I start taking my down regging drugs this week for my first IVF attempt. I will continue with my vitamins and I know that I have to stop taking herbal remedies such as agnus castus as it can interfere with the drugs but wondered about the Bachs flower remedies and also the Australian bush flower remedies (She Oak). Are these safe while I am taking the IVF drugs?

Any advice appreciated!

Hi

Yep, I took Bach Flower Remedies through all my treatments as I was told that they were safe.

If you have a little search on this website you'll find some other posts discussing it....

Good luck

Hi there

I was given a custom made mix of Australian Bush flower essences which I took throughout my last IUI cycle. This was made up for me especially by a specialist in flower essences at the health clinic where I have my acupuncture; my acupuncturist approved the essences as being safe for use alongside my acupuncture and IUI treatment (for which I was downregging when I started taking the essences).

I don't know whether they helped because I was doing so many other things to try to stay relaxed at the same time (!), but I know that She Oak was one of the essences in the mix I was given, so it should be safe.

Best wishes
