I found this website and was amazed at how much I could be helping myself with what I eat and thought I would share it with y'all.
Flaxseed oil
Flaxseed oil may improve uterine function and in so doing treat fertility problems.
Leading Food Sources of flaxseed oil: Oil, flaxseed

folic acid
Consuming adequate folate is important for a healthy reproductive system. Folate is also essential for fetal development because it ensures normal cell replication and contributes to the formation of DNA and RNA.
Leading Food Sources of folic acid: Asparagus, Beets, Broccoli, Spinach, Avocados, Peas, fresh, Lentils, Chick-peas, Beans, dried, Soybeans, Oranges, Turkey, Brussels sprouts, Bok choy, Cabbage, Savoy

Adequate intake of iron is also beneficial as some studies indicate that conception is prevented in women with depleted iron stores.

vitamin B12
Foods high in vitamin B12 should be an important part of your daily diet, because pernicious anemia, which is associated with vitamin B12 deficiency, is linked to infertility.

tj, if you're going to add B12 in any form, be sure to take a B-50 Complex vitamin. I take 5mg of Folic Acid (400mcg is not enough for the infertile), B-50 and extra 100mg of B6 (b6 helps the pms and moodyness), prenatal complex with extra calcium and 2000mg C (aids in regularity) A great place for vitamins is they have great deals like buy 2 get 3, etc. Granted in Folic Acid I have to take 6 pills cause they only sell 800mcg. I see an Alt Med doc who actually prescribes vitamins.
