    Congrats!! I've read quite a few people getting their BFP at 9dpo especially if using a frer.

    Still waiting...the way I'm going I'll have to migrate to the May thread . CD23 today and still no signs of O. Looks like the vitex hasn't shortened my cycle at all - I can't decide whether to continue taking it or not

    Is this the first month you're taking vitex @Pluto80 ? I took it for quite a while (until I finally put two and two together and realised it was breaking my skin out really badly and making me into an angry monster) but I remember it shortened my cycle the first month I took it and I thought it was the best herb in the world - but then every month from then on my cycle was back to the length it always was, whether I was taking it or not. After a bit of research, I found it was common for it to work once or twice to shorten a cycle, then stop.

    Just had a call from my clinic to say we definitely have a "lovely looking" blastocyst to transfer today! I'm so nervous. Even though this is my second IVF cycle, it's my first embryo transfer 😊

    This is my first cycle trying it - am sick of crazy irregular cycles and my luteal phase is also only 10-11 days so was hoping it would help with that. I'm wondering now if stopping it would delay ovulation even more??

    That's such great news about your transfer today - how exciting, hope it goes well xx

    There was one or two other times when I had a shorter cycle on it and I remember on those cycles I only took it for about a week at the beginning then stopped, so for me, I don't think stopping delayed O anymore than it would have in the first place. My follicular phase is the issue, not luteal, so it was probably not going to do me much good anyway. I do know some people have said it can take a few months for it to start working, so since its your LP you're trying to lengthen (which is what vitex is really for) maybe try it for a little while longer and see what happens? Have you had any of your hormones tested?

    Thanks for the good wishes too 😊 x

    No tests done yet, my gp referred me to a fertility specialist after my miscarriage as its my second consecutive loss (despite the first being an ectopic in 2008!) but my appointment isn't until August . I can hear my clock ticking the closer I get to 36 so starting to stress a little .

    Thanks for sharing you vitex experiences - I'll persevere and keep taking it this cycle unless I hit cd35 without ovulating, the latest I've ovulated is cd33 which was actually the cycle I got pregnant!! I do wonder if I miscarried as I ovulated so late but my gp couldn't tell me anything so something to ask the FS when I finally see her.

    It's horrible having to wait for the FS appointments isn't it. I actually managed to get my GP to do a heap of other tests for me before my FS appointment (thyroid - found out I have hashimotos, androgens - have PCOS, iron levels- found out I have a genetic disorder that causes high iron etc etc) so I had some info to take to my first FS appointment.

    I know what you mean about hearing the clock ticking. I've never been bothered by birthdays until now - my 37th birthday is coming up and I want time to slow down! 😳
