I am ttc and starting drinking fertilitea. When should I stop drinking it? I've heard it can cause miscarriage once pregnant?

I am ttc and starting drinking fertilitea. When should I stop drinking it? I've heard it can cause miscarriage once pregnant?

Fertilitea: This ttc product seems harmless enough. In truth though, there is absolutely no good "scientific" evidence that it will help you get pregnant (but it shouldn't hurt, either). It's main gyn ingredient is red raspberry leaf which is an old remedy to ease menstrual pain, prevent miscarriage, and ease labor. Since most miscarriages are due to genetic errors/defects, it will have no effect on this. ...Read more

Agonising sharp pains in vagina&down left side pelvis. Had marena coil for 3years, no periods. Pains for hours, same as miscarriage. Not pregnant?

Need evaluation: More complex than room here to explain. I will try.

How long for u wait after a miscarriage to get pregnant again? What's the chance of getting pregnant again after miscarriage? Miscarried 2day 06/18.

Wait for next period: Usually it's a good idea to wait until you've had a normal period. Part of the reason is that your next period after a miscarriage is often late, and waiting reduces the frustration of wondering if you're pregnant again. It also gives your body a chance to get completely back to normal before getting pregnant again. ...Read more

Ovarian reserve: At age 40, time is short. The next step would be testing for "ovarian reserve". This is an evaluation including blood tests and ultrasound. These tests check on the relative age of your ovaries to get an assessment of the chances that you will be able to conceive using your own eggs. In some cases, if carrying a pregnancy is very important to you, using donor eggs would be the best option. ...Read more

Miscarriage: Every pregnancy has about a 25% chance of miscarriage, which may increase slightly with age. The fact that you've had other pregnancies is encouraging, but each pregnancy carries that risk. There is nothing you could've done to cause it, nor to prevent it. I am sorry for your loss and wish you good luck with this one. ...Read more

Uncertain: It's possible that you could be, but uncertain. Menstrual cycles can vary especially after a recent miscarriage. The only way to diagnose is by having either a urine or blood pregnancy test. In the meantime, treat your body with care, as if you are pregnant. Take prenatal vitamins containing folic acid, easy a nutritious diet and avoid any alcohol or tobacco. ...Read more
