After 3 cycles of clomid and no pregnancy I've decided to try some new stuff.

I've started taking Pregnancy Prep. So far it is awesome. It has vitex in it, but for some reason it isn't making me feel like a depressed zombie. That's what happened when I tried to take vitex. It's still soon to tell if it will have the desired affects.

I have red raspberry leaf tea on order. This will help to tone my uterus and possibly thicken my lining if needed.

Also I'm drinking aloe vera juice and chlorophyll. These should help to detox my body and even hormones.

The strangest thing I found by far is castor oil treatment. You lay a castor oil pack over your abdomen covered with a piece of plastic wrap and then a hot water bottle or heating pad for 45-60 minutes 3-5 times a week. There are two benefits to this treatment: 1) It helps to detox your system and even out hormones. 2) If you have blocked fallopian tubes it is possible that it will help to break up the blockage. I have my worries that b/c clomid didn't work that I may have a blockage. At this point I am unable to go in for an HSG to find out, so I thought what could it hurt to try this just in case there is some kind of blockage.

I'm sure hoping that some of this will make a difference.

Good luck with the new tries hunni.

Always remember that clomid has its side effects with CM and you NEED cm to conceive and if clomid helps with ovulation it can still take a few cycles to conceive.

Good luck! Those all sound like great choices. After I see my doctor, based on what they say, I think I'll start with pregnancy prep because everyone says such good things about it. My fingers are crossed for you.

You make a good point. I started freaking out for that exact reason. I know that I will not get more than 3 more tries with the Clomid. I thought it would be a good idea to take a break, and do some things that might help to even out my hormones and thicken my lining so that I can maybe come up with some better cm. If I don't get knocked up here in the next several months trying these natural remedies then I will probably go back to Clomid.

Yes you should most certainly try it if your doctor doesn't end up giving you an alternate remedy. Yesterday was my 3rd day taking it, and I'm noticing that it is just making me feel good. Even if it doesn't help me with ovulation I'm still digging on it b/c it's giving me loads of positive energy. I love this stuff! What's really cool is that it's not that expensive. I paid like $13.00 for a 30 day supply on Amazon.

I couldn't remember which one of you ladies was talking about this like a week or so ago. I have to thank you for introducing it. I never would have known otherwise.
