best of luck to you!!!! i think it's wonderful you want to go the non medical way... have you looked into Maca root..? its supposed to help balance hormones and promote natural fertility. i've been looking into it, i've seen a lot of success stories.
Thank you

Maca is on my list. I'm just starting Vitex and royal jelly, seeing if that does anything. I've taken EPO in the past and loved it, so I'm restarting that, as well. I suspect a progesterone issue, and I think by cutting out soy & taking something to promote hormonal balance, it may improve things. I'm wondering if maca is okay to start, as well, or if too many things at once is just a bad idea. What do you think?

I already take a prenatal, extra B vitamins, vitamin D (I'm deficient), and CoQ10.

i'm taking prenatal, wanting to start Pre-seed (read good reviews) and i just ordered my Maca root... i don't think it would be too much. if anything you would be super charged!

I'm not too worried about maca, since it's basically just a food, so I may add it in there for good measure

We've used Pre-Seed since day 1... not sure if it does much of anything, but it helps get the softcup where it needs to go, and it can't really hurt, so... rock on, haha. I hope that you have luck with it!!

Hey Ladies, count me in!! We were due to begin TTC this last cycle, but due to unforeseen circumstances we had to push it back one cycle. Just waiting for AF to show up any day now, and we are back on track! I am not only hoping that 2014 will be our year, but that January 2014 will be our month! (hey, a girl can dream, right?!)

I am taking prenatals and have been on a steady exercise plan, but my husband doesn't want to try taking any vitamins or anything until we try naturally without any help for a few cycles. He hates taking pills, so I compromised and gave him 3 cycles

A couple of the girls on here have recommended pineapple to help with implantation. You cut a whole pineapple, core and all, into 5 equal pieces, and eat one piece each day for 5 days starting on your O day. There is a chemical compound in it called bromelain which is supposed to help with implantation. I plan on using the SMEP method and trying out the pineapple

Welcome everyone! I'm dead chuffed by the response and to know that there are others out there who are also going through this. It's great that we can all help eachother

I've never heard of Maca root. Is it something you take everyday? What is it supposed to do?

I started 120mg of SI today, taking another 120mg tomorrow then 160g for the remaining three days. I think that's how it's done?! Any tips? I also have started taking starflower oil and pre-conception tablets.

That's really interesting about the pineapple. It's one of the few fruits I actually like. My great weakness is chocolate and sugary stuff. I need to cut down but there cravings are driving me nuts. It's so hard

I've not used pre-seed but I've used balance activ which is a similar product. No success so far.

I haven't really had a real cycle yet after coming off of the depo shot. I had my first "period" on the 16th but really it was just brown and light. But FF is saying I ovulated on CD 8 so I hope it is right! Got my first crosshairs today

Fingers crossed for all you ladies! I have heard that pineapple core thing too. Also I have heard to drink pomegranate juice from CD 1 to ovulation as it's supposed to help thicken your lining. I haven't tried these though.

OMG, I am having such a hard time with the sugar. I've been having trouble with my cycle, and I'm sure that all the sugar I eat has been contributing to what I'm thinking is a progesterone issue. Even if it's not, I know all that sugar is awful for me. With the holiday season especially, it's been hard. Hang in there!! We can do it!

Hi ladies, can I join?

I’m CD1 today. I was really praying for a Christmas miracle (along with everyone else on the ttc forums!) but it wasn’t to be! We’ve been TTC #1 for almost a year now and would love for 2014 to be our year.

I haven’t heard of Maca root before…something new to try for January!

Fingers crossed for everyone!
