Wife to DH (06/10) and Mummy to DD (07/08).
Super crunchy Mama to DS1, DS2, DD and wanting a bunch more! We homeschool, bed share, homebirth and baby wear. We're attached, we only cloth diaper and we don't vax. There's a lot more to us than that, but it won't all fit.
They have to refilter all the ads we don't want, since we moved to the new software. I'm pretty sure that enfapro one has already been reported, but just let the mods know if you see something else objectionable.
Mommy to N , born 2/20/12.
I bumped my luteal phase from 9 days to 13 days over the course of one month. I had a minor case of bacterial vaginosis, and cleared it up using *only* tea tree oil. What I did was, I put just a drop or two on my fingers, and put my fingers inside my vagina. It did not burn, I merely felt 'minty fresh' for a few minutes. Then, when I got my period, I cleaned my diva cup using the tea tree oil, rinsed minimally with water, and put it back in. I also ate better; consumed less sugar, and maybe a bit less dairy.
That's all. Many, many women have short luteal phases due to unknown BV infections. BV messes up the ph balance in your vagina, therefore, cleansing with tea tree helps to restore your vagina's natural balance. Some women follow up with yogurt (simply putting some up into their vagina via fingers) however, I did not do that because I am trying to cut back on diary right now. I hope this helps someone!!!
Me, DS, and DD Grateful to the baby I lost for sticking around long enough to teach me what I needed to know so badly We love our forest valley home, our goats and chickens, and wild harvested food-medicine
Prometrium works well for me too--I have consistently much longer luteal phases when I take it. A combination of vitex and a B-complex did lengthen my luteal phase, but the vitex made my cycle strange in other ways so I stopped that.
