I have a new regimen!

While I wait for this cycle to end already, I have tweaked things a bit. I also may be doing clomid or femara + IUI this cycle, so some supplements may stop taking this cycle if I get the go ahead to do fertility meds.

One of the reasons I am tweaking is that all of my previous regimen worked a little too well. I believe my BMI got too low, and I flat out stopped egg maturation. Around 12 dpo I realized this, curbed workouts and started eating more carbs and then I did O a little over a week later, which was late for me relatively speaking. This has happened once before too.
