Hi there! Board-certified obgyn here.

Folvite is folic acid, which is definitely great to take in pregnancy, but won't necessarily help you get pregnant.

There is a fertility supplement called Pregnitude (available online) which has been helpful for women with PCOS.

If you are someone who has a period every month, I would give it 6 months of trying, before consulting an infertility specialist.
If your periods are not regular, I would directly go see an obgyn or infertility specialist.

At your age, we don't want to waste a ton of your time before seeking help, but it is worth giving it a go without meds for 6 months if you have regular periods.

Are there side effects for Pregnitude
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. J, Board Certified OB/GYN replied 1 month ago

Very few of my patients have mentioned any, but some noted irregular bleeding.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
