I take red raspberry leaf capsuals myself. I hate tea too so I figured this would be the easiest alternative
Yes, I dont take dong quai throughout luteal phase. I drink raspberry tea every day.

Sorry for my typo above, it’s actually spelled *dong quai*. In Chinese medicine, dong quai is considered the "female ginseng" because of its balancing effect on the female hormonal system. A nourishing tonic and fertility herb, Dong Quai helps to support normal blood flow to the reproductive system and aids the body in producing and nourishing the blood. It is used in nearly all Chinese herbal 'blood-building' formulas.

It’s prescribed for the reasons below:

• Support normal menstrual cycle*
• Encourage a healthy menstrual flow*
• Aid with occasional menstrual irregularities*
• Encourage menstruation to begin*
• Aid with occasional cramping and PMS during menstruation*
• Support the body in building healthy blood*
• Encourages circulation to the reproductive system*
• Helps to warm a 'cold uterus'

My reasons for taking it are to encourage circulation to the reproductive system, support the body in building healthy blood, encourage a healthy and normal menstrual flow. I brew it along with the raspberry tea.

I H A T E tea, and the taste of tea in general, but here I am, brewing the hard core stuff myself, and drinking it every night. YUCK! sigh.........the things we do for a baby, right?
Oh dong quai now i know what you talking about LOL So how long have you been drinking these teas and have you seen any changes in your cycle?
I've been drinking regular 'women's cycle' tea blends from Whole Foods for the last 2months, only thing I've noticed is that when af shows, she shows as red spotting for the first few hours/day. Before taking the tea, af would start out as brown spotting. Now, brown spotting is the last day of af. So I guess that's progress!

I'm hoping by buying the 'real stuff' and brewing it myself, I will get more benefits from it....

GL to you! I normally o between CD12-16, I'm hoping that the soy doesnt make my o happen too late...I'm aware that's a possibility, but thought I'd take the chance.

I do think that next month, instead of taking soy CD5-9, I'll switch it up to CD3-7.

Urgh the lines on my opks are getting lighter and lighter. I know I should obsess over this since I usually have a later O (around cd19) but I was really hoping the soy would help me O sooner.

It means the ovulation hormone the opks detect is barely there
