Hi, I am trying for baby more than a year. I found fertile aid medicine. It hv got red clover, Siberian ginseng root extract, chaste tree berry, ginkgo?
And can u have a skipped period if u stop taking the chaste tree berry supplement after taking taking it for a while. Then start taking it again?
Unpredictable: There are so many reasons for skipping a period (pregnancy is the most common), maybe your chasteberry sup could be involved. But chasteberry has no proven or predictable effect on menstrual periods, so I'd consider 10 other reasons first. If you are sexually active, a pregnancy test is step 1, and good wishes. ...Read more

None of them!: 'natural' Progesterone creams do not contain progesterone, they contain plant products that may-or-may not have progestogenic effects. Sadly, many (such as mexican yam products) contain compounds that are actually estrogenic in action. Please - talk with a doctor who can prescribe Progesterone if you need it. ...Read more
Not very good: In natural or surgical menopause (removal of both ovaries) the problem is lack of estrogen. Giving estrogen to women who have not had their uterus removed (hysterectomy) increases the risk of uterine cancer, so we give Progesterone or synthetic progestins to protect the uterus. Progesterone as skin cream is not enough to protect the uterus, but can reduce hot flashes and does not prevent bone loss. ...Read more
It depends when used: Progesterone supplementation after ovulation can increase the chance for implantation and ongoing pregnancy in women with a luteal phase deficiency (suboptimal Progesterone production). Progesterone taken prior to ovulation may cause the endometrium to become secretory and may lower the chance for conception. Progesterone cream alone should not be used for contraception. ...Read more
These may be: Used for a variety of conditions, but the only one that has any shred of scientific backing is local estrogen supplementation in early menopause-- but even here the scientific evidence doesn't back up the claims. The risks include stimulation of estrogen sensitive malignancies. Also they should be avoided in pregnancy and breast feeding. In summary, probably a waste of money. ...Read more

When taking natural progesterone cream while trying to concieve when. Should I start and stop taking it each cycle?
Be wary of "natural": The only 'natural' Progesterone is the kind your body makes when you get pregnant. Whatever you are buying that isn't fda-approved does not have the same rigorous testing as those your doc would prescribe. Very few people actually need Progesterone for what's called a 'luteal phase defect.' if you haven't had multiple early miscarriages, it probably won't help. Talk to your doc about pregnancy. ...Read more

Been TTC for 6 months. Considering using progesterone cream after ovulation. Seem to have a normal L phase length but maybe will help? Viable option?
Luteal defect: Progesterone will not help unless you have LPD (luteal phase defect), and can only be diagnosed by an endometrial biopsy and serial Progesterone in the luteal phase. The literature questions the validity of this diagnosis, nevertheless after making the diagnosis I've helped many couples conceive by using vaginal progesterone. ...Read more
