What to do in the meantime?

Postby OnAMission » Tue Jun 16, 2015 7:37 am

DD turned 1 on June 10th. DH and I continue to talk about expanding our family. We had to failed cycles of Clomid and Clomid+Soy Iso.

I'm going to start temping today or tomorrow. I think I only have one cycle worth of 100mg clomid left. I'm going to cut the Clomid in half because I had no response to the 100mg. If 50mg doesn't work either, we will move on to Femara.

My cycles are very long. usually 42-45+ days. What can help regulate? I already have 80mg Black Cohosh. Should I purchase Maca too? I need to be regular soon. I'm hoping to try by December.

Also, this is a surprise for DH. He said he wants to TTCT asap, but I convin him that we should wait. He protested (LOL). So, in order to surprise him I need to take supplements instead of prescription meds.

I'm going to research and brainstorm on my own, but if you've had success or have a link to a success story, please share. I need to start trying things soon to have a protocol by December.

Also, if you had poor response to clomid, you might try adding black cohosh to your regimen. Black cohosh can help prevent some of the side effects of clomid that can negatively affect the chances of conception, like poor cervical mucous quality. You can read the full rundown and info on the studies here: http://ttctwins101.com/blackcohoshclomid.html

If you end up using it, you can order it here and use TTCTWINS15 as a discount code! http://www.cassavashop.com/organic-black-cohosh/

I know this thread is a month old, but I just wanted to say hi.

My DD turned 1 on June 10th, too! You're planning to try a few months earlier than me, though.

I've heard from several people that black cohosh helped regulate their cycles. Also I've heard of something called moon tea some women drink, or acupuncture.
