Any truth to Geritol and Pregnancy

Does anyone have a success story about getting pregnant after using Geritol.  I have heard that can increase the chances of TTC

I had started taking Geritol Complete (so has my husband) before I became pregnant as well.  The old folks say, "There's a baby in every bottle" but I think praying works best ;)  GOD bless you during your pregnancy!

It worked for me!! I tried to conceive for a total of 15 months. The month I took Gerital Complete---I GOT PREGNANT!!!!! Just a little too coincidental, I think.
They are simply an over-the-counter high potency vitamin---so it's good for you regardless.
I have heard too---"There's a baby in every bottle". I would for sure give it a try---I have heard plenty of other success stories besides mine.

Does anyone know if its necessary for both myself as well as my husband to take Geritol or is just my using it ok? We have been trying for the last three months and every month I'm pretty disappointed. Have been to to the doctor this month ahead of time and both the urnine test as well as the blood test came back negative. I'm hoping that we will conceive in September..

This is interesting, never heard of this at all.  I do know that I was taking a TON of different vitamins and minerals (from my family's healthfood store) when I got pregnant with Lilith.  I still believe that had an effect on finally conceiving a healthy baby.

Well, I've heard the stories of geritol working for alot of women who thought they couldn't get pregnant and it worked for them as they say. Now it's my turn. Hopefully, there's a baby in the bottle for me!

I used it starting right around O and concieved the first time. I bought mine at walmart in the Pharmacy. I only used them until about 8 dpo or so, bc i have heard not to take them once you are pg. It worked for me and now i gave the bottle to one of my friends who is tryong with pcos. Plus, we have been ttc since my dd was 6 months old and she is now 2. Best of luck!
oh yeah and i heard that it does help if your dh does take it also, but not necassary as in my case.

After trying for some time, my husband and I tried Geritol.  We figured why not?  It is vitamins and minerals, so worst case it will just make you healthier.  We both took it daily for three weeks.  It tastes HORRIBLE.  My husband began calling it a$$-i-tol towards the end.  However, after three weeks of taking it, we tried on one of my fertile days.  Yep, just one day, not every day during the ovulation cycle.  Three weeks later, a positive pregnancy test.  I then took a second one to confirm, and yes, positive.  I am now 6 wks. pregnant and swear by Geritol.  I am a science major, so I understand that there are no scientific studies to back its effectiveness.  However, look around the internet.  You will find a world of people saying "no, that doesn't make sense, so therefore it doesn't work".  But yet, you cannot seem to find an abundance of people who actually did try it and were unsuccessful.  The moral of the story - don't knock it, till you try it. ;)
