This Month’s TTC Gameplan: RED CLOVER
Aunt Flow is slowly receding back into her fortress of evil and this one was a doozy, largely due to it being my first period following a naturally miscarried blighted ovum. These were cramps of a different ilk than usual, with weird shooting in my hipbones.
Anyhow, back to business: I’m still heartbroken that my body flunked its first ever pregnancy at 37, but I’m not gonna take it lying down. Unless I test positive on an OPK, womp womp.
This month I’ll be harnessing the powers of:
•daily homeopathic Vitex tincture until ovulation (and then gradually wean down to nothing over the next week so as not to shock my progesterone levels)
•red clover supplements for uterus “toning“
•daily evening primrose supplements until ovulation
•preseed-coated softcups left in for 12 hours after intercourse each time
•weekly fertility acupuncture
•pre natal vitamins, duh
Also DH has been instructed to take selenium and CoQ10 pills and hold off on wanking any more than every 48 hours when we aren’t BD-in, doctor‘s orders.
This lifestyle must be sort of like how people in a cult feel. All these regulations, grasping at straws to make a miracle manifest any week now.
Anyway, stay tuned for more enthralling details on my reproductive habits! And while we’re at it, feel free to share yours in the comments section!
