Me and my fiance have been TTC for one year with no luck. I have a ten year old daughter and he has no children. I also have hypothyroidism which makes it difficult to get pregnant. I am going out to buy the Geritol liquid today. Oh I forgot to mention,my fiance has been taking men's 1 a days. Please pray for us and any suggestions would help!!

i just started GT 5 days ago. I've found that having something to drink and a peppermint ready BEFORE you fill the med. cup with the tonic. Hurry and fill and drink the dose take a drink of something and hurry and chew up the peppermint. It doesn't taste bad then. But you have to do it FAST.

Geritol worked for me..I couldnt get pregnant in the 2 years I was trying. Now I have an 8 yr old!

Women-take the pills and have your dude drank the liquid!

i have been taking the geritol tonic since Sept now. the taste is bad when you first start it and at the end of the bottle. must be the alcohol. My last period only lasted 3 days and 2 of them was just spotting. Did not take a test. Waiting to see if AF comes this weekend or early next week. AF is getting more spaced out here lately. used to be every 28 days but now keeps skipping 3 days every month.. Have 2 kids ages 8 & 6 beening trying for baby #3 for 5yrs. finally had a dnc in august but needed one for the past 5 yrs, thick lining due to PCOS. If not pregnant than thinking about making husband take the tablets at least while i take the tonic... Best wishes and prayers o everyone out there trying to conceive. With my first child we had said if it happened it happened if not then we will adopt and i got pregnant. I know i have to just relax and let it go. sometimes i do and sometimes i get depressed thinking its never gonna happen again.

I say yes they work I been tryin to get pregnant for about 5 yrs. Never happened then I. Was takin them for 56 days and come to find out I was 3weeks pregnant but then I stopped and had a miscarriage  so after that I. Start taking prenatal vitamins And its been 5 months and I'm not pregnant yet so I started back taking geritol today....

We're spending a lot of time reading the success stories of everyone else, and I personally can not wait to post our own. It's like everywhere we look someone's pregnant. We're in our thirties. We've been married for 9 months, and having a baby would bring us so much joy. I caint wait till she gives me the news of her pregnancy

I'm new to this blog but have been reading up on this Geritol rumor for a min now. A co-worker told me to try Geritol. And knowing me with my crazy self I went out after work and brought some if it. I'm taking the liquid form now. I've been TTC for the past 5-6 months now. So I said I'll try it. It won't hurt but make me go to bathroom more...lol. Anywho, so far it's been two weeks since I've been taking it. I Started taking it after my last cycle in Nov. My cycle was regularly 25-26days long.Then it shortened to 23days before taking Geritol complete. Since I've started taking it, my cycle for this month went back to 27 days long. So I thought I was prego, but I wasn't.  So hopefully this cycle Geritol will work it's magic and grant me that baby in the bottle after-all. I will post immediately if anything happens this cycle. I wish you all luck and I pray this myth really works.

Hello well I will post my story I have a 5yr old soon to be 6! When I was 18 I thought I had it figured out tried to get pregnant for my high school sweetheart and was unsuccessful.... Then I decided that's not what I wanted and pursued my future and began working. At the age of 19 I became very fatigued sleeping whenever I was working. Mind you I thought I couldn't get pregnant but was told that gt would help with fatigue. Boy did it was feeling great then I missed my period. Never been late in 9 years and missed got pregnant on gt in a month! didn't even take it consistently just every other day. I wasn't until I was speaking with an old co worker I found out it aids in fertility and I didn't even know I was pregnant.

Good luck I'm at a pretty good point in my life I think I might start again!

Hey well it didn't  happen last cycle however I have come up with a theory since I've only got pregnant on gt, its safe to say I have a hormonal imbalance. I may not ovulate each month or ovulate poorly. So I will continue taking gt to balance my hormones because I no longer see fertile cm and have a chin hair every other month. I honestly only see fertile cm every few months or so and just feel out of balance completely. Making big changes to my diet and activities and try to conceive in June after the wedding.

Good luck all!!!
