Delaying motherhood is a trend that continues to forge ahead among American women. In 2012, there were more than nine times as many first births to women aged 35 years and older than there were four decades earlier.
As fertility gradually declines in the 30s, particularly after age 35, the risk of experiencing difficulty conceiving may increase. In addition to age, other common reasons why women may have problems conceiving include: irregular ovulation cycles and poor egg quality, which may be associated with stress, lifestyle or poor diet.
Multiple research studies report that taking a combination of myo-inositol, which is a naturally occurring substance produced by the human body from glucose – and folic acid, a B vitamin that promotes cell growth – in therapeutic doses – promotes menstrual regularity, ovulatory function and higher quality eggs.
Myo-inositol and folic acid are the ingredients in Pregnitude, which is claimed to be a doctor recommended dietary supplement specially formulated to support reproductive health.
Women should always consult with their doctors before taking any vitamins or supplements.
“Consumers have had very positive responses about Pregnitude, along with many success stories,” said Maria Carell, CEO of Exeltis USA, the U.S. distributor of Pregnitude. “The fact that Pregnitude is generally well tolerated is also reassuring to both women and their doctors,” adds Ms. Carell.
Pregnitude is available without a prescription at nearly 1,200 Walgreens stores across the country and online at Walgreens.com and Pregnitude.com.
