Hi Jamie :) I have never taken it or read much about it. Have you checked in the info. section I posted about different herbs/vitamins etc? I will try and see what I can find for you!

Tanks Jasmie, I didn't see anything on your Info Post. I am reading some conflicting information out there.
ANy way. I can proclaim that it definately eases ovulatio pain. I was having horrible O pains ever since I started O'ing this PP It was debilitating, But I am pretty sure I O'd yesterday (hard to tell with out the pain lol) I did feel some pressure and pinching but not the double me over an needing a hot pad kind of pain.
So that is a plus!!! Now I am just trying to decide If I want/need to continue to take it, or if I should start back if I get a BFP.

I took it for several months when I was TTCing 6 years ago. I can't say that it helped me any but I had other issues like PCOS. Susan Weed has books and a website on herbs for women. From her articles I gather false unicorn shouldn't be taken in late pregnancy but it is used in case of threatened m/c. I would take it until BFP and stop.
