Fertility Vitamins: 8 Vitamins to Get Pregnant

When it's time to conceive, it is the time to look toward the vitamin needs of your body. Look to see which 8 vitamins should be added to your diet, either from natural sources or fertility vitamin supplementation, to help you get pregnant fast.

Women and men looking forward to conceive need to take into account vitamin supplements. Not only are they a prerequisite to a healthy female reproductive system, they are also very useful in enhancing fertility too. Knowing precisely which vitamins positively affect male and female fertility is crucial with regard to achieving the goal of conceiving and carrying the pregnancy to term.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is the vitamin of choice for the overall male and female reproductive system. For women, the fertility-friendly vitamin E improves the quality of cervical mucus, thus enhancing the chances of implantation of the fertilized eggs. And moreover, it prolongs the sperm’s life within the female a couple more days, so as to increase the chances for the egg to be fertilized. For men, a daily intake of vitamin E is recommended in order to enhance sperm motility. Natural sources of vitamin E are green vegetables, such as spinach and broccoli, wheat germ oil, nuts and almonds, olive and sunflower oil.

Vitamin C

This excellent antioxidant also aids in both male and female fertility, given the key part it plays in conception. For men, it counteracts the damaging effects of free radicals on the quality of the sperm and increasing their motility. For women, vitamin C sustains an appropriate female endocrine equilibrium and increases fertility in particular in the case of women having low progesterone levels. It also reinforces the right balance between estrogen and progesterone levels. Clinical trials on women have proven that the chances of getting pregnant doubled following the vitamin C treatment. Vitamin C can be found in natural food sources like oranges, lemons, limes, broccoli, cranberries, and tomatoes.

Folic Acid

Folic acid is an essential vitamin both during pre-conception and pregnancy, as it can prevent spina-bifida in your baby, and other birth defects associated with the brain and spine development in the baby. In addition, this vitamin promotes sustainable fertility in women and prepares their bodies for pregnancy. Supplementation with this vitamin is very beneficial, since only 50% of the folic acid found in the ingested food can be properly absorbed by the human body. Natural sources include spinach, broccoli, beet, and asparagus. Supplementation doses are 400 mcg per day.

Vitamin B6

Vitamin B6 offers additional support in terms of increased fertility because it balances out the hormone levels. Vitamin B6 focuses mainly on correcting low progesterone levels of women affected by luteal phase defect, in which their luteal phases are not long enough to sustain a successful pregnancy. A normal progesterone level is essential to keep up the pregnancy otherwise it could lead to a miscarriage. Vitamin B6 can be found naturally in most vegetables, whole cereals and bananas. Supplementation doses suggest 50mg a day.

Vitamin B12

A key vitamin for improved fertility, Vitamin B12 enhances the occurrence of ovulation, being particularly helpful to women not ovulating at all, making it harder to try to conceive. Vitamin B12 also improves the inner lining of the uterus, thus creating a favorable environment for the implantation of the fertilized eggs. A B-complex vitamin can be added to your daily intake, to bring sufficient amounts of both Vitamins B6 and B12.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is essential to both male and female fertility. It stimulates the levels of estrogen and progesterone, regulates menstruation and improves the viability of sperm, therefore enhancing a successful outcome. In addition, Vitamin D is an essential vitamin during pregnancy with studies showing its use vastly decreasing the risk of preterm labor as well as the risk of other pregnancy complications.

Omega-3 & Omega-6 fatty acids

Fatty acids like Omega-3 and Omega-6 are very helpful in female fertility and during pregnancy. Having a sufficient level of fatty acids in your system is may prevent miscarriage and premature delivery. Natural sources of these fatty acids most commonly include flaxseeds, fish oil, olive oil, sunflower oil, seeds and nuts, and avocado.

Fertility boosting minerals

Other supplements extremely helpful to women and men keen on becoming parents include a handful of fertility-boosting minerals like zinc, selenium and iron which ensure the normal balance of estrogen and progesterone levels. The proper vitamin supplementation is important for any couple trying to overcome difficulties related to their fertility and is as easy as adjusting your diet and looking into adding a vitamin supplement to your daily regime.

    FertiBella is specifically designed to stimulate ovulation by regulating hormones and normalizing your cycle, especially helpful after just terminating chemical contraception like the Depo Provera shot.

    Having regular menstrual cycles doesn’t
    mean you’re in the clear. Different women have different issues when trying to
    conceive: obesity, endometriosis, prescription medications, smoking, health
    problems and other gynecologic disorders. If you haven’t had a gynecological
    examination lately, I recommend you see your gynecologist. If your husband
    hasn’t had his sperm tested in the past three months, get it tested now.

