    @MadSci...I think my progesterone levels maybe on the low side since I had such a late AF this month! I read the symptoms of low prog and I have them. Brittle/peeling nails, acne and late AF. I normally have really good skin (not that it's terrible) but I had a few spots this month. So when my bt id analysed with the specialist tomorrow, it'll be interesting to see. What did you do to improve yours? I think maybe I'll need Provera. But this is me self-diagnosing hahah

    @clucky_duck all I've done differently this cycle is up my B6 from 100mg to 200mg per day. It is my 4th month of taking Vitex which I have heard usually starts working after 3 months, so it could be that too. It's my second cycle of weekly acupuncture and daily fertility herbs.
    Ive got a few symptoms of a progesterone defect too, bad skin breakouts, arthritic pain flare up, short LP, early AF.
    Another blood test on Thursday, so I will let you know what my level is then.
    Good luck tomorrow.

    Hmm I've heard great things about B vits. I should know as I work in that industry with lots of naturopaths. But it's hard asking about things to do with fertility because I want to keep that private from work.
    I think I'll just see what the doc says. If her recommends vits, at least I have them all at my fingertips and herbs also. But I think he'll go down the drug route haha

    I'm sorry I don't really understand everything you're all saying, but hope the tests and numbers are a good thing.

    @79me sorry to hear that.
    @Oblena, it pretty much means that my cycles are improving without the help of medication so far.

    Hey ladies, congrats on all the BFPs, looks like it’s been a huge month for positives!
    Sorry for anyone who had AF.

    I debated whether or not to post this because I know it’s annoying when people come barging in that haven’t even been participating for a while.. I took quite a few months off BH just trying not to think about TTC at all in the hopes it would lower stress and help with a BFP.

    I thought I would share though because I wanted to sing the praises of acupuncture.. I highly recommend it! I have only been seeing my acupuncturist/Chinese Medicine doctor for 4 weeks and in just that time he lengthened my follicular phase from 10 days to 14, and balanced my hormones so that my BBT chart temperatures were super stable. My temps used to be all over the place, but after seeing him for a couple of weeks they’d be the same for 4-5 days in a row. And now I have a BFP

    So I just wanted to share that story and say if you are thinking about going to and acupuncturist, it may also work for you. We’d done about 9 cycles with no luck on my short cycle (about 24 days, 10 day follicular and 14 day luteal).

    Having had a miscarriage last year I’m not getting too excited yet but fingers crossed for a sticky bean I’ve already freaked myself out that the line isn’t getting any darker but I just need to stop POAS!!

    I had my first session of acupuncture this morning ! Been taking clomid for 4 cycles and with my last cycle not working for some reason as after nearly 60 days still no AF ! Congrats for you and thank you for posting your success story !
    Question- how many sessions did you have? And was it with needles or laser? Mine was with laser and I'm not sure if it is he same or what.....
