When it comes to trying to conceive, if you were going to break it down to the single most important aspect, I would have to say that it is ovulation. Ovulation is the time frame during a given month where a woman’s egg is released and travels down the fallopian tube to wait to be fertilized. Claim Your 20 Free Ovulation Tests – Click Here

     What most people do not know is that the period of ovulation is very short, around 24 hours in length.

This means, the egg only lives for about 24 hours after it is released before it starts to disintegrate. As you can imagine, this leaves little to no room for error when it comes to trying to conceive, and it is of the utmost importance that couples know when a woman is ovulating for the best chance of getting pregnant. Couples can literally try for an entire month to get pregnant, and if by some chance they don’t have sex during that fertile period, there is no chance at all of getting pregnant.

Ovulation Problems are Common

When you imagine how often couples get the timing wrong when it comes to the fertile window and trying to conceive, it’s easy to see where there can be problems getting pregnant.

     Most women don’t even know there is a fertile window!

However, when you couple those timing issues with the fact that many women have ovulation problems, it’s amazing that anyone ever gets pregnant at all! In fact, ovulation problems are one of the most common causes of fertility troubles. Some ovulation problems are caused when the eggs do not mature properly, while other ovulation problems are caused when the ovaries do not release the eggs like they are supposed to.

How Do You Know If You Have An Ovulation Problem?

Knowing if you have an ovulation problem can actually be tricky. Many women never know that they do not ovulate properly until they have problems trying to conceive, and in turn, see a fertility doctor. There are, however, some telltale signs that might indicate an ovulation issue that women can be on the lookout for.

The first sign of an ovulation problem is often irregular menstrual periods. Women who never have a period, or who have periods very irregularly might be at risk of an ovulation problem. The same goes for women who have extremely heavy or extremely light periods. Another telltale sign of an ovulation problem is when a woman starts trying to conceive, and begins to use ovulation predictor tests to determine when she is ovulating. If a woman is using these tests and never gets a positive result, or gets a positive result inconsistently, it can indicate a problem with ovulation. However, only a doctor can tell a woman for 100% sure whether she is properly ovulating or not.

Over The Counter Options?

Many women who are suffering from ovulation issues might not want to jump straight into prescription drugs to treat their ovulation. They might be worried about the accessibility, the cost, the side effects, or the chemicals in these drugs. Women who are concerned about prescription ovulation medications might be especially interested in herbal supplements or fertility blends.

herbal supplements or fertility blends to help with fertility

These herbal fertility blends usually are safer to use than prescription drugs because they are made from all natural ingredients that have been used for hundreds of years to help with fertility issues. Some women also like to choose these fertility blends because instead of researching and learning about several different herbal fertility remedies, they can simply take one capsule where all of the herbal supplements are already measured out and blended together with no stress involved!

Over the counter fertility blends are really popular right now because they do not require a doctor’s prescription, which means that women do not have to visit their doctors for costly, lengthy appointments and testing just to get their hands on a fertility supplement. In fact, herbal fertility blends can even be ordered online and delivered straight to your home, which cuts out all the stress of visiting a doctor’s office.


One of the most popular fertility supplements that is available over the counter is one that is called ConceiveEasy. ConceiveEasy is an all natural herbal supplement that helps support a woman’s reproductive system. It contains several of the most popular and effective fertility herbs that are out there.

The ConceiveEasy fertility supplement is helpful in so many different ways for a woman’s reproductive system. It can increase blood flow to the reproductive organs, it can help balance hormones and regulate periods. It can help with symptoms of PCOS and endometriosis, and can even increase the quality of a woman’s cervical mucus, helping the sperm to reach the egg for fertilization.

Prenatal Vitamins

For women who do not think that the ConceiveEasy TTC kit is right for them do have other options available. Some women choose to start their TTC journey with simple, over the counter, prenatal vitamins. For women who don’t always eat right, prenatal vitamins can help to bridge those nutritional gaps can can help women to make sure that they are getting the right amount of all the important vitamins and nutrients.

Prenatal vitamins are great at setting a good foundation for pregnancy and helping women to get in the right frame of mind for having a baby. Prenatal vitamins can also even help to prevent birth defects because nutrients like folic acid can help to prevent neural tube defects and other birth problems. Taking a prenatal vitamin before getting pregnant can help to ward off these sorts of issues. Another good thing about prenatal vitamins? They are readily available without a doctor’s prescription and can be purchased inexpensively at local drug stores, grocery stores and even online.

