Well it's taken me awhile but I'm finally writing my success story. Ok, here goes. My hubby and I started trying for kids even before we got married (the beginning of 06). We got married in June and really started focusing our efforts on trying to conceive. A year later we still had not conceived and I was pretty sure that I wasn't ovulating because I was using the clear blue fertility monitor and it never gave me a peak day. So we decided I would start saving all of my paycheck and we would live off of his income and we'd finally start fertility treatment. This was in July. In august I was told that I had PCOS and that I was indeed not ovulating. So August I started my first round of clomid and metformin. That first month I got my hopes up when the doctor told me the medicine had made me ovulateàUnfortunately that month I didn't get pregnant. The second month I bit the bullet and I purchased  #2 FertilEDGE (Herbs for her) for Clomid Users and I also ordered some preseed since I had heard such good things about it. I found out I was pregnant in the middle of October. I was over the moon!!!! I started c rying and trembling because I was in such shock. I really started to think that I'd never have a child of my own or that we would have to go through drastic measures like Invitro. I truly think that me taking the Herbs for Her along with the preseed is what did it. I'm currently 20 weeks pregnant with my little boy Dimitri Sebastian and I couldn't be more happy.

Thank you Momma Kath for your miracle herbs and thank you so much for this wonderful website. The women here were all supportive and I wouldn't have made it through my battle with infertility without all of them. 

 THANKS SO MUCH! Stephanie B. (estephania2182)


Thanks so much for your quick response. First of all I wanted to send you my success story to add to your website. I truly believe it would never have happened without your help and herbs.

I AM 35 yrs and have PCOS and have been struggling with the weight problems all my life. I've also been trying for approx 7 years to have a baby. I did IVF, IUI, FET and absolutely no luck. I started Metformin in March and then saw your website online and read all the wonderful stories about women with similar problems. I contacted you in August and you kindly told me about #7 Restore Ovarian Balance.....well, after 1 month of using this I had a scheduled IUI and guess what I became pregnant. The pregnancy was text book with absolutely no problems...and I absolutely loved it. As I write you this email,our darling daughter now 7 months is sitting on my lap trying to type as well!.... I can't thank you enough... Your website is truly an inspiration.....and the success stories are what kept me going through some painful times when nothing was working. I just wanted to share my story and to give inspiration to others as well not to give up and trust in god!..

I am ready to work on baby no.2 and will continue with the herbs left over from last year. Will keep you posted on the outcome.
With love

I want to thank Momma Kath and her team for getting back to me when I sent an e-mail regarding which products would benefit me the most. I had been trying to conceive my first baby for about a year without any success and was diagnosed with unexplained infertility after having bloodwork done and several infertility tests such as a hysterosalpingogram, and laparoscopy. My husband got himself checked out and he was fine. I was about to give up trying, trying to conceive, but decided to try #3 FertilEDGE Herbs for Her as Momma Kath suggested. I had nothing to lose at this point. I only used the herbs for a month and and half and then found out I was pregnant. I am now 27 weeks along and expecting a little girl in December. My husband and I are ecstatic! I am convinced that what did it for us was the herbs for her! I even told a co-worker of mine who had been trying to conceive for a while with out success about your products. Her husband and her both used your herbs for only a month and now she is 15 weeks pregnant. So thank you Momma Kath for your wonderful herbs and tips!!!! They really do work!


Hello Ladies!
I received an email this morning that rekindled my spirit.

Hi Momma Kath, I just wanted to let you know on June 29th I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. I couldn't have done this without your website your support, guidance and advice. Thanks again for all your help, Cathy

I worked with Cathy for months and she sent me a picture this morning....her long awaited child is here!

My soul is smiling! Thanks so much for giving me this opportunity to help!
Lots of Love and Positive Thoughts ++++

I had a miscarriage last summer, then I did 3 IUI's and 1 IVF to no avail. I am 39 so I've been wondering if my age was a factor. Well after taking your #3 Herbs for Her for only one month I am pregnant! I was too nervous to take the pregnancy test before my period was due, but after it was 3 days late, I decided to take the plunge, and lo and behold, a dark line appeared right away! 

Thank you so much. I believe the #3 Herbs for Her and the acupuncture I've been doing for 2 months really helped.

Dear Momma Kath I purchased  #2 Herbs for Her for Clomid Users a little over a month ago.  I cannot tell you the difference it made in my CM!  Using this along with progesterone cream and I got a positive pregnancy test after 2.5 years of trying!  I have not been able to get pregnant since my miscarriage.  I am 39 years old.   I was also on 150 mg of Clomid.  I am continuing with the progesterone, baby aspirin, Red Raspberry Leaf, B6 and Folic Acid now that I am pregnant.  Thank you for your dedication and products.   I am passing along your site to others who are struggling.  God bless!

After suffering one miscarriage resulting in a D&C early this year I went on Herbs for Her no. 1 with CM enhancer. AF came exactly 4 wks after the D&C, OPK showed OV on CD17 and I got my BFP 12 DPO! I am also taking Protect Early Pregnancy (#5 Herbs for Her) and had my 7wk US today where we saw a good heartbeat. I wish everyone TTC out there the best of luck and thanks to Momma Kath for all your help and support. I am referring many friends to the site and supplements! - Kirstin 


Dear Momma Kath, I began taking #3 Plus Herbs for her (formerly #8 Tame Abnormal Tissue because I had blocked tubes) about 5days into my cycle. I was scheduled to take an HSG in the next month as one of my tubes were blocked and they wanted to find out the state of the other one. The radiologist had to ask me if I was sure that my tube was blocked because - hear this - my 'blocked' tube even had a better and faster spill than the good one!
I really thank God for bringing me to this site and allowing me to heal.
Thanks for all your help.

