I had a very uneventful 1st pregnancy which resulted in a healthy happy boy in August of 2011. Then, I had a miscarriage at 6 weeks in June 2012 which is probably around the time that I found your site. Even though I haven’t been tested for low progesterone I think that may have been the problem as my luteal phase is only 10 days and I have low basal temps…96.5 before ovulation and 97.9 after ovulation. My Dr. put me on progesterone suppositories which greatly helped with lengthening my luteal phase. In January 2013 I got my BFP and had another healthy boy on September 11th, 2013.
My husband and I want a large family so we started ttc again soon after giving birth. Once my cycle returned around 3 months postpartum I was having light spotting before my period as well as a short luteal phase of only 9 days for three consecutive cycles. My Dr. put me on progesterone again which definitely helped. After doing some research on your site I came across the articles on doing castor oil packs and decided to give it a try. I’m happy to say that after only doing the castor oil packs for one cycle I got my BFP in August of 2014. I had another healthy boy on April 6th!
We plan on ttc baby #4 as soon as my cycle returns. I’ll definitely be doing the castor oil packs again and continuing to take my prenatal, maca, vitamin d3, b-complex and the latest addition to my supplements/superfood thanks to your royal jelly. Along with eating well and exercising daily I’m hoping that we’ll be able to get pregnant again soon!
I really appreciate all of the information on your site as well as the staff who have answered my fertility questions in the past. This was especially helpful when I was going through my miscarriage and was so scared about it happening again.
Without you guys I’d be much less informed about all things fertility related. I credit you with helping me be a healthier person and have a greater understanding of what’s going on with my body so that I’m able to conceive a little easier.
Also just so you know I’ve referred several of my friends to your website and they’ve all found it as valuable as I have. So thank you again for everything you do! I know it’s a lot of time and research, but it’s so appreciated!
Thank you so much for everything you do!
