Skeptical, but now a believer!
October 23, 2013
When I ordered the starter pack (FertilAid for Men, CountBoost, and MotilityBoost) for my husband in July, I was beyond skeptical. I thought there were just way too many positive reviews and was given to think that some of the people leaving reviews were paid to leave good reviews. THAT being said, I was desperate! I was willing to try anything to help my husband's sperm situation. When we left our RE appointment in July his count was 6 million and his motility was practically at 0. His morphology has a slight issue. They said it was at 3%, and 4% our higher was the norm. Our test earlier this year in February, he only had a count of 4 million. I don't recall the motility that far back, but morphology was the same.
So anyhow, I convinced my husband to give these a go for 3 months and then we would have the next sperm test with sperm wash that my RE suggested. My RE wasn't even sure we could do IUI because his count was so low before a wash. Well, I got the call back from my RE's office and my husbands count was 91 million before wash!!!!! I had to ask him to repeat that. He said it was 'much improved!' The nurse actually asked us what we did differently the past few months to cause such a drastic improvement and I told her about FertilAid. She didn't seem very 'sold' but she had never heard of FertilAid. I know I am a believer now! His motility is still not in normal ranges, but it has improved pretty drastically too. Post-wash he had 11 million count, 38% rapid motility, 35% slow motility, and 3% morphology. The morphology didn't change, but everything else was a pretty significant improvement!
So if your only male infertility problem is count or motility, and not morphology or something requiring surgery... you should definitely give this product a try! My husband has the absolute WORST diet which probably influenced his sperm. These supplements definitely helped to offset his bad eating habits!
Pros:It was a relatively inexpensive way to fix a problem that would have had us doing IVF with ICSI otherwise.
Cons:You have to take 7 pills at various times of the day.
