DH and I are 26, ttc #1 and I'm on cd 4 today -- this month my cycle days follow the calendar dates! I'm looking for some buddies to share the journey to that long-awaited BFP I used to chart but have decided to ditch it all for the next few cycles and use nothing but OPKs and pre~seed (just to try something new). Hope you all get your BFPs soon!!
Hey Jessica! The last few days, I've been finding a lot of Canadians on here lol. Nice! I'm in ON, where are you? DH and I have been ttc 15 months -- this current cycle will be #16. And I was charting (including temps) for most of that time, except for this month. I've decided to give it a break and just use OPKs, preseed and this cycle I'm going to try the SMEP. I started charting after reading Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Weschler and learned a LOT about my cycles from that book. I would recommend reading it for those who haven't. Will you be trying anything new this cycle, Jessica28?
I am in Atlantic Canada - Newfoundland to be exact. Haven't found many Canadians on here just yet....I only joined in early March! We have only been ttc since October 2011 and our first attempt resulted in pregnany (just getting off the pill) but ended in m/c. My family doctor advised that we go back on bcp for 3 months before ttc again but the doctor who performed my d & c told us we didn't have to wait. I didn't go back on the pill but kind of played it safe so last cycle was our first of actually trying since the m/c.
I am still going to temp and use opks (cheapies from early-pregnancy-tests, so I can do more than one a day) and SMEP of course but I do have some Fertile CM tablets coming so I hope to see an increase in my CM....I never notice any EWCM.
RCAFWife... I'm doing well too. Been googling again to see what else I can do to help!
Read about Honey & Cinnamon, Grapefruit juice, and primrose oil. Kept forgetting grapefruit juice whenever I go grocery shopping!
I'm on cd12 but I see our tickers are similar! 6 days til O!!
Saw this from a couple of forums:
INFERTILITY: Yunani and Ayurvedic Medicine have been using honey for thousands of years to strengthen the semen of men. If importent men regularly take two tablespoon of honey before going to sleep, their problem will be solved.
In China, Japan and Far-East countries, women, who do not conceive and need to strengthen the uterus, have been taking cinnamon powder for centuries. Women who cannot conceive may take a pinch of cinnamon powder in half teaspoon of honey and apply it on the gums frequently throughout the day, so that it slowly mixes with the saliva and enters the body.
- restores and rejuvenates tired or ageing sex glands in males and females. It contains natural hormonal substances that stimulate and nourish the reproductive system.
- increases sexual stamina and endurance.
- improves sexual dysfunction caused by prostate disorders.
- stimulates ovarian function and increases the biological value of eggs.
- alleviates symptoms of pms.
Figured making a drink with a pinch of cinnamon with honey each day is easy to do plus.. it's all natural and figure it's nothing harmful
