So I know that this thread hasn't been very active lately but I am hoping that some of you are still out there lurking. Today we start insemination for this cycle and we are plugging right along. We had a serious conversation about the next steps in our ttc journey. DW told me that she is still feeling "invaded"by the loss of her tube. She doesn't want to move into medical intervention or iui. She is willing to try natural fertility enhancements starting next cycle but there are just too any choices. I would appreciate anything y'all can suggest.
I use coq10, royal jelly, l-arginine, vit D and before O drink red raspberry leaf tea. Oh also prenatals and prenantal DHA. It depends on what you are trying to accomplish. I take supps that help the quality of my eggs and my lining. I'm in my mid 30s and I've been convinced all my years as a smoker have hurt the quality of my eggs, so that's why I chose those particular ones. Other supps have effects on your cycle, example vit Bs extend your luteal phase and boost progesterone. I don't know much about other supps other than the ones I take.
I take fertilaid, fertileCM, fertilitea, maca root, spirulina, B6, and royal jelly. I've also been eating healthier. In one month of all this my progesterone went from 2.4 to 6.9, my chart looks better, my O wasn't as delayed, and my lp went from 10/11 days to 12. So, I'm thinking all those things are making a difference. Good luck!
This thread has been awful quiet lately. I truly hope that everyone is doing fine. Baby to everyone trying
AFM- Today makes us 11 weeks 5 days and we are still cautiously awaiting the day that we are finally out of this first trimester. Only a little while left thankfully!! The last scan we had was at 10 weeks, but we go for another appointment on Tuesday. We will be 12 weeks 2 days, so hopefully we will get a nice clear picture of our LO. I am most excited to hear the heartbeat again. Hopefully I can control my emotions this time, since at the first appointment, once I heard the heart beat I so uncontrollably, I could barely breathe. I think it was truly just an emotional release of everything that I had been holding in since the last of out three losses. Hearing that little pitter patter put me on
