In February of this year, I started on Pregnitude; I know I wanted to be a Pregnitude success story, but before buying it I did some quick research. It seemed to be a supplement that could really help with PCOS. I started it a few days into my cycle in hopes that, if anything, it would help my cycles to regulate to help prepare my body during the trying to conceive process (and, of course, I wouldn’t mind being one of the countless Pregnitude success stories!). I dutifully took it morning and night mixed into my spearmint tea — it’s completely tasteless, so unlike other supplements it wasn’t a chore to take. If I could be a Pregnitude success story without a disgusting taste in my mouth, all the better.
I am a late ovulator to being with (thank you, PCOS) on even my best cycles; I can’t remember a time where I ovulated before day 20. My previous cycle, that’s exactly what I did, so I was hoping to keep it around day 20 with the help of Pregnitude. If you read my last update on Pregnitude, you know by now that I ended up ovulating on day 21.
(Want to know how to track my ovulation? Check out my ovulation tracking post!)
You all know I believe that the absolute best OPKs out there are the super-cheap Wondfo ones, so I ordered not too long ago the Wondfo combination of 50 ovulation AND 20 pregnancy tests. Guess the price? An insane $22. I love Amazon. And I loved being able to use the tests willy-nilly.
The Testing Begins. Fingers Crossed for a Pregnitude Success Story
I decided to try testing about 7dpo (days past ovulation). I tested at night (dumb, I know) and got a negative…this was WAY too early to discover if I was a Pregnitude success story, and I kicked myself for doing it. The next morning at 8dpo, I tested again, thinking it would also be too early:
My heart dropped as I could’ve sworn I saw a very faint line. I had two extra First Response Early Response (FRER) tests so I took one of those, too:
This one was harder to tell. I would’ve thought it would’ve been clearer since FRER is supposedly the leader in early tests. What I should’ve done that day was invert the photo, which would’ve looked like this:
See it? Holy crap. Just in case you’re not convinced, here’s another positive FRER at 10dpo:
So, does this count as one of the many Pregnitude success stories? I don’t know. I was fully expecting conceiving to take several months, at least…especially considering how wacky PCOS has made my cycles, but maybe, just maybe with the help of Pregnitude I was able to get pregnant much more quickly than if I had gone it alone. No matter if I am a Pregnitude success story or someone that has just gotten lucky, I’ll take it!
If you’re contemplating starting Pregnitude, I’ll ask you this? What do you have to lose (ok, aside form $35-$40)? If you’re wondering where to buy Pregnitude, I’ve found the best deals for Pregnitude on Amazon and for Pregnitude on Drugstore.com.
Being a “Pregnitude success story” does have one downfall — the hair. I’ll go into more detail soon about my experience with hair loss during my last pregnancy and about my anxiety with this pregnancy (and after). I can promise you one thing: it’s going to be a roller-coaster!
One final pic. I’m now 14 weeks, but here’s me around 11 weeks:
Thought I’d come back and give a little update. Well, no words are really needed, are they? Meet my Pregnitude baby!

Congratulations Lauren! My husband and I are TTC and I recently found out I have PCOS and I stumbled upon your blog and was reading it! I am on Metformin right now, is it safe to use Pregnitude with Metformin or no? Should Metformin work as well as pregnitude? I am desperately trying to have my miracle baby.
I’ve heard of plenty of women taking both so you should be ok, but, of course, ask your practitioner! Best of luck!!
Hi Lauren, I started the Preginitude on June 22, 2015 and I took provera along with it by my doctor’s advise. I had my period on 7/11/15 since than i did not get my period. I did check the pregnancy test which was negative -period late,sore boobs, breast really hurts when i touch and i also have back pain and feel like will have period and its happening since two weeks. I did not take provera this after that. So please advise. Thanks
Maybe see your practitioner for a blood test?
Can I take Provera along with Pregnitude?
I think I’ve heard that you can, but a quick call to your doc will verify this.
Hi, I just got my packet yesterday in mail. I am started taking the Pregnitude today for the first time. I got married nine and half years ago with no luck did not conceived. I had a miscarriage after five months of my pregnancy in 2013 and it was natural pregnancy with no medicine taken to get pregnant. I took Provera to regulate my cycle and clomid & they did not work for me. Doctor recommended me to go see the infertility specialist since no insurance coverage so I gave up. Finally i found out about Pregnitude so wish me Luck ladies. Keeping my fingers crossed. Please please god keep the blessing on me.
