Things have been a bit weird lately, i thought i was pregnant as AF was late and i was feeling sick in the evenings, i actually did feel preggers...however AF came and was very heavy.... Ive been getting a pain in my very low tummy and have a scar from a previous eptopic, which i am worried may have a bit of endo developed there, my doc has already said i have pcos..... I am seeing a consultant next monday so perhaps a few things will get sorted..... DP and me have talked about it all and thinking maybe just get all sorted in my tummy rather than trying to fall preggers.....
sorry to hear you're going through it at the moment ((hugs))
It might be an idea to see if there is any problem in your tum with endo first, but I'm sure the Docs will be able to advise you there.
Let me know how you go on sweetheart?
It is definitely OK to take Agnus Castus and Wild Yam together. I'm studying herbal medicine at the moment and my tutor has now become my kind of practitioner/mentor as well and when I told him I planned to take AC he recommended taking WY too.
I was amazed at the effects they had. For years I've had long cycles, about 8 weeks, never less than 7 and I have endometriosis too. My specialist recently told me that I wasn't ovulating, mostly because of the long cycles. I started taking AC and WY on day one of my next cycle and had progesterone blood tests all through it. Not only did I have a 33 day cycle for the first time in years but I ovulated too! My second cycle (the most recent one) was 31 days, and I ovulated again.
I've been amazed at what an effect these two herbs have had to my cycles, and how quickly it happened. I've become seemingly fertile again overnight.
As with all complimentary medicine, what works for one person may not work for another. I've experienced this too many times to count, but after years of hunting for a way to get my body in check, herbalism seems to have done it for me.
Wishing you tons of luck. I hope it works for you too.
Yeah, I was amazed at how quickly it had an effect - after years of long, ovulation free cycles I was back into 'normal' mode overnight, It was as if I'd been thrown backward and my body thought it was 14 again.
Six weeks! Ouch. Sending a multitude of positive vibes for next time around.
We are hoping to start another cycle next year and i was wondering what wild yam actually does. I took agnus castus on my last 2 tries to reduce fsh level, so will use that again. But wanted some info on wild yam.
