Quoting Moses.:" What is Vitex? "


An herbal remedy that is supposed to regulate/promote a healthy cycle in a woman. But, a lot of women have gotten pregnant the first cycle of using it.

Quoting kthx.:" Mike hasn't been checked... but it might not be a bad idea. When he was younger, the doctor had to manually ... [snip!] ... doctor had to manually 'drop' one of his testicles. I don't know if that affected anything. But I'm ordering Vitex this month."


My ex had that done and the dr told him that he had a 50/50 chance of ever having kids. He's never had kids and he's now in prison for life. I would have him go get a sperm count done at least just to see what his levels are and go from there.

Quoting kthx.:" I'm just so tired of getting my hopes up.... every month I'm like, "Oh this feels different. Maybe I'm ... [snip!] ... Maybe I'm pregnant." And I never am. I'm f**king frustrated. Clearly something doesn't want me to be pregnant. Whatever."


In October I went off the pill, and we weren't trying, but not preventing and I got pregnant this month. Give it 6 months, so that would be next month :)

I told him last night that I think it'd be best if he got checked out. Because as far as I know... everything is working fine with me. My cycles are a bit long (32-33 days), but I ovulate and have a period.

I feel like I calmed down a bit with the TTC thing this past cycle... like I wasn't freaking out about it too much. I thought that'd help... guess not lol.

I seen you were getting flustered with TTC I'm not sure if your TTC is accurate but a lot of times it takes perfectly healthy couples that have no fertility issues a year to a year and a half to concieve. With that being said, it took us 28.5 months to concieve my son, with three losses along the way.



Anyways. How we finally got the good egg was Clomid on CD 4-7, 50mg.



On our losses we used preseed and fertiabella (im not sure if youve heard of this but it's a really good vitamin) and increased folic acid, stopping drinking anything with cafiene and no liquor/smoking of any sorts.



I hope you get your bfp soon, I know how hard it can be.

Yeah, we've been TTC for now 6 months. I've heard it can take a couple 6mos-a year to conceive, but... I just didn't think it'd take that long. So I'm frustrated :( I just ordered some Vitex... I was really hoping this would happen on it's own, and now I'm just getting pissed lol.
