Hi all

Can anyone tell me what womb juice is.  I am presuming its red wine, and is it safe to have one small glass a day whilst on 2ww.

The reason I,m aking is I,m going to visit my dad in tenerife for 2ww, and as all ex pats do, they spend a lot of time relaxing in bars socialising and drinking. There will be people there who dont know about my treatment so will wonder why I,m not drinking whilst on hol.

Hi

Yes, "womb juice" is red wine.  However, whether you drink it through treatment and 2ww is really a very personal choice.  I've drunk through downregging and stopped at stimms, I've drunk all the way through to EC.....I've not drunk for few days before starting treatment and abstained right the way through until end of 2ww...and I also did the no drinking but had a glass of red after EC and before ET....so pretty much every which way...sadly mine have all resulted in either BFN or chem pg but I don't think that's down to my alcohol intake (or lack of it !)

Many would advise no drinking through 2ww at least....but then some others have had the odd glass and got a BFP....so I honestly don't think it makes much difference regards success and is far more down to personal choice and what you feel comfortable doing....I mean, hopefully you'll get a BFP but if you do sadly get a BFN and had been having a few drinks would you blame yourself ?

Try using the search facility because it is a frequently asked question re drinking through treatment and there are lots of threads discussing it (try advanced search and only look on Peer Support board and 2ww board).

Good luck

Thanks for replies girls.
I actually totally gave up the alcohol last year, but reading on some threads, "womb juice" was recommended but no info to say when in treatment to drink it.
I actually have no problem not drinking at all.  Just curious if it was ok.
