Hi all,

Setting up a new thread to hopefully get some tips on what to eat / drink to increase fertility. May well be old wives tales bur cant hurt, right?

I'm drinking a glass of grapefruit juice (150ml ish, not from concentrate) from CD 8 until ovulation. Apparently it increases CM. Started this cycle and began to actually see EWCM for the first time!

Also heard that pineapple (inc core ) helps wit implantation. Divide a pineapple into 5 slices and eat a slice a day from ovulation.

Also heard cucumbers are good for men's fertility.

May well be a load of codswallop but no harm in trying 'eh!

We conceived very quickly and I'd been eating Brazil nuts, evening primrose oil, taking pregnancy vitamins and using conceive plus lube. We may have just been lucky though but I'd recommend them by proxy! I also drank quite a lot of champagne the day before my bfp (had got a BFN beforehand) which obviously helped confused. Xxx

Flapper that's enough convincing for me, sod Morrisons prosecco, champagne it is grin

I hadn't heard about grapefruit juice, suppose no harm in trying!
