Aid Your Pregnancy Journey With FertilAid

A few months ago I was given the opportunity to review a few different fertility products. The picture above is the package I received from Fairhaven Health. This review is long overdue. In my defense, this is a very difficult topic for me to discuss. I have a tendency to push things like this to the background. My apologies to all my readers as well as to Fairhaven Health for the delay.

Unfortunately, I still haven't been able to get pregnant so I can't say that taking any of the products above will help you. Fertility is a very, very complicated thing. It's very possible that I could have a different problem that these products can in no way help me. 

Now that all that stuff is out of the way, on with the review :) The kit that Fairhaven Health sent to me contained a one month supply of FertilAid for Women, FertilDetox and FertilCM.  Plus it also include a SpermCheck test kit. 

I took all the pills above as prescribed and I have to say I really felt great afterwards. I already take a multivitamin, but 1800 mgs of calcium each day, so to add something that actually made me feel even better was a surprise. I found that after about a week or so I had more energy than I did before. At the time I was also having other lingering issues from a previous medication and I believe that the FertilCM was able to help my body get back to normal.  These supplements range from $19.95 to $34.95 for a months supply. 

Perhaps the most truly helpful item for us was the SpermCheck test. This test costs $39.95 and can be taken at home. The instructions are a bit involved so you'll want to make sure you read them over a few times before you take it. It cost us over $80 to have this test performed by our doctor. While this doesn't guarantee that you doctor won't want a test from the lab anyways, for people just starting out this can help. If you have any reason to believe that the problems you're having could be due to a low sperm count then I would recommend taking this test. I do want to add that on both tests my husband had excellent counts. The lab results were more precise, but I believe that's to be expected. 

Here's a tip: Insurance doesn't always cover fertility treatments. However, if you take this test and it shows that your significant other has a low count then have him go to the doctor. Most insurance companies will cover his treatment by urologist.
