I have been trying to conceive for some months now and getting really anxious. I have an irregular period and do not ovulate every month. Some months my menstrual blood is not the normal reddish color, it could be brown blood clots that comes like a thread and sometimes mixed with vaginal mucus such that in such a month, I do not need to use sanitary pads. I do not know if it means that in such a month I did not ovulate at all. I really want a baby now and do not know what to do. I have read some threads on this site that said soy isoflavones can induce ovulation but because of the adverse effects, my husband would not agree to me taking it. So we settled for me taking vitex instead. I have ordered for one now.
I have quite a number of questions:
1. This brown blood clots that comes in some months, is that okay? I mean I hope I am not the only one that has experienced such and does it mean that in such a month I have not ovulated.
2. I read that vitex takes a while to work and helps to regulate menstrual cycle. Would it also help me to ovulate monthly. Then what dosage of vitex can I take?
3. I just ordered for BBT Thermometre to help me chart my BBT, How is this used and how do I know when I ovulate?
4.Are there any other natural ways through which I can induce ovulation?
Thanks for your help
