Mine is/was pink. It looks more purple now because it's almost a week old. AF showed up on schedule so it was either an evap or chemical or something.

Well, I am out this month. AF showed this morning. I highly suspect a chemical this cycle, but we are on to another round regardless. DH will appreciate the extra action smile.gif

Well, after those two positive looking strips, I took two more, definite, without a doubt, positive. Was going to take my digital this morning,, af showed up with a vengeance, as I suspected. Very, very painful, still not a lot of blood, but really painful. So ladies, I'm out. Good luck to all of you in the upcoming months. As I said, I will be a Lurker from now on. If anything major happens, I will let you all know. I will be flying from Alaska to West Virginia in 6 days, I will get to see my 6 year old son, Domonique Marquess, for the first time, other than Skype, since Valentine's day. I get to watch him graduate Kindergarten on the 10th, then my boyfriend, my son, and I will be flying back to Alaska on the 15th. A lot to do this upcoming month. Not a lot of baby making, lh strip taking, temping, worrying and wondering, and hcg dipping time, in my near future. I wish you all the best of luck, I hope you all get beautiful BFP, and you get a beautiful bundle of joy 9 months later. I'm sure I will get mine at some point, right now just must not be my time. Thank you ladies for all the advise, you have helped me hold it together during these twws. I hope it will not bother you,, if I chime in now and then. Once again, Thank you ladies. Good luck

Oh Yea, just to add to that, I've looked into a lawyer. In 2010, I had mirena inserted, However, one day, I could not locate my strings, went to the doctor, they did a lot of yanking and pulling, saying they seen the strings, However, did not. Then they placed another one in, instead of doing the tubal litigation I wanted, saying that one day, I may want another child, bit they did not tell me that the mirena could cause me to be infertile. I had it taken out, since then...two lost babies, and now...no luck and trying so very hard. I didn't want to admit that it could be possible for me to be infertile, I'm only 30 years old. However, now I think I actually may be. So, as I said, I looked into a lawyer, I guess I will go through some testing, then we will go from there.

The tea also has vitex and red raspberry leaf in it. I also have red raspberry leaf capsules. I had AF from April 8th - 12th and now there's no sign of her. I hope she comes soon so I can start over again. I read a lot of good reviews of the FertiliTea on Amazon, there's a lot of women who have PCOS or just irregular cycles and they started drinking the tea and it helped regulate their cycles. It can't hurt to try!

My first son was a big surprise to me too. I kind of had baby fever, but me and my ex weren't trying as we hadn't been together for that long. I now have a very energetic almost 4 year old haha! I'm hoping that my body is just still regulating after being on Mirena for 4 years. This is only my second month of TTC. Maybe I'll get lucky next month. I hope so.

I hope you can figure out your cycles! It's so different actually TTC after you've already gotten pregnant once by surprise.

Hi there, I am new to this forum.  I started taking vitex after going off of birth control, my cycles were so irregular.  I had great and almost immediate results after taking vitex, I ovulated almost right away and my cycles have gone back to normal!  I hope you both have similar results!  I will stop taking it once I get a BFP!

Cressy the other supp that is quite good for balancing hormones is 'maca' particularly in the gelatinized form... Mama blue, have you tried it? Mamacats on the moon thread took it first time this month, her bfp was soo dark soo early... Lol so I'm trying it out... Are you going to do the same protocol again next month? I'm just in recovery mode, had my first job interview in years on Wednesday, along with what appears to be a very painful early loss... Still a little tender, but I know the baby will be back soon... Hugs to all!

me 39, DH 39, one no babies yet due to previous poor health. Trying to make up for it now (TTC since November 2012) At least one confirmed chem.Ivf #1 march 2014 - 6 day 6 blasts, two transferred bfn, 4 frosties in waiting. Ivf #2 may, cancelled, Ivf #3 July... Waiting

Check that out to have a look... Some ladies put me onto it - regulates hormones and gives you lots of energy... Worth a try 😄

Thanx, i checked it out, seems worth a try!  I ordered some off amazon, ill probably start it next cycle, it isn't supposed to be here until around the 12th, and I will still be out of town until the 16th!  Or do you think I should start taking it when I get back?

I used to take maca a few years ago when I wasn't TTC. I didn't really notice a difference with how I felt, but it certainly wouldn't hurt to try it in conjunction with everything else. It does have a noticeable effect on some people right away. For example, my BFF noticed a huge upswing with her libido. She saved it for date nights, heehee.

Married to my high school sweetheart. We have four awesome kids.

Hey all! Quick question: been ttc only for a couple months. I'm currently about 5 days late (cd 31, usually cycle is short, 25-27 days) and have taken hpt but have come back negative. I've been having lower back pain and some cramping, nausea but no sporting. Any ideas on if I could be preg? Am I just being impatient? Ha! Thanks ladies

An increase in sex drive is always good. Can't go wrong with that. Haha, Thank all you ladies so much, I appreciate all of your advice. I was thinking I would start taking it when I got back, then it would give me a head start into my next cycle. Wish me luck.

Mama blue - mamacats did some research and apparently the 'gelatinized' version is better for energy levels... To activate the raw a couple of them were emptying 3-4 capsules in some warm (boiled) water.. Apparently that made all the difference. For me no energy boost on 1 capsule (500mg) but when I upped it to two (two days ago) there is a good 5 hours afterwards where I am bouncing off the walls 😄😜... My aim is to get dh to take it, get that libido up so the lh part if the cycle goes fast! Mamacats was on 1500 (3 caps) by the time she got her bfp... (Where the test was almost as dark as the control!) it's cool you've used it before 😄 and hilarious re your friend!
Cressy it's meant to help all the endocrine system so it may even help with some of your normal health stuff... It can't hurt to try 😄
