I started taking vitex and i'm due for my period anytime after sunday. ^.^

here's to ovulation in the next few weeks.

Since i'm still breastfeeding, I'm not sure if it will happen. LOL

haha me too. I'll be taking it for 3 months, then switching to soy-iso once my daughter is older. ^.^

So you decided soy wasn't good while nursing?

no, soy's fine while nursing - i've just taken vitex before and know I don't have any weird reaction to it.

so i'm gonna stick with that for 3 months, then try the soy for 3 months.

if i'm not pregnant by december, we start looking back into fertility treatments and more medicated IUI cycles unless my midwife has some magic idea.

ovulation has ALWAYS been my problem... except while nursing. I have more regular periods and ovulation cycles while breastfeeding, so were hoping it "works" and we catch it before our daughter decides to wean.

(I do extended nursing, so I might have a year or two to get my cycles regular)

with my son, I had a regular period from 9-18months and when he started weaning at 20 months (all done by 26) my cycles stopped by 26 months and it took us 5 years to get pregnant with our daughter (roughly)

I started seeing specialists at 19 because of my lack of a regular cycle as a teenager, and being told I'd never have children with out medical intervention.

both were concieved with out drugs, my son was a fluke.

my daughter was between IVF cycles. LOL
