I created this page to compile fertility resources that I’ve found to be the most helpful.

It can be so overwhelming when you start looking for fertility tips or trying to improve your fertility and so much info gets thrown your way that you might not know what to do. Some days I still feel this way.

I will be updating this page pretty regularly, adding to it as I find helpful resources, so you may want to bookmark it and check back for updates.

Fertility Affirmations

I have several posts available on this site with fertility affirmations for:

I’ve also created an affirmation coloring book that’s now available on Amazon. As you color the floral and mandala patterns you can focus on each page’s affirmation and your desired outcome. Even just a few minutes a day can help you relax and practice your visualization in a meditative state.

IVF Tracker Journals

I’ve created these IVF tracker journals to help you stay organized during your cycle. You can use them for a fresh cycle and transfer, frozen embryo transfer (FET), or even an IUI.

I’ll be adding new designs regularly so that you can find one that fits your style.

You’ll find charts to log your fertility labs and test results, medical history, procedures and results, medications and vitamins, relevant contact information, and medication estimates.

And note pages for your consultation with your doctor and insurance coverage.

Daily Pages include space for tracking medications, lab results, water intake, symptoms, an affirmation, and notes (like questions you want to ask, remaining medication amounts, gratitude lists, etc.)

You’ll even find dot grid pages throughout this IVF Journal to give you space for additional notes, questions for your doctors or nurses, journaling, doodling, or writing out more positive affirmations- it’s up to you & what you need each day.

Natural Conception Resources:

Ovulation Test Kit

This test kit has plenty of ovulation tests, a reusable cup, and a cycle tracker to keep your test strips aligned so that you can compare them to each other.

Pre-seed Fertility Lubricant

Did you know that some lubes can be harmful to sperm? Yep. If you’re on this page it’s safe to assume that’s not what you want!

Make sure you’re using fertility-friendly lubrication when it’s “go-time.”

Prenatal Vitamins for Women

These prenatal vitamins are typically made with methylfolate, instead of folic acid as the B9 supplement. Methylfolate is thought to be more effective since a gene mutation of MTHF can cause difficulty in converting folic acid to active L-methylfolate.

SmartyPants Organic Prenatal Vitamins are another option that are made with L-methylfolate instead of folic acid. And these ones are gummies, if you prefer that over capsules.

It has a inositol, which is sometimes recommended for those with PCOS and doesn’t have iron, which can sometimes cause constipation when taken with IVF medications.

My IVF doctor instructed me to also take CoQ10, so this may be one you also want to ask your doctor about. I’ve taken this one by Garden of Life and this one by Nordic Naturals, which also has fish oil.

I’ve noticed CoQ10 tends to be a pricier vitamin, so I’ll grab a couple when I find them on sale to stock up.

Fertilaid Vitamins for Men

These vitamins are supposed to be good for sperm health, so if your guy has poor morphology or mobility have him ask his doctor about these.

Fertility Books:

The Fertile Secret: 10 Steps to Living Your Most Fertile Life by Dr. Robert Kiltz

This book is full of valuable information. Dr. Kiltz has included info for a variety of specific conditions like endometriosis, PCOS, and fibroids, as well as general fertility tips.

Am I the Reason I’m Not Getting Pregnant? by Rosanne Austin

This book is a fairly quick read that’s focused primarily on strategies for keeping your mindset aligned with your desired outcome- pregnancy.

Trying to get Pregnant (and Succeeding) by Marisa Peer

Reading this book is like having a session with Marisa Peer right in your hands. The way she’s written it includes hypnotic language that can help you believe pregnancy is possible for you, even when that seems far from true.

Men’s Fertility Resources:

Our doctor suggested that my hubby take Coenzyme Q10- 200mg daily and a daily multivitamin with vitamins A, C, E, Selenium, and Zinc. Hubby then checked with his regular doctor to make sure these vitamins wouldn’t interact poorly with his other medications.

I’ll share the vitamins he’s taken, but definitely check with your doctor regarding your specific needs.
