easily. I am very aware of my body and could tell something was wrong. I wanted to take a natural route to helping my body heal properly and to get pregnant again. This lead me to the Natural Fertility Shop…
I had a very uneventful 1st pregnancy which resulted in a healthy happy boy in August of 2011. Then, I had a miscarriage at 6 weeks in June 2012 which is probably around the time that I found your site. Even though I haven’t been tested for low progesterone I think that may have been the problem as my luteal phase is only 10 days and I have low basal temps…96.5 before ovulation and 97.9 after ovulation. My Dr. put me on progesterone suppositories which greatly helped with lengthening my luteal phase. In January 2013 I got my BFP and had another healthy boy on September 11th, 2013.
My husband and I want a large family so we started ttc again soon after giving birth. Once my cycle returned around 3 months postpartum I was having light spotting before my period as well as a short luteal phase of only 9 days for three consecutive cycles. My Dr. put me on progesterone again which definitely helped. After doing some research on your site I came across the articles on doing castor oil packs and decided to give it a try. I’m happy to say that after only doing the castor oil packs for one cycle I got my BFP in August of 2014. I had another healthy boy on April 6th!
We plan on ttc baby #4 as soon as my cycle returns. I’ll definitely be doing the castor oil packs again and continuing to take my prenatal, maca, vitamin d3, b-complex and the latest addition to my supplements/superfood thanks to your royal jelly. Along with eating well and exercising daily I’m hoping that we’ll be able to get pregnant again soon!
I really appreciate all of the information on your site as well as the staff who have answered my fertility questions in the past. This was especially helpful when I was going through my miscarriage and was so scared about it happening again.
Without you guys I’d be much less informed about all things fertility related. I credit you with helping me be a healthier person and have a greater understanding of what’s going on with my body so that I’m able to conceive a little easier.
Also just so you know I’ve referred several of my friends to your website and they’ve all found it as valuable as I have. So thank you again for everything you do! I know it’s a lot of time and research, but it’s so appreciated!
Thank you so much for everything you do!
We have four children and were ready for a fifth, but I had some concern as to how easily I might conceive. I have had symptoms of estrogen dominance since my early 20’s and have used progesterone cream in the past to lengthen my shortening cycles and moderate all of the other little symptoms that go along with it. I used the Fertilica in the months before attempting to conceive to make sure that my cycles were normal. Conceiving our first son took over a year and I believe that by balancing my hormones properly before starting I was blessed with a pregnancy in the first month of trying.
I heard about this company from youtube and her knowledge really impressed me and as I ran out of my cream I decided to switch to Fertilica from what I was using! I love the pump action of the Fertilica cream with automatic dosing. I reviewed this product and they read that I was still using it in early pregnancy. Someone from the site took the time to let me know to switch to Pro-Gest for the remainder of the pregnancy. Excellent customer service, I couldn’t be more pleased!
We are very excited to receive this blessing into our home this summer and I’m very thankful for the role these progesterone creams have played in balancing my body.
10/28/13: I have two daughters and have lost four babies through unexplained miscarriages. After seeing five different doctors and being given a clean bill of health by each one, I was at the end of my rope.
When I found this website I had been toying with the idea of using vitex to help with my low progesterone and short luteal phases, but didn’t have the courage to begin using it. With the help of this community, I began with 200mg of vitex and gradually increased to 1200mg over the course of a few months. The changes were gradual at first, with my post-ovulation temperatures gradually getting higher, my pre-menstrual spotting lessening, and my luteal phases lengthening from 8 to 15 days. After being on the vitex for six months, my cycle looked absolutely perfect and the next month I was surprised to find myself pregnant! I am now 20 weeks along with another healthy baby girl!
Excerpt from “Elizabeth Pregnant After Years of Unexplained Infertility”: We were married in 2009, I was already 34 and my husband was 39. It was my first marriage, and I wasn’t quite yet ready for children, so we waited a little over a year to begin trying with the thought that we should probably start, as we weren’t getting any younger.
To my disappointment, it wasn’t going to be that easy. Month after month we tried, and nothing happened. After about six months, my gynecologist referred me to a fertility specialist, and I went through testing. An HSG showed my tubes were open, no blockages. Further testing showed I had plenty of healthy eggs, “like a 20-year old!” in the words of the doctor. My periods were like clockwork, and always had been… We decided that although we really wanted a child, we were not prepared to go the route of fertility treatments or IVF, and had resigned ourselves to the attitude “whatever happens, happens…”. We figured if it was meant to be, it would work out but if not, we were prepared to resign ourselves to the fact that we would just never have children.
After about two and a half years going on like this, I was searching the web for ANY information on how to boost fertility naturally, and came across Hethir’s site… I decided to give the Fertility Cleanse a try as kind of a last-ditch effort. After my next cycle ended, I began the cleanse. I finished the cleanse, and figured that I must not have gotten a full month supply, as I was out of capsules and tea but my period hadn’t come yet. (By this time I had stopped watching my cycle closely, we had kind of given up on timing things and ‘trying’ anymore.) Upon looking at the calendar and date of my last period I suddenly realized – my period was already one week late!!! This NEVER happened. Still not believing I could be pregnant, I went out and bought a pack of pregnancy tests and lo and behold – PREGNANT!!!
I found your website earlier this year and have used it as a resource for my fertility issues. After two and a half years of trying to conceive, we finally did this past July, and I am happy and healthy at 14 weeks with my first baby. I am so very grateful to have found natural fertility info and Hethir. Week after week, her email newsletter spoke directly to me in regards to such topics as luteal phase defect and fertility nutrition and progesterone and BBT. All the pieces finally came together with this knowledge and application, along with regular acupuncture, fertility yoga and meditation. I was knowledgable enough about my cycle to request bio-identical progesterone supplementation during the first ten weeks of pregnancy and with Hethir’s latest newsletter (today) about pregnancy supplements, her guidance continues with me through my pregnancy journey. Today was a great opportunity for me to express my gratitude and share my story.
