Happy Meat Out day everyone!

Long time Vegan, new to TTC.... I was wondering if I could hop on board. I'm 24, TTC#1 since 12/08..... I'm doing my first Clomid/Provera cycle... No O yet (I'm CD30.) I have always had long annovulatory cycles (90-120 days) so we went for assistance from my OB-GYN right away since TTC the old fashioned way was just frustrating us... I used FAM for TTA prior to our journey and I am continuing to chart on paper... After lots of blood work and a U/S they still have no idea why my cycles are so wacky (although reporting the test results are always a nice comeback to the "well...maybe if you ate some meat you wouldn't have such a hard time!" comments )

Welcome Jelinifer! I didn't even know it was meat-out day , oops. I hope your cycles get straightened out so you can get your bfp very soon.


oceane, I got some maca, but haven't started it yet. I had planned on starting it this cycle, but I'm nervous to introduce yet another suppliment into my system. DH has taken it though, so at least its not going to waste. I hope AF is being nice to you.

Oh man, I just tried the maca and it was so gross I almost puked! I put a 1/2 tbsp in a shot of OJ, let it sit in the frige for a bit so the powder would disolve, then ended up adding a teeny bit of water b/c it was really thick. I drank it in 2 sips and OMG that was really really not good. oceane, how do you take it?

Maca is indeed vile. It made my FP longer than I wanted it to be so I made DH take it instead

I add a tiny teaspoon full to cereal. I can taste it in the milk sometimes, but I make sure to add lots of fruit to the oats. it's really a tiny amount though, I can't stand the taste either! since the husband does not eat muesli anymore it's hard to give it to him to be honest I've not seen any difference in cycle length since introducing it months ago, as you all know I've had long cycles before and after. it also has had no effect on my libido, though maybe i'm taking too small an amount for that.


welcome jenilifer! I hope your meds work quickly for you! :

Shoot. AF came this morning...at only 7 DPO

I am so sick and tired of this and the vitex doesn't seem to be doing squat.

lol Veganmama.


oceane, I think I might try it in just a shot of water. One of the girls on the 20's thread said she has found that is the easiest way. She said not to mix it too well because it actually tastes better dry than wet, so the clumps are not such a bad thing. I'll let you know how it goes.

so sorry grahnola! I also had a way shorter lp than usual this cycle. must be the transition from winter to spring (only temperatures around here don't support that theory : )

snow~pea, a shot is pretty small, right? that would probably work best if you can just swallow it at once. how much are you taking? one teaspoon or tablespoon even?

Welcome Jelinifer!

Grahnola, I am sorry about the short LP. My first 2 cycles after my m/c last Feb where like that. I am always bang on 14 days so it really freaked me out.
The first cycle after my m/c in August was the same.
I think it is normal while your body is getting back to normal.
