Dh and I have been together for almost 9 years. In that time I was on birth control for only the first 5 years. After that Dh and I weren't really careful about well <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="innocent"> um you know, lol <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Well we weren't really trying but we weren't avoiding it either. Until now a baby wasn't conceived and DH and I had started to wonder if one of us was infertile.<br><br>
But then about a year ago Dh and I got into this health kick on supplements (I started working at Vitamin World) and added L-Arginine into our regiment for cardiovascular health. About 5 months later I found out I was pregnant.<br><br>
Later on I read that L-Arginine increases fertility in both Men and Women. Specifically helping to increase the male sperm count.<br><br>
After finding this out when I had customers come in and asked what kind of supplements they could take to increase fertility I suggested the L-Arginine and explained to them (as I would rub my swollen preggy belly) why I believed it worked.<br><br>
I actually saw one of those customers about three months later pregnant and glowing.<br><br>
Any how I just wanted to share these findings with the rest of you. I hope it helps<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

That is great! dh is taking fertilaid and it has l-arginine in it, so I hope we get positive results, too. How much did dh take? And what are the benefits for women? (Sorry for all the questions <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/innocent.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shy"> )

I took 500mg for heart health (aids circulation) but Dh was taking it by accident. It was in one of his sports performance supplement drinks. I believe that there was about 2,500-3,000 mg in it. Men Usually take 1,500-3,000 mg as a natural form of Viagra. But I would check with your doc for a proper dosage.<br><br>
Check out this link for more information on L-Arginine.<br><a href="http://www.vitaminworld.com/vf/healthnotes/HN_live/index.htm?Hcontent=All_Index" target="_blank">http://www.vitaminworld.com/vf/healt...tent=All_Index</a>

I have only gotten pregnant while DH is on L-Arginine in a tri-amino formula. After almost 3 years of infertility, this has definitely worked.