Hi, Lauren,I am about to buy pregnitude after reading all the positive blogs. Do you have to take it even in your periods until you get pregnant and if you get pregnant than need to stop it. hope if you are taking it regularly even in your period nothing will happens to the baby. Thanks
Yep, keep taking it through your periods until you get your positive. 🙂 Good luck!
Hi there! I was just diagnosed with pcps a few days ago. Ive been trying to track my ovulation for the last 3 months my doctor does not think I’m ovulating at all. She told me to take pregnitude for 3 months and then revisit if i did not get pregnant she said climid was the next thing to try. Does pregnitude help with ovulation. i do get my period ever month but they range from 30-36 days. any help of inspiration you have i would love to hear!!!
Hi Briana! Pregnitude can definitely help with ovulation! Give it a try and see what happens. Why does your doc think you aren’t ovulating?
the build up of cysts on my ovaries I don’t have a dominate follicle! hopefully this works!
So I am 28 years old I have pretty serious PCOS I have not had a period in 5 months I just took my first dose of pregnitude after my OBGYN visit this afternoon. My purpose for starting this medication was MOSTLY to regulate my cycle because honestly being a married woman and not getting a period for 5 months is a scary deal and I want to fix this before it becomes too late for me to concieve EVER. My husband and I are not necessarily TTC but we are not preventing it either and both of us agreed we couldn’t see ourselves going out of the way to prevent a pregnancy that has little chance of happening to begin with and give up our chance to ever become parents. (I hope that makes sense lol) I am wondering how fertile this supplement actually makes you and if anyone has any advice on my situation…BTW congrats on your success story if I have one of my own I will swear it’s a crazy dream.
Hi this blog has given me so much hope thank you I’m 27 just recently diagnosed with PCOS my Dr prescribed pregnitude and pre natal vitamins. I’ve been taking them since June 3rd I just got my AF yesterday so fingers crossed this will be my month to get pregnant!!!!!
I tried pregnitude and clomid the summer of 2013 and became pregnant August 2013. It worked for me !!!! I am PCOS since age 15. My cycles were absent for years!!! After I had my son , my cycles came EVERY MONTH NOW!!!! I thank God for our blessings and for hearing of pregnitude.
So good to hear!!
Eryn- i am so excited to hear your success story as I am starting clomid and.pregnitude this month. How many mgs ofclomid were you taking with the supplement? I am taking 50 mg.
Hello ,I have been married for 2 years now,with no luck with babies.i have tried clomid ,prenatal vitamins and folic acid..about 2 month ago I saw a obgyn he gave a prescription of citral natal 90 had..it is to expensive but I started it last week..I feel my ovulation pain hiigh body tempature and ,but I can’t get pregnant…
What fo you mean you cannot get pregnant?
Lisa, she probably means that it just hasn’t happened yet.
Josephine, have you confirmed ovulation aside from just feeling high body temperature? You can do this by temping at home, or the doc can confirm it for you if you are ready to go that route.
Reading all these stories really keep me positive in getting a success story with pregnitude I have been trying to convpcieve for three years with no luck. It’s my fourth day on pregnitude so far I’ve been having an upset stomach fingers crossed for a success story :
We have been trying for over 8yrs been diagnosed pcos, ir, and now diabetic. Ordered preg. As a one last try before giving up on having a family. I took it for 4 days and I have had major mood shift where I feel completely hostile over the little things. So I stopped taking it for 2 days and I feel like myself again. Anyone have this type of reaction?
Hi Im new to pregnitude. I had the iud for 3 years and i took it out on April 8, 2014 I have regular cycles. And no problems with Ovulating. My sister works for a OBgyn and she suggested I try Pregnitude to help speed it up. So i hope i get my BFP.
I hope it works for you!
Hey! I always seems to come back & read this same blog again every time I have a question.
We’ve been TTC for 7 months. I’ve been testing with OPKs for 4 months. My cycle was every other month & I only ovulated every other month. I started Pregnitude two months ago on March 21st. Technically this would be my “off month” if nothing changes w the Pregnitude. I was testing last week when my app said I should have ovulated & there was an extremely faint test line, like not even really there, so I quit testing. Yesterday I was having some slight cramping & thought maybe I was about to start my period. Nothing. I came home & took an OPK & the test line was actually pretty dark. It’s not positive yet though! I’m hoping I’ll ovulate in the next few days. I’m on CD 25 & my cycles are usually anywhere from 50-60 days long. Crossing my fingers & praying like crazy.
On what day did Pregnitude help y’all ovulate after you started it?
