Fertility treatments are very expensive and some couples simply cannot afford them. If you are in this group who are desperately looking to have children of your own, but are unable to afford the treatments that are typically involved with fertility issues, you may be able to find relief on the shelves of your neighborhood pharmacy or drugstore.

Although these methods are not proven and may not be as effective as traditional fertility treatments, many have been used for centuries when women are struggling to have children. The following may be some items that you want to take a look at if you are struggling to become pregnant.

1. Black Cohosh

If you are struggling to produce strong and healthy eggs, Black Cohosh could be the answer for you. It will also stimulate your ovaries and has the power to eliminate some of the symptoms that you typically see with your normal menstrual cycle. This should only be taken while you are ovulating, so you will need to track your ovulation cycle carefully while you are taking this drug.

2. Ovulex

Ovulex is effective in regulating your body so that it is functioning better overall. The downside of this pill is that it does take some time to work because it is working with your entire body. It helps you become pregnant by regulating your reproductive hormones that are directly responsible for the conception process.


You will need to monitor your ovulation cycle and have intercourse accordingly while you are taking Ovulex. It is also suggested that you maintain a healthy diet and exercise program.

3. Evening Primrose Oil

If you are having problems with your cervical mucus, Evening Primrose Oil may be extremely helpful. Although cervical mucus is not something that must be present in order to become pregnant, it can help guide and protect the sperm while it swims to its destination. Evening Primrose Oil can help make that journey a little easier by making sure that your cervical mucus is in the best shape for this journey.

4. Volume Pills

It is also possible that your partner is having problems with fertility, although this is not often discussed with your doctor. Volume Pills can help increase the motility of the sperm as well as the quality and quantity of them. Although you may not be able to find these on the shelves in stores, they are available through a number of online outfits and you do not need a prescription to purchase them.
