Brief Answer:
Hello dear. You can use them.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear.
Welcome to HCM.

I have gone through the details provided. Saw palmetto sometimes helps in urogenital diseases and helps in shrinking the prostate gland and increases urine flow. You can use it.
However, there is no good evidence about red clover.
You must drink lots of fluids to keep adequate urine flow.

Thanks and regards
