Hello everyone, I'm not new here, but rarely ever post. I have 5 children, my youngest just turned 3. Started ttc in March, got preg in June, and had a MC in august. I just turned 41 in May, and Just started taking Ovaboost a few weeks ago I plan on adding in fertile cm tomorrow. Just wondering if anyone has had any experience using these fertility supplements over 40, and had a successful pregnancy. My periods are normal, I've had 2 since my mc. I'm nursing, but she only nurses a few times a day. I'd also like to know if anyone has any input on the ingredients in these things, and nursing. Everythting I've read says no studies have been done, but these things all seem very safe, imo, as they are what the body produces anyhow. TIA for any input ladies!

Ovaboost ingredients-


  • Myo-inositol, folic acid and melatonin: When taken together, these three ingredients prove to be a powerful force for improving egg quality. Folic acid is recommended for all women who are trying-to-conceive to help reduce the risk of neural tube defects in babies. But, research appears to indicate that there is something extra special about the combination of folic acid and the two powerful antioxidants, myo-inositol and melatonin, for promoting egg quality. Myo-inositol is also helpful for women with PCOS, as it increases insulin sensitivity. 
  • Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10): This powerful antioxidant nutrient also participates in the cellular processes that produce energy. Once conception occurs, the amount of cell division that occurs to allow the egg to grown into an embryo and successfully implant into the wall of the uterus requires a tremendous amount of energy. CoQ10 works within the mitochondria (the energy powerhouse of the cell) of the egg cell to help ensure that energy production is optimal. 
  • Alpha-lipoic acid, Vitamin E, and grapeseed extract: Each of these ingredients has powerful antioxidant activity to help safeguard your egg cells from free radical damage.



Fertile cm-


Vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) is a key antioxidant and vitamin central to healthy cell function. In the FertileCM formula, vitamin C has been included to promote an increase in the hydration (or liquidity) of cervical mucus. As an antioxidant, L-ascorbic acid has been shown to modulate the mucin structure by reducing the copper bound to sialic acid. This will result in an increase in hydration (liquidity) of the mucin by the association of water molecules with the uncomplexed sialic acid molecules of the glycoproteins. The end result of a complex biological interaction is shown to be an increase in mucin hydration.

Coral Calcium is included in the FertileCM formula to support proper mucus pH (or increased alkalinity) and to help reduce sperm-harming acidity in the vagina during the ovulatory phase.

Lactobacilli are organisms necessary for a healthy vaginal environment. The absence of vaginal Lactobacilli may lead to an environment that is hostile to sperm and may further be associated with infertility issues and infections. FertileCM contains Lactobacilli to help support female reproductive wellness and support a healthy environment in the vagina.

Grapeseed Extract is a strong antioxidant and helps inhibit the oxidation of ascorbic acid and thereby potentiates the action of vitamin C. Antioxidants play a key role in repairing damage caused by the environment and aging - and in preventing cellular damage due to oxidizing free radicals. The increased presence of antioxidants in cervical fluids may provide additional protection and support for sperm.

N-acetylcysteine (NAC) is a precursor of glutathione, an important antioxidant that is naturally produced within the body. NAC has safely been in use for more than 30 years as a mucolytic - an agent which dissolves thick mucus and thins overall mucus secretions. In studies, NAC has been shown to help thin mucus and detoxify harmful substances in the body.
