Disclaimer: I received a free 3-month supply of FertilAid for Women to try in exchange for this review. However, all opinions/comments are my own! I do not receive a commission from sales that result from this post.
This product review has been months in the making! Literally, months. FairHaven Health first reached out to me last November asking if I’d be interested in trying one of their fertility friendly products and I was SO excited for the opportunity. However, as many of you may remember, I was still on my last 3-month stint of 150mg of Clomid, really hoping it would end up in a pregnancy. I decided to put the FairHaven offer on hold, but kept in contact with them in the meantime. When January came and I still wasn’t pregnant, I decided to take FairHaven up on their offer and try FertilAid for Women.
FertilAid for Women is a vitamin/supplement formulated to help increase fertility and improve our reproductive health. What I particularly liked about this supplement is that I didn’t have to combine it with my prenatal vitamin that I’ve been taking for the last 8 years – this is a one-stop shop that not only replaces the prenatal while TTC, but also replaced several of the other supplements that I used to take.
FairHaven does recommend that you use FertilAid for Women for at least 3 months to give your body a chance to adapt before making an opinion on whether it’s working for you. I will say, I felt pretty good during the 3-month trial. I did experience a couple of perfect 30-day cycles on FertilAid for Women, and of course 1 not-so-perfect cycle that lasted about 45 days, but overall I will say I was pretty pleased with the product. I felt like I had a little more energy and my skin looked pretty good. And honestly, even though we haven’t conceived on FertilAid (yet, hehe), the fact that I can ovulate on it is a big deal. A REALLY big deal. Also, I know for a fact that my post-ovulation progesterone levels were good because I ended up with all of the symptoms of high progesterone that I talked about in my Progesterone: The Phantom Pregnancy post. I didn’t even have to take progesterone supplements to feel them either. With having PCOS and typically being anovulatory, this is kind of a big deal.
I’m really excited that FairHaven has a FertilAid for Men, too. We haven’t tried that one yet in our house, but we do intend to before pursuing IUI. Anything we can do to help our chances this fall. So far, I have been very pleased with FairHaven products. From the FertilAid, to the DreamBelly Butter, they really have some great preconception and post-conception products available.
The coolest thing? They offer volume discounts (buy multiple bottles of a product and they get cheaper per unit) as well as FREE SHIPPING. And just for Life Abundant readers, they have also offered a discount code for 10% off of their preconception/TTC products for the month of June 2015, applicable to all of the supplements and ovulation/pregnancy tests (except the OvaCue). Be sure to scroll allllll the way to the bottom of your shopping cart to add the code: LifeAbundant. And remember, this is only for the month of June!
If you try FertilAid for Women as a result of this post, or if you have tried it in the past, please let me know how you like it! I’m always interested in hearing how vitamins and supplements help other women in their fertility journeys. Sometimes even if we don’t conceive, which can be the result of so many issues, just having natural cycles is a win!
