Getting pregnant can sometimes take longer than expected.
Some are lucky and the journey is straightforward. While others deal with fertility issues which are a lot more common than you think. Though the road towards parenthood can sometimes be a huge challenge, it’s important to know that you’re not alone in those challenges.
While trying to conceive, couples should maintain a healthy and well-balanced diet. The ladies should also take pre-pregnancy supplements to provide her body with the essential nutrients it needs to help with a healthy pregnancy. One such supplement is Blackmores Conceive Well™ Gold. It has been formulated with a combination of nutritional oils and vitamins specially chosen to prepare the body for conception.

I Love Children recently spoke to 2 individuals who have tried and tested Blackmores Conceive Well™ Gold and here is what they have to say.
- Mrs Yeow, started on supplement in Nov 2019, conceived baby Mar 2020.
- Ferlicia, started on supplement in Nov 2019, conceived baby number 2 in May 2020.
What motivated you to try the product?
Blackmores Conceive Well™ Gold supplies nutrients for healthy ovulation, it also supports a healthy female reproductive system and provides powerful antioxidants involved in normal conception.
Mrs Yeow: My husband and I were trying for a baby since June 2019. But due to my irregular periods, we found it difficult to track my fertile days. We tried the product for a couple of weeks in the hopes of improving our chances and regulating my period.
After a couple of weeks, we managed to conceive in Dec 2019. Unfortunately, it ended with an early miscarriage. Our gynae informed us that miscarriages are quite common in the first trimester and encouraged us to try again after 2 months. Thankfully, we quickly conceived again in March 2020 and delivered a beautiful baby girl in November 2020.
Ferlicia: We wanted to try for baby number 2 and I knew the process could take a while. I was keen to try something which may assist with conception.
Were there any concerns on taking the product?
If you are on any blood-thinning medication, this product should not be taken without medical advice.
Mrs Yeow: I had no concerns at all as my best friend who conceived before me was taking Blackmores Conceive Well™ Gold and they delivered a healthy baby girl in June 2020. I also read up many positive reviews on the product and I knew it is a reputable brand!
Ferlicia: The only concern I had was, if there were any ingredients that might cause allergies and if I should continue taking it when I had my period.
Did you experience any difference after taking the product?
Mrs Yeow: I felt a boost in energy and my health. It could also be the excitement I felt that we were taking steps to improve our chances of conceiving.
Ferlicia: I felt energised after a week on the product.
What is your overall review of the product?
Direction for use: Take 1 capsule and 1 tablet daily with a meal, or as professionally prescribed. Ideally taken up to six months before conception.
Mrs Yeow: It was okay, easy for me to take as I’ve no issue with taking pills. However, it might be a tad difficult for others who have trouble swallowing pills.
Ferlicia: It was easy to take, just like a daily vitamin. No strong smell/taste. Would have been great if there were more instructions on whether these supplements can be taken during menstruation.
In conclusion, it is important for couples to know that they are not alone in their journey and help is always available. There are many avenues and possibilities which can be explored and one such avenue would be to try reliable supplements like Blackmores Conceive Well™ Gold.
