Oooh Great, thanks BrtnyMiller really hoping the EPO helps. I've had hardly any EWCM around ovulation so if anything, hoping it sorts that out!

It definitely helps with CM, that's why I took it. You just need to make sure you take enough. I took 1000mgs a day this cycle but if it didn't work then next cycle I'm taking 1500mgs to get some more EWCM.

I've got 1000mg capsules and the box says 2 a day, so guess that'll be 2000mg a day for me. Hope thats ok.

Do you take it from CD until Ovulation?

That sounds about right. I'm just kind of taking it slow. Maddy takes 3000mgs a month so 2000mgs sounds perfect. I took it from CD1 - O (yesterday). The only thing I noticed were weird cramps during AF but they weren't so bad. Other than that, no side effect for me (except EWCM!) :jump:

Maddy: LoL, I know I feel like a darn pharmacy. Hmm, lets see...Femara, provera, prometrium, enough needles and syringes for a cycle of repronex, half a cartridge of follistim (but I forgot to refrigerate so it's no good :( ). Yup, I'm pretty well stocked up! Not sure what the RE will be using next month so I may not even need the Femara now. :roll: Oh well.

Brit: FX there's no need to worry about the EPO dose next cycle! :luck: The provera is what I usually use to force AF to show, then I take the Femara starting CD 3 to hopefully help grow some follies. After O, I use the prometrium to help sustain a pregnancy. I've never O'd before on my own since starting TTC. Really, 5mg of Femara didn't work for me either when I took it without injectables, so I guess I probably would have been out this month no matter what. Such is life...but it's totally on next cycle!

Miley: Good luck with the EPO!

Ashley: My new RE only prescribed 5 days worth this last time around, but it only took 2 to start...kinda weird. So, with the three left from this month and two left from my August cycle I have 5 again! Let the countdown begin :D

DH Name: Mike
How Long You've been TTC: May 2010
Anything else you'd like to say. (Supplements, diagnosis, baby names, if you want a boy or a girl first. ): I currently am not taking any supplements besides prenatals; I plan on trying out Geritol and seeing where that takes us and if not, finding a doctor who will take me seriously enough to prescribe something more beneficial. Unknown diagnosis; numerous doctors have told me that my ovaries look great, no cysts, no blockages in my f.tubes, I apparently still "O", there's nothing out of the ordinary besides lack of AF. DH and I both want a boy first, Mason Michael Thomas but we'll be just as ecstatic for a girl, Melody Faith. Nice to meet you all! :)

Anything else you'd like to say. (Supplements, diagnosis, baby names, if you want a boy or a girl first. ): I want a boy first, maybe partially because he's just signed his enlistment papers for the army. i think he wants a girl he always names off girl names lol. I am taking prenatals and evening primrose (which i actually cuz i'm on a diet and have bad pms).

Name: Leslie
DH Name: Michael
How Long You've been TTC: well since we've been together so about 5 and a half years....but took breaks in between that, and coming off a year and a half break from trying because i had the gastric sleeve surgery, and so we just started trying as of October 23, 2011. Only had the surgery 6 monthes ago but the surgeon gave us the go ahead, the other year i was on the pill waiting for our insurance to approve the surgery but of course they denied me coverage but thank god my great aunt (RIP) paid for my surgery before cancer took her away from us.
Anything else you'd like to say. (Supplements, dianosis, baby names, if you want a boy or a girl first. ): Pre Natal Gummies, Calcium Chews, B12, I have hypothyroidism, and my body rejects the synthroid so i have to take both syntroid and liothyroxine. All my tests have come back good, blood tests, heart tests, had an HSG about 2 years ago that was normal, had a vaginal ultrasound a couple of weeks ago that came back looking good. I don't care if its a boy or a girl, i just want a happy healthy baby. As for baby names we have a bunch that were still not sure what were going to go with.
