Well, AF showed last night. Not upset because I didn't think I was pregnant anyway, more relieved that she finally showed up and a new cycle is at least starting! Although, not so much impressed that DH only arrived home on Tuesday! Poor guy will be missing out for a few weeks now since he goes back to work on Tuesday! He laughed and said he will survive, I cried. LOL
Yeah, that was definitely starting to frustrate me. Now, this cycle I'll have no idea how long it's meant to be, but I'll just see what happens and hopefully it will settle into a proper cycle! I'm going to start taking vitex now too to see if that helps get things a little more regular.
Definitely keep us posted with how that goes for you! I was thinking about taking it before getting frustrated and going back to the FS.
5DPO and counting...
Tempted to test early, but also trying to maintain the strength to wait until pregnancy blood test on Monday week. Argh!
Thanks Shrillian and Blueberry Swirl, I'll let you know how it goes! I'll be on the lookout for any reactions - I have a very weird thing happen where lots of vitamins have strange / opposite effect on me than they should! (eg: Guarana does not give me energy, it makes me want to kill people. So does Evening Primrose Oil! Same thing happens to my Mum too ) I tried taking Maca for a few months a little while ago and I ended up furiously angry every day, with a constant bad headache that never went away, bad acne, itchy dry skin and a hugely bloated stomach). I am hoping Vitex is one of the ones that doesn't react for me!
I've been taking Elevit for a few months now, which from memory has a fair few B Vitamins in it - would you say that is enough Blueberry Swirl? Or should I take extra? I have heard of Royal Jelly, haven't tried it yet, I'll look into that too!
HD, I take vitex and find it pretty gentle, but made the mistake of taking a bit too much one day and got really dizzy!
Oh yay!! Congrats Blueberry Swirl & MamaL!!!
Are you girls the first in this thread? Here's hoping you've broken the drought & the rest of us will soon follow
HD - so how long were each of your cycles since coming off BC? Maybe you'll settle somewhere in the middle?
I've only had AF once since coming off, and I'm now on CD15 - suppose I should be getting BUSY!!!
