Hi, I new to this forum. I have been married and trying to concieve for nearly 2 years but still can't manage to get pregnant.
I came across this forum and saw many successful stories and also very tempting to visit Dr Su.
Can I check with you gals, if the powder medicine prescribe by her very bitter cos I am scared of bitter stuffs.
Also, if I go visit Dr Su early in the morning around 9am on a weekday, do you think I will still have to wait very long in order to get to see her?
The bitterness is not as bad as the brew ones... I tried the brew one before so I find the powder form is quite ok...
if you are scared of the bitter taste, maybe you can just make it more dilute by adding more water?
I have never visited her on weekday but I dont think you will have to wait very long if you go at 9am.. it really depends on the crowd...
good luck ya!
Oh ok thanks. I will be going to see her next week. Hopes everything is fine. I still have some skin problem hopes she can help to cure too
I won't be going to do IVF anymore for the time being. Ya. Am still seeing Dr Su to tiao my body. So is my hubby. Dr Su says I dont't have PCOS, lucky. Coz I find that I sometimes very hard to track my ovulation date. Then she tells me that sometimes I might ovulate early just that I never notice. LOL!!! Maybe it is true.
cos you really dont know when you actually ovulate... so im not sure if for my case its because of her meds or because I really did ovulate early.. hehe.. maybe for now you can try to BD as early as possible.. and the impt thing is to stop BD right after ovulation...
you dont't use the ovulation test kit?
I use that to determine the ovu date.
She advised not to do after ovu cos it can cause the "fertilized egg" to be dislodged from the uterus...
Maybe you can stop after 12-14 days of BD?
Oh, some semen will leak out so pls remember to lift yr legs up & put a pillow under your butts (must make sure yr tailbone is slanted at 45 degrees so that the sperms can flow in. If you put the pillow wrongly, the sperms may not be able to flow in & it'll just stay in the vagina)
Or just rest up yr legs against the wall..
I even rest my butts up against the wall.. Haha..
Hi zaclin29, I just went to see Dr Su today and she prescribe me with some powder medicine and some pills for hubby. Can I check how much water should I need to put into the powder as they didn't told me about that. One glass or just a little bit will do. Yours issit take one packet in the morning and one packet at night but both after food right?
I usually dissolve in half a glass or even lesser (cos i just want to drink it up quickly). As long as all dissolve, can already. However, if you cant take the bitterness, you can dilute it more. As everyone's prescription might b different, its safer for you to check the instructions given (usually on the first satchet of med)... if they circle "after meals". They did for mine. =D
Hi Faith fc/zaclin29, thanks for your advise. Think I have to call Dr Su later as she didn't tell me when i have to start drinking the medicine. For my next visit, issit that I can call the clinic and book the queue number first when I am on the way?
Visited Dr Su yesterday. She mentioedn that my hubby is okay, so she just give him some tonic to strengthen his swimmers.
As for me, she ask if I am tired? Told her I am not tired but she say my body is tired. She ask if I realize I am putting on weight recently.. Told her ya… then she say is because my body tired and thus I grow sideway. She gave me medicine to strengthen my body and also to regulate my menses.
Medicine for me: $22 (6 days)
Medicine for Hubby: $60 (30 days)
Will visit her again this Friday evening.
All the best to you!
Do update on your progress...
what does BD stand for?
We are trying for a 2nd child now as my son is 2yo. I know it wouldnt be easy to conceive.
Any idea if intercourse should happen every other day after menses end till the next menses start date? For my situation, its that we both have day jobs and husband has night classes some days on the weekdays. And most of the time, i am always falling asleep together with my son when i put him to sleep, cos he will suckle breast then i will just fall asleep.
Any idea, when is a good time to plan for intercourse and how frequent intercourse should happen..honestly, the intimacy has died down since the kid came...hmmmm...
Thanks for sharing..
BD = Body Dance = make love ...
Intercourse shld start right after end of your menses if possible daily...
Otherwise any other day is fine... but when you are closer to your ovu days, it is better to do it daily...
you shld stop intercourse right after your Ovu day (1-2 days after ovu)..
And NO intercourse until the next menses...
this is the adv given by Dr Su...
Good luck on trying for your 2nd kid!
I have went back to visit Dr Su. She ask how am i feeling after taking her medicine? I told her I feel tired only. She say her medicine very heaty but till now i still dont feel heaty at all lei... This prove how cold my body is... She say my body is no problem , ask me not to jian fei and also ask me to eat good stuffs.
Forgot to ask her what is the definition of good stuffs. =.= I’m given another 2 wks of medicine before visiting her again.. Meantime, no cold water, tea, ice cream.
When i was doing traditional chinese medicine visits prior to my pregnancy, I also felt my breath was much warmer than before. Meaning heaty I supposed. So try not to eat too much heaty food during the consumption of the powder. I presume good stuff is balanced diet Forget junk food!
And also try to heed her advice on when to BD. My sinseh gave me a chart and she ticked the dates I should BD. Mine is super fast.... 2 weeks of her powder and 2 BD dates and I came back from a holiday being preggie!
Dragontail: That's real fast! She never give me any advise on when to BD lei... never talk about BD also... =.=
I do think the sinseh has to share with you when to BD... I mean to conceive also encompasses "scientific" method, ie to know when to "do homework" (that's how she describes to me. lol). The chart she gave me is what we can get from internet. You have to chart your mense cycle dates. And also daily body temperature to be recorded (it's called the Basal Body Temperature method). From there, you will know when you're about to ovulate so that that's the best timeframe to BD.
The powder is mainly to boost the egg and sperm (make them stronget i guess. And get your body more ready for a baby). BD during non-ovulation is of course a bonus But for most couples trying to conceive, ovulation dates are important to know.
