Cakoo4cocopuffs - February 15

Has anyone ever heard of the vitamin St. Johns Wort to help with trying to conceive?? I was talking to my mom earlier and she said that an ex g/f of my uncle was trying to get pregnant a few years back. trying for 12 years I guess! Well she took St. Johns wort to help and she got pregnant 3 months later! Has anyone else heard of this at all?? I know it is supposed to help with mood disorders and stuff but with conceiving? Do you think that it was just a coincedence or if the vitamin actually helped her?? Thanks!!

This just doesn't make sense to me ya know. I just don't see how it would have done anything.

eesssh never mind, I just read something saying it might even decrease fertility if it does anything! I also read a bunch of bad things about when dealing with pregnancy and the vitamin! I am going to pa__s and tell my mom tomorrow about it!

Well, when I took it, it made my period sooo irregular, that one month I had one for 9 days (mine is usually 4 or 5) So I know one thing that helps when ttc is regular cycle. So I dont think so.

Never heard of that, but I took vitex with great success! It's supposed to take 3-6 months to work, but it worked for me the first month I took it. We had been trying for almost a year and I'm sure it was the vitex that made the difference. I bought mine from vitacost.com, NSI brand, took 2 every morning only. I stopped taking it as soon as I found out I was pregnant.

Hi, I have heard the exact opposite, I have heard that you should avoid St Johns Wart if you are try to get pregant, that it can cause problems, so be wary.
