Alternative to St. John's Wort while TTC?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have been taking St. John's Wort for a while for depression/anxiety--it works really, really well for me. However I have been doing research online and it appears it can adversely affect fertility and may not be safe during pregnancy. Are there other natural remedies for depression that anyone can recommend that would be safe for TTC/Pregnancy?
TIA!

what about 5-HTP? I don't know if it's recommended during TTC/pregnancy, though...

Hmm... I'll look into 5-htp...

Has anyone ever heard of NAC (N-Acetylcysteine)? Further research last night revealed it is shown to help immunity, PCOS, depression and addictive behaviors... I would think that it wouldn't be detrimental to fertility if it helps with PCOS...

Well I picked up the NAC today--I'll keep you guys posted. Anyone else tried it before?
