Agnus castus, evening primrose and flaxseed oil, anyone? Waiting for af to show.


Hello ladies,

after six months of solid TTC, this month i've decided to try agnus castus, evening primrose oil upto ovulation, then switch to flaxseed oil after ov. Anybody else trying any of these for the first time?

Anyone tried them and got any success stories for me?

I'm now 17dpo, and i'm waiting for af to show up, tested today, bfn, i swore I wouldn't, I swore I'd save the test for next month. Do I have to wait for af to show before I take them if i'm definitely not pregnant?

Thank you x

you defo have to wait to start EPO I'm not sure about the other though, sorry.

With AC I've been taking it for a few months months all through my cycle. I really like it although we're been trying for two months now and now bfp yet. There's lots of different opnions about if you should stop it at O. So this cycle I've decided to stop it at O.

Who knows!

Good luck to you x

I started using evening primrose oil and drinking grapefruit juice last month and I just got my BFP today can't swear it was down to that as we started using conceive plus at the same time but I definitely had an increase in CM so it did make a difference!

Ohhh thanks ladies congratulations gypsy! Yes, I heard that if you get preg, it can cause you to miscarry if you take it after ov, so i'm not risking that. Thank you

I think i'm going to wait until af shows before i start it, it can only be a couple of days away now, i mean, i'm 17dpo! It's so rude for af to be late and no

I'm on my 7th month TTC for #1. Was doing nothing until month five. My cycles are crazy.
Was doing prenatals for a long time, got off bc over a year ago. Cycles started going crazy in January. BOO! SOOO then I got prolactin and thyroid checked, they're good. Took provera to get my period twice. Didn't help the horomone crap I obviously have going on. Plus I have a short luteal phase...
Started Agnus Castus last month and had preseed for a couple of months. OPKs one month. Agnus castus upped my O date by 20 days...which I stopped after I got my O confirmation...and also was taking b-complex which lengthened LP anywhere from 1-3 days...FF was confused on O date.

This month I'm trying conceive plus, Agnus castus, EPO and Bcomplex. My period is shorter used to be 7 days now today I'm cd6 and spotting. So that's a plus for me.
I'm also using a CBFM and hubby is on vitamin e and a multivitamin. He's been doing this for a while...I had cd3 blood drawn on saturday and am having an HSG this friday and hubby gets to do SA on next friday. Hoping it ups my O date even more taking 400 mg three times a day. Good luck to you!! I think it gave me headaches the first month. But I feel better overall...if that makes any sense. Preseed did not work for me!

Thank you Gdanemom4now! Glad that it's helped, and thats a big bonus hearing it shortened your af, mine are horrific usually, i was thinking of taking a vit b complex, but i didn't want to overload the first month, so next month if i don't get preg i'll take that too! Thanks for the tip on preseed too, that was going to be my next attempt haha
Good luck to you
