Yeah we are lucky we get the NHS but they wouldn't pay for acupuncture we would have to pay for it ourselves, it's something I've never really thought about but I don't think I'd like it.
I'm not sure what it does either Spencer lol is it to relax you? All the needles put me off lol

Here is a really basic breakdown of what it can do...http://americanpregnancy.org/infertility/acupuncture/
there is way more research on this than is presented in the article. I have two friends who really liked it and they both had successful pregnancies (well one friend and a friend of a friend). They also said that it was amazingly relaxing, believe it or not, and improved their overall mental health during the ttc process and during pregnancy. I'm totally into alternative medicine anyway, so it's right up my alley My first appointment is on Tuesday so I will let you know how it goes.

Ltweety, that's awesome, sounds amazing!
I have heard great things about it too, but have never gotten to do it. I'm going today for a foot reflexology thing...more in my price range lol....hopefully it works too

So, cycle day 8 for me and some strange things going on. *TMI warning*
Had my regular (very heavy) AF for 3 days - but it did start in the evening, which is abnormal, then slight spotting on cd 4 (not normal for me, but ok), nothing on cd 5 and 6...but suddenly on cd 7 I had major "spotting" - actually what I'd call light AF - and it continued this AM...accompanied with cramps Its too much to be spotting, it's actual AF style...this has never happened to me, so I am feeling like this cycle is a bust already, and I haven't even O'd yet!

Any ideas on what could cause this??? Low estrogen/too much estrogen/any supplements???

I've been on black cohosh in the follicular phase for 3 months now, this hasn't happened before now though. I've also been taking Royal jelly & super B complex (extra b vitamins). I haven't taken anything today, and think I'm going to stop everything and see what happens.
Oh, I did take Maca this cycle, starting cd 1...that's the only new thing....I bet that's it! Has anyone heard anything about Maca???

Maca is pretty widely used. I use it in my Vitanica Pregnancy Prep supplement and have never noticed adverse effects. I can't really find anything that stands out in the known side effects on the web either. Possible complications to those who are estrogen sensitive or have fibroids, uterine complications, endometriosis...

Right ladies I need your help, why do my Opk never go positive? I started cd 5 twice a day then from cd 8 x3 a day. I'm now on cd 11 and my lines have now vanished. They were getting darker until today....can't post a pic my iPad is dumb

Hmm I'm not sure maybe you have a short lh surge? But if of thought you would catch it testing 3 times a day. Just keep testing and see what happens. My opks have no lines on either lol
