    @Lizard Yes, only off for 2 months now. Sorry you feel disheartened with TTC. How long have you been trying for if you don't mind me asking?
    @McBecks It can't hurt to try the SMEP can it? That was sort of what hubby & I were doing, DTD every day after my period, but then all chicken pox saga happened & had to stop trying. And they did a pregnancy test which came up negative. Once the wait is over we will probably do the SMEP.

    It's been a year and a half @poochella but as I have fairly short cycles it's been 21 cycles. When I think of it that way it doesn't seem that bad '21 times we've tried', 21 times getting your hopes up, 21 times getting upset and down.

    I just get a feeing it's not gonna happen naturally for us and we've decided we're not going to go down the IVF route.

    @Lizard, it is a long time to really truly try for something and not have it happen, when it happens so easily for others. But it will make it all the more exciting for you when it finally does.

    GP says I have the flu. I think the CP Vaccine must have had my immune system working against that and the flu slipped in there. I have no runny nose or sneezing but just bad headaches & jaw ache from inflammation. I think I would be really sick if it wasn't for all the vitamins I'm taking. Due for my second vaccination next week then have to wait 4 weeks & I can be back on the TTC bandwagon.

    How is everyone else doing?

    Anyone tried vitex or soy isoflavones? I'm tempted if acupuncture doesn't help.

    Yep I've tried both. Vitex is more a general hormone stabiliser whereas soy iso's are like natural clomid.

    Would either of them be beneficial to me? (Irregular cycles - classic PCOS!)

    I'm going to give acupuncture a full go, but thinking after it...

    Absolutely If you have PCOS I suggest soy iso's. Have you taken clomid before? The rule is you take double the amount of clomid you needed to ovulate. So If you need 100mg of clomid take 200mg a day of soy.

    I figure you have nothing to lose right?

    I was on Letrozole, instead of Clomid.

    My acupuncturist say in about 4 weeks I should see differences and able to "ovulate and conceive" as my womb will be "more receptive" by then (she says my womb is too cold).

    Maybe I'll try soy isos in January, then!

    Where do you get them from? Are there different brands? What do I get?

    You can get them at health food shops but I got mine off ebay. Same with vitex.

    Hi Shrill, Vitex seems to be varying success with the ladies on here. My sister and i have pcos and both found it to really help our silly cycles xx
