I would like to get preggers, but I don't even have periods. So at 10:30 on April 29, 10 I started taking two 1/4teaspoons of ACV in 16 ounces of water. Is that enough? How long should it take before I have a period? I also wanted to start takin tussin after my next period. Any and all help welcome.

I just came across this claim that ACV works for fertility. Well, I wasn't taking it for that reason, but when I started taking it, I found out I was pregnant about a month later! I had been trying to get pregnant for 7 months prior to that. I love ACV!

I am a naturopath and highly recommend ACV treatments for just about anything! I prescriped it to a woman who came to me whos monthly cycle was irregualar, and was unable to concieve. I didnt hear back from her until 9 months later when she told me she had a baby!

Hi Reshall ; Vitamin B12 is necessary for fertility; for implantation of the fertilized egg, for carrying the fetus to term, and for producing a baby with a strong immune system as well as a neurological system. It is also necessary for male fertility, (sperm count, motility, and erectile function). Foods often associated with fertility ; such as liver, oysters, and clams, are very high in B12.
My aunt and uncle had one child, and for more than 20 years tried to have another one but were unable to. Then my aunt began supplementing with Barley Green, and four months later she became pregnant, to everyone's great surprise! She was over 40 years old, and the baby was perfectly healthy.

Hi there, I'm surprised chaste tree has not been mentioned as it is such a popular natural remedy for conceiving. Anyhow, here's my story.
A few years back, my husband and I were trying to become pregnant. We tried for four years and were on the brink of giving up as I was nearly 40 by then. We visited a fertility naturopath, who put me on chaste tree berry in liquid form, to drink once a day. It tastes beyond vile. Anyway, she said to drink it every day for two months and to NOT try to become pregnant in that time as it can cause a miscarriage. We foolishly didn't listen, tried in the second month, conceived and miscarried shortly after. We gave it another month, and when the naturopath said to try again, we did and fell pregnant immediately. It was a miracle! Our gorgeous son is now 8 years old. :)
I also recommended her to my SIL and best friend, and they both became pregnant. So our kids are all now the same age, as an added bonus. Good luck everyone, it is such a hard journey xo
After reading a lot of articles about dealing with gallstones in the USA, I found out that a little is mentioned, or not at all, about laser surgery that has been for long time in practice in european countries for removing gallstones. Ask your doctor about it... Also, a very good remedy for lowering or getting rid of a bad cholesterol is a homemade apple vinegar. It tastes like an apple cider, just it's very sour. If you have a chance to come across a book of bosnian homemade remedies, get it! Also, dates are very good fruit for the women who cannot get pregnant.
I used Guaifenesin twice to get pregnant after trying for five years. Take your temp every morning. Determine your ovulation schedule. Take Robetussin like the label suggests beginning a few days before ovulation begins and continuing for 4-5 days. It will increase cervical mucus thus increasing the chances the little sperm will swim well! Worked for me!
My husband and I had been trying to conceive for quite some time. I definitely didn't want to take any fertility drugs or go the invitro route. A co-worker had recommended Robitussin and said she had the same problems getting pregnant and she ended up with twins so I said what have we got to loose. No more than 3 weeks after trying a popular brand of cough syrup, (Robitussin), 1 TBS at night before bed. (Not to mention something else before bed that helped with the process!!) We went to the doctor's to discuss fertility drugs 2 months later as the next step, since we were both getting older. He came in the room and tore up the prescription he had written and said I couldn't take them because I was already pregnant (8 weeks)!! After trying for so long with not results, I knew what it was. It thinned out ALL the mucous membranes in my body. I believe the Guaifenesin increased our chance of getting pregnant along with prayer and agreement from my husband.

Guaifenesin treats congestion, cold, flu, bronchitis, sinus infections, and may increase chances of pregnancy (obviously not the case for males). Guaifenesin, available in many OTC cough syrups (tussin) is also available in tablets (mucinex) or available in generic form from many online pharmacies or health-food stores. The suggested dose is 400 - 1200 mg no more than twice daily. Guaifenesin is an expectorant -- so, take it with PLENTY of water. It thins the mucous membranes in the body -- NOT just the lungs or throat, but the ENTIRE (ENTIRE) body. you'll probably cough a bit more than usual for the first couple days -- that's GOOD -- you're getting rid of all the extra CRAP that shouldn't be there, in the first place. I have Asthma and Allergies (as well as a chronic sinus infection) I take loratadine, advair, singulair, benadryl, and albuterol. They work -- a little -- all together . . . but if I miss my guaifenesin -- I can definitely tell. It's rumored that it's also a useful remedy for CFS. Be careful, though -- guaifenesin can cause an increase in blood pressure -- so take it with PLENTY ( I cannot stress that enough ) PLENTY!!! of water!
Dear Ted and others,.
I'm 47 and trying to conceive. As I go through the Earthclinic site each time I decide to try the new remedy. Now I'm using Evening Primrose (1g 3 times per day), baking soda & lemon (not regularly, 1-2 times per week), vitamin E (once a week), Folic Acid (one per day). I just started to use these remedies this month.
Please let me know if its not good to use the remedies at the same time. This is 2nd month of trying to get conceived. Last month there were no pregnancy and I only was using ACV. This month, its 8 days left to my mens and I'm just waiting to see the result. I still have the hope to get pregnant at this age, since I'm a healthy woma. Thank you for your response in advance.
Secondary infertility remedy help requested... My first took just shy of a year to conceive. She is 18 months and still breastfeeding (but not very much). (BTW hoping for twins). I am going to try the Apple cider vinegar. I am already taking prenatal vitamins, and fish oil.
I heard it is a plus that I am breast feeding since it causes multiple eggs to drop. Twinning runs on my Mother's side of the family. (Mom was a twin, sister was pregnant with twins but one passed away.)
Anybody have input? Anyone else currently having this problem? OH and my menses are totally regular, come on the same day every month. Only exception is they are very heavy, probably due to Anemia, which I'm sure is affecting my fertility. Thanks everybody.
Two weeks after being on the lime/bakingsoda/ drink I got pregnant. I have always know I was too acidic. I have been for years, but did not know it was affecting my infertility. I had been infertile for 6 years. I am implementing more of a natural alkalinizing (greens) now.
My question. If my urine starts showing acidity again, I am concerned of loosing the baby. I will want to do the alkalinizing boost with the drink. Do you think the lime/bakingsoda/ mix is safe during pregnancy?

There was a study done on infertility in women. Nearly all of them had fibroids, endometriosis or cysts, including thick lining of the uterine wall. They all went on a higher dosage of vitamin B6, at least 100 mg/day (average size 125-150 lbs). Some were placed on much higher dosages. Only one did not get pregnant (she quit the program, and they didn't know what happened with her) within the year. In all of them, the fibroids, cysts, etc. began diminishing in size. The doctor that did the study felt that if he were to continue the study, that the cysts, etc. would completely go away. This has also worked for me. I used to have a cycle of 24 days, after a few months of B6, each month the period would become longer, until now it is at 28-30 days.
EC: While searching for the study Ronda was referring to, we came across an interesting site listing pubmed studies on B6 relating to pregnancy, miscarriage and infertility that folks might want to also check out: http://sites.google.com/site/miscarriageresearch/vitamins-and-miscarriage/vitamin-b6

One common cause of infertility is that the eggs do not stick to fallopian walls, in that case taking some vitamin C in form of sodium ascorbate will help this problem.
