13 DPO BFN, AF due tomorrow - Melatonin ok?

Fri Mar 02, 2012 4:56 pm

2nd month trying for #2 - looks like I'm definitely out this month. I had so many symptoms this month that I thought I HAD to be pregnant, but here I am the day before AF and another BFN. But, I did learn that Unisom, which is fine during pregnancy, can dry up your CM when TTC. I take it every night. So, I am stopping it next cycle, but I still have horrible insomnia. Is Melatonin ok???

I've never taken sleep aids myself, but I found this on the Mayo Clinic's website: ... ION=safety

It says melatonin increases risk of developmental disorders, so pregnant women should avoid it.

Yeah, after doing more research I've heard it's not the best idea too :( I'm also starting clomid this month, which also affects your cm, so I really do need to stop taking the unisom until I get pregnant. Darn insomnia!! Thanks for your help though!
