Thank you Rainbow32. I have taken soy this month on days 3-7 but its still too early whether they have brought my ov date forward. I went to see my doctor about 5 months ago who didn't seem very concerned about the spotting and was pretty useless TBH. I think I may try another doctor if soy doesn't work and get my progesterone levels checked out. Did your doctor prescribe the progesterone pessaries?

MrsPTTC, I checked the H&B site a bit more properly and they also have B-50, which has 50mg of B6 and 50ug of B12, so maybe that one would be better, since you can probably combine it with Pregnacare without overdosing anything. It still has Folic Acid, but it would make it 800mg a day, which is still within the range. I'm still waiting to O this cycle, which hopefully happens within a few days and I'm gonna take Agnus Castus until O is confirmed, so probably until 4DPO. I also figured implantation wouldn't happen until then anyway, and I want maximum effect.

Hi Soili, I have made a decision, I'm not gonna bother with the B vits yet, as the AC should do the same thing. (I came across an article before for low progesterone and it suggested AC, no mention of B6!) However, I think, not 100% yet, I'm going to continue taking the AC until about 10 dpo. I'm pretty sure the fetus doesnt get anything from the mother at first anyway and I've got early IC tests which I can use daily until I get a BFP. The way I'm looking at it is the AC does 2 jobs, brings ovulation forward & helps the spotting, if I only take it til ovulation then I would imagine it'll take longer to do the 2nd job, though I might be wrong. Can you take B vits after ovulation? I found this web page really helpful about the AC http://www.early-pregnancy-tests.com/vitex.html x

MrsPTTC, sounds like a good plan! I too have those cheapie ultra-early tests, but I wanted to stay clear from testing until 15DPO this month. I kinda wish I had O'ed already, because we were so good with BD'ing, but I still didn't get an absolute definitive positive OPK (I had two that I think were positive, but they weren't as dark as some I had in previous cycles). And the temps are still jumping up and down.

I also found some articles saying to stop taking AC when you find out you're pregnant. I might consider that if my O comes late this month.

I've been on AC for going on my third cycle, along with a B100 complex. the first month, I noticed results right away - I got a 12 day LP, and only started spotting on 10 dpo. The next month, I got a 10 day LP, and started spotting on 5 dpo. Both months I ovulated on CD 13 and CD 14 respectively. This month, it's CD 14 today, and my temp hasn't risen - hoping to see that tomorrow morning.

Has anyone tried Maca? I bought some and am taking it kinda sporadically. I am tired of taking all these pills!

Rainbow32, what kind of progesterone are you on? Have you noticed any side effects? My friend who was on progesterone said she grew extra hair and became a little crazy.

You got any pics of your ov results hun? When I first took AC last month, (well 2 mths ago now as officially am on month 3 from today) I got the clearest positive I've ever had. Before, sometimes I was getting half a line dark (according to peeonastick.com some manufacturers consider this a positive as long as it's at least half of the line.) How long you been on the AC for? Sorry if you've already said. x

Dear me cantwaitforu, it sounds like month 2 it made it much worse! Hope you get your temp rise tomorrow and the lp is better this month. Are you stopping at ovulation like most other ladies? What is Maca, I've not heard of it? x

MrsPTTC, I've been taking AC only for 4 days now, started as soon it arrived in mail. The last time I got a positive OPK was in July (I stopped using them since then) and it was very obviously positive (I was actually at doctor's appointment that day and she told me I'm O'ing, so I took the test when I got home and the test line was darker than control one almost right away). I'm using same brand this month (cheapie ones from eBay) and in the last days it has gotten a lot darker, but nothing near the one I got in August. Once it dries, the test line gets 1/3 thin, but same intensity as the control line. So I'm not sure it's considered positive. I'm waiting for my temps to react to it, to make sure. But somehow I don't think it's time yet.

I'm sure as long as it's as dark as the control line then it's a positive, I've only had 1 month where it was much darker than the control line, and that was the first month of the AC x

im on cyclogest (prescribed by consultant who did my lap and dye)

my progesterone levels were fine on the blood test but consultant thinks they must rise and fall during that LP, so fine on day 21 test but maybe day 22 would be different.

cyclogest side effects - no hair!! but i have been feeling a bit sick the last few days and i have been having hot flashes at night - nothing too bad.
