This cycle I’m changing things up a bit.
I’m taking a b vitamin complex. I had been just taking a prenatal and fish oil before. After consulting with doctor Google I’ve decided to take vitex. I did this for a few reasons.
I get hairs on my chin. They’re annoying, embarrassing, and a pain to deal with. I don’t have other symptoms of PCOS. My weight is good and diet and exercise are effective for me and I ovulate every month. My breasts are also often sore after I ovulate, for about two weeks until I bleed (which is always fairly light). I suspect my prolactin levels may be a little high. Vitex regulated prolactin. So hopefully if my hunch is right it’ll help me get knocked up. Also I normally spot for between one and five days before my period, normally closet to five than one and it’s supposed to be good for that too.
Additionally I’m also avoiding sweets and have brought my own utensils to work so hopefully I’ll have less plastic exposure.
I’m not going to run during my tww this time. It makes me sad but it’s going to be possibly too cold anyway and yoga seems to be better for fertility anyway.
Update- after taking vitex for a bit over a week my basal body temperature is kind of 0.2 degrees higher than normal, so it’s 97.9, which makes me wonder if it’s going to jack up this cycle. Any advice?
