What is a fertility herb blend?

I've been reading various comments on this board relating to something called a fertility herb blend. Can anyone give me more information, or is there a book or website I can go to? Is it Chinese herbs that many have swore by?

Thanks!

Thanks, Cathy!
I'm wondering if it's just a few different herbs that are taken separately, not necessarily all blended together. Perhaps I misunderstood what was being written on the board. Well, if anyone knows of anything, please pass it on.

Thanks!

Hi,

I have been taking a fertility herb blend. It is a Chinese herb blend, I got it from my accupuncturist. It is actually capsules, he says you can purchase it as a tea also, but it tastes bad and he told me the capsules work just as well, and it is popular now also in China to take the capsules. But, it is true many RE's don't want you taking the herbs when you take the fertility meds; next cycle I will stop taking the herbs because of this. But, I figure it is worth a try now.

Hope this helps.

Thank you, Dorothy.

Now at least I know what to ask for. I had read that many herbs do not mix well with fertility meds--so i hope you do okay. Thanks for responding to my question!

Carol:

There is Fertility Blend for Women and Fertility Blend for Men vitamin and minerals that you can get on the internet. Go to the Google Search engine and search for Fertility Blend and it should come up. I believe these are vitamins with various herbs in them.

I am currently taking FertilAid, which is a vitamin with herbs that was created by an ob/gyn. My dr. told me it is o.k. to take while trying to conceive.

Good luck.
