Thanks for the good link, faithmummy. I think my opk last night is not a positive yet right? Must be as dark as the test line right? I will test twice (maybe thrice since I suspect i have short LH surge) from today to see if it gets any darker. I will test my first opk today at noon when im home from my morning errands.
Oh soya milk no good for trying to concieve? I drink it at least once every other day.
hey everyone, dragon fruit farm singapore
sorry !! dragontail, as i was using phone, i think i didn't see any picture you attached...
later i will go see...
but yes, it must be as dark or darker than control line.
Just try again today... try around 11 am in the morning, then in the afternoon maybe 2 pm too....
sometimes LH surge just come and go and many women didn't get to catch it... so no worries if you didn't catch it.
the link was shared by the other forum by one lady... it was said to work very well for some t-t-c-ing couples.....
actually i am not sure how soya milk affect t-t-c
but i remember Dr Su advised me not to drink soya milk.
my hubby love drinking fresh milk too since young.
but Dr SU also advised him against drinking fresh milk because the sperms he produced will be affected and if persist on drinking, future kids will have asthma or coughing issues.

Soya bean milk contains alot of estrogens, which is a female hormone. If hubby drinks too much, it will affect his testosterone level and his sperm count.
For the female, because you need a high level of progesterone in your 2ww which is an essential part of getting pregnant and supporting pregnancy (and in your 2ww, estrogen level should drop and progesterone level should rise), too much estrogen in your body actually suppresses the production of progesterone. My gynae confirmed this fact too.
I used to drink soya bean milk from Mr Bean for breakfast everyday without fail until I read about this.Since then, I have not't drunk any since. I must say I suffered from soya bean milk withdrawal symptoms for a while...haha
The below article should be of interest to you ladies. If you google more, you might be able to find more information concerning soya bean and infertility. So, if any of your hubbies drink soya bean milk daily, it's time to stop completely!
Soya Beans Good For Health But Not For Sexual Health

tricky, for your information..the red flesh looks like this....it's more common to find the white flesh dragonfruit, perhaps the red one is seasonal...
I've found a link that illustrates the correlation between dragonfruit and men's fertility...looks like a lengthy research piece but these few sentences should be informative enough.
"Dragon fruit (Hylocereus co*staricensis*[HC]) plays an important role as a fertility agent due to its antioxidant and anti*proliferative properties. The main aim of the present study was to identify the effects of ethanol extract of HC on sperm quality and histology of the testes."
"Oral administration of HC extract showed an increased sperm count, sperm viability, and its production rate."
"Studies have shown that both the flesh and peel of the fruit are rich in polyphenols and also good sources of antioxidants . Many investigators have moreover, reported that dragon fruits have a potent antioxidant activity."
"Results of this study demonstrated that daily consumption of HC extract for 25 consecutive days increased the cauda epididymal sperm count and sperm viability."
I think that's all that we need to know
If you are interested, you can read the link below.

Tricky I just bought red dragon fruit from ntuc yesterday but i have yet to cut them.. Saw that there were 2 sources of dragon fruit and those labeled red are more expensive..
Wa that is a lot of research going on first thing on sat morning.
I dont't particularly like soya bean. But I love chin chow! But chin chow too Liang so darn I have not't had chin chow for very long. Actually I also have not't had teh o for very long too.
I never see red dragon fruit before. Only white. And shiok to eat with sng buay powder (am I weird).
Dragontail - catch the o on the stick!
Oh I normally boil my lrd using fire. Cuz I dont't have a slow cooker.
Anyway happy soul - suggest you boil it fresh.
Sigh - I have many red dates and longan now - think I need to slowly finish them - dont't think I can buy the ready made ones now.
I find red dragonfruit is yummier than the white. The white one kinda bland though that's why you need the suan mei fen!
Actually I still drink teh o kosong once or twice a week. In fact I just had a cup of cappuccino ( I dont really coffee in the first place) because I had a merry breakfast gathering with friends and I was offered a cup. Dr wu doesnt stop me from tea coffee. She said can drink. Moderation and 1-2hrs apart from her powder. So I dont deprive myself .
Some fruit drinks stall also has Red dragonfruit too. This it's cos of the nice colour
I am so afraid of soya milk lol. I find it smells and tastes horrid.. if I drink I will puke it out.and even walk pass Mr bean or any bean store I will feel nausea and need quickly walk away :x hubby says I'm the weirdest person on earth lol . And this includes tofu, soya beancurd and taukua
I have also read similar article regarding the harmones in the soya beans..
I have experienced personally too as it disturbs the cycle, I love to have it so get tempted and drink once or twice in a month but still those few times affect so will avoid from now on..
Hee hee little hamster - you are so cute.
Oooo dragontail - mine is self imposed. I figured since caffeine is not encouraged I might as well one shot cut off from trying to concieve stage. My colleague who is preggers still has a daily cup of teh o or kopi o. I suppose I am just kiasee.
You know what. I just remembered that I first joined this forum on 121212 and I think we were only at page 20 something then. 2 months later so many posts and we are now at page 91!
I used to drink mr bean soyabean almost every morning for breakfast ... Now got to stop too... Find alternative to drink for my breakfast.
Littlej: this thread is very active and move really fast
Whole morning tummy pain but go toilet nothing come out must be eat too much cny goodies ...
Yes yes. This thread is like a bullet train. Nice. Thanks littlehammie for starting this!
Alamak. So coincidental. We are in topic on soya milk and my hubby went to dabao soya milk for me because he knows I love it (without sugar the way I like it). Told him sorry I need progesterone and not estrogen and he looked blur awhile. Lol.
I just pee-peed! Oh the line got darker oh. The top stick is the one I just peed on. Maybe I kiasu abit and opk again at 6 or 7pm. Then another at 12am before I turn in.
Thanks everyone joining in too! All the ups and Downs and sharing of info. Great to have everyone here! This is not a lonely experience
Dragontail! you gonna O soon Maybe Later tonight or tomorrow morning. Tonight or tomorrow morning can busy again heehee. Remember give him energy back After all the bd lol
Yah I stopped soya milk completely since trying to concieve but I really love it...
funny thing is I decided to take royal jelly because I have read miraculous stories, and I look at the compo, and I see soya oil...hope won't affect much !!
I missed your post earlier, littlej. Is there a chinese hall at b2 taka? The ginger drinks I mentioned is at far right if you face cold storage (not inside CS). That corner sells quite atas merchandise one. I think you will like that ginger drinks too.
Littlehamster, thanks...first time I see opk lines so dark and dont know what's the timeline it might get darkest. So you think it's tonight or tomorrow morn I will o? Gonna bd tonight again and tomorrow either morn or night. Book hubby already I also am feeling it as in my o sypmtoms are surfacing.
Oh my .. I love soya bean drinks n products ... Think I better stop taking them too sigh
