Re: TTC 30+ 2/22-3/22 makin' turkeys.

Sherrill - Mine is the capsule as well. And yes, the leaking is more like watery CM.

HBM - I've heard lots of people who do it during the day. Some REs say you don't even need to lay down at all. (Not sure I buy that, though) From what I understand the bulk of it is broken down and being absorbed within 15 min or so. I'm definitely getting at least a lot of it since it's lengthened my LP. I just can't do it during the day by mouth because of the side effects. Need to be able to work. Fun times.

oh i agree that many do it during the day but not sure how effective it is. I know in my own case it certainly was not absorbed within 15 minutes as i have gone up inside and checked to see if it dissolved... not even close. i agree by mouth makes you crazy drunk and exhausted.
are you on it twice a day?

Re: TTC 30+ 2/22-3/22 makin' turkeys.

I actually forgot and checked my cervix the other day soon after doing it and the pill was gone. Maybe it has to do with the type of covering or something. Yes I'm on 100mg twice a day. I did Crinone with my last pg but my insurance won't cover it this time so I'm doing this instead. I really hope it works!

My dr has prescribed both day and night doses

I think the meds should have absorbed by that point but it's weird. I do think I'm getting them since my LP was normal last cycle, but thought I'd see if anyone has experienced this lovely phenomenon!
yes, it's normal for it to kind of glurp out...but i think most of what comes out is the melted covering (are you taking prometrium?)...and i would just take it orally at night (great sleep aid) and vaginally during the day. just make sure it gets up nice and high by your cervix.

and sherrill, great numbers!! that is very exciting. of course you can hang out here until you feel more sure...but yay for you guys! that was some quick turnaround.

Re: TTC 30+ 2/22-3/22 makin' turkeys.

I've only done Crinone, DP took Prometrium. DP's was morning & night, but I was directed to use the Crinone once a day in the morning. And when I'm taking the Crinone, I do need to wear a light pad or liner

OK ladies, anybody know of any natural ways to encourage AF to start? I'm over a week late, but not pg (my beta w/ the IVF was negative @ 9dp5dt). I'm usually pretty regular, and planning for another IVF this cycle, so I'm anxious to get started!

Re: TTC 30+ 2/22-3/22 makin' turkeys.

I don't think making a tincture (the curing time) is really practicable for me right now...would a supplement work similarly?

Forgive me, I don't do a lot of herbal treatments...

LOL, no you would have to go buy it from an herbal shop. its the only thing I know of that will give you cramps and enough estrogen to drop your levels to start bleeding.

it would take 6 weeks to make a tincture as they are very concentrated. pills are not as good cause you need a lot more.
