Cycle 4 CD4

I have picked myself up, dusted myself down and am ready to start again.

I have a new cocktail of vitamins and herbal supplements I’m taking.  I may start to rattle soon.  I’m now taking:

  • Folic acid
  • Agnus Castus (1600mg)
  • Evening Primrose Oil (2000mg)
  • Maca root (1500mg)

The maca root is a new one which, when googling, appears to be some kind of super supplement to help boost fertility and regulate hormones.

I have to admit that I’m feeling positive about this cycle again.  Lots of people say you’re super fertile after a miscarriage/chemical pregnancy so fingers crossed that’s true, and I’m hoping the maca works its magic.

At the very least I hope it brings ovulation forward a little.

Cycle 2 CD16

After a whopping 88 day cycle, we’re now on to cycle 2.

I’m happy to have not conceived last cycle as it means I’m now out of the December/January due dates which pleases me.  The long cycle wasn’t great but was expected after last time so I wasn’t too impatient.

So, I’m on day 16 with no news as yet.  I’m taking a herb called Agnus Castus which is supposed to help regulate your cycle so fingers crossed for ovulation sometime soon.  I’d really rather not have another epic cycle.

I have a few fertile signs at the moment although I know this doesn’t necessarily mean anything.  I can hope though.
