Hi, everyone!

Has anyone used anything to help conception?
I have Metformin which is a diabetes drug that aids fertility. Robitussin is also said to help. Thanks!
And I'm also using dexamethasone.

metformin helps fertility only if you have insulin resistance/pcos. if you dont, that is extremely dangerous and not a fertility aid. and dexamethasone is a steroid that only helps if you have pcos/testosterone issues. neither of these are "fertility aids" in the way robitussin or pre-seed are, not by any means, they are treatments prescribed for disorders that cause infertility issues. and im not even gonna start on marijauna.

Every good and perfect gift is from above.

Fish Oil... I take Flaxseed Oil, as it is almost identical but has no chance of containing mercury.

I was on Clomid and Metformin to conceive #1

This time around im using chasteberry, flax and B6 and have noticed changes in my chart, but, will probably start conventional fertility meds next week.
