After taking fertility supplements, I've STOPPED ovulating???

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm on my third month TTC. I'm 32, and haven't had EWCM for over a year. I use to have loads, and I'm not sure why it suddenly all disappeared, unless it's just because I turned 30. I was trained as a teacher in the Billings Ovulation Method, so I know about CM, ovulation timing, etc. To increase my CM, I started taking spirulina and 2000 mg of Maca on day one of my cycle. I also started taking a multivitamin that contains a bunch of fertility herbs. For previous cycles, I would have a few days of watery cm, and I could feel that I was O. Now, I'm on day 15 (my usual O day) and I'm so totally and completely dry that it's painful. I'm also using O predictor strips, and of course they aren't picking anything up. Should I just give up the supplements? Has anyone else BTDT?

It could just be that you're going to O later in your cycle than you're used to.

Drink lots of water and see where that leads you!

OP here...I've been mysteriously locked out of my MommaMoo account.

Ahhh, yes...just wait and see if I O later. Patience! I guess I'm still short on that, despite my having a DS that tests mine on a regular basis. I guess I was just expecting to have a few days of FM before ovulating, and that should have started by now. I suppose I should just make some RRL tea and chill out.

Hi VioletMommy,

While Spriulina and Maca may be some choices for increasing CM I am not sure they are the best. Have you tried or learned about-

-Evening Primrose Oil
-Green Tea
-L-Arginine
-Water based lubricant?

All of these things may help you.

You can learn more here: http://natural-fertility-info.com/5-...al-mucous.html

I hope this helps a bit.
