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.
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
I take 1000mg of Vitex/AC everyday of my cycle. I would stop as soon as I get pregnant, but my spotting starts so early, I know I'm not pregnant by about 10 dpo at the latest. every month, I feel the same, without any kind of pregnancy symptoms.

I read about maca on bnb. It's some sort of food found in Peru, but available to the rest of the world through capsules (and possibly drops). Young girls are given it very early on, and it is supposed to help with hormonal balance, and it increases sperm count. Somewhere on bnb, a member posted information about it (she is from Peru), and she gave it to her oh to help with his sperm count. And it helped him drastically!

I'm really hoping that my doctor will give me progesterone. I am ovulating today (never had so much cm in my entire life!), so I am going to ask my doc on Monday to give me progesterone, or at least test my levels next saturday (7 dpo). I've had enough of my LP issues - and I just know that this spotting issue will not let me get pregnant. How could I when my uterine lining is already starting to shed before implantation could happen???

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.
That's managable!! It makes sense that your levels can go up and down. I've even noticed that in my temps, it can be pretty up and down during my LP.

But, since you have been on it, your spotting has gone away and your LP has increased?

cantwaitforu - the type of spotting you described is exactly what i have! I didn't go into to details with the doctor, but he just said spotting is normal. I'm worried though as it seems to start 4-8 dpo so i don't think that can be good?? Got my appts for ultrasounds etc booked for April. Does anyone know if spotting automatically means you are not pregnant each month?? Or can you still get the usual spotting and then be pregnant?

Totally agree with you, I wouldn't have thought it was possible, unless you have a reasonable lp and manage implantation before the spotting starts, but then brown blood is old blood, so I imagine the shedding starts at least a couple of days before the spotting actually starts! How long have you been taking the AC for, has it made any difference at all? It's done wonders for my ovulation, am hoping this month with taking it throughout the cycle it will improve the spotting... I've seen the thread on Maca, it sounds great, and helps the Might give it a whirl. This TTC lark will end up costing me a fortune! x

This is my third cycle taking AC. Depending on how it goes, I may take myself off of it. last month's cycle was too short and the spotting started at it's earliest. I was also very stressed, so that may have been a factor.

So far for this cycle, I ovulated today (thought it was happening yesterday, but got abundant EWCM and some spotting with o pains this evening), which is a little later than my average.

I finally got my doctor to admit that it is not normal last time I saw him. Also, years ago when I was seeing an OBGYN for this, he told me to come back to see him if I had any problems getting pg. I'm hoping I will be referred back to him, and hope that he knows more about this. If he doesn't, I am going to new doctors and getting new opinions. I'm getting an ultrasound tomorrow and am hoping to get my CD21 bloodtests done next weekend, so I'll be sure to write back and let you know what happened.

I wonder about the spotting. Last month happened so early. It's hard to say as I was very stressed out, but the spotting began on 5dpo, and was very different from my usual spotting - the colour, consistency and the frequency. It would happen in the morning one day, then I wouldn't see it again until the evening. I do know that if your uterine lining is not at a certain thickness, implantation won't happen.

To start, that is all I want right now! I would of course be happier with a BFP, but if I can get a cycle without spotting and a normal LP, that is a very important battle to win. Thanks for the info!!!!
