Does Pregnacare and Ovulet the medication aid pregnancy?

I am 41 year old and been trying for 3 years for a baby. Am now on Pregnacare and will start taking Ovulet after the 5th day of my menstruation which has began yesterday as directed by Doc. Are these right medications? My weight is 74kgs and 170cm height.

Hi,
Thanks for posting in HCM.
I understand your concern.
Pregnacare is a scientifically developed formulation of 19 important vitamins and minerals. It is recommended before conception to build up the stores of nutrients such as iron in women who are trying for a baby as good nutrition is important to help prepare a woman's body for the additional demands placed on it during pregnancy.
Also, certain nutrients, like folic acid, vitamin B12 and zinc are also of particular importance from the very first moment of conception.
Ovulet contains clomiphene, which belongs to a group of medicines called ovulation stimulants, which stimulate the release of eggs from the ovary.
Hence, these medications are proper ones prescribed, which would aid in conception. Kindly follow what your doctor has advised.
However, along with it, it would be better to go for follicular study to see for release of eggs, and time the intercourse accordingly, which will further improve the chances of conception.
Hope the information provided would be helpful.
All the best.