I have VERY severe PCOS with the hirtutism & hypoplastic tubular breasts type 1 & everything. My hormones have been absolutely terrible for as long as I can remember!
It would help so much to get some encouragement to keep taking Pregnitude & not give up! I got a little discouraged when I didn’t O or start my cycle when I was supposed to this month. I just want a normal cycle or a bfp!
As you know for me it was CD20 or 21. You might consider testing 2x/day when you think you might be close. Many studies have shown you have the best chance for catching your highest levels in early evening. Good luck!
I started pregnitude on the 6 the day after AF and I got my first positive opk on the 20th and it’s staying positive for 8 days test line real dark idk what’s going on I hope I am pregnant can anyone help me
What OPKs are you using? Also, have you taken an actual pregnancy test? OPKs typically will show positive when pregnant – I used them as pseudo-pregnancy tests after I got my first few positives on “real” tests. I was kind of obsessed with testing…
Wow, your story touched my heart. Thank you and Congratulation again ^^. I’ve ordered Pregnitude from Wallsgreen. I’m taking Vitex too. Just a question. Did you take other medicines while you were taking pregnitude? How was your diet? (I googled and it is said that PCOS women shouldn’t use dairy products) And I am a little bit underweight. Do you think I should do some exercises? Looking forward to hearing from you. Thank you so much
I wasn’t on any other meds at the time, but I know many who were on fertility-type drugs while using Pregnitude. My diet was fairly clean–not the best–and I never eliminated dairy. Being underweight *can* be an issue when TTC. You might want to consider bringing up your weight to the healthy range by eating plenty of good fats. Some exercise is good, but don’t exercise for weight loss, for sure. 🙂
Hi Lauren, I’ve just been diagnosed with PCOS and was googling Pregnitude when I came across your blog.
I’m 30 yo, not trying to conceive at the moment but have been frustrated with my very irregular period (currently on 108 days which is my longest yet!!!) I don’t have the usual PCOS symptoms as I am actually a little underweight, I don’t have acne problems or excessive facial hair. The only problem I noticed was thinning hair, which I have been getting treatments for. My AMH results were very high which was indicative on PCOS although ultrasound didn’t really show anything.
I am in Australia so it’s a lot trickier to try to get Pregnitude but I’ve managed to place an order online today. Can’t wait to see how it goes. I have been taking Premular (Vitex) which is supposed to help regulate your period as well.
Do you have to take Pregnitude with spearmint tea? How long after you started taking it before your period became regular?
108 days – wow! You definitely don’t have to take Pregnitude with anything but water. Spearmint tea is supposed to help regulate testosterone levels, and mine were within a normal range but a little high. My periods never “got regular” being on Pregnitude because I got pregnant right away. 🙂 I completely expected my cycles to get longer and longer however, and Pregnitude helped to keep them as-is (which was ovulation on or about cycle day 20) which was a HUGE accomplishment. I’m not sure what would’ve happened had I not conceived right away. I may try it again once I’m done nursing, after I assess how my cycle starts to misbehave (it’s inevitable!). Right now I’m just enjoying no period, period. 🙂
hi have ben trying for 2 years and I just started pregnitude today will it work I hop so so so bad I am taking red clover with it so ges we will see I am trying not to loos hope but it is so hard
Good luck! 🙂 Are you ovulating regularly?
Thanks for the quick response 🙂 I am getting very frustrated with opk’s! So maybe you can help… I use the cbe digital two days of blinking smileys leading up to a solid smile (which is suposed to mean positive) which is followed by light (sorry I know TMI I despise CM talk) then usually a week later I have a significant amount of ewcm and af appears two weeks after this. For example I had positive opk Jan.13,14,15,16th then on January 26th &27 I had a significant amount of ewcm and waa-la two weeks later 2/10 AF shows up. This month same thing, positive opk on the Feb. 23th &24th, significant amount of ewcm mar.2nd &3rd. Luckily this time I am catching on to my patterns ( I hope.)
I don’t temp, I am a very restless sleeper and work crazy hours I feel like my results would only make things more tricky for me.
I guess only time and continuous tracking will tell, it just gets so frustrating waiting for that bfp! Thanks for all your guidance your site is amazing!! And I love the toppers, they look great 🙂
Even though you are a restless sleeper, you might give temping a try. I was a diagnosed insomniac for many years and I still had typical patterns when temping. It does sound strange that you are getting positive OPKs but then AF 3-4 weeks later. Maybe you just have a super-long luteal phase? That’s what I’m wondering if you add in a second level of monitoring (be it temping, ferning, etc.) if it would help you to determine your ovulation. For me, CM is rarely an indicator. Sometimes I have it around O, sometimes not.
