I've just been using bagged versions. Pukka Three mint, Clipper After Dinner mint and Dragonfly Moroccan Mint :-)

Tesco does sell tea with mint in it. I believe peppermint works as well, but most of the studies have been spearmint. I drink only straight spearmint tea, with nothing else in it (except a little sugar).

I order it online. Specifically, I ordered my current stash from here. But I think I'll order from somewhere in the US for my next shipment, because the orders take too long to ship from Ontario to Kentucky. In the UK, you can order from here. But I'm sure there are several places. That's just the first that came up when I searched.


In my experience, loose leaf is a lot cheaper for quantity than bags. 100g (3.5oz) lasts me almost a month having 2-5 cups a day.

I think im going to get pure spearmint after payday. I worry about the caffeine in green tea, which is mostly what spearmint is mixed with in the supermarket teas. I limit to two cups a day.

I hated the side effects from Clomid. Plus, it didn't always make me ovulate, so it was a month of hot flashes for nothing.

Even if I get pregnant, I will continue taking the tea. It's safe during pregnancy, and high testosterone is linked to higher rates of miscarriage. I've had two losses, and I want a rainbow!

This worked WAY better, WAY faster for me than agnus castus (though I do take that every so often still). It definitely won't hurt to add in!
