I know I should just throw in the towel...but for some odd reason I just can't get off the TTC wagon!!!

I'm currently on CD 84... with my age, I'm lucky to have a cycle at all!

I've tried just about everything possible to buy over the counter...that's where my question comes in.

I've found a tequila that is made with damiana. It's supposed to naturally increase the estrogen levels. The bottle is even in the shape of a pregnant woman's torso! I've had this bottle for a year or so and just haven't had the nerve to try it...but, since AF refuses to visit on her own, I'm thinking it's time to crack that sucker open!!!

So, do I throw in the towel or go ahead and have a couple margaritas for a couple weeks to see what happens???

Hi Dawna! Good to see you again

I think we get to a point where we are willing to try anything, right? If I was sure I wasn't PG and I was not going to be driving anywhere I would give it a go. Have you spoken to any Dr's about doing this?

So good to be back! I've missed you guys - even tho I lurk all the time!!!

I've only recently gone back to work (two years unemployed!!!) and will have insurance soon...then I'll be going to a doctor. Only to be told that I'm old and should accept it... (written completely in sarcastic font!!!)

Well, technically, I am 50...but they don't take into account that I got my first AF at 38....duhhhhh....

Hello there...I remembered you too!!!

I tested this morning and got my stark white BFN....so tonight is tequila night!!!
I think I'll just drink a couple shots straight and go from there....

I will definitely keep you posted!

You know something my mom said recently, is that feeling never truly goes away. That she still gets a longing for a baby now and again.

Hi! I think you should give it a try and drink up! Have you tried accupuncture?
If DH has no SA issues you might want to try accupuncture if you haven't already.

Good luck!
