Hi! Lurker with some questions . . .

I'm not currently trying, but I am waiting for my fertility to return, so we can think more seriosly about ttc. DD is almost 16 months old and only nurses at night. I've yet to see AF. What I have noticed for about the last two months is an increase in fertile quality CM. It seems to appear for a day or two every other week or more. Is this a sign that AF may return? My temps remain rather low.

I recently took Provera to bring on AF. My doc seemed to think that I should be having some cycles by now. I actually spotted the day before I took it, then every day while taking it. No AF afterward though. As a result of no withdrawal bleeding, my doc would like to take an estrogen level. She suspects my levels will be low.

If you've read this far, thank you! Now, my other questions . . . has anyone experienced low estrogen levels? Is there a way to raise it naturally, herbs or something? I know I'm not menopausal (I'm only 30 and she did an FSH which was normal). Any responses would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Becky,


I don't really have any good advice or answer on the possibly low estrogen levels, but hopefully someone else does.

Still wanted to welcome you out of lurkdome, and just say that I love seeing new faces here! :) Here's some ^^^^PPO^^^^^^vibes!!
