I am happily nursing my 14 mo son Jude. I love our nursing relationship and do not want to limit the physical and emotional nourshment he receives.
I have not had a visit from AF since the month before I got pregnant with
him. My husband and I would like to start TTC in August/September. And,
while I have six months to wait, I'm wondering what I can do to prepare my
body for fertility to return. When I was about 20 yo, I lost my period for two years. I'm concerned that it may be quite a while before AF returns, let alone six months from now. I've heard that there are herbs I can take to promote fertility,
but not sure if the advice is sound. I think it's a lot to take. Here is
the list I found. The woman who compiled it said it was the reason she
conceived and carried twins after years of infertility. I am not looking
for twins, but I'm wondering if it will bring AF on and if it is truly good
baby-prepping supplements? Sounds like an aweful lot!
These are all per day
Vitamin E: 400-1000mg
Evening Primrose Oil: 3-6 per day
Vitamin B Complex: 50 mg
Paba: 50 mg
Calcium/Magnesium: 1 per day (before bed)
I also took pre-natal vitamins 3 per day and adjusted the above dosages
according to what was in the pre-natals.
I also drank a tea every night.
1 and 1/2 ounces of Red Clover Flowers
1 and 1/2 ounces of Red Raspberry Leaf
1 ounce of Stinging Nettle
Bring 2 quarts of water to a boil, take off stove. Add the above herbs and
put on the lid and let steep for 4 hours, then strain. I drank one cup of
the tea every day. I put the remainder in a covered container in the fridge
and would warm it back up
