Hello ladies. I am entering this forum cautiously. I have three sons ages 8,7,4. I honestly thought we were done. But I keep having this nagging feeling that we should have another. Itís constantly on my mind. I am 34, dh is 35. So itís kinda now or never for us. Iím still not completely comfortable with ttc. So itís been a half-hearted attempt the last few months. But Iím ready to try using supplements to help this along and really give it a try. For my last pregnancy, I took geritol and soy isoflavones. And something else but I canít remember what. But whatever it was it worked on the first try with it. I think I will do soy days 3-7. Geritol every day. I am not in the same place health wise or physically as I was 5 years ago when I got pregnant for my last son. I take a prenatal vitamin. Any other must haves for being 34 and a worn out mom of three?

Ehhh... day 24 after progesterone only implant removal. I've been using opk's daily in the afternoon, I always get faint lines but nothing exciting.

I'm taking the usual pregnacare and omega oils but I'm thinking I should try some other supplements to see if it will help kick my ovaries into gear 😂 but I don't know anything about it really, what you're all saying above sounds confusing... 😳 can anyone help me with a bit of a regime?

I've conceived naturally twice in 3-4 months ttc. My cycles are usually semi regular with 11 day luteal phases but I've never had any cysts or issues diagnosed and I've had a pelvic scan before.

P.s I know it hasn't been that long since I came off contraception.. patience is very hard... haha

Well my regimen is as follows

First pill of the morning is Baby aspirin- if youíve had previous miscarriages
Which I have, this low dose aspirin helps.
Blood pressure pill
Geritol about 30 minutes later- very potent B vitamins

Breakfast or Lunch -Natures own Prenatal vitamin

COQ10 around 2/3pm

Zinc & Magnesium with dinner

I believe I just got my first positive HPT today at 8/9dpo!!
This is what I did this cycle:


If this is my true BFP.. Here is what I did this cycle. I do have PCOS as well...

I took Soy Isoflavones CD (cycle day) 3-7

Then I started Geritol (tonic) everyday until my BFP (big fat positive (pregnancy test)) (yesterday)

Prenatal vitamin daily (lunch time)

COQ10 daily (around 2-3pm)

Zinc, Magnesium, calcium combo in one vitamin- daily at dinner

Progesterone starting 5dpo

I ate pineapple core 1dpo-5dpo (even though I only ate it on 4dpo and 5dpo)

I ate Brazil nuts after ovulation (helps aid in implantation)

Drank Pom juice during Ovulation period up until BFP (big fat positive (pregnancy test)) (to thicken uterine lining)