    Hi i am 22 and have been off the pill for 11months and have regular sex with my bf.. i have regular 28 day cycles..
    my partner has a child already so i worry it could be me.
    I have never been pregnant before and i have previously in the past tried to fall pregnant for 6 months. i have in the past been on the depo shot, implanon and the pill.
    The only change i have noticed is last month i noticed for the first time fertile mucus, it was stretchy and egg white consistency. My periods have always been regular even after discontiuning BC but on the shot i didnt get any periods but i stopped that almost 3 and half years ago. Can somtimes it take sometime for your fertile mucus to show up even after regular cycles? also my periods arent as long as they used to be, they used to be 5 days now they are 3 or 4 at the most.
    Should i worry? im not in a rush but id like to pick up sooner if i was going to have a problem conceieving.

    Fertibella is a safe and all-natural complete reproductive support system; it does not disrupt your menstrual cycles. Since you have been missing your period, there is a big chance for you to be pregnant. I do recommend you to take another pregnancy test 14-22 days after your sexual intercourse for consistent results.

    My fiancee and I have been together for bout six years now and I had twin miscarriages in my first trimester 2009 since then I have been unable to get pregnant. I was just wondering… well the truth is I grew up in foster care and out aged the system, was never adopted. I was determined and emancipated myself before I even graduated highschool in 2006.And began my life as a responsible adult. I was physically sexually mentally intentionally abused by my stepfather since I was seven years old. I am afraid that this may have something to do with no being able to conceive. Also growing up in custody of dhs I was moved from many different foster homes and group homes, ripped from my siblings. In one specific group home all girls who had already started their cycle had to be on birth control to live there. I was given seasonal a bc that u have a cycle 4 x a year well my bc was not administered to me correctly when it my time fir me to take the white pills for the week of cycle they would skip them and continue the next pink pill there were so many of us girls in one house they more than likely didn’t wanna deal with our cycles anyways has this caused me my fertility problems what can I do yo fix this without seeing a doctor have no insurance and i am very low income for the moment. My fiance a descent job but it not enough to cover high dic visits or even obgyn visit last one i had was 2009. My fiance supports us both for the time being until my job reopen for business

  • Dr. Christine Lee, MD

    Though Vitamin C is considered safe to take when pregnant, taking great amounts of Vitamin C can somehow induce miscarriages and I suggest that you only take minimal amounts. Taking 200 mg of Vitamin C supplements is safe for you and; yes, vitamin C can reduce your progesterone levels in such a way that it suppresses the production of these hormones.

    A lot of women have problems conceiving after getting off birth control. That is because it takes some time for the body to adjust. The time it takes for it to happen depends on your body. Taking prenatal vitamins will help as well as exercise, eating right and avoiding alcohol and tobacco.

    I have been diagnosed with amenorrhea since age 16. I have had a cycle about 10 times in my entire life and I’m 31 years old. I was told by a doctor at age 21 that it would be extremely complicated for me to conceive. At age 28 I got married and tried to conceive with HGC shots, clomid and etc. Nothing! An entire year and nothing so my husband and I decided to stop. Now it’s 2 years later and still no baby :( . I’ve had every test done and yes I have a hormonal imbalance but my ovaries, uterus, etc are fine no problems there. To be concise, will this by any chance help us. Please give honest feedback…

    First of all I want to say, I am very sorry for your loss. Since you already have a history of miscarriage I would suggest that you work closely with a specialist while trying to get pregnant and all throughout your pregnancy to ensure a healthy and safe pregnancy. It is recommended that you take prenatal vitamins like folic acid, vitamin B6 and B12 as this combination of vitamins help prevent miscarriage.

    It is good for your man to start taking multivitamins or zinc supplements as it helps with sperm count and also vitamin C. He should also start eating right, avoid alcohol, tobacco and hot tubs.

    The best prenatal vitamins that you can take is folic acid and vitamin B6 and B12. Folic acid helps prevent birth defects as women who are trying to conceive in their late 30′s are at risk for it. Folic acid combined with vitamins B6 and B12 is known to prevent miscarriages.

    My husband & i have been trying to conceive from 6 months, I am 25 & my husband is 30 yrs old. I have PCOS, my periods come every month, my cycle length is 31-37 days. Sometimes, once or twice in a year my cycle length becomes 60-65 days. Last month i used the ovulation kit, and we had sex on ovulation days, 3 times, but we are fail to conceive. I am not taking any pills, but following the diet that is necessary for conceiving. Does this kit could help us to conceive?

    What I did was this ..start taking the conceive easy….monitor your ovulation cycle and your cervical mucus….also use the ovulation kits I used the clear blue digital and during ovulation I tested once in the afternoon and again in the evening. When you are ready you can use preseed if your cervical mucus isn’t good. After you do the deed I elevated myself and put a pillow under my butt and inserted a softcup that I usually use for my period. I stayed in that position for like15 minutes. After ttc for 2 years I’m 3 months pregnant . also if you do this start drinkingfolic acid.
