No scientific studies have confirmed its effectiveness. Some proponents say it can help a woman conceive by increasing her cervical mucus and making it more stretchable and slippery. This would enable sperm to move more quickly through the uterus and into the fallopian tube. If interested in trying this supplement, take 1,500 to 3,000 mg per day only from the first day of your menstrual cycle. Don't take it during ovulation. It won't work right away; it can take at least two months to build up in the system.
