    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    RD- do rest well before you try again. Although CNY sounds far away, but actually its just 2-3mths away!
    raspberry tea leaf- you can go holland & barrett shop (city squaremall/ vivocity) to get. Cedele also have (great world city have)

    wah just now i sneeze too hard and i get a sharp pain on my left ovary! ouch!!!! i'm coming down with sore throat and flu....=(

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    poohy: hi here n I was wondering where you were these days... as for the sneezing, I get that too! esp if I tried to suppressed the sneezing sound... unlike hubs who lurves to let his sneeze goes full blown.. he said super shiok.. but I find it damn irritating.. I got damn pissed with that esp so if I m in a moody situation. and not to mention another fave part time job of his, being a farting machine. he self proclaimed he's the fart king of the house n even challenged me to some twisted farting contest! i think this gila man is super proud of his flatulence...

    sigh, sometimes when i think this man has exhausted all his gigs to irritate the hell outta me, he comes up with sumthing new and even more irritating!

    how bout the rest? any irritating gimmicks frm your darling? oh hubs super untidy and messy.. sometimes when i m not in a good mood, i found myself wondering why did i marry this portable rubbish bin cum fart-hole

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    hiya ladies.. i have mia-ed. cos i m thinking of getting out of trying to concieve-ing. its sure looks like ivf is the only option for me. plus its not a guaranteed success!
    anyway, i m already in cd2! i think i have terrible lining after dnc and defective LP as a result! so ivf won't work cos ivf doesn't help in lining only on eggs.. sad sad.

    Maq, take care k.. hugs to you.

    red date, you sound like you just had dnc not too long. just let your womb heal. its important. anyway my gynae only gave me go ahead after 3 mths of af.

    poohy and dragontail, good lucky!

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    raspberry tea - is it considered tea that all those traditional chinese medicine said we should avoid? as in traditional chinese medicine said we should not drink tea right?

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Maq, the AF feeling is too familiar…. Either way, I will know by this weekend. Business as usual. (I’m starting to look at short trip!).

    Poohy oh no you’re falling ill again. Could it be the traditional chinese medicine powder?

    Rainbow, welcome back. Indeed IVF doesn’t guarantee a bfp if the “base” is not ideal (cold womb, overly thin lining etc). So those have to be treated before any trying to concieve, be it natural or IVF. May I know how do you know if you a defective LP? From BBT?

    Maq, the thing I like my man to improve on is his diet. He has dangerously high cholesterol (partly genetic). He eats like a pig sometimes. But I must say he is trying to cut down the frequency of such intake. Has been few months he’s doing that. I also dont’t like he drinks sugary drinks every day. Canned, packed drinks. Hardly see him drink plain water. Tsk tsk no good.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Rainbow, maybe you r just stressed or too anxious to get a bfp? i m like that, every month i see af, i get super fed up and discouraged. Then i wont want to try for the next month. its so bad that i cld lose my temper with hubs and go all crazy on me. i was also talking to hubs bout ivf.. but as you said, its not a sure hit thing, furthermore, ivf is also a super stressful process to go thru coz the expectation is way higher than normal t-tc... my hubs said i m not strong enuff for an ivf disappointment. i think he's right.

    Maq, these men really have to watch out on their health. I always remind my man "you wanna be like your dad is it? Every few weeks must see doc for lower cholesterol medicine". I think he got listened in a bit. So nice of you to bd making the tea for your hubby.

    LP (dont think dirty ) is luteal phase. It's the phase between after o to your next af. Lp defect is where it is too short. If too short, the body cant build the right hormones for any implantation to occur. I used to have 10 days lp. That's not ideal. After seeing traditional chinese medicine and on CW, now it's 13 to 14 days, which is not bad. CW essentially has vit B6 which is the one that improves LP.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    dragontail, fr my positive opk (assuming i o-ed) till af is only 10 days and its been like that for the past cycles, after dnc. plus my af has reduced a lot to 3-4 days (also after dnc) which traditional chinese medicine said could be thin lining. i have not't gone to gynae to confirm though i m 99% sure i have defective lp.

    maq, i m very anxious to have bfp.. but i must also face the fact that my af is changing for the worse.. and things aren't looking good

    Rainboww you suspect you might have defective LP and thin lining and knowing these are not ideal for conceiving, why not get it treated? 对診下药....

    Rainbow would you consider blackmore conceive well gold? It helps in improving LP. If not, you can just try vit b6.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    rainbow: give it some time to get right back on track... i think we tend to be more anxious (esp if we had a recent d&c) to get preggy. i m exactly like that and darn determine to beat the odds.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Thanks all.. Yep i m also eating blackmores.

    Now i m looking for a new gynae cos i told my gynae my concerns but she told me no issue!! As in 10 days lp is fine!

    Maq, 3-4 days af may not mean thin lining. It depends on individual. Cos for me, before preggy n dnc, my af is 7 days n lp is 14 days. Now it is 3-4 days n 10days lp n its been like that immed after dnc n this is coming to my 6 cycles. 6 cycles with little af n lousy lp. I need to find a gynae who is willing to check n help..

    Indeed short af shouldnt be always lining issue. Now I'm so much older, my af is 3-4days max too. But my fertility specialist commented my lining is fine.

    Rainbow, surely good to seek an alternative opinion. 6 cycles from an mc should be enough to stabilise our cycles. Mine was quite quick...after one messed up cycle from mc I was back on track again.

    I was seeing Dr Peter Chew. With him for 3 cycles but no luck still. However if you read up about him, his reviews are not bad.

    He is at glen e and very pro natural (won't push you to do iui or ivf unless certain that he has tried all he can).

    Suggest you can google about him first.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    rainboww..dont give up. even if going for ivf, gonna make sure your body is ready for it otherwise the efforts wasted. So better to see traditional chinese medicine or fertility specialist for advise/medication?

    i'm also going for ivf and my traditional chinese medicine said even if i go ivf, also gonna make sure my body is strong enough for it. I been taking clomid and my AF is also 3-4 days only. However my lining wasnt that bad according to gynae. so short AF may not be the cause of thin lining like what dragontail said.

    some ivf thread said take red bean soup to increase lining or take proteins?
