Natural Ways to bring AF??

Postby vbaker13 » Tue Oct 23, 2012 9:17 am

Hello ladies!! So I'm currently on CD 72 and still haven't O'd yet.... my longest cycle before this was 50 days.... my doctor says that I need to just relax and stop stressing... so I stopped tracking everything for a week or so but I'm not getting anywhere. I just want this month to be over already!

I've read that large amounts of Vitamin C can bring on AF.... anyone tried this?

I've also heard of Parsley Tea but I'm not a tea drinker at all... yuck! Any other ideas??

Hi VBaker,

Did you doctor presecribe provera (or any pills) to jumpstart af? my doc is waiting for my dh's sperm analysis... b/4 she'll do anything for me.

i heard milk would help. as a matter of fact, when i drank low fat milk it seem to have regulated af to 30 days... but since i read that low fat milk is not good for those that are trying to conceive, i switched up to whole milk and right now i'm on cd 149+ (sigh). i kept on thinking what the heck did i take that i don't usually... and it's a probiotic drink (yacool) that i drank once every morning for two months... i'm thinking whether that would be it that caused af to not come... i don't know...

but it's a good question you're asking... i'd like to know also...

gl!

No my doctor just told me to forget about, not stress and stop tracking. last month she gave me blood work req to get my hormone levels checked on CD 3 but I have yet to get that done because this cycle just wont give up and I haven't gotten AF yet. She wants me to relax and not track anything until January and then she will send me to a fertility specialist. So she won't give me anything to help me at this point. I also can't swallow pills so I would need an alternative method.

What kind of low fat milk were you drinking? I currently drink 1% but not very often I guess.

I'm also worried about the slight chance that I might actually be pregnant and not know it.... but my chart is soo crazy all over the place that it looks like I haven't O'd at all yet....

same here...

i was drinking 2% low fat milk...

just wanted to add that my younger sister's period sometimes would show up and at times wouldn't... it may be due to her weight (as the doc would always say)... but when i told her abou the milk... she drank it (and excercise of course), she said it came... she didn't know whether it was a coincidence or what... i would like to say its a coincidence... but i don't know... i'm going nuts here... i'm on cd 150 something... at this point, i'm really hoping that i'm preggo... i may do a preg test this week and see whether i'm not or not... (sigh) we'll see... sorry for rambling!

keep us posted... as will i

Sorry I'm a little late.. but I've had the same problems with ttc with irregularity :( I started FertilAid two weeks ago today, and today I recieved AF!!! I was ecstatic because now I can begin the long month ahead with my recipe lol. FertilAid is ordered online, I ordered a 3 month supply from fairhaven health, and there are some amazing reviews out there! I started it as soon as I got it because I didnt know when the next time I would have my period and sure enough its already here. I'm definitely an advocate for it. Plus its all natural herbs and you dont need a doctors prescription. Can be pretty pricey. The main ingredients in it are regular vitamins and minerals along with certain herbs. Its considered a prenatal as well! If you wanna go the cheaper route, you can buy Vitex (period enducing ingredient in FA) for cheap over the counter. Lemme know if you have any questions :)

Just an update, my Dr ended up doing bloodwork to see if I was PG (which was NO) and then she did more to see if I had O'd yet or not, and by the time she got those results back AF had already come. But since I stopped charting for a few weeks I don't know exactly when I O'd but I believe it was between CD75-78. I randomly took my BBT one morning and it was super high (post O high) so I continued taking it and it remained high so I knew that I have O'd in that week that I wasn't charting. I never ended up trying anything to make AF come.

For future reference I use OTC progesterone cream to bring on missing AF. It takes anywhere from 1-2 weeks for it to work but it works everytime.

But I see you just O'd recently, thats great!

OTC progesterone cream? Where can you buy it? Hopefully I won't need it again though!

Yes, I finally ended up O'ing around CD75 that month and now I just O'd for the cycle after that one! We timed BD really good this month so hopefully this is it!!

I buy mine online at amazon, Emirita Pro-Gest. I have used other brands and like this one best. I have found mine at vitamin shops and at GNC, and I have heard of some walmarts carrying it. It would be with the vitamins and supplements.

Good luck!!!
