Success Story: Helga

…I came across a ttc forum where a woman said she went to the Natural Fertility Info site and used Vitex which helped her regulate her cycles and get pregnant. I researched it and decided to try it, and by January I was pregnant. I miscarried 8 days after the BFP and this one was devastating, much worse than the first one. I cried for weeks, felt worthless and couldn’t understand why my body couldn’t hold a baby to term, but I suspect it was because I weaned too fast from Vitex.

So, we were so desperate that we started BDing [baby dancing] again 10 days after the mc (I ovulated 14 days after mc), all the way to 25 days after the mc, but it didn’t stick. We tried again the next cycle and nothing. The cycle after I took clomid which I figured would increase my chances of getting pregnant. At this point I was still heartbroken over the mc and wanted nothing more than to get pregnant, so I went with Clomid which was prescribed to me many months before, but I never took it at the time. That was probably the most stressful cycle ever because I put so much pressure on myself and my fiancé, and of course, it didn’t work. So after the stress of Clomid, I decided to take 2 months off from ttc and just relax. I immediately started taking Vitex again because I wanted my body to return to normal after Clomid. (cont.)
