NO NO NO NO NO. i will say it again NO! I know we all think aloe vera is this great healing plant, but its a purgative chemical, which means it expells things that are not normally in the body, aka a growing fetus. its actually believed that aloe vera can help promote aborting the fetus and bringing on menstration...and as we all know, in ttc, that is teh LAST thing you want happen!!!

someone suggested it to me for RSD, I tried looking for aloe vera and fertility on google last night but couldn't find anything - might have been cause I was more than a little tipsy though! All I could find was literature on using it the week after AF til OV and nothing more. Thanks huni
