  • I take it now. It knocks me on my behind so take it at bedtime

  • Yes, I took it with two of my pregnancies. It did make me tired and slightly dizzy, especially at a high dose. I took it before bed to balance that out. In my case I took it while ttc with my middle child because I had a short luteal phase... I started at 10 dpo and then continued through my first tri when I was pg because of a history of bleeding. Though I still had bleeding with her, so the progesterone may have been a factor in conceiving but didn't seem to be the main factor with bleeding during pregnancy for me. With my youngest we were suprised to be pg, but because I had taken it and had good results with a previous pregnancy and had a history of bleeding my doctor suggested I take it for the first tri. HTH, lots of luck!

  • It was like really bad PMS for me (bloated, crampy, grouchy). I took it to induce a period when I stopped taking it, but it did not do that for me.
