Just starting a thread on this since I've done a full cycle with it now.

The 5 cycles before taking LP had O days from CD 18 to CD 22 and a few short funky LP's to match.

I took Lydia Pinkham tablets last cycle starting on CD 4 (because that's when I found them again!). The dosage is 2 tablets 3x's a day. I didn't take them as directed the first few days because I didn't read the label, like an idiot.

I wound up O'ing on CD 14 and had a 13 day LP (previous cycle it was 6 days!) with ZERO spotting the entire TWW!! All BIG improvements for me! FF decided to be especially cruel and give me the triphasic message, but obviously, there was no BFP for me.

This cycle, I'm taking the liquid version because I'm out of the tablets. I won't lie... it tastes very herby. Kinda nasty, actually . But, as a former TCM patient who took raw Chinese herbs that I had to brew into 2 cups of tea to drink every day... I can easily deal with 1 Tbsp 3x's a day. I take it like a shot with a juice chaser just to wash that herby aftertaste away.

I've done a metric crap ton of researching about it and most seem to have been successful with it quite quickly, so I'm really really really hoping that it works for us.

Every since you started taking this I have been researching it and contemplating on try it myself. I am always so nervous about taking anything though. It sounds like it is doing something for you; maybe you need a cycle to regulate your body and next cycle will be your cycle!

Hey Sophie... Yeah, I tend to go MIA during the first week of a new cycle. I'm usually crampy, tired and fairly wiped out, so I'm a little hard to find here.

I actually just got my fresh bottle of LP yesterday!! My mom told me her local pharmacy carried it, but come to find out, they only carry the liquid and I really do prefer the tablets.

I ordered these from Amazon. The seller's name was AmericaRx. I got a bottle of 150 pills, which works out to about 2 cycles and a day's worth, for $15.41 including shipping.

Here's their Amazon link showing all of their LP products: Amazon.com: AmericaRx - Lydia Pinkham: Health & Personal Care

Hope that helps... If you have any other questions, lemme know!
