I had done some research and heard alot of interesting stories. My boyfriend and I have been trying to get pregnant for 3 years I just recently started taking birth control pills but only took it for a month until my period came wen I was almost done with my period I went out and bought a bottle of GERITOL COMPLETE I have been taking them for 5 days now and I have not gotten any side affect. When I was at Walgreens buying the tablets the wroker asked what I needed Geritol for I told her about my research and she said that was interesting and she had never heard it before she had suggested I take the geritol tonice because the liquid formula had been around longer in some of the postings I have read the geritol Tonic works better I suggest you try that first I would have bought the Geritol Tonic if I would have known ahead of time well hopefully with the pills I get results because I am really looking foward in being a mommy

Hey everyone, I started my geritol the last week in august, and had a normal cycle in september. Well it is now October, and my friend still has not shown up....fingers crossed. My boobs hurt and I am tired but my preggers test are coming back negative. i am not worried though because i would only be 4wks pregnant and with my son it took me to be 7 1/2 wks preggers before a test read positive...I will let you all know...BTW Congrat day_day805

I recently loss my twins (boy and Girl) on 4-23-11. I started Geritol like a month before I thought i was prego. I only took about 5 pills that was surprising to me because I didnt think worked. Every since my loss at 23 weeks 5 days along, I wanted t try again. I knw i need to wait a while, but the longer I wait, it seems like the more I hurt. Just brought some GC and planning on starting them soon. I dnt know what the outcome will be this time, but I am praying all goes well.

I am 37, and will be 38 soon.  I've been TTC for 6 months. My boyfriend already has a son, so I know he is not the problem.  I've been taking Royal Jelly, Noni Juice, Vitex, and Prenatal Vitamins for the duration, with no success. My OB/GYN just got 2 months of blood tests back and progesterone is good (in the 13 range).  She refuses to check my tubes because she is convinced there is no reason they would be blocked (no prior pregs, no abortions, no surgeries to create scar tissue). I am so furstrated, and time is ticking away considering my boyfriend is a muscian and will leave on tour soon.  I just bot the Geritol Tonic and Complete today.  I will take the tonic in the morning with my Noni Juice and the Complete at bedtime (subbing for prenatals). If this doesn't work, I just have to accept that God does not have it in his plan for us. Thanks for the dialogue.

I DO NOTagree with your doctor not checking you! I was TTC from 35 - 37 years old. Almost one year of that was with Clomid and IUI. I finally went to a fertility specialist. The first thing he did was check my tubes which were clear. He then did a laparoscopy and found scar tissue around my ovaries. The scar tissue was creating a net so every time I would release an egg, it would never make it's was down. I was pregnant on my own 3 weeks after the surgery... I never had surgeries previously to create scar tissue. If your doctor does not want to check further, I would go to one who does.. Take it from me, the older you get the harder it gets to get pregnant. I had a baby boy in 2003 and wanted more kids but was then diagnosed with breast cancer. After more years going by and luckily getting the all clear to get pregnant, I was 42. After 5 failed IVF attempts with my eggs, I used donor eggs. I am now 48 with 3 beautiful children.  Sorry for the long drawn out story. My point is to have your doctor check you, it is so important. I wish you all the best.

Fair warning- this is straight from the Geritol's website "Geritol® multivitamin is safe when used as directed. However, if you are taking any prescription medication, are under the care of a physician for a medical condition, or are pregnant or nursing, consult with your physician before using any medication or nutritional supplement. The use of Geritol multivitamin has not been studied in pregnant women. It is not a substitute for a prenatal vitamin."  The only true way to get pregnant is lots of unprotected sex. Good luck!