Lifestyle Changes

Women who are leaning towards using over the counter fertility pills to help them ovulate should also take into consideration their lifestyle choices. It’s super important for women to eat a healthy diet when they are trying to conceive, for example. Junk foods, sugary snacks and candy and fast food are all really bad options for women who are trying to conceive because they are laden with empty calories that are bad for the body in general. When thinking of a healthy diet, women should lean more towards organic fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lean meats, and full fat dairy products to ensure they are giving their bodies the best start and foundation for getting pregnant.

Exercise is also extremely important for women who are trying to conceive. Not only is exercise just overall “good” for the body, it can actually help with fertility as well. Exercise helps blood flow in the body, which can actually circulate blood in the reproductive organs as well. For women who are overweight, exercise can be exceptionally important to fertility as well.

     Some doctors even believe that women who are not ovulating properly can ‘reset’ their hormones and give their body a fresh start by losing as little as five to ten pounds.

This is why exercise is so important when it comes to trying to conceive. In addition to exercise and diet, women who are trying to conceive should be sure to stop any bad habits like smoking, drug use and alcohol use while trying to conceive, and should also try to keep stress to a minimum.

Next Steps

For women who are trying to use over the counter fertility medications to help them ovulate, they might wonder what happens if those methods do not work. Women might wonder what the next steps are after trying over the counter fertility medications. The truth of the matter is, if you try prenatal vitamins and over the counter fertility supplements like ConceiveEasy, and you find that they are not working for your particular situation, it might be time to seek a doctor’s advise.

In fact, experts say that women under age 35 should seek a doctor’s advice and help if they have been trying to conceive for over a year with no success. For women over age 35, a doctor’s advice is recommended after six months of trying with no success. There are so many different options available for women. Don’t be discouraged, and please know that if you try to use over the counter fertility pills to help you ovulate, and they don’t work, you do have other options out there, although you might have to see a doctor to get the ball rolling on those options.

Clomid As An Option

For women who do not find success with over the counter fertility medications like fertility blends or prenatal vitamins, a doctor’s visit is usually in order.

     Please, please, do not see a doctor’s visit as a failure when it comes to these things.

There is so much that a doctor can do to help when it comes to fertility issues. Not only does a doctor’s visit give you a chance to speak with your doctor regarding your fertility plans and goals, it also will give the doctor a chance to go over your family history, personal medical history, your partner’s medical history and more. All of these things will make it much easier for a doctor to help you to set up a game plan when it comes to fertility. Most likely, if your doctor sees that you are having a hard time with ovulation, he or she will probably prescribe you Clomid.

50 mg Clomid to help with fertility

     Clomid is one of the most popular, if not THE most popular fertility drug on the market today.

It’s been around for a really long time, like, over 40 years, and it has amazing success rates. In fact, more than 80 percent of women who take Clomid for ovulation problems will end up ovulating after taking the drug for 3 cycles (months).

Clomid is an oral medication, and it’s usually very well received, with minimal side effects for women. Clomid works by stimulating the ovaries to produce mature eggs, and might be just the “kickstart” needed for women who are having trouble ovulating.

Women usually start Clomid around the beginning of their cycle, and only take it for about five days. That’s it! Easy, simple, and usually a very powerful option for women who are not ovulating. Another good thing about Clomid is that it is sometimes covered by health insurance, and if it isn’t, it’s not too expensive for women to usually pay for on their own. That’s a great thing to keep in mind, since women usually associate fertility medications like Clomid with being super expensive, but this is not always the case.

In Conclusion

In conclusion, I’m sure you can see that there are tons of different options out there for women who are having trouble with ovulation. Ovulation problems are not uncommon, in fact, they are one of the main causes of fertility issues out there today. The good news about that is that fertility issues that are caused by ovulation problems are relatively easy to deal with, since they are so common. Sometimes women can take care of ovulation issues on their own, by using over the counter fertility pills such as fertility blends or prenatal vitamins.

However, if that doesn’t work, women should rest assured that there are other options out there as well, such as prescription drugs like Clomid, or even injection shots like gonadotropins if nothing else works. All in all, the main point is that there are options out there for everyone, no matter what the case may be. All it takes is an open mind, and perhaps speaking to a doctor or professional if things don’t go the way that you think they should.

     “Sometimes all it takes is very simple changes to make things better and to improve fertility, so women should definitely take heart and know that there is hope out there to improve fertility even when you least expect it!”
