I take pregnancy prep with my folic acid because it has a ton of different things that are good for TTC in it, but it's all in one pill.

This website was very helpful for me. There are some things that I started using this cycle and some other things that I plan on using in future cycles. There is a lot of information as to the purpose of each supplement and they have a list of supplements that can be combined or that cannot be taken together. I didn't actually purchase any of the supplements from this site b/c they are a little pricey. You can find pretty much the same items at your local heath food store or on Amazon.
Fertility Enhancers

This cycle I am using:
Pregnancy Prep (this stuff is awesome) - WARNING- I found that if I take the Pregnancy Prep at the same time as the prenatal it made my stomach hurt
Progesterone Cream from ovulation to AF
Vitamins B and E and a prenatal
I'm drinking a tea that has both Red Raspberry Leaf and Nettle in it called by Yogi
Earlier in my cycle I used castor oil packs and epsom salt baths
I was also taking chlorophyll and aloe juice

If you want to know the reasons why I am using any of these I will explain in more detail if you like.

I'm sure curious about the epsom salt and aloe juice...These are the two things that I've never heard about.
Thinking about the castor oil packs - have you noticed anything since doing this?

Th aloe juice helps to cleanse the system. Epsom salt is supposed to help bring hormones into balance. Pretty much all of the supplements I take are in an attempt to balance my hormones.

I have only used the castor oil pack a few times b/c you're only supposed to use them after AF and up to ovulation. I'm hoping to use it more next cycle. Basically I don't really know that I've noticed any differences or not at this point.
