Fairhaven Health Fertility Supplement Review and Giveaway

As a lot of the readers may know, we have been trying to get pregnant with our last baby for close to two years now. It’s been a struggle from trying on our own, to trying with fertility meds, and back to trying on our own again. I have been through a lot in the last 6 months. I have been on fertility meds for 5 cycles between May and October (we took a month rest in July) and was able to get pregnant in August but had an early miscarriage in September. We tried another round of meds with a cycle that began in September and I got pregnant again but miscarried in October. I decided that we needed a break from the meds, to allow my body to just recooperate, and to allow time for me to heal emotionally from back to back miscarriages.

In that time, I spent a lot of time reading on the infertility message boards that I frequent, and came across a few interesting options to try instead of clomid. I came across Fairhaven Health, who not only carries products for women, but they also carry supplements, teas and test kits for men too! Sometimes fertility issues are not just on the lady’s side.

I was lucky enough to be sent some products to try for my last cycle, and I was very excited to see what would happen. I had never tried any alternatives before.

FertileAid for Women is a supplement that you can take to improve reproductive health. It restores hormonal balance which in turn encourages regular ovulation and regulates your cycle. It is ObGyn formulated and recommended for those struggling with female infertility. It is a natural blend of vitamins and herbs that includes chasteberry (vitex), red clover blossom, siberian ginseng, and gingko biloba. As soon as I got the package in the mail, I began taking the FertileAid. I was on day 3 or 4 of my cycle, and I began using ovulation strips around day 10. I ovulated on day 15! You want to take 3 of these a day (I take them all at one time) from any point in your cycle up til a pregnancy is confirmed, or you get your period. There is a 1 month supply (90 pills) in the bottle. You can purchase FertileAid for Women for $28.95 for a one month supply, or get the value pack which is 1 bottle for you and one bottle for your husband/boyfriend for $54.95 on sale now.

FertileAid for Women

Risking embarrassment here, I will tell you that I don’t know if its because I am approaching 35, or just because of being under so much stress, but my libido comes and goes, and it tends to have an impact on my cervical fluid. When you approach ovulation, your body goes through changes and when you get ready to ovulate, you normally have what is referred to as “ewcm” or, “egg white cervical mucus”. Well, there are times where I barely have any. This particular cervical fluid is crucial for conception. Without it, the sperm cannot survive and will die off before even reaching your egg. I work out, so I drink a lot of water which should help with dryness “down there”, but sometimes it doesn’t. Fairhaven Health has a solution for that.

FertileCM, which can be taken at the same time as the FertileAid, helps enhance your cervical mucus- both the quality and quantity. The ingredients in FertileCM have also been shown to support female arousal and sexual sensitivity and strengthen the uterine lining, both of which can increase chances for successful conception. I can speak from experience that this has worked greatly for me. I noticed a huge change in my cervical fluid before ovulation, and actually still had some around the time that I ovulated, although not a ton, I normally do not notice anything. Don’t be discouraged if you cannot physically see it on the toilet paper every time you wipe. Sometimes I would see a ton, and then other times I wouldn’t notice much, but it doesn’t always make it to the toilet paper. You want it to remain inside where it belongs! By increasing vascular blood flow to the uterus, FertileCM has been shown increase endometrial secretions and help strengthen the uterine lining for implantation of a fertilized egg. You take 3 pills in divided doses with food, and you have to try to drink at least 64 oz of water which also helps with your cervical fluid. You also want to discontinue use once pregnancy has been confirmed by either blood or urine test. FertileCM retails for $19.95 a bottle.

FertileCM

Lastly, a new product that I got to try is Fertile Detox. FertileDetox is designed to promote reproductive health and improve fertility by promoting the efficient elimination of environmental toxins from the body. Everything from the air we breath, the water we drink and the things that we use to maintain our homes can effect your body. Chronic exposure to everyday environmental toxins can effect reproductive health. Toxic overload can decrease sperm health in men and cause menstrual cycle abnormalities in women, and can also interfere with the healthy development of a growing fetus. This blend contains vitamins, minerals, amino acids, herbs and special ingredients that support the body’s own detoxification system. It contains probiotics to help the immune and digestive system, as well as B6, B12 and folic acid, some things that a lot of people are deficient in. I recently visited a fertility doctor and she has put me on a prescription supplement on just folic acid, B6 and B12. The daily recommended dose is 3 pills, and again you discontinue use once pregnancy is confirmed. Fertile Detox retails for $34.95.

