OTC Fertility Drugs for Women

Trying to get pregnant? Check out the top 7 OTC (over the counter) fertility drugs for women.

OTC stands for “over the counter,” and in regards to medicine, OTC means a drug or medication that is sold directly to the consumer without a doctor’s prescription. Although, sometimes, these drugs can be found on the same shelf with other packaged goods. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

A wide range of medicine is available to consumers over the counter, but the OTC fertility drugs for women are not always readily available in your local drug store like CVS or Rite Aid. However, almost all of them can be purchased online. Below, you can find a list of the seven most common fertility medications for women that have difficulties conceiving.

Clomid

Actually named Clomiphene, Clomid is the brand name version of the same. It is also marketed as Serophene or Milophene, and acts to stimulate the ovaries to produce multiple eggs. For those with no ovulation or scant ovulation, this can be extremely successful. While a prescribed medication, there are various sources online in which you can purchase this product over-the-counter. However, as with the case of all prescribed medications, it is best to go through your doctor to ensure a product most effective and safe.

Fertomid

Fertomid is another prescription product, that is based on Clomiphene and available as pills and tablets. It is used to treat infertility in women who are not ovulating mainly due to hormonal imbalances. Like Clomiphene, while a prescription product, it can be found online for purchase over-the-counter. Again, buy at your own caution as these are meant to be prescribed by a doctor, so he can best monitor you and provide you with the safest medication available.

Vitex

Vitex is usually recommended as the first drug to be tried, as an herbal supplement made from the extract of the chasteberry plant, it is a far cheaper alternative than other similar drugs, since it uses only natural ingredients. Vitex balances hormones necessary for a smooth-operating reproductive system, and can be found in your local health food store.

FertiBella ConceiveEasy

The women’s formula has multiple ingredients, including Vitex and L-arginine – which helps keep the uterine lining healthy, folic acid (folate – which aids in fertility health), and many other vitamins and minerals. As a fertility blend, it combines a mix of vitamins, minerals and herbs, to best support a woman’s reproductive system during the time of conception. Cheaper than prescribed medications, FertiBella ConceiveEasy costs about $40 per month. However, with every bottle purchase, you receive free pregnancy or ovulation tests, which is a great cost-savings for those of you trying to conceive.

Ovulex

Ovulex also includes Vitex, gingko biloba and many other natural ingredients. As another fertility blend, it works by stimulating the reproductive hormones such as estrogens and progesterone, but it is much more expensive than the other supplements at about $70 per month.

Femara

Although used mostly to treat breast cancer after surgery and known as Letrozole, it is an oral treatment free of steroids, which, by stimulating the ovaries to mature the egg faster, it also produces the necessary hormones for an easier and faster pregnancy. Again, like Clomiphene and Fertomid, it is a prescribed medication but generic versions of it can be found online without a prescription.

Chinese Fertility Herbs

Chinese fertility herbs are said to be very effective as a treatment for more than one fertility problem, as they fight issues such as the lack of or irregular ovulation, egg quality, irregular cycles, etc. Common Chinese herbs include Shu di huang, Fu pen Zi, Man jing Zi, Shan yao, Dang gui, and Yi mu cao.

Despite their wide availability, it is important to remember that, although the risks associated with them are significantly lower than those characteristic to the various prescription drugs, some over the counter fertility drugs can occasionally have unpleasant side effects, the most common being mild headaches, irregular menstruation cycles, breakouts and abnormal spotting.

    I am soon to be 21 and my husband is soon to be 22, I have a child, but my husband and I can’t seem to concieve. We have been trying for almost two years. I’ve seen a doctor who did blood work, and an ultrasound, they said nothing looks wrong. My husband still won’t get a sperm analysis. What could be wrong, could they be missing something with me still? I’m frustrated and am unsure what to do.

     It is a good thing you had yourself checked before TTC. However, it is also important for your husband to have a sperm analysis so both of you can know the status of his sperm health.

