1. Vitamins For Ovulation

There are many reasons that women might want to turn to over the counter vitamin options to help them ovulate instead of traditional fertility treatments. First of all, the sheer cost of traditional fertility treatments puts them out of the hands of many women who could benefit from them. Other women simply do not want to go through the hassle of visiting a fertility specialist.


Some women simply want more natural alternatives to prescription drugs and fertility treatments, and are opting for a more natural approach. Luckily, there are several options available for women who are wanting to help boost their ovulation naturally. Read on for some of the most popular vitamins for helping women ovulate.

2. The B Vitamins

When it comes to ovulation and conception, the B group of vitamins are very important. B Vitamins can help the reproductive system become healthier and will also help increase the chances of becoming pregnant. Vitamin B6 is very important because it helps to regulate a woman’s hormones.


Vitamin B can be found in cereal, avocado, spinach, pork, eggs, milk, fish, asparagus, chicken, trout, potatoes, peanut butter and bananas. The recommended daily intake amount of Vitamin B6  is 100 mg per day.

3. Folic Acid

Folic Acid is probably the very most important vitamin related to fertility and conception. Women who consistently take a folic acid supplement are less likely to suffer from egg production problems or ovulation problems. Taking folic acid is a great way to lower your risk of having a baby with neural tube defects like spina bifida.


Folic acid is naturally found in leafy greens, citrus fruits, beans, and whole grains. It is also added to some foods that are labeled as “enriched”, such as cereal, bread, flour and pasta. The recommended daily allowance of Folic Acid is 400 mcg per day.

Some women who have a greater risk of having a baby with a neural tube defect might need more than this amount, so ask your doctor. Taking folic acid before you get pregnant, while you are trying to conceive, is a great idea to protect your baby before you even get pregnant.

4. Iron

Iron is a very important vitamin for improving fertility and also for regulating ovulation. If a woman doesn’t get enough iron, she can become anemic, which will affect her ovulation. When you combine iron with Vitamin C, the fertility results are even better. Be aware that iron does sometimes cause constipation, so make sure that you increase your fluid intake while you are taking this supplement.


You can also get iron from food sources such as red meat, leafy greens, beans, dried fruits, oysters, and egg yolks. The recommended daily intake amount of iron is 54 mg per day.

5. Calcium

Calcium is very important for all women because it helps to protect bones and teeth, but it is even more important for pregnant women, because that same amount of calcium will be helping your baby’s bones and teeth to grow as well.


It is recommended that women who are over 18 get 1000 mg per day of calcium. That is recommended for before, during and after pregnancy. Calcium is so important, but not only just for pregnancy. It can help strengthen bones and improve overall body processes like ovulation for women at any stage of life.
