So I ordered fertility tea and had decided I would try to use it if I didn't get my bfp this month.  Well It doesn't look like I will get my positive and my temp just took a serious drop so AF will probably show today.  This means I should start my tea once af shows.  However, I made an appointement with an RE and I'm not sure if I should start it in case it makes things wacky or not.  So I need a group concensus with reasoning.  Should I start the tea or shouldn't I start the tea and why???

Thanks in advance.

I am just getting so frustrated.  It's been over 1 year with 2 miscarriages and It seems like I can't get pg easily either no matter how good our timing is.  I know the odds are 20% each month and it usually takes 6-12 months for the average couple to get pregnant, but it just seems like the odds aren't in my favor.  Someone I work with just told me she is pregnant.  Now I am thrilled for her (really) because she lost a pg a month after my second, but it just seemed so easy for her. To go from m/c to pg in the first shot.  Then I watch a show and the girl said she got pg right away and her hb has michael phelps sperm, which I don't understand why this bothers me.  I guess I feel like I am 30 y/o and this should not be this difficult for me.  I feel like our bodies are supposed to be made for doing this so it shouldn't be this hard...

Thanks for letting me know!  I did miss that.  I decided since my appointment was so soon, that I would wait to start it until after the appointment.  Good luck this month to you!  I hope it doesn't screw you up.

Hello Chrissy!!! I just wanna post this here, in case you miss it in the december thread.... You may know this info already, but in case you dont...

You cant mix clomid with vitex( which is in the fertility tea!) they cancel each other out! Just in case your RE prescribes it to you....  I drank one cup of it last night, and THEN I read the info online..... hope that doesnt screw me up this cycle!

Good luck on the 12th!!

I'm with Melissa, I would wait. If the tea has any impact to change your hormones, you don't want that when you go to the RE. You want them to see everything your body is doing naturally. Good luck going, great they got you in so fast!

Its december 12th, which is a couple days before I will ovulate.  I was really surprised they got me in so quickly!  This place is good and specifically mentions seeing recurrent early miscarriages as one of their specialties.  They also will see you after your second m/c rather than waiting for you to have a third.  This is important to me because I feel like the next time I'm pg, I'll just be waiting around to find out bad news (probably around the 8 week mark) and I really do not want that to be the case.  I want a doctor that is on board with that as well.  I have high hopes for this and getting some answers.
