Ok, I recently stopped taking Clomid, because after 3 cycles, it only forced me to ovulate once. Also, I had pretty rough side effects. I decided to try the natural route, which consists mainly of FertiliTea, FertiliAid, soy, and lemon water. Has anyone had success with natural products? I had high hopes after reading success stories, but after being on this for a month now, without ovulating again, I am starting to feel frustrated...
I actually was in the midst of talking to my doctor about starting Clomid in April. He told me to start counting calories & really try to lose some weight which I had already been working on. I was sure that wasn't going to make me ovulate since I didn't ovulate in December. Well, I guess losing a couple of lb's did the trick b/c a few weeks later I got my So, it is possible to be successful the natural route. Lots of luck & to you!!
I would watch the soy intake, I am not sure the levels but a lot of what I am reading is saying soy decreases fertility in women (by messing with estrogen levels). I def would talk to your Dr about how soy may or may not have an affect on your hormones and if that can be detrimental to TTC
I have gotten pregnant 4 times with out any meds (lost 3 of those babies though) After my recent loss they just diagnosed me with PCOS.
My DR said there are different forms of it and he thinks soon they will have new names but for now its all general PCOS.
I have no problem getting pregnant my problem is staying pregnant and he put me on Metformin in hopes when I get pregnant again it will be a sticky baby.
In all 3 of my losses something is happening in the 8th week he said that is when your placenta takes over and your hormones do a big dip and your body should push it back up but he thinks because of the pcos my body is not regulating my hormones good enough and I am not coming back from that 8 week dip.
