New here, not sure if I fit in

Postby Dimples22 » Mon May 14, 2012 7:12 pm

New here, not sure what my cycles are. Had one in August and then not till nov/dec, which lasted 3 weeks. Then seemed to be about 42 days apart and then nothing. Ttc#3 up in age, overweight and irregular cycles. Had my cd3 lab work (got the bruise to prove it). Now waiting for cd12 to have u/s. wish I could just relax, lose wait and conceive

hey dimples
I am irregular too, i am trying to chart and ovulation predictor to try and make sense of it. I have just had 7 days of random brown spotting and don't know if that was my af or not. But I am counting it as one so have to see what happens in the next few weeks if i ovulate or not! x

I feel ya! Before we concieved our little girl (who is 15 Months now) I had 2 periods in 1 year. I started using Vitex (Chase tree) and that worked really well fo us! It's really frustrating being irregular, but it can happen! TTC #2 and my cycle is all off again. Started Vitex last month and AF came to visit today. This past cycle was 74 days :(

Hey girls,
Can someone tell me more about VItex, I have heard good things on it. Do you just buy it or you need to check with doctor? X

My Dr know's ive taken it but they wont normally say antying since its a Herb (non FDA approved drug) there are virtually NO side effects although Im sure others have had side effects. I took 3 400mg pills first thing in a.m. before food for 8 weeks then went down to 2 for 4 weeks then I will stay on just one for maintenance until BFP or we stop trying altogher and I no longer care about my long irregular cycles

Tee is right on with the Vitex info. It does sometimes make me just slightly nauseous especially if I forget to eat after. Then later sometimes I can taste a little bit of it in the back of my throat (I assume this is after the gel case has disolved) But it's not a nasty taste. Just a little herb taste. You can get it at a GMS or Vitamin World. Sometimes it's with other supplaments for menopause. I did the same as Tee and we conceived our daughter shortly after. I'm still on 3 a day right now in hopes for #2. I read in some places you should give your body a break from it durring AF and resume after, but I guess not everyone says that. I do it though.