Another egg white success! 

We haven't been trying too long, just 3 or 4 months, but I noticed right away that I didn't have the right (or any) CM around the time I ovulated. I knew I was ovulating because there's no ignoring the pain when it's happening, so I knew I had to figure out something so we had even the slightest chance of getting pregnant. I had read in TCOYF about using real egg whites, and after using Mucinex without seeing a change in CM, I thought, what the heck. I did a Google search for using real eggwhites and was directed right to your website! I read the instructions carefully, and after reading the "all we did different was eggwhites" success stories, was absolutely ready to give it a shot. We used eggwhites on CD 13 and 14 (the day before ovulation and the day of). I was really excited and had a good feeling about it - for good reason! Yesterday (11 dpo) we got our BFP! I'm shocked and can't believe how "easy" it was - just egg whites! Amazing. We are so blessed and thankful, and pray that the pregnancy is healthy and full term! Here were my symptoms:

  • 1 dpo: mild AF cramping, so mild that I couldn't tell if I was making it up with wishful thinking. A little indigestion.
  • 2 dpo: more AF cramps. I kept catching myself thinking AF was coming because the cramping sensation was so familiar.
  • 3 dpo: woke up with a yicky feeling in my lower abdomen, pretty crampy. Had a bad stomach ache when I went to bed - it felt like I had eaten something bad (but I hadn't).
  • 4 dpo: nothing most of the day. After I ate lunch, though, I got a crazy gurgly, gassy stomach and intestines.
  • 5 dpo: nothing most of the day, but got gassy and gurgly again after lunch, which is abnormal for two days in a row.
  • 6 dpo: weird twinges in my lower abdomen, and VERY emotional - a couple of crying sessions for no real good reason.
  • 7 dpo: felt gross the whole day, and had no appetite. Forced myself to eat lunch and dinner. More achy feelings in the lower abdomen.
  • 8 dpo: bb's started to get sore. Nothing much else, except very slight twinges in the uterus area.
  • 9 dpo: no feelings in the uterus area, but my bb's really got sore, and I was EXHAUSTED by 8 pm. In bed by 9:30.
  • 10 dpo: VERY tired, and VERYsore boobs.
  • 11 dpo: didn't feel much during the day, except exhaustion, which convinced me that I needed to test. BFP!!
  • 12 dpo: feeling crampy and just a "feeling" in my uterus. So exciting!

    Thank you so much for your site and support! We're so thrilled and know that it wouldn't have happened without the eggwhite trick!

    Hi, I have lurked on your site for years. What a great site and community! We tried three years ago but after three months had to stop when the economy went to hell. We finally started again and we were very worried after all of our slips and never getting pregnant that we would have a really hard time. We would try on and off a month here or there or a couple in a row with no success. So this time, we bought the clear blue fertility monitor just to be sure exactly when I was ovulating. We used it for a couple of months and we always got a "high" reading but never the "peak" reading that is supposed to mean you are ovulating. This made us worry but we read that sometimes the monitor takes a couple of months to get to know you. So we tried the monitor again this month hoping to get a "peak" reading and never did. We received the high reading and still had sex around where we thought we should anyway. We had sex three times with a day between each time. 

    Today is Christmas and we woke up to a positive pregnancy test. I could not believe it. I had gotten so wrapped up in thinking we were going to have problems like so many of our friends have. Also, as all of the women on this site know, once you start to try to get pregnant, you feel all kinds of things in your body you thought you never did before. I started to realize during the months that we were not trying that all of those weird feelings are always there, you just never paid so close attention to them. I also often read that the women who would get pregnant would say they had less symptoms than when they got a negative test. The mind tricks you! So any certain things that seemed unusual I discounted, although this time there were a couple of things out of the norm for me. I did not let this fool me and assumed I would be negative..but not so!   

    It is obviously early but we are elated at the ++++ we got.I really wanted to just add to the symptoms part of the site because I know I constantly looked at it while trying.   

    A few things stood out to me:

  • Around ovulation time, sometimes I feel the tenderness or light pressure on my ovary. This disappears in a few hours or a day. This time, I felt that kind of pressure/tenderness even more and it lasted for two days. Either it was intense ovulation or it was after ovulation and my body was reacting or implanting.
  • Another thing is for the last few months, I have been dreaming normally but nothing stood out. Days after ovulation, I had intense, wild dreams. These lasted on and off until now. I definitely noticed them.
  • The last thing was, I often will have tender breasts for a few days in my cycle with really tender nipples. However, they are normally just sore to the touch. This time from 6 DPO to 10 DPO, I had really really sore breast that even hurt just sitting there or when I walked. I felt like they were so obviously sore not even touching them that I wanted to take them off. This stopped at 11 DPO so then I discounted it. But now I see, it was something for sure.
  • Thanks for the support and good luck to all. I am just thrilled to see that I can get pregnant. Baby dust to all.
    I am 33 years old and my husband is 36. Thanks.