    Since your menstrual cycles are regular, there is a big chance for you to conceive soon. Try to take fertility medications, avoid stress, eat right and increase your sexual intercourse to increase your chances of conceiving soon.

    When it comes to drugs that induce ovulation, I do recommend you to try Gonadtropins to increase your chances of getting pregnant. Gonadtropins are follicle stimulating hormones that can help stimulate your ovulation, and improve your chances of getting pregnant. In addition, gonadtropins can also increase your likelihood of conceiving twins or multiples.

    It is important that you accurately detect your ovulation date and have sex every other day during your fertile window, which occurs 4 to 5 days before your ovulation. Having sex during your fertile window can increase your chances of conception in such a way that the sperm can most likely fertilize the egg during this period.

    There are a lot of fertility pills on the market that can help you increase your chances of conceiving. You may try Clomid (clomifene) which works by stimulating your ovaries and to incuce ovulation. You may also try FertiBella which is an all-natural, 100% drug-free fertility supplement clinically proven effective in overcoming the most common obstacles to conception, and has been designed to dramatically increase your chances of conception better than traditional fertility treatments. However, it is recommended that you make an appointment with your doctor to discuss any medications that you may be taking.

    My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for over seven years with no luck. We already know I have been diagnosed with ovarian cysts but it’s not severe enough to cause infertility. Any advice on how to get pregnant soon?

    Well, first of all, it is best that you visit your doctor and have a reproductive exam done to rule out any fertility issues you may have. Secondly, you may consider taking FertiBella to help you conceive faster. It is clinically proven effective in overcoming the most common obstacles to conception, and has been designed to dramatically increase your chances of conception better than traditional fertility treatments. Lastly, you may try having intercourse every other day to ensure your fertile days are covered.

    Hi all,
    My question is regarding my fertility and cycle. I have always had an irregular cycle since I started back in 2001,I now am 27 and have had 2 pregnancies. 1 live and 1 mc. A little background on me, before my 1st pregnancy my periods were irregular then 6mo prior to getting pregnant they came regular Nov-April Same time each month. After I gave birth 2007 I got right on birth control pills and continued 3 years, I wanted something I didn’t have to worry about so I went off the pills and I got an IUD (PARAGAURD), I had this for 11 months and was advised to take it out as my cycle would not regulate (off and on 2-3 weeks a month). My last cycle was roughly in Oct 2012. I ended up pregnant Oct 2013 & miscarried @ 7wks. It was all natural and at home, I did see my OB and they gave me BC pills but I really don’t want to go through the pills again. She just wants me to have a cycle, I have always had normal check ups and my ovaries look great, no cysts Or abnormalities. Is there anything you may suggest that might help regulate if I ever want to TTC again? All my

    Hi, I am 38 years old and I have 1 daughter already. I didn’t need any help to conceive her but for some reason I can’t conceive again. The doctor did test to check if my tubes are open and they are, I had a vaginal ultrasound the doctor found no problem either. Its just that i don’t ovulate. Is there anything that I can take that can make me ovulate that is really going to help me to ovulate. Also I have PCOS WITH IRREGULAR CYCLES. ANY HELP IS APPRECIATED. THANK U.

    I am 22 almost 23 and I am having problems conceiving. My fiancé has twin daughters but we can’t seem to have 1 of our own. I went to the doctor to get checked out but she couldn’t find anything wrong besides PCOS. She told me I can still become pregnant but I am finding it hard to believe being that my menstrual cycle is irregular. What could I possibly do or take so I can conceive??

    My husband and I have only been trying to conceive for 4 months. A year ago we had our first pregnancy but lost the baby six weeks in. I assumed getting pregnant again after all this time would be quick. Could there be issues with me since I did miscarry or should we just give it more time.

    I am 31 and my husband is 36. We have been married for almost 9 years. We have yet to concieve. I’ve been to the doctor and had tests done. Everything is fine. My husband has had a sperm analysis and everything is good. We are unsure what to do from here. Could any of these fertility medicines help us conceive?
