I take 2 x 1000mg EPO daily from AF to O. Not sure how much info you already know about EPO but you take it from AF to O as it can cause uterine contractions. You can take up you 3000mg daily but a high dose can delay O.
Ive taken it for 2 cycles now & have noticed an increase in CM. Also if you take anti-histamines that can dry up CM just to let you know.
Thanks Dee, I want to take the EPO to help with EWCM as i dont have any at the moment. I don't want to delay ov at all so dont want to be taking too much... i have capsules that are 520mg how many do you think i should be taking?
I've recently started taking AC to help regulate my cycles (from CD1 to ov) and also B50 complex all the way through to help lengthen LP (normally 11days) and have been taking pregnacare all the way through for quite some time now.
I think it is alright to be taking all these at once!?
I started using OPKs last month for the first time (cheapy ones from ebay!) & I didnt ovulate until CD18. I had kidney stones so was on painkillers that can delay O so Im hoping that it was my painkillers & not the EPO. Im on CD11 today & so far have had 2 -ves so if I dont O til late again then I might reduce my dose of EPO. 1500mg seems to be the most suggested dose if you google EPO so I might get the lower dose capsules next time.
A lot of people temp but I work shifts so I would find it difficult (and likely forget) to take my temp at the same time daily but it seems to be quite popular anyway. Have you been ttc for long?
Evening Primrose Oil or EPO should only be taken from menstruation to ovulation. This is because Evening Primrose Oil or EPO can cause uterine contractions in pregnancy. The dosage taken should be 1500mg to 3000mg per day. I take the 3000mg, along with folic acid and prenatal vitamins
Hmm, I have taken 2x520, I wonder if that will be enough... i think i might take the lower dose to start with so as not to risk putting back OV and if i don't notice any difference this month then take 3 x 520 next month.
I've been trying since December following a MMC back in November, we caught first time trying back in August and i'm getting increasingly frustrated at why it's taking so long now. I only started taking the AC and B50 last month but as i wasn't successful gonna try the EPO aswell.
