I was recently introduced to a new fertility product…
Thanks to “Joshua” (who recently replied to one of my blog posts), I was introduced to a fertility product I have never heard of. It is called BeeFertile. Here is a link to their website: http://www.beefertile.com/
I have read probably hundreds of blogs (via the Stirrup Queens Blogroll, which I highly recommend for couples facing infertility: http://www.stirrup-queens.com/a-whole-lot-of-blogging-brought-to-you-sorted-and-filed/). Never once have I heard of BeeFertile. When Joshua mentioned it in his reply to my post, I had to check it out. It really does sound too good to be true [2g2bt]. My experience with things that are 2g2bt is that they usually are, so I am incredibly skeptical!
Call me crazy, but I am slowly gathering a list of pro’s & con’s and I am desperately seeking testimonials, opinions, and advice about using this BeeFertile supplement. For those of you who are too lazy to take a look at the website, I will give you a quick overview (that definitely will NOT do the website justice.)
BeeFertile is an all-natural supplement (therefore not tested by the FDA). The website says there are no known side effects, it is “all natural”, and it is proven effective for increasing fertility in both men and women. Some other “facts”:
- Different formulas for men and women
- It combines over 30 natural ingredients in a pill for men and women. Uses natural vitamins and minerals (often found in prenatal vitamins and other health supplements), in addition to some “bee” additives (pollen and Royal Jelly).
- Requires both the male and the female to take pills 4x/day and 1tsp of Royal Jelly every day.
- “Hive Naturals” is the parent company, a family company, started with a health foods store in Georgia.
- The website DOES have a guarantee (of sorts) and a physical address, and the site was the first thing that popped up when I searched for BeeFertile on Google (speaks for legitimacy, right?)
- They provided me with a “Doctor’s Fact Kit” to take with me to the doctor and recommend repeatedly on the website to consult a doctor before starting the BeeFertile program.
- All of the testimonials boast pregnancy within 9 months, many less than 6 months, and most less than 3 months (for couples with no obvious reasons for infertility).
The website boasts:
Each BeeFertile ingredient has been carefully selected to target each area of the reproductive system and provide an optimal combination of vitamins, minerals, and bee products to support and facilitate a healthy reproductive system.
Careful research and study of published medical research, combined with the assistance of Doctors and natural supplement experts, formed the products that are found in the BeeFertile Kits.
The BeeFertile kit was designed to give you a 3 month supply of both the supplement and Royal Jelly formula. We recommend that you finish the 3 month program supplied in the kit for maximum results. Herbs and vitamins, when taken over time, can help to benefit and maximize your reproductive potential. It can take 3 months or more for your body to receive the full benefits of the BeeFertile program. For men, it can take at least 3 months or more to see significant results in sperm count, motility and overall sperm health.
We recommend that you use the BeeFertile kit at least 6 months, which is 2 cycles of the BeeFertile kit, or until successful conception is achieved. BeeFertile can also be used by those with the intention of achieving a healthy reproductive system, in which case, no minimum or maximum is recommended.
My questions are…
- Is it dangerous to try this? Will it hurt me, M, or my chances for conceiving?
- Is it worth it to spend $250.. $500… or even $750 to try this for 3…6…9 months?
- Should we get an SA first? How much should we expect to spend for an SA?
- My uncle threw a fit when he heard we were thinking about trying this. He tried to say they weren’t a legitimate company and said they didn’t have a physical address. They do have an address (which I intend to look up on Google Maps just to prove my uncle wrong), and they do seem to be a legitimate company.
- Has anyone else (aside from Joshua – no offense) heard of BeeFertile, tried it, or know someone who’s tried it? I’d love to hear from someone who follows my blog or whose blogs I read.
Thanks a heap! -C.C.
PS– I’m 99.99% sure I’m going to start a new cycle on Monday. I can just feel it. ='(
