Cronins, If for some reason my meds dnt work this month, i am going to talk to dr about going a different route with meds. This is almost to much. Tell me more about yours and what they do.

Letrozole induces ovulation like clomid but without the harsh side effects. When I took clomid, it made me irritable, hot flashes, dry cervical mucus, etc. With letrozole I don't get those symptoms. It's taken similar to clomid in days, but different strength 2.5 mg, 5 mg, and 7.5. I would highly suggest asking your doctor about it.

Dandy- clomid can also make your lining to thin, doesn't always but can. I took it for a month and then they switched it to the femara or letrozole for that reason.

Hey ladies, So Sorry to see you all on this new thread.

I would say how is it going but I think I can guess.

AFM CD-12 Not much of anything going on right now. I did start taking baby aspirin and red raspberry leaf caps this cycle. I bought hubby fertile blend I thought he would give me a fight on it but he was totally understanding. I made a doctors app for the 31st for my annual. Hope to get my BFP before than but if not at least I have the appointment and I can talk to him then.

how is everyone else doing. anyone trying anything different?

Hi miam. So glad you followed over. Are you opk testing? Im close to you at cd 11. Thats great hubby is on board with the blends. Lol. Makes things easier for us, if they just nod and go along. I know with us, i am the main one doing research for fertility aids.

Good deal. Looking like we are all still pretty close in cycles.
Afm, opks were starting to show some color but backed off a bit. Thats ok. Im being pretty patient so far. Ill be more confident in a viable egg, if i o a little later. xx feel like i did last month to quickly after stopping meds n dr thinks it wasnt healthy enough to be viable due to my low progesterone level.

Good Morning Ladies,

CD13 still not much going on here still negative OPKs. Hopefully I will see a positive soon. I have been taking that Raspberry leaf tea capsules for a few days along with the baby aspirin, prenatals, D-3 and mucinex. My head feels a little loopy but other than that I feel pretty good. I hope this works!

Good morning miam. What is the aspirin for? Ive read that it helps thicken the uturus lining to prepare for implantaton.

Miam: fingers crossed that you ovulate soon.

Dandy: because of the meds my opk's are already darkening at CD 5. I still have a few more days of meds, so I will trigger at a positive opk. Most likely on CD 12, 13, or 14. Just depends on when I get my surge. I couldn't resist testing this morning even though I knew that I would get a false positive opk. I just so needed to test, lol.

Thanks Dandy and Cronins

Dandy you are right from everything I read it should help with Implantation it also thins the blood so that there are minimal to no blood clots which helps women prevent miscarriage. I was going to stop at ovulation but I read Its good to take it through out the first trimester. Hoping that I get a BFP this cycle that is. If I do I will let my doctor know what I am taking to know if I should keep taking it or not. The red Raspberry leaf pills help prepare the uterus. That I will stop taking 5dpo cause there are some conflicting stories about taking this through the whole pregnancy its good when TTC but stop when pregnancy is confirmed and start again around 36weeks to help with labor.

Thanks for the info miam. Thats all very interesting to me. Cronins, my clomid can do the same. But luckily this time it didnt. Waiting to O is almost ( almost being the key word haha) as nerve racking as waiting to test. But at least im satisfying my poas addiction for the moment. Lol we are all getting so close!

Uhg. Girls, im getting antsy. I always get a surge by now ( 12 dpo evening is usually my night) no go this round. They seem to be a tad darker each morning but realy light my next two tests. Its a bit confusing. I dnt use fmu so i dnt think its consentrated. I guess it means the clomid is doing its job? I keep reading im supposed to O 5-10 days after. So im almost there. Does this mean the egg is cooking longer, sorta speak n will be healthier?
