Honestly, when I started drinking FertiliTea over a month ago, I had no idea what to expect. I was nervous but pretty hopeful, and you know we all get a little desperate so I figured I didn't have a lot to lose - it's not like anything had worked for me yet, since I was (and am) still ttc.
The first few days I drank it, I had some brown spotting after AF. I was a little worried, but from talking with others I assume that this was just the tea at work- giving my system a good clean to start fresh. I think this could be especially important given that I was on the pill for many years. I haven't had any of the brown spotting since, even though I'm on the end of AF now, so that is perhaps a beginner response.
I was drinking two or three cups a day and started getting sick of the taste (that's a lot of darn tea) so I cut back to one to two cups a day and still got great results. Once my cycle was underway, I had textbook patterns of cm. No more frustration wondering if it was fertile or not. I had four days of ah-mazing ewcm (at best I used to get maybe one, then watery). It went sticky within 24 hours of O, just to further confirm that my fertile window had passed and that the cm matched my other signs perfectly. This was probably the best thing about the tea experience - my cm pattern was finally what I kept hoping for!
Since coming off the pill I've always been extremely regular, with 33-35 day cycles and a fourteen day lp. The longer cycles are great when not ttc (because who needs more frequent periods) but while ttc I found it excruciating to wait until at least cd 18 to O. With the tea, I started getting ewcm on cd 13 and Od on cd 16. My opk confirmed, and I also had strong O pain that afternoon. So that still seems to be working just fine! This also set me up for a 30-day cycle.
The tww is usually full of cramps, bad skin, achy bbs, and mood swings for me. I hated it. With FertiliTea, I didn't have any cramping, the sore bbs were minimal, and my skin has really not seen better days in the past seven months. My mood swings were in check, and I felt good. I had sticky turned creamy cm up until AF.
My lp stayed at a great fourteen days with NO spotting before AF. I used to get about a day of spotting before. AF came right on time and has been pretty usual. I always have a long AF, so at cd 6 she should be on her last leg now. I'm ready to do it all again this month!
Lots of ppl claim they got pregnant within one to two months of starting the tea. I've got my fingers crossed for a success story. I definitely think it's helping and I'll definitely continue with it.
Hope this helps someone out there! Cheers!
