I am in the beginning of my 2-week wait period, praying for the BFP as an outcome.

Anyone out there in the same boat? I wish I could stop thinking about it but I can't.

We'd better get everyone on the 2ww train just in case it's a good luck charm for all of us!

I, too, am in my 2WW... and beyond! Currently 15 DPO and AF was due 3 days ago. I am positive of my O date (OPK + and Ovulation cramping). I tested yesterday with HPT and got a BFN. I have EVERY symptom imaginable. Thinking Im about to go crazy. Tomorrow is mine and DH wedding anniversary and if BFP our EDD will be on the anniversary of when we became a couple. I wanted so desperately to give him that test in a fancy box tomorrow. I am 42 with children from a previous marriage, DH is 32 with no children. I need your support. as you know, not many ppl support our efforts TTC at our age.


Is anyone using herbal fertility inhancers by any chance?

I am starting to take Even Primrose Oil (helps with cervical mucous) and Soy Isoflavine (supposed to work like Clomid). We'll see. I am 43 and just now starting to TTC since I had my TR on May 15. AF came today so I start both supplements. The soy is taken like Clomid for 5 days starting the first day of AF. The EPO is taken the first day of AF until you ovulate. I would also like to take Chasteberry (Vitex) but have not been able to find it over the counter here in OK. Reviews are very good on it and you take it all the time.

I have not tried the two that you mentioned but perhaps will in the future. I do use vitex capsules (check ebay if you cant find local), False Unicorn root tincture, an infusion made with red raspberry leaf, red clover and nettle and a few supplements... prenatals, vit C & E, folic acid, cranberry fruit capsules and calcium chews.


Im not sure if these things will ever help me conceive but i do know that my over all

No I am not seeing a RE. I did go originally just to see whether to even try with a TR or IVF so I did go through with the testing and taking Clomid to see what my FSH levels would be. Like I said they all came back great (considering I'm 43) so he felt I could do either the TR or IVF. I decided to go more natural first- just a gut feeling that it will happen.

My cycle is off this month. I had my TR May 15 of this year, started two weeks later right on time but AF came today which is 4 days early. I have read that sometimes the TR will mess with your cycle so I am guessing that is it. I also tried using the ovulation kit but it never showed that I O'd! Although according to my chart it has always been accurate. Again I did read that a lot of ladies use two O test per day, one earlier in the day and one in the afternoon for the entire time. Evidently some ovulate even when using the O test kit once a day and can miss it. For example if you tested in the morning and O'd that afternoon then retested the following morning you might think you had not O'd because the kid wouldn't show it. Again I am hoping that is it and that I am still O'ing and will try to use two tests next cycle.

Man did anyone think it would be this much work? LOL!!!

Now tell me what those other herbs are for? I may want to use them too!

Its easier to cut and paste so here goes...


FALSE UNICORN ROOT- Today, false unicorn is valued by Western medical herbalists as a key remedy for conditions affecting the uterus and the ovaries. False unicorn seems to have a "normalizing" effect on the female reproductive system, encouraging a regular menstrual cycle, and it is given to women with irregular or absent periods. False unicorn also encourages the ovaries to release their hormones at the right point in the month. It can take some months, however, for the herb to have a significant effect on the cycle. In addition, false unicorn is used to treat endometriosis, uterine infections, ovarian cysts, and menopausal symptoms.
