I'm new to charting and supplementing and trying to wade through the massive amounts of information (and misinformation) out there. I believe I have low progesterone and a short LP. I'm charting, using an OPK, taking supplements and waiting to be 7 dpo to test my progesterone levels. I'm looking for reliable information on the dosages of the various supplements so that I'm not shooting blindly.
Here's what I'm taking:
Alpha Lipoic Acid
Flaxseed Oil (400mg)
Folic Acid (400mcg)
Vit E (1000 IU)
I'm adding EPO (1000 to 2000 mg) from Day1 till O and saving the Flaxseed oil for the rest of the cycle, Vit C (500mg) and Grapeseed extract to increase EWCM
I've only included the doses on the ones that I have reliable info on how much to take.
I've noticed breast tenderness and a decrease in EWCM since I started the supplements a few weeks ago. I have a natural progesterone cream to use from ovulation forward but am waiting till after I've tested my levels to decide whether I should use it or not.
Does anyone have info on how much I should be taking of what? Does the decrease in EW mean that I'm bringing progesterone up too much? I don't want to add supplements to treat symptoms that may be brought on by the other supplements. KWIM? Trying to figure this out......
