Its my last shot and gamble.

I read up on it last night and although I'm not sure what to believe (sites contest between if its really 'natural' and safe or even works etc) but reading true-life accounts on forums it does seem to do something and women, even nursing ones, swear by it helping them to get pregnant and stay pregnant.

Some fears (online) are whether it lowers your milk supply but as we're ready to wean I am not concerened about that and would even find it a bonus in getting my daughter to stop (so much easier to tell her 'its all gone' and for her to know its true!)

One interesting thing I read was symptoms of having too much estrogen (or low progesterone making estrogen dominant) was:
Thyroid dysfunction
Fibrocystic breasts
Weight gain
Gallbladder disease
Low Blood Sugar
Panic attacks
Water retention
Irregular menstrual cycle
Blood clots during menstruation
Magnesium deficiency
Vaginal dryness
Breast tenderness

I can relate to 8 of those.

I'm still going to take B6 and I am going to be using OPK's to locate ovulation this cycle as you only take the progesterone cream from Ov to AF.

Well if this doesn't work its definitely a trip to the doctors!

Seperated June 2010 from my husband. One daughter DOB 26/07/2006. BFP 06/01/2011, due september but 'high risk' for premature birth.

Hi. Im Jolene. 31 years old. I suffered three years of a short luteal phase and didnt think I could get pregnant again without medical assistance but fell pregnant by accident and naturally. I am really happy and excited to be having a baby although knowing Im going it alone this time is a bit daunting and scary!

Well it sounds as though the progesterone cream will be just the thing to help get you preggers!! I really hope it works for you and (although bittersweet), helps Dakota to wean from the breast. Are you excited?

And the list of symptoms for being estrogen dominant is very interesting. I have had quite a few of those. EEK!!
