I know there are a handful of us and Id like your opinions.
My RE wants me to stop taking them. Her reasoning was there is no quality control on it & there are studies where ppl died from taking chinese herbs due to liver failure from pesticides in herbs. She was saying certainly exposing fetus to that wouldn't help.
So I understand all that & certainly I dont want to increase or put potential baby at risk, however, I feel like they have done so much for me so far. I mean I still dont have AF & she's def due & is never delayed even on 400mg of Prometrium. Its also lowered my temps, etc...I had earlier O.
What would you do? DO you feel safe taking your herbs? Are your herbs processed in US? I mean my herbs are mixed in my acupuncturists pharmacy & she just puts them in a bottle for me to make a tea with...
Im definitely conflicted.
