Ladies, I need your advice please

As some of you know, my DH and I have been ttc for a year now. I've had trouble with my cycles. I've decided to try something new. I bought evening primrose oil, chasteberry, red raspberry tea, a basal thermometer and more opks. I'm not exactly sure how to use the E.P.R.O., the chasteberry or the raspberry tea so if any of you ladies could give me any advice it would be greatly appreciated. I'm on CD1 so I'm looking at this as a new start. Trying to stay positive. You ladies are wonderful!!

Thank you all smile mini

What form of chasteberry did you get?  Is it a pill?  If so, I'd just follow the instructions on the bottle.

Fertilityfriend.com and tcoyf.com are good sites for charting your temps.  FF has a good guide to get you started.

the chasteberry is a pill but it says to take 1-3 a day. so I guess I should take only one. and I already started to chart on FF.

do you know when would be a good time to start using them? I just got AF today so should I wait till she's gone?

You can start today.  I take it every day.

What is the doseage in one pill?

I take is the evening primrose oil along with a prenatal - both 1 a day :) I've heard EPO helps with your CM (especially while on Clomid)

I think you are good to start with one pill of the chasteberry a day.  You could bump it up after a few months if your cycle still doesn't seem regular.

I don't have any experience with the EPO so I don't know how its taken.

well, now I know I can get them at Walmart lol!! I went to the Vitamin Shoppe because I wasn't sure if they would be hard to find. I'm glad I did though because the lady there was very helpful and she suggested the chasteberry to me.