Do you have a negative OPK during times of significant CM?
Hi! I was also googling pregnitude and stumbled across your blog (which is completely amazing!) I have just a few questions for you but first I guess I’ll share a little information about me. Hubby and I have been ttc for 7 months and I recently found out I have pcos. I have been using opk’s for the last 3 months and they are always positive and result in a bfn. I know that you can have an lh surge and not ovulate but have you ever had a positive opk and ovulated over a week later? As a late ovulater Pregnitude made you ovulate earlier? Im sorry OPK’s confuse the heck out of me lol!
I started pregnitude this month, last day of my cycle per my obgyn as an attempt before metoformin. Just for knowledge for your other readers absolutely no side effects for me thus far, taken on empty stomach, full stomach, and when I wake up/ before bed which constantly fluctuate. Positive OPK on cycle day’s 13&14 ewcm on day 15 (which never ever happens for me!) fingers crossed!!
Are your OPKs always positive? Or do you get them only a few times/month? Also, are you tracking your temps? I personally have not had an LH surge and no ovulation, however, I have heard you can have two in one cycle. Pregnitude didn’t make me ovulate sooner per se, however, it helped me to stay stable.
Good luck! If you have any OPK questions let me know – I’ve conceived twice with them so I consider myself a sort of expert. 🙂
Just purchased my Prenitude. My husband and myself are very excited for this, as we have been trying for 10 years now. Does anyone have any advise or side effects that i should be warned about.
Good luck, Sherri! I haven’t heard of any side effects, but maybe someone else will chime in.
I had some gas (and tummy troubles) the first week, but I think it was just my body getting used to the folic acid.
I took it in an empty stomach every morning and it didn’t bother me and I have a sensitive stomach.
I wanted to share my success story. I wrote on here a few months again after I bought my first month of Pregnitude. I’ve had pcos since 2005 and been on Glumetza since. When I went off bc in march I stopped getting AF. My husband and I started trying in August and no luck so I started Prenitude in November. Well, Christmas Eve I got my period! And now just three months into Pregnitude I have a BFP! I have no doubt in my mind it’s bc of the Pregnitude and this blog convinced me to get it. Thank you so much!!!!
Ahhh that gives me so much hope!! Congratulations!!
OMG! How exciting! When is your EDD?? 2014 is going to be an awesome year for you!
Thanks! Our EDD is the end of September, we go to the dr on the 12th. I cannot thank you enough for this blog!
I hear Lauren is a great name for a baby girl. 🙂 Kidding – congrats again!
Ah, your blog made a believe, I was diagnosed with PCOS a year ago after ttc for 8 months, I am 23 and have always had late or no show periods. In about a 6 month span I gained 35 pounds and freaked out and finally made my doctor search long and hard, finally they sent me a fertility specialist and he determined it was PCOS and put me on Aldactone, Provera and Metformin. I couldnt take the Metformin, it was torture on my body, i lost 20 pounds and ended up dehydrated. not fun. finally about 5 months ago i cut almost all my sugar intake and stopped taking all prescriptions and started taking Prenatal Vitamins and Melatonin before bed and have been slowly loosing weight, my periods about every 32 days and i for the first time in a year ovulated!! I was over the moon when i went on Pinterest and decided to see what PCOS tips I could find, I stumbled across your blog and immediately went to Amazon and made my purchase, it should be here tomorrow. I am very excited, thank you!
Good luck! Let us know how it goes! 🙂
Hi so I have been reading a lot of success stories for pregnitude so I bought some…should I take it on it’s own or does it work better combined with a fertility drug? I have severe pcos and no period since getting off the pill back in July 🙁 Before that I never had a period except when I “started” at 15 and a couple times after that. Ugh.
I’m not expert, but judging from the comments on here it seems most docs want you to try Pregnitude before combining it with drugs. PCOS is such a pain – have you discussed possibly “resetting” your body by doing a round of Provera to bring on your period?
Yep I have normal cycles and everything. Im just not ovul. on time im closer to day 17 so dr said this should help and fingers crossed that I get preg in the next few months. He also said if nothing by Feb he will put me on clomid. So he has lots of faith with Pregnitude! And I do 2!! (Thanks to u 🙂 lol)
Let me know how it goes! 🙂
I will!! 🙂
