agnus castus did nothing for me. But I do seem to be in the minority there

I'm not sure it ever really did anything for me either, Laura. But I bought it so I feel like I should use it!

Agnus cactus sent my cycles haywire (as did soy)

I read about spearmint tea about 18 months ago and was really impressed with the reports. I have peppermint tea and a 3 mint mix tea in bags in the cupboard that I drink occasionally when my.digestion is playing up, but as all articles I read stated spearmint tea I didn't think these would do so ordered loose tea from Amazon - so cheap!
http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B007...AC_SX110_SY165

I never got into drinking it though. I'm just not a fan of herbal tea, I really have to be in the mood!

BUT after reading these studies again and posts here I'm going to try again.

GP - how much loose tea do you put per cup?

1 teaspoon of loose leaf spearmint per cup. Sometimes I put two, if I want it strong.

Hi! I hope you don't mind me joining, but once I get the clear from my doctor I want to get in on this experiment :3
I am newly pregnant with my very fist so I don't want to risk messing anything up and having to go through clomid again x( I'm already freaking out over every little thing as it is lol
How did the idea of drinking spearmint tea to lower testosterone come about?
If this actually works then this is a huge break through for us cycsters!! I have high testosterone and it'd be nice to feel normal without meds :3

Babttc123, congrats! As for how it came about, I have linked to one of the numerous medical studies in the disclaimer portion of the first thread post.

MrsMcCurdy, we'd be happy to have you!

Anyone starting the tea who'd like to join us, post your start date, and I'll make you a ticket for the first page!

I'm going to order it today, Where the best place to buy it from ?

Also does it matter that I am taking 2 tablets every morning of agnus cactus?

I've linked a place you can order in the UK in an earlier post. You can also order from Amazon. I suggest loose leaf for the price, but bags are fine too. If you want to try some in bags before getting a large loose leaf order, most health food stores sell spearmint tea in bags. Good luck!
