Thanks Lori. So you're currently using it? I have thought about it but someone else posted that it is only safe to use in a threatened MC, not a natural healthy pregnancy (although I'm currently in neither position).

When we conceived #1 we did so within the first month, but I want to do as much as possible naturally to help getting PG. I"m drinking Red Raspberry Leaf tea and taking a prental, but that's about it. I'm wondering if I should give it a try? I posted this same question in natural mothering, but one of the posters stated it could be dangerous. Maybe I'm being too cautious?

False Unicorn (Chamaelirium luteum) - Historically used for its adaptogenic effect on the ovaries, which produce reproductive hormones necessary for optimum fertility. False unicorn is often used in miscarriage prevention formulas as well for this same reason. A recent 1996 study indicated the herb may stimulate production of hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin).

True Unicorn root (Aletris farinosa) - This herb is primarily used in herbal therapy as a digestive stimulant and tonic. Digestive stimulants are necessary and beneficial for fertility due to the need to support digestion of other herbs taken and food for maximum nutrient absorption.

I've used False Unicorn root as I had a huge cyst and turned to natural remedies first (I ended up with surgery). I'm now using it for fertility along with Vitex, Evening Primrose Oil, PABA, Probios (Bee Pollen) and a Prenatal.

Hugs & good luck,
Lori

Hi Ladies: I have been doing a little reading about TTC and notice when I Google info on it True and False Unicorn Root keep appearing. Can the experts out there please let me know what both of these are all about? Thanks!
