Geritol Tonic ugh!!!
Okay, so I read a post that said to take Geritol Tonic, I have been taken Geritol tablets for months now, but they said to take liquid form, so I go to the store and pick some up it says to take a tablespoon so I pour it- can you say gross!!!! The smell of it turned my stomach, so I tasted it but could not swallow it, yuck!!!

I purchased my geritol tonic today and I took my first dose, wow......it was a bit tough, i almost barfed, but i managed to keep it down followed by a swig of ginger ale. It has a bad after taste. If it will help me get pregnant its worth it. I will not miss a day. It only cost $6.59 for the 12 oz bottle at my local pharmacy. Worth a try! Good luck to all of you ladies.

My co worker told me about geritol so of course I did my research and found thousands of women swearing by this stuff and so non believers but whatever  t I went out and grabbed a bottle of geritol complete(tablets) I asked the pharmacist she told me the tonic main ingr. Is sugar SUGAR? With 12% alchol talthough tonic go to your blood stream gaster complete are more of a multivitamin. So I started on 11/11/2010 hopefully there is a baby in the bottle for me baby dust will keep u all up dated

First off, read this about Geritol:
http://www.ehow.com/how-does_4567275_geritol-aid-pregnancy_.html

Second, what are all these 19 year olds on here worring about getting PG!?! At 19 don't worry... Be happy you aren't yet.

Having a baby is a blessing, but please, spend a little time as an adult before you decide you are ready to bring another person into this world and raise them.

I just started taking Geritol with Ferrex 18 and also prenatal vitamins today. My cycle just went off on March 28th. Do you have to take it while you are on your cycle?? Is it good to take it all month leading up to your cycle?? Also does it hurt to take the Geritol with prenatal vitamins?? Did this really work for anyone?? Me and my husband would really like to have a child.

I have been ttc for two years and nothing. My hair dresser told me to talk geritol, calling it the old school pregnancy booster. well, after months of not having any luck I decided to go get a bottle of the geritol tonic. Yes, it is gross but I'm really hoping this works because just like you guys I am so eager to become a parent. will keep you posted!! but please keep me and everyone else in this blog in your prayers!!

Hi I'm 28 years and my husband and I have been trying to concieve for 7 years with no luck. His mother suggested that I take geritol (liquid), it was so gross that I decided my husband should have to suffer through it to. After 2 weeks we stopped taking it and I dismissed the whole idea that that stuff would actually work. 6 weeks later I became terribly sick I thought I had just caught this bug that's been going around my office. After 4 days of not being able to hold down any solids I decided to seek professional help, and of course I went through the could you be pregnant questions first and I told the DR absoleutly not, but she did the test anyway and I'm 11 weeks and 3 days I still can't believe it. So my advice is to take it as long as you can stomach it. Wish me luck and be blessed.

I have seen that this post is starting to die out and its so hard to find success stories that you can follow online so i have decided that this month will be the month for me to began ttc. I am 24 and my soon to be husbands is 35. I have pcos and will have a period one, two or maybe three times in a row and do not see my period again for 3 to 4 months. Anyway i tried having kids about 4 years ago with my hubby to be and had no luck, this time around i decided to go talk to my mother about ttc and she told me about the problems she had when ttc. She also told me about her taking geritol tonic and getting pregnant with her first child(me) the first month. So to test this theory i have done my research and have come up with a plan that i think will work.

I am taking the following things:
soy isoflavones cd 1-5 -80mg cd1-2---120mg cd3----180mg cd 4-5  (helps you ovulate or makes it more intense)
geritol tonic (liquid form, i took the pill for 2 years it did nothing for me)
prenatal vitamin ( for the folic acid, prepares your body for pregnancy decreasing the chances of miscarriages)
metformin 500mg twice a day
for the people that dont kno your 1 cd is the day after the last day of your period.

*i am currently on cd3 and i can tell my body is changing due to the vitamins my cervical mucus which is usually doesnt exist, i have now! My plans are also after my cd5 of the soy isoflavones to began taking robitussin untill after ovulation(to create sperm frendly cm)!!

i will continue to post up dates on whats going on with me for all the people that are tired of accepting pcos and help overcoming it!!!

I'm with a previous poster that expressed concern with the teenagers TTC.  I'm more interested in the stories similar to mine.  I'm 39 and have been trying nearly 12 years.  My friend told me about the baby in a bottle miracle that helped her conceive.  Both my husband and I will be starting tomorrow.   Baby dust blessings to all the woman that's been trying for year's.

Please DO NOT TAKE LIQUID GERITOL UNLESS YOUR DEFICIENT IN IRON! your doctor will tell you with a blood test!.. Geritol liquid also have high doses of b vitamins. Geritol liquid made me sick to my stomach with an internal sick feeling I can't  explain. I took it because my ferrittin iron stores was a 16. I do not believe it was the iron that made me sick but it was the large dose of b vitamins which was more that rda or fda recommendations. Check with your doctor and please dont take it for any other reason.  Did it give me immediate energy ...yes it did..but once it circulated in my system hours later i got really sick at night or in the morning and alot of times both. Msde several trips to hospital till I figured out what it was.. Any questions my email is ***@****
