That's not a bad thing, Red. It's okay! One study they did only lasted 5 days, and they still saw some improvement in testosterone levels. So just keep at it. Even if you already ovulated, it can still help you.

Hi all, popping in again.
Had a rough few days. My most recent hcg from Monday came back low at 7 and I woke up this morning with the inevitable miscarriage that was coming.
Trying to push this in the back of my mind and find something to distract myself, so I figure it would be a good time to give this a try.
I read a little ways back that spearmint is usually moxed with Green tea. Is there another store bought tea that doesn't contain green tea?
I want to keep my folic acid up and green tea inhibits the effects of folic acid, so it is bad for ttc and early pregnancy. It's been a b**** since I quit drinking it because I have already gotten sick 3 times x(
I guess maybe my immune system grew dependant on the green tea..

I'm sorry hon. I've had two losses, so I've been there. It really sucks!

Yes, you can find plain, pure spearmint tea in most health food stores. I know for a fact Whole Foods sells it, if you have one near you.

It's fine... I mean, yeah it really sucks and I did cry about it, but it's not like I can change it so I am trying to just occupy myself with other things. I am going to work on losing some more weight when this is all over with and see if that helps for the next time and maybe I won't need clomid with a combo of weight loss and spearmint
That would be a blessing in itself!!

How many ladies have already started to have regular cycles just from this?

I am currently on 1000 mg of metformin e.r. and that had me at a 33 day cycle. Clomid helped me to ovulate and brought my cycle closer to 30 days.
It would be nice to be at a 28 day cycle and know when to expect O lol
