Miscarriage and Pregnancy Loss Support Miscarriage and Pregnancy Loss Support

 If so, what herbs or supplements are you taking? I have heard that Red Rasberry Leaf tea is a good aid. I will be picking some up at our local organic market.

I decided on some herbs to take. I got a product called Fertility Preg which has Red Raspberry Leaf, Yellow Dock, Nettle Root, and Red Clover Blossom. They are drops that you take 3 times a day in juice or water. I also got B12 and Folic Acid Lozenges, Raspberry Leaf Tea, and the new prenatals that were given to me. I am ready to get this show on the road! lol

We will be trying next month for sure. Right now I'm drinking red raspberry leaf tea because I had surgery on my uterus un August so I'm drinking that to help strength everything again.

How many times a day do you drink it?

Normally, 1 to 2 some days more. I've drank it with both pregnancy through out both pregnancy with no problems from it. I like the Yogi tea Mother to be because it has mint in it to help with upset stomachs.

I had my rainbow baby a year ago and currently we're not ttc but I wanted to send tons of baby/sticky dust to all of you who are currently ttc and I hope you all get bfp's soon.

 with my first two losses i was doing all kinds of stuff to be optimal. this time, with my third, i'm not doing anything. i figure that if i have another loss they'll try to figure out what's wrong with me and if not, then i finally get my miracle. i truly just cannot bring myself to do all the stuff from before - diet changes, supplements, stress over every detail. it didn't get me anywhere so i'm just not bothering while we try this time.

This is only my 2nd month on it, I was a few days late last cycle so perhaps it does? But I did ovulate good & long last cycle as well. I sure hope it doesn't throw off my schedule, I'm dying to hurry up & ovulate!

Quoting Angela4boys:

Have you read anything about vitex throwing off your cycle if you have a normal cycle to begin with? That's what the ladies in the ttc group have said.



Quoting nicoleeoh:

No problem :) if you go to the natural foods store for the tea they should also have the chasteberry (vitex) so just ask. Good luck & keep me updated! I'm expecting to get a positive OPK within 3 days now if my cycles normal. Hoping everything goes as expected this month, just the PREPPING for TTC is exhausting. I really don't wanna have to do it all again next month. Not to mention the cost of everything. *fingers crossed*





Quoting EAzizM:

I was reading that they recommend you discontinue the raspberry tea after you get your bfp because of the side affects. Ill have to look into the other herb. Thanks. :)







Quoting nicoleeoh:

I had once read the same about red raspberry leaf tea & also chasteberry (vitex) & had bought both. Apparently fertilaid contains a lot of the chasteberry & thats whats supposed to make it work so well. I know nothing of that product, I just bought it straight from the natural foods store. However after more reading it seems the red raspberry tea is known to start contractions, a lot of women in their 8th month begin drinking it to start labor & its actually something to avoid in your first trimester! That surprised me but I won't use it based on my many readings on it. & the chasteberry pills are supposed to be great to take b4 & during ovulation, supposed to help make sure u ovulate well which seems to be true but it is also recommended you stop taking that after possible conception. I currently am taking the chasteberry, temping, taking extra folic acid & using OPKs and once I ovulate I will stop all but the folic acid & begin taking baby aspirin & endometrin suppositories until we find out if we got pg or not. Oh I'm also using preseed lubricant this time around. I've been pregnant 5 times without it but those times we weren't trying, just weren't preventing. Any time we did actually "try" & went by the calender of my expected fertile time... we always failed. So I know a few ppl who got pg when ttc while using preseed & figure it can't hurt! I unfortunatly HAVE to try & use OPKs because with endometrin u have to know when u ovulate.
My best advice is to do lots of research. Not only in articles but also find others who actually tried the thing(s) u are wanting to take & asking how it worked for them. Theres so many rumors, wives tales, natural remedies that don't work, natural remedies that do, and some things work for some & not other because obviously not everyones the same & we all have didferent reasons/causes for our losses. Its frustrating I know...TRUST me.

I have heard it can make your luteal phase longer, which is a good thing. That might explain the late period.