So while its not proven that taking these supplements will indeed get you pregnant, I am convinced that they do improve your cycle health. My cycles tend to vary between 14-32 days and ovulation can be as early as day 10 and as late as day 17, I did ovulate on time while taking the FertileAid. I also noticed an improvement in my cervical fluid while taking the FertileCM. Although I was not provided  this particular product, I did use Pre-Seed fertility friendly personal lubrication as recommended to me by friends on the infertility board and will continue to use it. It’s great if you have less than quality cervical fluid during your fertile time.  I assume that you want to know what the verdict is with this cycle for me. Did I get pregnant or not?  Well, I hadn’t been on fertility meds in months, and I was only taking these 3 supplements listed above as well as my prenatal vitamins, and yes, I did get pregnant. Unfortunately for me, it resulted in yet another early miscarriage which has lead me to a fertility specialist to get to the root of the problem, which for me may happen to be low progesterone. I am not sure if it was the FertileAid that helped get me pregnant, but in months prior to taking these supplements, I did not get pregnant. I am finishing out my bottle of FertileAid with this new cycle and I am getting ready to order another bottle in case I run out! If this natural cycle doesn’t work for me, then my Dr. wants to persue something a little stronger but I will still take my FertileCm!

If you have been trying to get pregnant for awhile, or if you have just begun trying, I want you to give these supplements a try. Fairhaven Health is giving a one month supply of all 3 supplements to one of our One Little Mister followers!

  7. Cagney Breese says:

    Thanks for the giveaway! Been TTC for 6 1/2 years.

  8. Hi Rhiana – we share some of the forums on Fertility Friend…in fact you just gave me the heads up on the progesterone cream (thank you!!!! it’s like having a sis online :) . I’ve been taking Fertilaid & FertileCM and hoping for another miracle baby. These are great products. God Bless you on your journey to your next miracle, I’m so sorry for your losses…you have little angels who can pray for you! :)

    • Hey there! What is your name on FF? I cannot remember? I’ve been trying to non-chelantly post the giveaway on there too, in hopes of maybe helping someone!

  9. Oh my goodness, you have been through a lot. I’m so sorry! We’ve also been trying for a while, 16 months now, for our second baby. Before we had our son I had 2 miscarriages, and last summer after trying for 7 months I had an early miscarriage. Testing showed I have severely low progesterone levels which sounds like could be your issue as well. I’m on Clomid now and this month I’m also on progesterone starting at ovulation. I DEMANDED that my doctor actually test, test, test my progesterone levels several times to finally get to the bottom of this, and hopefully it will work. Progesterone , as you know, is essential for a long enough luteal phase but also in a healthy uterine lining, and helping your body hold a pregnancy. That could be why you’ve experienced so many losses. :( My doctor didn’t want to put me on progesterone until confirming pregnancy through a blood test, however, upon further discussion she told me it is safe and okay to start taking right at ovulation. Why risk it I said??! Why so hesitant to do everything we can?! I have such low levels that to even get to the point of a blood test might be too late, which is what I believe happened my first month on Clomid. I got a positive 3 days before I was due to start but the blood work the next day showed it was a false-positive. UGH. Anyway, just thought I’d share! I wish you all the best and hope your doctor can get to the bottom of this for you! I’ll probably be seeing a naturopathic dr soon so they will test everything in my body too. Since everything is connected, several things can be causing these infertility issues we have. Everything from diet to hormone imbalances to deficiencies. Please email me if you’d like a fertility buddy!! :)

    • Thank you Ashley. Yeah my progesterone was pretty low w/ my losses. I think the highest it has gotten was a 13.8 which wasnt bad, but for some reason I still lost the baby. I am now 9DPO, and had my progesterone tested today so I am hoping to get the results tomorrow. I am not getting any positive preggo tests yet though, but with my others I tested positive later, so we shall see. I don’t have a luteal phase defect. My LP is actually normal length anywhere between 14-18 days!

  10. would soo love to win this! battled 7 years of infertility before my daughter was born and again battling it.

  11. Charlene Luke says:

  14. Amanda Alvarado says:

    We have been trying for almost 3 years since we lost our youngest baby girl at 30 weeks. There is nothing medically wrong with either of us – we have both been checked so we aren’t sure what is going on especially since we had no trouble with either of our dd’s and they would have been 18 months apart.

    Hello, I was told at age 32 that I was post menopausal and would never have children. I am now 2 months shy of 36 years old. I have been reading about some of your products..My hot flashes, night sweats, low sex drive, energy and so on is driving my insane. The doctor put me on Estrogen pills 3 years ago and I took them for a year and they did nothing. I have not had a period in 3 years and have excepted that I will never conceive. My questions is, do you think that I should give Fertile Aid a try mainly for my hot flashes and night sweats?? Any comments would be greatly appreciated..

    Desperate!!
