Thoughts on herbal supplements
It's been several weeks (maybe months!) since I've posted anything - DH and I decided to "take a break".
I have a short LP - about 9-10 days, so I decided to start taking herbal supplements. The one I bought contains dong quai root, red raspberry leaf, black cohosh root, and chastetree berry. I only took it for about 2 weeks, but it worked!! My cycle became about 27 days! (it has been about 24 days the past several months)
Here's my issue. (TMI alert) On day 27, I was checking my cervix, and there was blood on my finger, none when I wiped tho - so I assumed AF was coming. B/c I was teaching the next day, I put a tampon in. and over the next 2 days, my "light" tampons had barely any blood! Do you think it's possible the herbal supplements could also make AF lighter and shorter? (like only 2 days!)
thanks for any thoughts!!!
PS - I haven't taken a PT. I don't think I could be preg unless I ovulated late, like cd 16-17. (hubby was away the week before)
