We have been trying to conceive for over a year now. Along the way, I charted for 5 months, I tried the Lady Comp and the "let's just see what happens" methods, but no luck. Last month I discovered vitex and took it for the whole month along with applying progesterone on my inner thighs around the time I was said to ovulate (according to an app). I know these aren't necessarily correct, but tired of charting. We did the deed every day during the fertile window (according to the app).
VITEX/B6 FERTILITY RECIPE
This month, I am taking vitex according to the "Vitex/B6 Fertility Recipe" here:
1) I have a couple of weeks of waiting it out, but I just wanted to hear if anyone out there had luck with these recipes. 2) And if you wouldn't mind, could you share at what point you did the deed along with any variations of the recipe you felt helped?
OVULATION TEST STRIPS
In addition, I have been using the ovulation test strips. I used Wondfo until I saw what looked like a positive and then took a spendy Clearblue Easy one to confirm. I have to say, just seeing something with a positive made me smile. Lol. We did the deed on the day that I got a positive LH surge. The next morning, I had a negative but we did the deed again.
TREASURE OF THE EAST FERTILITY FORMULA FM27-c
Oh, I also started taking a "Fertility Speciality Formulas" of herbs by Treasure of the East that my friend gave to me (purchased from her acupuncturist, but never used them as she got pregnant quickly). It took it during the fertile window...pretty aggressively but according to directions and then stopped once I ovulated. In case anyone is interested, ingredients are: Cuscuta seed, Rehmannia root (processed), Codnopsis root, Dioscorea rhizome, Atractylodes rhyzome (cooked), Dipascus root, Loranthus stem, Licorice root, Eucommia bark, White peony root (cooked), Lycium fruit in gelatin capsules.
And good luck to all of us!
